Jon + Kari | Downs Methodist Church | Double Tree Hotel | Bloomington, IL

There was nothing but sunshine last Saturday when Jon and Kari got married at Downs Methodist Church in Downs.  After bridal party pics, everyone enjoyed the reception at Double Tree Hotel in Bloomington.  There were plenty of personal touches throughout the day from gifts shared before the ceremony, candles lit in memory of Kari's brother and Jon's father, photos at the fire station and EMS truck which is fitting since that is where Jon is employed.  The chief EMS helmet you see Jon holding was his father's who passed away recently.  There were very few dry eyes when he and his mom danced and smiled to You Should Be Here by Cole Swindell.  At the end you'll even see a photo of his co-workers arriving to the reception on the firetruck.  Lots of fun, lots of laughs and happy we were able to capture lots of memories for them on their wedding day. XOXOXO,

Heather & Kristin
