About Us

Hello, I am DelmaRae Menke the owner of Nauvoo Wedding Services.  We chose to move to Nauvoo, Illinois in 2002 with the intent of developing a business and to enjoy the rich history found here. 
I have a great love of history, of the life styles of the couragous people who built this place then left it after such a short period of time.  I feel sometimes that I was born in the wrong period of time, but I like living in this time of modern conveniences.  I do not know if I could have met their challenges with such courage.  I love walking where they have walked and feeling their love for this beautiful bend on the river. 
Indeed I have been blessed with a spirit of sharing the many talents that the Lord has blessed me with.  As in the Lord's parable of the talents, I feel that as I share these talents they will indeed multiply.  I do not want to be considered a unwise steward of the blessings I have received.
I started helping with church, scouting and community fund raising functions when I was just a child and have parents, friends and family that have shared their talents with me.
My grandmother started me on cake decorating when I was 12 and my mother on cooking and sewing when I was just 5.
I try to observe, listen and learn from all sources.
I have had several different kinds of businesses using these talents since I was 19 years old.
I know how hard and stressful it can be to plan those special events, but I feel that I can help ease this for all involved with what I have to offer.  I know how important it is to enjoy the event and not look back at the regrets of the stress that could be felt.  I want to share my "magic" with you.  Let me help you put the "magic" into your special event.
