Presbyterian Church Winter Wedding Bloomington Country Club Reception
If the rest of my weddings in 2016 are like this one, then the 2016 wedding season is going to be awesome! What a way to kick off the new year! A sunny but chilly January day served as the perfect backdrop for this winter day wedding. So much laughter! Jessi’s two older sisters pretty much kept her relaxed and everyone in stitches throughout the day. An emotional first look and gift exchange gave us some insight into what to expect for the ceremony. Shane’s mother officiated the ceremony which started off with a first for me. A bride and groom selfie with the entire congregation in the background! Followed by an emotional vow exchange, which had some of the other groomsmen getting a bit teary eyed. Later, Shane’s father preformed an ole Irish hand fasting tradition. A beautiful ceremony! But the day had so much more in store. From here everyone headed to the Bloomington Country Club for dinner and dancing with live music. But before dinner got underway the bride and groom were introduced followed by cake cutting and speeches. Ah, the speeches! This is where Jessi’s two sisters were at their best! Great pre-dinner entertainment! Then one last event before dinner. The shoe game (see photo below). Such an emotion filled wedding day! Congrats to Jessi and Shane on their wedding! May you have many years filled with happiness!
A huge thank you to Hannah, this was her last wedding with me. She will be missed as she moves on to new challenges! Also thank you to Brittany my newest partner in weddings.
