Jewellie + John | Wesley United Methodist + Memorial Stadium wedding

Jewellie + John were married at the Wesley United Methodist Church on campus on June 4. It was a super hot, super humid day, so we didn't do many outdoor photos before hand, but Jewellie let us go crazy with photos at Memorial Stadium! After Jewellie + John's First Look, they exchanged gifts and cards with each other. Here Jewellie is showing John where her writing started. Apparently she covered a large portion of the card, and John didn't know where to look first! New favorite shoe shot ever? Maybe!! John wasn't in the room for this one, but we told Jewellie to pretend that she was looking at him instead of what she was really looking at--one of her bridesmaids! Beautiful bride! John awaiting his bride at the front of the aisle Having some fun on the field. I got to put my football photography skills to good use here: Sassy wedding party shot :) So the University had just finished installing the new Big Ten logo on the sideline, and Jewellie + John got to be the first to take their photo with it. Pretty neat! I always forget to go up to the columns when I am photographing a wedding at the Stadium. The last time I saw wedding coordinator Bobbi, I told her to make sure I don't forget to go up there next time! So glad we did... these are some of my favorite shots of them from the day, and I can definitely see one of these hanging as a huge canvas in their living room. :) The groom + groomsmen all wore stripey Illinois socks. Then they rolled up their pant legs for the wedding party intros. I told them they looked like Oompa Loompas! Groom's cake: I love this idea. Jewellie wanted to incorporate her Mom's wedding dress into the day, so she used a piece of the lace and wrapped it around her bouquet. How sweet! I call this one "oops!" :) If Julie and John can get 50 comments on this post (either via the Facebook comments below or regular blog comments, they'll receive a free 16x20" mounted print of their choice!
