It was a beautiful Spring day this past Saturday, the sun couldn't have shined any brighter for John & Katie!
Katie & John were married at St. Mark's Catholic church near Bradley University, as Katie's father walked her to the church, her tears began to fall. Her father was trying to calm her by talking baseball, but the tears of happiness kept coming. Katie was one of the most beautiful brides I have ever laid eyes on. Her dress was exquisite, with pleating and covered buttons all the way down the back. Her hair was all pinned back with a cathedral length vail and a flower pined off to the side. She was breathtaking..... and to see John see her for the first time as she walked down the aisle to him, made all of us cry!
The reception was held at the Hotel Pere Marquette with gorgeous displays of orange and pink flowers by Gregg's. The arrangements were stunning, from pink vases to tall clear vases full of hydrangeas, curly willow, and Gerber daisies. Chocolate brown satin runners on all the tables..pink Menu cards were in each napkin and tied with a pink satin bow. And for a favor - THUMBPRINT cookies from Trefzger's Bakery....YUMMY!!
Their wedding cake was a Chocolate Gonache cake, also from Trefzger's..and it was trimmed in pink ribbon- you could smell the Gonache frosting as walked up upon the cake - it was spectacular!!!
Dave and the Dynamics had everyone up and dancing all night, I have to say a Band can really get a party started.....but can also keep it from ending! haha
I wish all the best to Katie and John, they were so wonderful to work with. I will miss Katie a lot, she is one of those people that you just love being around. She is as beautiful inside as she is outside.
CONGRATULATIONS AND BEST WISHES TO YOU BOTH!!
