Maureen & Jim | Sneak Peek!

Maureen & Jim were married in Geneva on June 11th, at the St. Peter Church - it was a lovely ceremony, but what made it truly special was the fact that not only were the couple combining their lives, they were creating a family - and a rather large one!  The bride and groom each have 4 kids all around the same age (in their early 20's), which makes for an awesome 10 person family and a ready made bridal party!  I have to say every detail of this wedding was more beautiful than the next - from Maureen's home to their children to their church to the gorgeous details that she planned herself.  I was super excited the whole day because it was so easy for me to get wonderful images :)

I am so happy we got to be a part of your special day!  Here are some of my favorites:

Jim & the boys were getting ready at the Herrington, one of my favorite venues!

A quick stop at the Japanese Garden at Fabyan Forest Preserve was totally worth it!  The girls rocked it:

and the whole fam:

and a few of just M&J:

Yet another awesome Geneva venue, Riverside Receptions, hosted the party:

Props to Maureen for all the sweet details - she planned everything herself!  I love her taste.  She loves black and white, and even chose to have

our "faux-to" booth images to print in black and white for her guest book!

A splash of red to give a little extra pop:

Thanks to the guests who gave me this ring shot idea (this was their guest book entry)!
