The Evening Before – Wedding Rehearsal

All happened two weeks ago on a hot sunny afternoon near Peoria, Illinois (yeah, someone here is a real globetrotter). That day I had a pleasure to be invited to document a wedding rehearsal of this lovely couple. The day was hot and sunny, totally ideal to lay by the pool with a glass of mojito in your hand. The first time I experienced proper Illinois heat. But we had some work to do! A wedding rehearsal! I love weddings but I did not know wedding rehearsal could be a lot of fun.

I tried to stay away as much as possible and document the evening with candid photos of both families and friends enjoying their time together and looking forward to their big day. Everyone was totally relaxed and so excited about what was coming. I hope you enjoy looking through this gallery with me.
