Doug + Alexis | A Romantic Wedding at Venue Chisca in Peoria, IL

November 25, 2021

Alexis and Doug’s wedding day was so full of laughter, tears, joy, and love. It’s hard to pick just one favorite moment from their day… Alexis shared the most adorable first looks with her dad, bridesmaids, and her hubby. Each reaction was just as beautiful as the last. And then a dancing dinosaur made his debut during the reception. (Keep scrolling to check it out!) And not to mention, Doug was so overcome with emotion as his beautiful bride walked down the aisle… the reaction every girl dreams of receiving from her hubby to be! These two have stolen our hearts.

But probably one of our all time favorite moments was watching Alexis and her family remember their grandmother who passed away before the wedding. Alexis made sure to remember her grandma and tie her in through every moment of the day. They even saved her a front row seat. It was so beautiful and heart touching because we know how hard it is to move forward with these big moments without someone who meant so much being there to witness and take part in the memories. But we know without a doubt, her grandma was beaming down on this day, full of so much joy watching the beginning of their beautiful journey unravel. What a special guardian angel Alexis and Doug have to watch over them and guide them through this life.

We love you, Alexis and Doug! We are so beyond grateful that you entrusted us with such a special season in your lives. We hope you can relive this perfect day over and over again through your photos. ❤️
