If you’re engaged (congrats!) and you are trying to think about where to get married, the options are nearly endless. And in this blog, I am going to share my love for one of the best Southern Illinois wedding venue- Celebrations Event Center in Marion, Illinois.

I want to share with you why that is. Not only the Celebrations Event Center is located in the city without a long distance of driving for you and your guests. The property is beautifully landscaped, and it provides classy and elegant look. So, if you are wanting a classy wedding day and you are wanting that outdoor vibe (yes, please, with indoor option), then make sure you take a close look at the Celebrations Event Center in Marion, Illinois.

I had a pleasure to work with Sam and John on their wedding day. They are both fun and laid back couple. They have 6 groom men and it is a Mr. and Mr, LGBQ wedding. They are so easy to work with and make my job easier! Their wedding party was super laid back too. They all had matching socks, which is so cute!

The weather was so hot and humid in August that everybody was dripping sweat in the matter of seconds, not even minutes. The challenge for this wedding was coaching their wedding party in a way where it wouldn’t look so hot. I promised them that we would go outside and get the photos done really quick then run back inside. With the cooperation of everyone – we nailed it! The couple said they wanted to have the ceremony outdoors. but it was too hot so they changed the ceremony back to indoors the last minutes. Celebrations Event Center offers outdoor and indoors option. I have to say the couple have amazing friends who helped them to decorate the venue. I can tell the support and love from their friends and family. The whole wedding is super laid back with fun and laughing. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for trusting me to document your wedding day, Sam and John. Congratulations!
