Melissa & George | Riverside Receptions | Geneva, IL Wedding Photographer

Sometimes things don't go according to plan on your wedding day.  There are many unpredictable factors, some that are totally out of your control, like the weather, and some that you only have mild control over, such as your wedding party, especially when you have little ones.  When you decide to pick the people who will stand up with you, its not just about who you choose to witness your marriage, but its also about the people who you love the MOST and want to hang out with all day.  That group of individuals you would pick if you said "If I had one day to enjoy, who would I bring with me..."  That list of people may change and grow over time, but the ones that were with you on your wedding day will always be special.  If there are special children in your life, including them can, of course, add a little drama to the day.  However, the delightful adventure children can bring can be one of the most fun parts of a wedding.  They are enchanted by the fantasy and unfazed by the social "rules".  They are candid, and emotional and adorable.   Melissa and George had three little ones they brought with them (along with the older crowd) and I can't imagine their day could have been any more beautiful and full of love.  I can honestly say I felt they enjoyed EVERY part of their day, whether it was according to plan or not... and that is how life in general should be lived. <3 001mg 002mg 003mg 004mg 005mg 006mg 007mg 008mg 009mg 010mg 011mg 012mg 013mg 014mg 015mg 016mg 017mg 018mg 019mg 020mg 021mg 022mg 023mg 024mg 025mg 026mg 027mg 028mg 029mg 030mg 031mg 032mg 033mg 034mg 035mg 036mg 037mg 038mg 039mg 040mg 041mg 042mg 043mg 044mg 045mg 046mg 047mg 048mg 049mg 050mg 051mg 052mg 053mg 054mg 055mg 056mg 057mg 058mg 059mg 060mg 061mg 062mg 063mg 064mg 065mg 066mg 067mg 068mg 069mg 070mg 071mg 072mg
