Jennifer and Mike – June 30 2012

Jennifer Blaser and Mike Svendsen, along with 230 of their family and friends had an awesome party to celebrate their wedding day! The Radisson Quad City Plaza Ballroom was the perfect setting for an event that combined elegance and good times that lasted well into the evening.

Jennifer and Mike are an amazing couple, very fun loving and they have a great family and group of friends!

Jennifer and Mike had their wedding ceremony at St. John Vianney Church at 2PM.  Guests were able to then enjoy a cocktail hour at 4PM in the Radisson’s tropical-like atrium.  After Melanie from Best Days Photography photographed the wedding party, Jennifer and Mike descended the grand staircase to join the party that was going on in the atrium.

The Radisson Ballroom’s elegance was revealed to the guests when the doors opened promptly at 5PM.  Guests’ eyes were treated to the beauty of floral arrangements by Clazzy Designs.   Below are some of the photos I took during the night:

Mike and Jennifer had such a large group left at the end of the night that there was barely enough space to fit them around the edge of the Radisson’s large dance floor!
