Edgar + Areli
September 22 was an amazing day, not only because I had the honor of photographing a STUNNING wedding, but mainly because of WHO was getting married. Edgar + Areli are two of the sweetest people I know. From the beginning, I could tell that Edgar loved Areli more than words. When they got engaged, Areli told me the story of how Edgar proposed. This man made an entire day out of his proposal to her! They went for ice cream, mini-golfing, and finally to Rock Cut State Park where he proposed to her. Major hubby points there, Edgar! So for their engagement session, we re-created their actual engagement! It was only fitting for their love story!
Prairie Street Brewhouse was the perfect backdrop for their wedding… the weather was incredible and Areli’s dark purple + gold decor was perfect for the venue. Oh, and her florals… INCREDIBLE. Her bouquet STILL has me on cloud 9. The moment I received her gorgeous invitation in the mail I was dying to see everything in it’s entirety and let me tell you, everything was breathtaking. From her custom made dress to their “I Do’s” with the Rock River as their backdrop, this wedding definitely made my top 10 list.
Edgar + Areli, congratulations again on your exquisite 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!
