Colin & Erin tied the knot on July 6, 2012 at Blessed Sacrament Church in Quincy, Illinois.  The whole day featured handcrafted touches from their wedding bands with fingerprints on the inside to a 1000 paper cranes that brought them good luck at their reception.  The attendants and bride wore red shoes as another sign of good luck in Chinese custom. All of the guys wore handmade dichroic glass tie clips to compliment the wedding colors. A patient of the bride's created a beautiful prayer shawl for her and she wore her mother's veil. While the day's temperature hovered around a hundred degrees, it didn't phase the activity one bit. As a back-up to extreme summer temperatures, we captured photographs in the beautiful interior of Villa Catherine overlooking the Mississippi River.

The festivities concluded at the Holiday Inn located in Quincy, Illinois. At the reception, the candles on the tables were created by the mother of the bride with "Wu" etched in the glass on the front.  The father of the bride created the picture in the background.  The mother of the groom carried the Chinese cake topper back with her from Hong Kong. All the cranes were folded by the bride for good luck according to ancient Japanese legend.  All 1000 were then given as favors to guests. Thank you for allowing me to be part of the day when Dr. Wu & Dr. O'Neal became Mr. & Mrs. Wu, may your wish be granted along with a lifetime of memories together.
