Matthew + Grace | An Intimate Chapel Wedding at Sommer Park in Peoria, IL

September 26, 2023

Grace used to watch Matthew drive by her house on his motorcycle with his long hair flowing in the wind. We can only imagine what sort of cool stud Matthew had to be (and still is 😎) to have swept gorgeous Grace off her feet. And now, with a few inches chopped off Matthew’s hair and what could have only been a couple hundred motorcycle rides later… here they stood… at the altar in a beautiful, intimate chapel/school house at Sommer Park. Ready to promise their lives to each other.

And we are the lucky photographers who got to capture it all! Their day was absolutely perfect! Too many beautiful moments to list… from the absolute heart tugging moments of Grace with her dad to partying it up on the dance floor!

We couldn’t be more happy for you, Matthew and Grace! We love you both and wish you a lifetime of pure joy! Thanks for sharing your stunning day with us!
