Jeff and Laura are married! | Sycamore, IL wedding photography

It was a beautiful September day for Jeff and Laura's wedding. It's always nice to take a trip down memory lane, and I had quite a bit of nostalgia during their gorgeous wedding! They were married at Sycamore's Federated Church. A place I used to be a roving Madrigal musician around the holidays. The bride was in my graduating high school class, and I ran into several school mates I hadn't seen in ages. And their reception was at St. Mary's Church, where I had my ceremony 9 years ago! So lots of stars were in alignment for me to capture this wedding, but the brightest stars shone in Jeff and Laura's eyes when they gazed at one another! Congrats, and thank you for having me capture your beautiful day!

Laura wore a stunning dress, purchased from Crystal Bride in Geneva, IL.

First post-ceremony stop was to the Elwood House in DeKalb, IL.

Second stop was to Blumen Gardens in Sycamore, IL. I LOVE this location. Still thinking about having a 10-year anniversary party there next October.

And on to St. Mary's of Sycamore for a fun-filled reception!

Congrats, Laura and Jeff! Wishing you all the best!

Images to Adore FTW!

I'm sorry, I know I am mega-behind in new posts. I've been shooting people pretty nonstop since fall began, and now I am up to my ears in editing, but my new website and blog will be up very soon!

I am posting for an entirely selfish reason right now. I want to win. I want to win REAAAAAL bad! See there's this awesome lady, Laura Winslow. And she's giving away $10,000 worth of photography props, templates and other goodies that make me drool all over my keyboard! That makes her my favorite person in the world right about now. Here is the link to her fabulous giveaway. You don't have to do anything to help me win, I'm just posting about HOW MUCH I really want to win. I really do. Especially for the M4H actions and Oh Snap Boutique templates. There I go again...I'm drooling.
