What an adventure it has been for this couple! Dionna and Frank were my last couple from 2020 to finally have their wedding celebration with their family and friends. As we all know, the Pandemic hit us in waves and that left Dionna and Frank having to reschedule their spring wedding a few times. In those reschedules though, they didn’t let that stop them from having their own intimate ceremony and having a baby along the way! As a wedding vendor, it was devastating to see some couples having to put their dreams of starting a family on hold until they were able to hold a wedding ceremony. I am so glad Dionna and Frank were able to continue their dreams and have their little babes a part of their wedding day!
The Grand Ballroom in Joliet couldn’t have been a more perfect venue to host their family and friends for their wedding celebration. Everything happens for a reason and with their reschedule into ’22 they had a venue change. I am so thankful their ceremony and reception took place in The Grand Ballroom as it was the perfect spot for indoor portraits. It rained for the majority of the morning and afternoon leaving us to capture portraits inside, which turned out beautifully!
Dionna and Frank were so deserving of this special day. To say they booked me back in 2019 and I could be there for them through the waves of reschedules, I am so grateful they had the wedding day of their dreams!
