There are very few brides we’ve ever worked with who were more excited about their wedding day than Katrina. She beamed from the first time we met with her and Alek, all the way through their reception. When I met up with Katrina and Alek, around six weeks out to talk through the details of the day, the energy, excitement, and anticipation was palpable. With every detail covered, the smiles became larger and larger. She could, just barely, contain the excitement. Alex of course, was playing it cool. We loved seeing these two freely release to the world on their wedding day what they feel inside about each other. A joy to capture for sure. From their similarities – combining foods most people wouldn’t ever put together, to their differences that are complimentary – Alek’s impeccable sense of direction and Katrina lack of navigation skills, these two complete each other. We loved seeing them holding hands tightly, bringing their heads together, and grinning from ear to ear, as they officially became husband and wife.

Our coverage of their day started out at The Cutting Edge Salon in Breese, Illinois, which, along with Perfectly Polished did a great job with the girls’ hair and makeup. Alek got ready for the day in Trenton, Illinois. Their ceremony was held at St. Augustine’s Catholic Church in Breese, Illinois. Alek’s grandfather, Bob (Deacon), officiated their ceremony. Before heading to the Breese American Legion, we did some creatives and swung by 7-West for a few drinks.

Presented are simply a few of our favorite moments and portraits from their day… GO VIKINGS!!!
