This “fall flashback” is one of my favorites mostly because I adore the bride and groom. It doesn’t hurt that they had a super cute wedding full of fun people…but Amanda and Chris are good people. They are the kind of people you hope are in the seats next to you on the airplane — and for those of you who know me, that’s saying a lot!! They had their rehearsal dinner at a tiny old schoolhouse in Columbia IL…. the outhouses had to be photographed….my question: who is the star and who is the moon?!?
…and the next day, we resumed at the Four Seasons Hotel for getting ready photos!
special thanks to my trusty sidekick for the day, Von, for these fun photos of Chris and the boys!
do you think there might be some country boys in the wedding party?
LOVE this little touch… denim from Grandpa’s dungarees sewn into the bride’s dress as both a remembrance AND something borrowed and blue!
oh those eyes!
first look! That groom looks pretty happy.
and where are the rest of the groomsmen? where else?!

Mr & Mrs!!
good thing Amanda brought flip flops because we walked all over this park!!
and then there was a party!
with a surprise groom’s cake for Chris, the worlds biggest Green Bay Packers fan
I think he likes it.
lots of laughs during the same day edit by Gebbs Wedding Films… always a pleasure to work with them and see their talent on these same day edits.
HA! a funny garter prank that i am not sure was pre-approved!
but it did make the guys really go for that garter!
Thank you Amanda and Chris, and your families, for welcoming Von and I for the day… we had a blast. Stay tuned for the “day after” session at the family farm coming up next!!
