Chris + Jacquelyn
You know when you meet someone and you just "click" right away with them? That's exactly how it was with Chris, Jacquelyn, and I when we met at Starbucks! I knew that these two were the most awesome, laidback couple... they were my kinda people!
Just to fill you in on how cool Chris + Jacquelyn are, you have to know that they met in Colorado... he proposed to her on the lake... and Chris absolutely adores Jacquelyn like she's his princess. Just wait until you see their first look! PRICELESS.
We started the day at Our Lady of Assumption Church in Beloit, WI where the ladies were getting ready (and the guys were partying on the bus!) ...this was the start of their perfect weather wedding day! If you remember, the engagement session was raining the entire time, so these two deserved a change in the forecast for their big day. After the girls were ready, I hung out with Chris and we walked to the first-look location. I thought Chris looked cool, calm, and collected... he was so excited to see Jacquelyn and shake some nerves away! Later in the day, Jacquelyn had mentioned that she could tell that Chris was nervous before the first-look which could have FOOLED ME! BUT that just goes to show you how well she knows her man!
After these two said their "I Do's" and excited the church with an awesome bubble exit, we headed to the reception at DC Estate Winery in South Beloit, IL. If you've never been to this venue, it's LITERALLY on the state line... as in, if you're at the venue you're in IL but if you're looking at the field across the street, you're looking at WI... it's definitely one of my favorite venues to photograph! You'll see why when you scroll!
SO MUCH LOVE AND SO MANY VINES!
From heartfelt moment with family and friends (you both genuinely have such sweet families and I can't thank you enough for your kindness AND trust!)... to meeting Jacquelyn's swimteam ladies (hey, hey girls!! So nice to meet you all!!)... to dancing the night away under the perfect sunset... this wedding was one for the books.
Chris + Jacquelyn, congratulations again on your incredible wedding... thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for allowing me to be a part of your most precious day. It means the world to me. I wish you both the most amazing of marriages + the happiest of ever afters.
A big thanks to all the vendors who helped make this wedding possible! Incredible job!
