Cathedral veils, a win every time.

The ceremony site at Aurora Cellars is simple and beautiful. This huge gorgeous Willow tree is the perfect backdrop.

Before the ceremony started, both families had a family blessing together. Seriously the sweetest thing!

After Chris and Monica walked down the aisle, their parents linked arms and everyone in the audience cheered for them. It was such a special moment.

Their sweet pup, Mack, was a part of the wedding celebrations (and I think he enjoyed all the attention…).

What a gorgeous bridal party.

Don’t you just love Mack? He was at their Chicago engagement session too!

Chris & Monica’s reception was under the tent with yard games and endless fun. They had the most perfect weather for a June wedding.

After dinner, before the sun goes down, I always sneak out with the bride and groom for a last set of photos. These are always my favorites. The stress of the day is gone and they can just be in love, as husband and wife.

Chris & Monica – thank you SO much for trusting me with your wedding images. I had such a wonderful day with you and your beautiful families. I hope you treasure these images more and more as each day passes!
