Rockford Illinois Wedding Planner

Champagne Brunch | Rockford Illinois Wedding

Cassie contacted me well over a year before her wedding for planning assistance.  We met many times to make her vision come to life.  She wanted a Sunday brunch which I loved because it was out of the norm.  It was a great idea!  Her wish was to provide a setting for family and friends that included their children and was still formal but yet fun and relaxing.  I think that we did just that!

Cassie and Nick had been together for a long time and have 3 beautiful children together.  It was so fun to get to know her as a person and as a mother.   Watching her with her children was something that I as a planner will always cherish.  She is such a patient and caring person.   As a couple she and Nick are a perfect match.  Their extended family was such a delight!

Below are the images that were captured from their wedding day.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

A Love For Each Other

Melissa and Scott were a fabulous couple to work with!   I am one lucky wedding planner!  Melissa's mom contacted me and said that they were from the Chicago area but that her daughter was getting married in Rockford, Illinois and that they would need assistance from a wedding planner.   Of course I said yes! 

One of my favorite parts of my couples that I get the chance to work with is that when a part of their love story becomes a part of their wedding day,  Melissa and Scott love to travel to different Brewing Companies and Rockford, Illinois was not an exception.  It was very fitting that their wedding venue be a Brewery and Prairie Street Brewhouse / Rockford Brewing Company fit that exact description.

The pictures tell the story of their day and just how enjoyable it was.  I hope you enjoy their story.
