When thinking back on this elegant and classic Bloomington IL wedding day, the first thing that comes to mind is the word fun! Clare and Connor’s colors were white and gold with some added greenery; the white classic bridesmaid dresses kept with this theme along with Clare’s simple but gorgeous long gown with thin straps. The bouquets were all greenery which looked so elegant against the white dresses. The ceremony was held at the beautiful Epiphany Church in Normal, IL where Connor and Clare declared their love for one another in front of all their family and friends. When asked what they love most about each other Connor says he loves that Clare makes him feel like the only person in the world and Clare loves that Connor puts the biggest smile on her face every single day.
The ceremony was more classic and traditional and then the couple’s uniqueness shone through when it was time to celebrate at the reception. The newlyweds and their wedding party hopped on the party trolley and headed to their reception at the Castle Theater in Bloomington, IL. This venue couldn’t of been more perfect; especially because it is Clare’s dad’s music venue! It was made complete with the marquee outside announcing the newly married couple, and a stage where the wedding party made their debut along with their adorable puppy! A string quartet, gold dinnerware and pictures of Clare and Connor when they were younger along with pictures of their parent’s on their wedding day were just a few of the unique details that made this reception extra special. Clare and Connor especially loved getting to spend their day with all the people they love. This wedding truly had the best of both worlds with an extremely elegant and classy ceremony and a really fun and unique reception.
