Heather contacted me a few months before I moved to Texas. She loved my work, and although I was moving, I decided to shoot her wedding — boy am I glad I did! Heather and Brandon’s love is palpable — you can feel it when they look into each others’ eyes.
Pulling into Lena, IL, I knew Heather and Brandon had been blessed with an extraordinary wedding day. The fall colors and mild temperatures made for beautiful pictures to last a lifetime. Lake Le-Aqua-Na provided a picturesque backdrop for this green and purple themed bridal party!
One of my favorite photos was when the groomsmen shrugged off their jackets and handed them over to the bridesmaids. The role reversal was hilarious — and cute! The live cover band at the reception was another treat. Everyone got into the music, rocked out, and danced the night away.
Heather made sure I knew her son, Hunter, was a huge part of their special day. Let me just say, what a ham! Hunter was a dancing machine, and mature beyond his years. Brandon loves Heather and Hunter unconditionally, and it was wonderful to see such a great couple start their happily ever after.
Congrats Heather and Brandon!
