Maria & Pete – Winter Wedding in Peoria, Illinois – December 3rd, 2016

Now that our recent strangely warm midwestern weather has returned to its normal winter state on this chilly Sunday, it feels like the perfect day to share Maria and Pete’s winter wedding with you. Maria made stunning choices with her colors, flowers, and decor, and just peeking at her Pinterest board before the wedding had me extremely excited for their big day. The dusty winter blue bridesmaid’s dresses, the eucalyptus leaf bouquets, Maria’s cream and peach peonies … it was all a photographer’s delight! There was no question that their hearts were focused on the right things that day, as there was so much love overflowing from both of them, for each other, for their families, and for their friends. There were so many amazing moments that had me tearing up behind the camera, in awe of the love that I had the honor to witness that day.
