It was the perfect autumn day. There was a warm breeze blowing through the vivid leaves in shades of yellows, reds, and orange. The sunlight warmed the air, and in the midst of a quiet church you could hear the sounds of laughter coming from the bride’s room in the basement. It was the ultimate fall wedding day. This couple if any deserved the perfect day that had been bestowed upon them. They’ve made it through adversity of a long – long distance relationship, and have had their share of hardships. But as any couple who is meant to spend forever together, they got through all of it with conviction that one day it would all pay off with a beautiful start to a magnificent future. This was the day storybook beginning to a story book love. Enjoy Casey & Corey’s wedding day!!!Casey is a diligent worker and is painstakingly a perfectionist. Casey – you were perfection on your wedding day and it was so wonderful to see you relaxed and happy! Your love made you shine!!Meet Corey – pretty much the nicest person you’ll ever meet. And handsome to boot? Casey got herself quite a catch!! Conversely, so did he!!Photos were important to this couple, so they opted to do a first glance. If you’d like to see how this benefits your day, besides emotionally, a release from stress, and an easier timeframe – you should take a look at the amount of photos they have. All of which are STUNNING. Brides and grooms everywhere will back me up – a first look is the way to go!!
(And for those of you who feel that it takes away from the moment you walk down the aisle – Casey & Corey both still cried, and both took in that moment even more so BECAUSE of the first look, not despite it!)
IN LOVE with this image.Gotta love Alton IL. and their gorgeous churches!Say hello to the most cooperative wedding party ever!!
OK – there were many parts to this day that we loved, but this part… I died. Jilly’s cupcake bar just happens to be my definition of heaven on Earth, so the moment I saw that Reeses Chunckage sitting on the cupcake table I knew it was going to be a good night. If you’ve never had a cupcake from Jilly’s I feel sorry for you. Just look!!Another AWESOME moment? Oh, just a FLASH MOB at the reception!!! I wish I would have been included in this, because I would have been on cloud 9. But I will say – it was one of our favorite wedding day moments ever.
Casey & Corey – thank you for choosing us and for letting us capture your love. You two are incredible people and justifiably loved by everyone!!! Congrats to a lifetime of happiness!!!
