I then headed over to the church and met up with Eric! He was ready to go on his wedding day!The sanctuary was stunning with candlelight lighting both sides of the entire aisle!At our planning session, Jessica had teased Eric that he would get emotional at the ceremony, and he didn't disappoint! I love this image of him seeing his bride for the first time walking down the aisle! The band started the parade down the street....
...with Eric and Jessica leading their guests along the way!
After the wedding, we headed over to Easter Illinois University's campus for wedding party portraits!
One of my all-time favorite images of the day, I love the look in Jessica's eyes at her groom!
Jessica and Eric's reception was held in one of the ballroom's at Eastern Illinois University. Jessica' mother did a fabulous job of transforming the ballroom into a gorgeous reception bathed in golds, creams, and pinks.
Jessica's brother wasn't quite sure of me at the start of the day...but every time I walked past him at the reception we said 'hi' to each other and by the end of the night we were thick as thieves and he was posing for me!!!
Jessica and Eric, thank you again so much for allowing me to be with you on one of the greatest days of your life! Blessings to you in all you do!
