Lea & Dan's Wedding at State Road Gardens Farm | Genoa, IL | Dekalb County

Lea and Dan definitely know how to party! I can say this was the first request I've had by a couple to have photos taken at their local watering hole, Hill's Tap, in downtown Genoa, prior to the ceremony. The bride initially asked for photos of her and her bridesmaids doing 'one last shot before she ties the knot.' Well, the guys took full advantage of that idea and it made for an amazing photo of him with his groomsmen.

There was never a dull moment with this group, be it from the bride having her maid of honor help get her heels on (the MOH hates feet and might have gagged a bit), to the guys all doing shots at the local bar and living it up taking shots on the pool table.

As we all know, I'm a sucker for daddy/daughter dances, and this one didn't disappoint. In fact, Leslie (my mini-me) joined to help out on the shoot and found herself tearing up at the dance with Lea and her father. Once the sun went down, we found all their closest friends and family hitting the dancefloor and showing off their best moves, and trust me, the groomsmen had a blast with that from shotgunning a beer to lap-dancing for the bride!

Food and staffing were catered by Your Day Your Way Events and Catering, and DJ, Josh, kept the party going well into the night.

Congratulations to the couple that has already been living the married dream for many years, but finally made it official!
