The Wagner House – Tony & Melissa

They met playing pool.  Then as time went on their friendship turned into love.   Their day was filled with so many beautiful moments.  My favorite was when Melissa’s dad surprised her with a mariachi band.

Macktown senior session – Brett

The transition from high school to college is such a fun and exciting time.  Brett I’m so excited for you and wish you the best of luck!

Travis & Jordan

Last night was a dream hanging out with these fellow soccer lovers.  I can’t wait to hang out with them on their wedding day!

I love baby snuggles!  Little Evelyn was so sweet.  Her best friend/guard dog was constantly making sure I was being nice.  It was adorable!  Soon she will be snuggling him and feeding him from her high chair.  But for now we celebrate her being small and smelling like baby shampoo.

Larry & Cheryll – St Mary’s Pecatonica

I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend my New Years Eve.  Larry & Cheryll are such kind people and incredibly sweet together.  They went to high school together.  Went on to raise their families and both lost their spouses.  And after all these year found their way to each other.  I loved how they they had their children and grandchildren stand up and had a lovely gift for the grandchildren during the ceremony.  The cutest moment was when the flower girl lost her shoe.  Cheryll carried on the family tradition of having a handkerchief tied around her flowers.  After the ceremony we went to Ciminos for pizza, beer and celebration.  If you haven’t had the pizza from Ciminos in Pecatonica, you haven’t lived.  It is still to this day my favorite pizza.

Zach & Morgan – Seward Bluffs

Zach & Morgan couldn’t be more adorable.  Zach had us laughing the entire time.  Their love for each other and their kindness towards others is inspiring.  I can’t wait until their wedding in June!
