Yet another great fall wedding…Jen and Pete! Jen and I actually went to high school together. I love when my job reunites me with old friends! It was at Cara and Ryan’s wedding just about a year earlier that I reconnected with Jen and got the chance to meet her and her then fiance, Pete. They asked me to photograph their wedding and I couldn’t have been more excited! Although Jen and Pete met and were both living in Chicago at the time of the wedding, their ceremony and reception were held in Peoria, Jen’s (and my) hometown. The ceremony was at First English Lutheran Church, followed by the reception at Packard Plaza in downtown Peoria. All of the details and awesome fall decorations (most of which Jen and her family made themselves) were the perfect accents to a beautiful autumn day! But the thing I loved most about Jen and Pete’s big day was the abundance of love I saw. Jen and Pete are clearly surround by friends and family who absolutely adore them. I felt honored to witness the history and emotion behind every telling story, warm word, and affectionate tear from their guests. Thanks for letting me be a part of something very special, Jen and Pete! Congrats!!
