Lisa and Bruce are an incredibly giving and loving couple. The couple had three wedding ceremonies before approaching me to help them plan & execute their fourth. Hailing from China; naturally their grandest ceremony was held there for all the family and friends that wouldn't be able to make it to the States to celebrate with them here. They also had a private ceremony in Hawaii while on their Honeymoon in Hawaii. But before all that, while Bruce accepted a new position in Naperville, they had a small private ceremony at the courthouse in Naperville. To mark their fourth wedding ceremony, and for all their friends here in the States, that literally came from all over the Country to join them - they wanted to really showcase their personalities, Lisa's love for all things that sparkle and also introduce all their American family and friends to a bit of Chinese culture. Springfield's own Washington Park and our Illinois State Capitol served as backdrops for this amazing wedding that took place rain or shine in mid April.
