After over a decade of being together, katie and rob had an awesome rock island lake club summer wedding.  they met way back in their high school years when she was his waitress at friendly’s. we had some fantastic weather for their august wedding which was a fun contrast to the chilly winter day we had during their engagement session in my ‘hood. guests got to enjoy a beautiful outdoor ceremony, a cocktail hour by the lake and smores later that evening. rock island lake club wedding portraits rock island lake club bridal suite
