Okay, where do I begin? Let's start with how absolutely gorgeous Nicole looked. She was glowing and beautiful and when I first saw her, I think I just said 'wow'. Her dress was one of the best I've ever seen. Dan seemed cool and easy and ready to get married. They both were surrounded by laid back friends and family.
The ceremony was at St. Joseph's church in Peoria and I can't say enough how pretty this church is on the inside. It is classic and the ceiling - woah baby, just check it out. After the ceremony and a quick stop downtown for some shots with my favorite wall (yeah I have a favorite wall, haven't you noticed? But come on, it was perfect with the wedding colors, so I had to go there) we headed off to the reception at Wildlife Prairie Park which was decorated both in and out with nature's fall colors - perfect! It was an amazing day and I can't say enough good things about Nicole and Dan.
I couldn't have done it all by myself, so here is a big thank you and shout out to Lily. She was a big help throughout the day. You rock girl!
Congratulations Nikki & Dan! I've been excited about your wedding for long time and it was just as amazing as I thought it would be. I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and then some. Okay, I'm sure Nicole is just dying to see these already, so lets get on with it.
