On one of the warmest days we had in June, Kristina and Liam held their beautiful ice blue pale pink wedding in Grant Park in Galena. Though the heat was intense throughout the majority of the afternoon, both Liam and Kristina embraced the weather and continued with their plan to have their wedding photos taken outside which we were ecstatic about! We explored Grant Park together for their first look, then wandered the streets of downtown Galena with their wedding party, before going back to Grant Park for their ceremony. With their family and friends by their sides, the people that mean the most to them in the world, these two pledged their love and commitment to one another for the rest of their lives. The smiles on their faces said it all. They were so happy to be joining their lives together! Their reception at DeSoto was so fun and unique! The entered in the courtyard and danced their first dance right away to kick off the celebration. We then all gathered in the upstairs ballroom for the meal, toasts, cake cutting and blessings, and then we returned to the courtyard for their parent dances and all the fun dancing!!! Alex with The After Party kept the music going in both locations throughout the night and so much fun was held by all! Enjoy the photos from their day!!!
