Justin & Kara
The day begins with this gorgeous couple in Toluca, Illinois.
I have known Kara for a good while so it was so easy to pass the drive with excited ideas about what the day would hold.
We knew we had a beautiful bride and a handsome groom to set the tone for a wonderful day.
We knew they are as kind as they are beautiful.
We knew that what had promised to be a dark and stormy day was looking blue skies lovely.
We thanked God and asked His blessing over the day, their marriage
and our creative eye plus our equipment (always that) & set out on our way.
And then we met them, the Shidesmaids.
The best group of lovelies a girl could surround herself with on such an extraordinary day.
Meet the Shumsmen.
Clever with the name as are the gentlemen who fall under it's title.
The True Gift.
Your bus, my dear . . .
(who needs a chariot)
Willy, be sill my heart.
Peace, love and obviously, joy.
May the LORD bless you and keep you.
May the LORD make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you.
May the LORD lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.
