Sharon and Harvey have been together for many years, and their love for each other shines through when you're with them! Their day was relaxed and joyful, likely because they themselves are both laid back!
All the day's events took place at the I Hotel in Champaign (which is a fantastic wedding venue, by the way!). The two of them started off the day with a quick wedding rehearsal with their wedding party. After the rehearsal, they departed into separate locations to get ready, and before we all knew it, it was time for the ceremony to begin! During the ceremony, they participated in a sand ceremony with their beautiful daughter, all three of them pouring sand into a shadowbox. Their daughter also read a note she had written about the big day, which included thanking everyone for coming.
After the ceremony we were able to go outside the hotel to enjoy the beautiful day and get family and wedding party photos. Except for one little boy who didn't want to get his photo taken (:)), we enjoyed the sunshine, and before long it was time to boogy on the dance floor.
After toasts, dinner, and cutting the cake, Sharon and Harvey's friends and family danced the night away. Harvey also bought cigars for the special occasion, which he and his guy pals shared outside--it was truly a special moment!
Congrats, Sharon and Harvey! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness.
