If you’ve been following along with Cassie and her incredible journey through pregnancy and breast cancer, you’re going to love this post! Last week was Cassie and Sam’s 5 year wedding anniversary. They had always wanted to have a wedding ceremony in a church, which wasn’t an option the first go around. So they decided, with just a few weeks to plan, to have a vow renewal the day before Valentine’s Day, their anniversary!
The ceremony was held at St. Philomena’s in Peoria, and they had a lunch right after with only our not-so-small, close knit family. It was a beautiful day and we had so much fun celebrating their marriage, and celebrating the fact that they went through an incredibly hard and scary journey and came out stronger than ever!
Chase and Amanda were one of my very FIRST couples! Their wedding was way back in my first year of business and boy have things changed…and by that I mean Amanda’s hair color AND the little energetic Dominic that is now in their lives 😉 We had so much fun running around on this somewhat warm February day, and Dominic is a little spitfire and kept us chasing him the whole time!
I was so excited when Kathy asked me to take pictures for her extended family. Not only would I be capturing 5 generations (some of these photos will be posted over on Facebook soon), but I would get to experience a surprise proposal! Kathy’s granddaughter, Kristina, was going to be in town from Texas with her boyfriend, Ken, and his two daughters. Little did Kristina know, Ken was planning to propose to her in front of her entire family! It was such a fun moment to witness, and I loved being able to capture this new little family for the first time!
