If I had to sum up Mary Rose & Tyler’s wedding day with one word it would be “love”. Now, I know that sounds cliche but love was everywhere I looked on that hot July day. I saw it in the way Mary’s sisters encircled her to help her finish her makeup & I saw it […]

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 & […]
