Friday brought extreme rainfall to central Illinois, but the soggy ground did not spoil Becca & Mike’s celebration on Saturday. Truly, not much mattered to these two—they just wanted to be married.

I am an advocate for fun, smooth-running wedding days. Sure, maybe I turn a little *extra* Type A in order to see that happen, but it is totally worth it—especially when a wedding day is as enjoyable as Katie & Matt’s. How do I know this? It poured rain after their ceremony during bride & […]

I recently heard the number one thing people remember about weddings is the temperature—whether they were hot or cold. While this might be true, I have a feeling Megan & Cody’s friends & family will never stop talking about how great it was to be a part of this celebration. The father of the bride […]

        I am struggling to find words to share about how special Jess & Grant’s wedding celebration was last Saturday. It wasn’t the immaculate details that left me captivated nor the perfectly planned wedding day timeline that made the day easy. The thing I will never forget about Jess & Grant’s wedding […]
