November, 2008 in Peoria

"We were married the first Saturday in November 2008 and it was just the perfect day. Gorgeous weather- our photos were all taken outside. Since the day before our wedding was Halloween, we decided to forgo the traditional rehearsal and dinner. We just had a nice in-home dinner for our out-of-town guests and family. Great relaxing evening!
As far as the wedding party and attire goes, we had a man of honour (instead of a maid of honour)2 ushers and a best man. The tuxes came from Mens' Wearhouse on Rockwood Drive, across Sterling from the back of Northwoods' Mall.
My wedding dress was an Alfred Angelo off the shoulder sequin/embroidery design from Country Bride. I highly recommend them."


Ceremony: Glen Oak Christian Church
