Mara and Matt July 2 2011

The wedding of Mara Wiebel and Matt Fanello took place on a typically hot and humid 4th of July weekend in the Quad Cities.  Mara and Matt are two of the nicest people I have worked with this year and it was a pleasure to help them celebrate their once-in-a-lifetime event.

Mara and Matt’s guests were young, full of energy and danced the night away at the i-wireless center banquet room.  Their wedding cake (below- from Heller Cakes) was delightful and delicious!

Mara and Matt danced their first dance to Etta James’ “Unforgettable”

The last song of the night was the ever popular “Free Bird”.

Note the great “Candy Bar” below. This is becoming a popular feature at weddings lately.  It’s a feature I’m all in favor of!
