Nicole & Dan's Wedding: 115 Bourbon St. in Merrionette Park, IL 8.1.14

Nicole & Dan's friends and family left me speechless.  He is a firefighter and his buddies from work brought him a whole fire truck.  Dan's mom baked 20 delicious cakes that doubled as centerpieces.  Nicole surprised Dan with his grandfather's ring.  Their cake knife is an heirloom engraved with other happy wedding days, theirs is now amongst them.  Plus much, much more! Our day began with a colorful ceremony at Dan's church.  They had a Unity Cross symbolizing their commitment, it was a teary moment.  For the reception, we headed to 115 Bourbon St, such a big place; but still felt intimate and private.

Congratulations you two!
