Kelly and Michael’s Romantic November Wedding

Kelly and Michael’s November wedding was full of romance. From the colors; navy, wine and gold, to the venue at the Radisson Hotel in Normal, IL it was a perfect, romantic night for these two love birds to say I do. Kelly and Michael are the type of couple that when you are around them it feels like you’ve been best friends with them for years. They both have a warm and welcoming glow about them, which makes them the perfect couple together.

Kelly acted as the calligraphist for the day and handmade all the decor which turned out great! Every detail was so carefully put together to make a seamless romantic look. Another element that was pieced together was Kelly’s wedding dress. She had a specific look in mind and by putting together a bridesmaid dress she found on the top with a different skirt on the bottom it made Kelly’s dream dress come alive. The ladies at Adore Bridal in Morton, IL were able to make the perfect dress which Kelly was so excited for her dad, Michael and her bridal party to see.

Mike and Kelly’s wedding was full of wonderful surprises and traditions. Kelly used a piece of her mother’s lace to put around her bouquet and found a handkerchief of her late grandfather’s to wipe away all her happy tears throughout the day. Michael’s wedding band was specially made. It is a combination of his late grandfather’s wedding band and his other grandfather’s heirloom ring combined into one ring. Kelly also surprised Michael with cufflinks with her handwriting and their wedding date on them; as well as engraved his wedding ring. How cute!! It’s details like these that make the day special and uniquely yours.

 I’m all about preserving those moments that tell your story.

Whether it’s four feet ankle-deep in mud, tenderly clasped hands, a happy tear cascading over a cheek, a hair-back laugh or a sun-drenched kiss,

The ones that move you. Bind you. Bring you together and keep you together long after the memory fades.
