Chad & Elizabeth | Chapel in the Pines, Sycamore, IL Wedding Photography

Things are winding down over here as I prepare for the birth of my third child, but I’m happy to be able to share this recent wedding with ya’ll!! It’s a little cliche to say how sweet and awesome your clients are, but seriously, Chad and Elizabeth are some of the best people out there!

Such sweet, nervous anticipation!chapel_in_the_pines_02 chapel_in_the_pines_03 chapel_in_the_pines_04 chapel_in_the_pines_05 The mosquitoes before the ceremony were INSANE. And thanks to Photoshop you’ll never see them or the red splotches they left all over C&E.  These two were incredible the whole time.chapel_in_the_pines_06 chapel_in_the_pines_07 I just can’t resist a beautiful field of summer wildflowers!chapel_in_the_pines_08 chapel_in_the_pines_09 chapel_in_the_pines_10 chapel_in_the_pines_11 The ceremony and reception were at Chapel in the Pines. Such a cute little place!chapel_in_the_pines_13 chapel_in_the_pines_14 chapel_in_the_pines_15 chapel_in_the_pines_16 chapel_in_the_pines_17 chapel_in_the_pines_18 chapel_in_the_pines_19 chapel_in_the_pines_20 chapel_in_the_pines_21 chapel_in_the_pines_22One of my favorite things to photograph at a wedding is the moment the bride and groom walk away from their guests after the recessional. The moment that they’re like, “What the WHAT?!?! We’re MARRIED!?!?” chapel_in_the_pines_23 chapel_in_the_pines_25

Thank you so much, Chad and Elizabeth, for being so wonderful during your day! It was hot and buggy, but you guys rocked EVERYTHING!!

Also, huge, HUGE thanks to the wonderful Gisselle for helping me out with this wedding!!
