I am honored to have been asked to photograph this gorgeous wedding for this sweet couple! It was such a beautiful day, and everything was absolutely beautiful even down to the tinest detail. I wish Mr. and Mrs. Campbell all the best as they begin this next chapter as husband and wife. Here are some highlights from their big day! :)
WEDDING & RECEPTION VENUE: St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Piopolis, IL
HAIR & MAKEUP: Stacy Webb
CAKE: Sandy Reyling
DJ: Tim Davis
My second shooter, Kris, and I arrived at the wedding venue at 1:30. Everyone was getting ready at the Catholic school located right next to the church. The girls were in one classroom, and the boys in another. Everyone was so sweet and laid back. We while the girls were doing make up touch ups and hanging out, Kris and I took the detail shots. Everything was soooo pretty! :)
Eeek that dress!! I loved the lace and all the detailings! It was so elegant!
Olivia looked absolutely beautiful! Her hair and makeup were flawless! :)
We took some pictures of Olivia and her bridesmaids followed by some family pictures before the ceremony.
After pictures, Olivia and the girls went back to the school to hang out until the ceremony began. I got Matthias, his groomsmen and his family together and got a few pictures of them.
The ceremony began at four. Everything went just perfect!
Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Matthias Campbell... :)
After the ceremony we took some family pictures and pictures of the wedding party all together.
This was followed by pictures of the bride and groom.
The reception started at 6. It was located in the catholic school basement. Everything here was equally as gorgeous as the rest! Kris and I kept talking about the decorations! So many great ideas!!
Next came the toasts from bridesmaid Alyssa and best man Zack.
First dance as a married couple followed by father/daughter and mother/son dances.
Next came the bouquet and garter tosses. Clara was so excited lol! So was the little guy that caught the garter (but I don't know his name).
This was my far my favorite cake cutting I have taken so far! They were so funny! :)
Congratulations Matthias & Olivia! Thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your day! I am so excited for you guys and wish you both a lifetime of happiness! :)
