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.

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.

Disney themed wedding at the Shores of Turtle Creek – Steven & Mirjana

Steven & Mirjana did such a wonderful job incorporating their love for Disney into their Wedding.  All the music was Disney, each table was labeled with a movie name and the name card with a Disney character, and to top it off Jack Sparrow showed up to wish the couple well.  But my favorite part was that they choose to help families in need on their special day.  Instead of favors, they made a donation to Make a Wish and the child that received their donation was visiting Disney the same day as their wedding.  By this time I was standing in a puddle of tears.  If you wanted the couple to kiss you had to make a donation to Make a Wish.  As the donations got larger, the kisses had to impress even more.  So much love and respect for these two.

Oak Lane

I pulled into Oak Lane only to be greeted by a huge potbelly pig!  There were so many fun areas to explore.
