Nicki and Matt celebrating their December marriage at River Forest Country Club in Elmhurst IL
Hello! I’ve got another fabulous wedding for you guys today! The gorgeous couple consists of Nicki and Matt, two people that anyone would love to know. The two of them met when Nicki was babysitting and Matt was doing work on the house. Two years later the question popped up!
Their wedding day was truly special. Starting from the bride home where we met the bridesmaids and the special family pet- Lexi we were trill how well everything was planned.
The bride’s dress was seriously gorgeous, too. And I’m not just saying that! She bought it from David’s Bridal. This is what Nicki remembers: ” I put it on in the dressing room and didn’t even want to go out in it. The person helping told me to wait. She threw a belt on it and it changed it completely.”
The wedding ceremony was at Sacred Heart Church on 15th Avenue and Iowa Street, Melrose Park, IL, the reception was at River Forest Country Club on 15W468 Grand Ave, Elmhurst, IL and was catered by River Forest Country Club.
The reception started with the grand entrance and cake cutting followed by the dinner with speeches.
They danced to their first song Die A Happy Man by Thomas Rhett which was played by DJ Mark Curcio, JR .
We’ve asked the bride few questions and here are the answers:
What advice would you offer to other couples planning a wedding?
-Stay calm. It will all work out. It’s one day and it will be perfect.
What photography-related advice would you offer to a couple?
-Like who you are working with. It will make it all much easier.
Any tips on what to bring?
-Shout wipes for the dress after pictures for the reception.
What was the first song you danced to as husband and wife? Father-daughter dance? Mother-son dance?
