Alice Campbell Alumni Center Wedding and Reception
Something good was going to happen on this day, I just knew it. Originally Liz and Lee had planned to have a lovely outside wedding on the terrace of the Alice Campbell Alumni Center building. Located on the west side of the campus of the University of Illinois. But the weather decided not to cooperate and a torrential down pour began about fifteen minutes before the ceremony was to start. This was one of those, it rained ‘cats and dogs’ storms. Wisely, about an hour before the ceremony began Liz called it to be brought inside. So while it turned to night time darkness outside, everyone inside was safe and dry. The ceremony went off without a hitch right on time. A beautiful ceremony filed with lots of laughter and tears. Through it all Liz was undaunted. I know many a bride who would have been so disappointed and in tears. Once the ceremony was over we moved to the second floor for family photos. By the time we were done with these we were able to go outside for a few bride and groom portraits. The evening turned into a fantastic party with ‘Hey Jimmy‘ rockin the dance floor! The dance floor was full all evening. In spite of the rain we were able to get some great photos of a fantastic wedding! We wish you guys many years of happiness! Thank you for having us be there.
Thanks to Bridget for helping me with this one while my regular was taking in a little R&R on the East coast.
