  • 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!

  • Caitlin + Ted | Round Barn Banquet Center wedding

  • My favorite part of Caitlin + Ted's wedding day had to have been when Caitlin (with the help of a few friends) sang a song for Ted that she wrote.

  • Vendor Spotlight | Illini Photo Booth

  • I first met Lauren from Illini Photo Booth at the very first wedding expo I ever exhibited. My friend Kayla was with me at that day, and we had a good ol' time taking goofy pictures in the booth. I think wedding booths are a fun way to keep your guests entertained throughout the night, particularl[...]
