Katie & Michael | Romantic Farm Wedding | Sneak Peek!

Katie & Michael have been patiently awaiting their wedding photos, and they are almost here!  For now, with the upcoming holiday and my anniversary (it was yesterday) to celebrate, I may not have time until next week to get everything posted!  So I am giving you a sneak peek, my dears.  I am so happy to have met K&M - they are creative, friendly, sweet, kind, fun and downright awesome.  They are both architects, and fate brought them together through their work.  Their love of design and details made for one gorgeous unique wedding, on Katie's Grandfather's farm in Princeton, Illinois. Missy and Brad and I had so much fun shooting this wedding.  I grabbed a quick few faves in my editing adventures, see below!  More, much much more, to come soon! xo - C.

Isn't she the most beautiful bride?!?!

Michael was none too shabby either! Quite dapper, I must say :)

K&M opted for a first look - an awesome idea especially if you are planning your wedding all in one place.

It gets the photos & nerves out the way and makes room to simply sit back and enjoy every moment of getting married and partying down!

OK, so it rained. So what? It was not the whole time! The day was amazing and the rain just added a million blessings on their marriage.

While it rained, we waited it out in the antique farm museum on the property - um, yes. It was radical. And the perfect backdrop for photos!

I think Michael was reacting to me making him stand in the mud :) Super cute though!

That's better! (above shot by Missy)

Biggest bridal party ever? Maybe.  One of the most awesome bridal parties ever? Definitely.

The rain held off for the ceremony, which was gorgeous under the tall trees among the flowers. (above shot by Missy)

Last, but not least (and definitely not it on the images!), a quick shot of the first dance, under the tent, to start

the night off and to celebrate their happily ever after. <3
