Mike + Carla | The Forest, Byron, IL

Mike and Carla messaged me a month ago in a panic when their wedding day got flipped upside down due to COVID-19. Their original plans were no longer intact and everything was in the air. Rather than cancelling or postponing they changed venues, and a few new vendors later their day was back on track. Then the week of their big day and we had nothing but awful weather in the forecast so one final last minute change and we moved the date up a day and they said, " I do," in the sun light with their five kids by their side. When we met to do a walk through of The Forest and where we would set up a ceremony site Carla still didn't have a dress because all stores were closed but she stepped out of her car like a queen and looked stunning in her dress! Mike's ring was locked in the mall but with a bit of creativity they made his ring out of a $20 bill. Their ceremony was the perfect amount of them and a whole lot of love. They survived this wild wedding pandemic planning and through all of these obstacles they had each other. Congratulations, Mike & Carla! I wish you both many years of love and happiness and pandemic free event planning!
