Mary & Fred had a beautiful wedding in Nauvoo, Illinois with a reception taking place at Mary’s family farm in Hamilton, Illinois. From the moment I entered the house I was warmly welcomed by all of the wedding party and family members. Mary was absolutely stunning in her grandmother’s wedding dress. It was a very rainy day, but this beautiful bride was so excited to get married that there was never a mention of the weather. At the end of the night, the sun peeked out and I stole Mary & Fred away for a beautiful shoot in the evening light. I was absolutely head over heels for their nautical themed decorations-all lovingly made by hand.. I was truly honored to be a part of their day. Congratulations, Mary & Fred!
