Nick + Natalie | A Moody, Romantic Wedding at Venue Chisca in Peoria, Illinois

September 16, 2021

It was a beautiful day in July when Natalie and Nick promised their lives to one another. They were surrounded by so much love. It was absolutely felt from every direction.

Venue Chisca made the most beautiful back drop for their dream wedding. Natalie and Nick thought of every detail, and it all came together beautifully! We were especially a fan of the bridesmaids black dresses. It made their gorgeous floral bouquets from Heaven on Earth pop like you wouldn’t believe! Literally every detail was planned to a T! And came together in this stunning moody, dramatic, romantic way.

During their ceremony, Nick and Natalie did a unity box where they wrote letters to one another to open down the road. We absolutely love this idea!! Because the truth is that life can get hard and the wedding bliss won’t last forever. So this is a beautiful way to look back on the love shared from day one. To remember that their love will conquer any challenge ahead.

Nick and Natalie, we can’t thank you enough for allowing us to capture the beautiful moments of this perfect day. We love you both and we can’t wait to see what life has in store for you. We hope you love your wedding day preview!
