Take two inside out gorgeous people, add on a beautiful (but warm!) sunny day in June, and then place them on the grounds of a lovely southern Illinois country club and it’s a sure recipe for amazing photos! Some of us (um, ME!) could never be this comfortable in front of the camera, so I’m a little bit jealous, but mostly thrilled to have had the opportunity to be a part of this day. Enjoy!
Love all of these natural smiles. Of course there is nothing natural about sitting on a ballroom floor with your ladies while wearing robes, but it looks natural and that’s what counts right?!
Kristen’s simple and elegant Carolina Herrera gown was perfect on her silhouette. LOVE the deep V.
Favorite mother daughter moments.
I mean that light…you’re glowing Kristen!
Blake and the guys tying ties.
Anyone else also jealous of Blake’s hair? No seriously I would maybe give my pinky finger for this much hair.
Love that smirk!
Portraits part 1! We did in pieces so that no one had to hang out in the heat for too long at one time.
After a little break we grabbed some golf carts and this handsome wedding party and headed back out.
I don’t know how no one looks like they are sweating! I swear I didn’t photoshop off any sweat beads. I was DRENCHED.
And we headed back to the club house to prepare for the ceremony!
So many little cuties in this wedding.
Congrats! Let’s party!
And as the sun set in the distance, we took full advantage of this historical bridge at St. Clair Country Club.
Quiet moment over! Back to the festivities!
Thrilled to have been a part of your perfect wedding day! Congrats and many happy years to you both! With love, Liz + Mer
