Megan + Justin {by liz}

Seriously…once again, so tough to narrow down this blog to a reasonable number of images! So much classic fabulousness here. Yes, I know…that is most likely not a word. There was some craziness and quite a bit of work leading up to this wedding. But totally worth it to make it so personal and unique. The party took place on the grounds of Justin’s mom’s historic home in Belleville, IL. And to prepare the grounds into a perfectly manicured canvas for Megan and Justin’s wedding was no simple task! But well worth every minute. And Lisa Zweifel of Eventz Planning did an amazing job not only coordinating but also making sure the tent and everything around it stayed in order (and as dry as possible!) even though a storm blew threw just a day before the big event.

Megan was the perfect bride to work with. So easy going, not worried about the details, along for the ride of this fun, happy day. Justin is a reserved guy, but you can see him kind of light up (I know – sounds cheesy but true) when he looks at Megan. His demeanor actually changes a little when she is around…and in a good way! Their naturalness with each other made them easy photo subjects in their beautiful surroundings. Enjoy the photos!

So shiny. And Tiffany. Does it get any better really?!

Tiny flower girl dress. Things are just cuter when they're smaller.

Never underestimate the value of branding. Or Tiffany Blue. I have a soft spot in my heart for that color.

More shiny! And one of my favorite earring shots of all time.

Gotta love a man in uniform.

Megan has this natural beauty about her. She has one of the friendliest, inviting smiles I've ever seen.

Proof that you don't have to hit a million locations to take some fab photos. All of these are just on the church grounds!

Ok, I don't normally post these kinds of photos, but I just couldn't resist this time. Just a great group of guys. No, I did not ask them to do this.

Sweet late afternoon light.

The reception took place at Justin's mom's historic estate home in downtown Belleville, IL. This tent is set up in the backyard. The ceremony was in the church just across the alley from their home. It was perfect!

I had to include a photo of the grounds. So beautiful.

Seriously, there was shiny stuff everywhere. At least 3 if not four crystal chandeliers hanging throughout the manicured garden.

Ok, I almost NEVER post dancing shots, but it isn't every day you get a bunch of girls reliving their high school pom pom years to My Shirona!

Nor is it every day you actually get the whole dance floor in synch thanks to Shout!

Thanks to all of the vendors that made this event spectacular!
