Like Superman and Lois Lane

Beautiful Strauss Island in the Elk Grove Park Pavilion is the perfect venue for an intimate ceremony. The site is surrounded by a water-feature with swans, a fountain, and flanked by a long bridge. At the end of the bridge is a white gazebo that offers shade under a canopy of willow trees making for a grand entrance.

The details of the wedding reflected the couple’s love of comics. Their invitations and RSVPs were adorable as mocked up issues of The Daily Planet. Tawnya’s beaded dress and gold eyelet pumps had a retro glam feel that would make even Lois Lane envious.
