Josh and Lindsey’s wedding at the Contemporary Arts Center in Peoria, Illinois was wonderful! Their April wedding has many beautiful details which you’re sure to enjoy. Their photographer Rachael from Rachael Schirano Photography has some intimate details about their wedding day for you after the jump…
Contemporary Arts Center Wedding
Rachael tells us, “There were so many special details…bits of their personalities tucked into every detail. Like the lace wrapped around her flowers which was from her mother’s wedding dress, the way the groom hand drew the border on the invitations, seating chart and programs, the fact that she had a close friend of hers put together the floral arrangements (and he is not even a florist!) and how she (along with help from her family and friends) decorated the venue themselves with the twinkle lights and paper lanterns.”
“The venue was The Contemporary Arts Center in Peoria, IL and they have a huge record collection and requested we stop at their favorite record store, Ribbon Records for some bride+groom photographs.”

lindsey…i was honored to be there to photograph your day. it was incredible! xo
This was the best day of my life :) I’m so honored that Rachael submitted us!
We tried really hard to plan our wedding so that our personalities came through. We also wanted to do a lot of things ourselves, not only to save money but also to put personal touches on everything. Josh designed and drew the invitations. My grandmother hand made “creams,” as favors which are candies from a cherished family recipe. We also created crossword puzzles on the programs to help keep people entertained. I borrowed glass apothecary jars from a friend who had used them at her wedding. My mother made my veil that morning. Josh and I loaded our ipod with our favorite tunes rather than hire a DJ. The only complaint we got about music was that there weren’t enough slow songs for people to catch their breath! To top it all off, we did it all in just three short months. Call me crazy!
It was the most perfect day :) And now we have Rachael’s amazing photographs to cherish and adore as we look back on our wedding day.
