I’m not sure that there are enough words to describe just exactly how much I loved this day. We’ve been to many weddings, seen spectacular details, heartfelt love, days filled with sunshine and warmth, but this day had all of that and more. When Roger and I can both agree that this is one of our favorite weddings beyond our own wedding – you know it’s good. Why you ask? What makes it so special? Well to start, this wedding was on a Thursday. Out of the norm? Yes. Absolute perfection? 100%. This being held on a Thursday, in the morning, in her parents back yard, intimately surrounded with close family and friends, with a charming, relaxed vibe – made this day a day dreams are made of. Not only was this a dream set up for a photographer – it was a dream for a bride and groom. It was relaxed yet meaningful, and as endearing as it gets. It was the vibe that everyone dreams there wedding would have, and without all the stress of a typical wedding day all that was left to do was marvel at the love between Beth and Brady. I hope you enjoy this day as much as we did!!
Beth had a “First Look” with her bridesmaids – and I must say… she has the BEST friends a girl could ask for. Their reaction was incredible and completely heartfelt. The tears began here and lasted throughout the day!
This bouquet!!! Ohemmgee. Main Street Florist in Carlinville absolutely ROCKS!!!
This girl is the real deal. Beautiful inside and out.
There wasn’t a dry eye thanks to Brady’s reaction to watching Beth walk down the aisle.
The view from Beth’s parent’s house is simply magnificent!
The love for these two was palpable.
Another amazing moment to love – These paper cones were filled with heart punched out of a map and the thousands of them were each hand folded. Overachievers!! But the moment as they left the ceremony turned out perfectly!
Beth and Brady had a delightful lunch reception at a local Carlinville restaurant that closed down for the afternoon just for their event. A custom pizza buffet and appetizer bar… heaven.
Instead of a guest book, the two had bowls for guests to sign. I love the thought of Beth & Brady’s future children having ice cream out of a bowl with a message from someone that attended their wedding. Such a sweet keepsake.
Perfectly matching wall, check.
How cute are they?
Beth and Brady – from the moment you walked in the door to discuss your day we have adored you. Inside and out you two are beautiful, lovable, sweet people. We are so thankful that you chose us for your day and look forward to watching your happily ever after!!
