Kim + Chris | Philo + Champaign wedding | Refinery

There’s not much better than visiting Fat City and the Tumble Inn on your wedding day. Kim + Chris + their wedding party sure know how to party! We had a great time running around the Arboretum after their ceremony at Philo’s St. Thomas church. We had to beat out the rain droplets after all! We took cover at the two bars before heading back to the Refinery just in time for the wedding party introductions. Kim, I forgive you for not loving cake, and you are redeemed because of your s’mores bar!

As a side note, this was my first wedding of a sibling of a former client. Kyle + Melissa’s wedding was a couple years ago, and I was so excited when Kim (Kyle’s sister) called me last year to book her own wedding.

Leave a comment below (either FB or on the blog is fine – but no duplicates!), and after 50 comments, Kim + Chris will receive a complimentary 10×15″ mounted print of their choice!



Chris’ dad passed away recently, so Kim carried a photo of him on her bouquet. Tom was definitely remembered all throughout their day.


This little guy had it easy!




Bubble leaf blower! I need one of these!
