10.10.2020


Tommy and Katy Rivera tied the knot on the most popular day of the year. The easiest 2020 date to remember for an anniversary. That's right, October 10, 2020.


Starting out at Springfield High School in Springfield, IL, two friends decided to set Katy and Tommy up. They decided to go homecoming together and danced the night away. Tommy got the boom box and wrote a rap song to ask Katy out and the rest is history. A few years later, they both joined the United States Air Force together.

They had a very intimate, cozy, BEAUTIFUL outdoor fall wedding. The gorgeous golden sunset at the ceremony to the starry night over the fire was such a joy to capture. Fall leaves were literally falling during the entire day, making it even more perfect.


The ceremony was held at the Gazebo at Washington Park in Springfield, IL. It was the perfect spot to hold a small outdoor wedding. This park also had so many places to take beautiful fall wedding photos! I mean, I think the pictures speak for themselves!

The reception was in the groom's parent's backyard. I mean, come on. It doesn't even look like a backyard wedding. Absolutely gorgeous. Tommy and Katy did a great job at keeping their guests entertained with great music, drinks, snacks, dinner from Papa Frank's, smores over the fire, and dancing.
