Aneesha and Kirk | Peoria

Wedding on June 19th at the Pere Marquette Hotel in Bloomington, Indiana – (Post by Cathy) The morning of the wedding was the first time I ever met Aneesha, and as soon as I walked into her hotel suite at the Hotel Pere Marquette, she gave me a huge hug and said that she felt like she knew David and I already from reading our blog so much. 🙂 She and Kirk could not have been sweeter or more gracious. And their bridal party was awesome as well (especially her bridesmaids for trekking out Saturday morning to find a Dunkin’ Donuts so that Aneesha could have her favorite coffee). They all sweated through the hot weather for some photos around downtown Peoria without complaining a bit. 🙂

The ceremony and reception were absolutely gorgeous, with the help of their super-talented event designer, Beth Maxwell (who we totally recommend if you’re getting married in central Illinois!). And the thing that totally made the day as special as it was, was the support from family and friends that Aneesha and Kirk had surrounding them, especially their awesome parents who even hopped in the limo bus with the bridal party after the ceremony. 🙂 The very end of the night, before Aneesha and Kirk left the reception, was probably one of the most emotional moments of the day. Aneesha had to wipe away tears as she and Kirk hugged their parents goodbye. Their families were so awesome that even Dave and I got hugs all around when the night was done. 🙂

Aneesha and Kirk – You two are awesome (David thinks I used that word too much in this post :D)! We had such a great time getting to know you two and your friends and family. Thank you so so much for asking us to capture your day! 🙂

Meet Aneesha and Kirk. 😀

We love this photo. Feels so much like a movie. 🙂

On a side note, David wanted me to point out that the image of Aneesha’s three brothers on the left was totally candid. They were just standing there like the mod squad as they waited their turn for formals so I snapped it. 😀

Seriously. We could shoot in Peoria EVERY weekend and get something new. 🙂

David and I debated showing this one in color or b&w but in the end, I let him win.

…and out of nowhere Aneesha’s veil attacked Kirk. 😀

This just might have been our favorite cake, ever. 😀

Did we mention that Aneesha was seriously non-stop on the dance floor? 🙂

So a little side note about Aneesha’s dad there on the right. When we stopped by to visit David’s Dad and Step-mom on the way home (they live in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois) we showed them some of the photos. Well it turns out that Carla, David’s step-mom used to work for Aneesha’s dad! Small world, no? 😀

Such a sweet moment between Aneesha and her parents. 🙂

Thanks for reading! – Cathy and David, Photographers.
