ALAN + AIMEE | Southern Illinois Wedding Photographer
You may recognize this gorgeous bride as she is the owner of Ruby Chandelier Boutique! https://www.facebook.com/rubychandelierboutique/ If you haven't already go check them out! Their wedding was planned down to every detail. The day ran extremely smooth and I am certain it had to be because they were so well prepared and laid back.
We have had the pleasure of shooting in this GORGEOUS church in Wendelin, IL once again. It is simply stunning. We have a couple more booked and can not wait to shoot there again! The guests have always been very sweet & very understanding of having unplugged weddings. As you can see the sign below we provide the sign and frame for our brides to use at their wedding if they so choose. This explains to the guests that they would prefer an unplugged ceremony and for the guests to be present with them and share the memories rather than leaning in the aisle with their cell phones. :) We of course don't mind photos being taken the rest of the day but we hate to see images ruined while the bride and groom want that special moment walking down the aisle.
Im still a sucker for the moment the couple has been announced & they leave the church. Bubbles, petals, rice, I don't care. I just love the pure JOY on their faces just after saying I DO.
Such beautiful details at the reception. I love how they incorporated the wood planks down the table. These were later used to build a headboard for the couples bed.
Aimee was part of a sorority & as I understood they do this at every wedding for the couple. It was very sweet & fun to watch!
Thank you so much for trusting us with your precious day. If you would like to see more from this wedding please view the entire gallery here: http://www.estherbloomphotography.com/volk
