Happy New Year with Gina and Joe

Happy New Year!! This week I am posting about my last wedding of 2008 instead of my usual impact tip. This is an extra special post because it was my last wedding of 2008 and my first post of 2009. I won't have another wedding for awhile so I am posting some extra pictures :)

I rang in 2009 with a very special couple. American Idol finalist, Gina Glockson and Joe Ruzicka were married yesterday at the Naper Settlement and their reception was at the Bolingbrook Golf Club.

They had a very special start to their engagement. When Gina was on tour with the idols, Joe surprised her on stage with a proposal! I love this shot of the dress in the reflection of this photo that captures that special moment.
Gina had these Converse shoes made for her special day. Gina with her other American Idol bridesmaid's, Jordin Sparks and Haley Scarnato Jordin Sparks, a bridesmaid, gave a live performance and sang their first dance song Joe's band, Then Again, performed throughout the night. This song he dedicated to his new bride.

Oh Kristina! I've been stalking the blog more than usual waiting for these! STUNNING!!! You rock! Gina is going to freak out when she sees the rest. The one of her entering with her parents is my fave so far. Can't wait to see the rest!
