Peoria Illinois Wedding Photography - Monica and Eric at Blessed Sacrament and Pere Marquette

Pere Marquette Wedding, Chris McGuire Photography

Monica and Eric were so much fun to work with! These high school sweethearts have been together for over 9 years and celebrated that with a beautiful wedding ceremony at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Morton, Illinois. Following that, we went to Forest Park Nature Center for a few portraits and then to an amazing property on Grandview Drive overlooking the Illinois River. There, I learned a new word--sabrage! I've photographed over 250 weddings and this was my first time seeing a saber used to open a bottle of champagne--very cool (see the action pictures below)! Finally, we headed to the Peoria Marriott Pere Marquette ballroom for a lively reception featuring the Mike Dangeroux Band out of Chicago. Congratulations to Monica and Eric!
