Sarah & Marko | Patrick C Haley Mansion | Joliet, IL Wedding Photographer

I always think its great when couples use their cultural heritage to plan their wedding.  Traditions and history are so valuable and it is someone with a strong sense of family and a beautiful soul that honors and respects these things.  Sarah and Marko put a little bit of their Italian, Croatian and American heritage into their wedding and it made for a gorgeous and fabulous time!  The more I see weddings however, and all their differences in decor, and individual touches (which are awesome), the more I realize that there is one universal thing that unites them all - love.  Which seems obvious, but it really ties together humans as a whole.  It is that energy that keeps us going, and what I love about being at weddings all the time.   Sarah certainly felt her fair share of love that day -- she was hugged no less than 10 times by all of her adorable flower girls!  I think they just knew what everyone else did - she was a ray of sunshine and beauty and positive energy and they just needed to be near it a little bit ;) 001sm 002sm 003sm 004sm 005sm 006sm 007sm 008sm 009sm 010sm 011sm 012sm 013sm 014sm 015sm 016sm 017sm 018sm 019sm 020sm 021sm 022sm 023sm 024sm 025sm 026sm 027sm 028sm 029sm 030sm 031sm 032sm 033sm 034sm 035sm 036sm 037sm 038sm 039sm 040sm 041sm 042sm 043sm 044sm 045sm 046sm 047sm 048sm 049sm 050sm 051sm 052sm 053sm 054sm 055sm 056sm 057sm 058sm 059sm 060sm 061sm 062sm 063sm 064sm 065sm 066sm 067sm 068sm 069sm 070sm 071sm 072sm 073sm 074sm
