Courtney and Mike met at Winona State freshman year [brrrrr]. They became friends, but didn't start really dating until after college. At that point, Courtney and Mike's relationship took the test of distance from IL to AZ. Seven years later, that is all but a memory. After prep at the Hyatt in Deerfield, we traveled to St Simons Episcopal Church for the ceremony, where amazing stained glass and warm wooden beams create a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony. The church keeps the ceremony of weddings sacred and thus requests no photos during the ceremony. After a few family photos post-ceremony, the wedding party headed to downtown Long Grove for photos.
