After rescheduling their engagement session several times due to weather, we assured Megan & Jake that their wedding day would be perfect weather to make up for Mother’s Nature’s inconvenience. What we SHOULD have assured them is that their wedding day would be perfect rain or shine. Because this day was certainly perfect, however it certainly didn’t have perfect weather. It was chilly, windy, and cloudy – all of which Megan and Jake hadn’t hoped for, but the setting at Erin’s Pavilion in Springfield IL was gorgeous, and the day was filled with love, laughter, and happiness which is more than some people are lucky enough to enjoy in their entire lifetime. This couple is absolutely as sweet as they are good looking. Gracious, kind, and completely endearing. We loved getting to know them at their engagement session, and felt as though we’d known them forever. Upon seeing their family, friends, and wedding party – we quickly realized we aren’t the only people who felt that way. These two are so sweetly in love, always kind to one another, always finding solace in the other’s arms. We love their love, and absolutely loved their day that began their happily ever after. Enjoy Megan & Jake’s wedding day!
Megan chose the most gorgeous blush wedding dress that was perfectly her. Couldn’t get enough!
Megan is such a girl next store beauty. She was absolutely perfectly stunning!!
And Jake is just as charming as they come and is incredibly handsome!
So this is where we might go a bit overboard. Megan and Jake have a beautiful daughter Olivia, and she is CERTAINLY the offspring of these two because she is not only adorable, she is perfectly sweet. “You look beautiful mommy!”, “I love you daddy!” was just typical phrases that could be heard from Olivia, and she won our hearts instantly. If Megan and Jake aren’t perfect enough, this little gal makes the package complete.
ABSOLUTELY LOVE this shoe shot!! Matching Toms for mommy and Olivia, and fun socks for daddy. Perfection!
This one is so cute, she might make us want to photograph children again. (But she’s sets the bar awfully high!!)
I mean seriously… I can’t get over this.
I don’t think this blog has ever held this many photos of a child, but can you blame us?
Now we’ll have to admit – the adults were pretty darn cute as well!
After some fun photos at the old State Capitol, we took some even more fun photos in a random alley (we always find a way to end up in a random alley it seems) where the bridesmaids channeled the movie The Bridesmaids for some photos! They rocked it!
Are they not the hottest couple ever?
Megan and Jake – we. adore. you. We say all the time how fortunate we are to have a occupation that brings us people we fall in love with and are honored enough to keep as friends. You two certainly are one of those couples! Thank you for choosing us for your day, thank you for being so laid back and flexible and trusting our vision, and thank you for treating us like one of your friends. We will treasure your day, the memories created, and the love between the two of you as well as your daughter forever!!
