Marc and I have been looking forward to Jodi’s and Peter’s October wedding for some time now. It seemed like destiny or fate had brought us together to capture this happy couple’s big day. From finding out Pete had gone to college with Mindy’s sister at our initial consultation meeting, to seeing a couple friends of ours as well as Mindy’s cousin in attendance at the wedding day itself – we had no idea our circle of friends had been so close. It was no wonder we loved spending time working with and getting to know Pete and Jodi.
If you know these two, you know they are the type of people that will ask you how your life is going and actually care enough to listen to the answer. Their personalities perfectly match and it certainly was obvious that their shared sense of humor was one of the many things that attracted these two souls.
Having friends and family travel to Elgin to celebrate and enjoy a big wedding party was one of those things Jodi and Peter were most excited to share on their big day. This big-heated couple first made sure to make the rounds by personally thanking every guest in attendance. Once the hugs and thank-you’s had been said, Jodi and Peter were hitting the dance floor to dance the night away as the newest Mr. & Mrs. O’Brien.
Congratulations we hope you enjoy reliving a few of our favorite captures of your day.–
Marc & Mindy
A special thanks to all the vendors who made Jodi & Pete’s day beautiful.
