Sara + Brian | Winter Wedding at Manteno Church of the Nazarene and Quality Inn Banquets | Kankakee Wedding Photographer

Oh my goodness, I truly cannot believe I’m writing Sara and Brian’s wedding blog post! Sara messaged me a day or two after they got engaged, and I was so excited to photograph her and Brian. Sara is my hair stylist, and she also does all of my seniors’ hair & makes them extra beautiful before their sessions!

Sara and Brian are high school sweethearts (cue alllllll the heart eyes). I’m definitely bias, but I just think couples who have been together since high school are the sweetest, and I love it so much! I’ve loved hearing all about their love story and getting to document it.

On the morning on their wedding day last Saturday, I woke up and saw SNOW on the ground! I knew Sara wanted snowy portraits so badly, so I was super excited for her. By the time we went outside for their portraits, almost all of the snow had melted, until we found a huge a big, snow covered path at Perry Farm Park (YAY!!). This snow added the perfect touch of a winter wonderland feel for their photos, and it’s safe to say that I’m obsessed with them!

We ended their night celebrating at the Quality Inn in Bradley, and it was so much fun! There was such a fun crowd (that included 2 of my other wedding couples)! I just love getting so see so many of my sweet couples <3

Sara + Brian, thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your wedding day! XO!
