Matt & Lauren were married back in May and had a beautiful ceremony and reception out in Geneva, IL. It was a wonderful day, although there were a few misty moments with some light rain. All in all it turned out beautifully. The only sad part was that the outdoor ceremony had to be relocated indoors – however Riverside Receptions was able to accommodate it and everything went off without a hitch.
Here’s a little info from Lauren about how she and Matt met and a bit about the wedding day.
We met in International Business class at North Central College in Naperville, IL. A few weeks into class we happened to be at the same party and we hit it off immediately. We have been dating for 8 years. Yes, we said 8!!! When we got engaged all of our family and friends couldn’t believe it finally happened. As you can imagine, everyone is looking forward to seeing us get married.
One special touch for our wedding is the fireplace in the reception room. I lost all of my grandparents within the last few years and Matt recently lost of one his grandmothers. We wanted our lost family members to be there with us to celebrate our wedding day and will have a memorial on the fireplace.
As always, please take a look at some of my favorite images and a slideshow. I will be out at Riverside Receptions again in the next few months for another beautiful event!
