Tricia + Wes blended their families together last Saturday with a beautiful and fun portrait session at Lake of the Woods, followed by their ceremony and lunch reception at Grace Church in Mahomet. Wes and his two daughters and Tricia and her two sons all prayed together both before the couple’s First Look, and again during the ceremony. The kids are all close in age (all between 2nd & 5th grades) and you can tell that they all get along pretty well and love each other so much already!
The group then traveled across Mahomet to Grace Church where the early afternoon ceremony took place. We then went straight into the reception in another wing of the church. Everything was delicious! And then the bride and groom played the shoe game, had their first dance as a couple, in which the bride’s father stepped in. And Wes’s girls also stepped in to dance with him to “I Loved Her First.” It was a sweet, intimate wedding, and I am so happy for Tricia, Wes, and their children!!
