Nicki and Kyle’s Sophisticated Bloomington Wedding

Nicki and Kyle live in the Chicago area but came back to Nicki’s hometown for their sophisticated wedding in Bloomington-Normal. One of their favorite aspects of their wedding day was that everything was in all in one place; making it super easy on their guests! Nicki and Kyle utilized the beautiful Marriott hotel in Uptown Normal. Their colors were white, blush pink, and gold. There were also very small hints of maroon with the bridesmaid dresses and the groomsmen flowers. Their special day had a very elegant, romantic, and classic feel. It was like stepping into an old Hollywood movie!

Nikki and Kyle met through a mutual friend and they just knew that it was meant to be! They have similar taste in music and hobbies; so one of Nikki first thoughts was that she was excited that they had so much in common. Kyle’s initial first impression of Nikki was that she is very funny, intelligent and attractive. Their chemistry together is undeniable. Nicki and Kyle have a sophistication and elegance about them; but also such a fun playful side that is so endearing.

Together they love to spend their time traveling. After their sophisticated wedding in Bloomington-Normal Nicki and Kyle will be hoping on a plan to Greece, Santorini and Mykonos. Nikki says that one of her favorite things about Kyle is that he’s such a great travel companion. Cheers to a built in travel partner for life and years of happiness to Nicki and Kyle!

 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.
