Jenny and John’s Orpheum Theatre Wedding

Jenny and John share a mutual love of all things music and theater. They decided to celebrate their marriage at a venue that means to much to them and showcases their personality; the Orpheum Theatre in Galesburg IL. Jenny played her first symphony concert on the Orpheum stage and also had her first solo in a production there! Jenny and John met at an audition in New York City. At the audition they were both told by fellow colleagues “You have to meet John” or “You have to meet Jenny!” Finally through various callbacks John and Jenny meet and to quote Jenny’s words “I finally met the man that would eventually cast me in the role of his wife.” They knew early on that they shared a connection that would last a lifetime.

Together John and Jenny have a zest for life. They have both have multiple passions such as landscaping for John and a nutritional chef for Jenny. They both have a deep understanding for each other because of both of their many passions and how they play into their lives. They are the happiest when they are traveling and together they have been all over the world. John is originally from the Northeast of England so they have traveled there a few times along with Dublin, Paris, Bologna. In the U.S they’ve been everywhere from Napa, San Francisco, San Antonio, Orlando, Maine and of course NYC.

Their October wedding was breathtaking. It had a beautiful classic and elegant feel with so many fun and meaningful touches sprinkled in. When thinking about color for the day Jenny and John decided to play off the colors of the Orpheum theatre, gold and burgundy. Jenny’s dress was a gorgeous cathedral style gown which fit the elegant and classic theme of their wedding perfectly! Jenny gave John a surprise gift of cufflinks made out of sixpence coins from his birth year set in Rose Gold. Jenny also tied a sixpence to my shoe that John gave her a few months after they met…I just loved all their meaningful touches!

Jenny and John’s wedding was truly a gathering of so many people from different chapter of their life from all over the world. They showcased their personality with it being in the Orpheum Theatre and ultimately had the most perfect day; exactly how they envisioned it.

 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.
