Instead of a limo, we took a longer time for pictures at the church (and in the courtyard of the church) and did a boat ride on the rock river on board the forest city queen. This worked out great for us since our reception was at Rockford Country Club, and they have a dock where we were dropped off directly to the reception site, which was really cool! The boat ride itself was great...there is seating for around 30 people, and they will order champagne, beer, soda for you to enjoy with your wedding party or whoever you want on the boat. We had perfect weather and the boat ride was a really cool idea and way to do the 'limo' portion of the day. The only downside is we only had the boat for an hour and we had a big gap in between our ceremony and reception, so we had to wait a little bit. The park district will generally only allow for you to reserve the boat for one hour on a saturday afternoon, as this is when they do public rides. It was very reasonable compared to a limo though...$180 for one hour, and a little more for drinks - we had a few bottles of champagne, a case of beer, and bottled water. All in all it was a really neat experience.
