Salvation Army Community Relations Linda West watches as Salvation Army Commanding Officer Captain Carol Lewis packs up toys collected at the wedding ceremony of Mark Katz and Dana Guardyak held at Park Place Banquets in Crystal Lake on Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014. Guardyak has been planning her wedding for years and in the process decided, instead of wedding gifts, she wanted her guests to donate toys to the Salvation Army. Being a Christmas-themed wedding, she said it would be a great opportunity to make kids happy, who would not otherwise receive gifts for this Christmas.
