Good Morning World! Another gorgeous wedding in Peoria Illinois Wedding is in the books! Let me introduce you to Ryan and Rachel! I met Rachel through some mutual friends back in Bloomington, Illinois who attended Illinois Wesleyn University and Illinois State university. I met Ryan at the engagement session, but for Rachel to introduce Ryan to me probably meant he was something special!
Ryan and Rachel were married on probably one of the windiest days of the year! I mean it was so windy that I actually fell over at one point! Having that strong of wind in Central Illinois really is something I was prepared for! But let me tell you Ryan and Rachel are some serious troopers! Not only is the couple just gorgeous, but they are full of personality, stories, fun, and most important of all…love! At every wedding I go to I always cry and get emotional when couples actually love each other and the wedding day is not just some big expensive party for them to throw…but honestly I get to work with a lot of people that are in love!
I got to start my day off at an ah-mazing home in Dunlap, Ill. When you first walked in what you see below is the first thing that you see! Talk about an ah-mazing view!! What, what?!
I lately have been inspired by shapes, colors and textures. So why not throw some beautiful shoes into the mix!
So obviously if there are insanely large windows…the only logical conclusion is to have Rachel get partially dressed in front of the window with the help of her bridesmaids!
On the way to the reception at Mount Hawley Country Club, we had to make sure we found some magnolia trees because they seriously make the best backgrounds ever. Plus they literally just scream spring!
Thank you so much Ryan and Rachel for letting me capture your day!
