Matt + Catherine’s wedding at Jacob Henry Mansion in Joliet, IL was such a fun day! Though their fall wedding was a bit chilly, it kept us moving and having fun. Their Joliet, IL wedding wasn’t without a few personal moments that will stick with me for a long time.
Catherine surprised Matt and his mother with corsages that featured photos of Matt’s late father. Neither of them knew about the personal touch so when Matt’s mom pinned on his boutonniere, Matt teared up (and so did I).
One of the funnier instances of the Matt + Catherine’s fall wedding was when the Pastor dropped the rings! You don’t see clergy get flustered too often but this was a rare occurrence since the officiant was also Catherine’s godmother. Everyone had a good chuckle and the Pastor recovered nicely.
The fun continued well into the reception as I’ve never seen a dance floor continually packed like this! It was like being the middle of mosh pit and if I wouldn’t have had to capture the party, I would have joined right in.
