This November weather has been absolutely incredible!! Coni + Stu’s November wedding day was no exception. Like so many couples this year, these two had to alter their original wedding plans, but their intimate wedding day at Willowhaven Park couldn’t have been more perfect! It was a perfectly sunny day and 70 degrees (amazing, right?!).
We started the day getting ready at Best Western Plus in Bradley, Illinois. Some of my very favorite hair and makeup artists: Livi Esthetics and Sara Toepper Wedding Hair, were there getting the girls all ready and looking so beautiful. I recommend these girls to all of my brides-they’re amazing! Anyways, as I was photographing all of Coni’s gorgeous details, the girls were getting ready, listening to awesome music, and popping champagne! It was such an awesome morning!! We then went into Coni and Stu’s perfect first look outside of the hotel, in front of the dreamiest fall colored tree. First looks always give me ALL the feels, and I love them so much.
After their first look, we captured some fall portraits of just Coni and Stu and then headed to their ceremony location at Willowhaven Park. Their ceremony was one of my favorites that I’ve ever photographed-SO many happy tears from everyone there (including me)!!
Seriously, Coni and Stu had the most gorgeous November wedding day, and I’m loving all of their images so much! Enjoy some of my very favorites below 🙂
