Backyard Wedding in Ottawa, Illinois | Ottawa IL Wedding Photographer | Christie + Liam

Oh my goodness, I just LOVE these two! From the very first FaceTime call with Christie (before her and Liam even booked me as their wedding photographer!), I knew our personalities clicked! I loved how excited these two were to get married and how much detail Christie put into everything-we later found out that our wedding styles (and styles in general) are almost identical!

Christie and Liam originally planned to get married and celebrate with 300 of their friends and family, and once COVID hit, they were given the choice to either postpone their big wedding or change their plans…..and I’m so happy to say that they chose to just change their plans! These two had the most gorgeous ceremony at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in Streator, IL and then had the most Pinterst-worthy backyard reception back at Christie’s parents’ house.

I loved being able to celebrate with them (and capture the most GORGEOUS portraits of the newest Mr. + Mrs. Larkin)! It was incredibly hot and humid, but these two were such troopers, and I love them for that! 🙂

Enjoy some of my favorites of Christie and Liam! <3
