Ashley & Bryan’s Wedding Day | Fairbury, Central Illinois Wedding Photographer

Ashley & Bryan had a BE-AUT-I-FUL wedding day!  I was so honored to be their wedding photographer, as I have gotten to know Ashley’s family quite well over the past few years.  I can honestly say that their entire day was a blast & full of love & laughter.  While each & every wedding I photograph is different & unique in their own ways, but regardless of all the differences, I can truly say that my brides & grooms are the most fantastic people.  Bryan & Ashley, I wish you many years of blessings, love, and joy!  Congrats!

The teals & yellows were perfect choices!..

Ashley & her bridesmaids got ready at Ashley’s parent’s house.  I absolutely loved all the details of this home, and most importantly, the surroundings & backdrops for these images are close to heart for Ashley & her family.

Ashley’s dad had the sweetest, most sincere reaction to seeing her in her wedding dress for the first time.. Not a dry eye around!
Stunning bride you make, Ashley!
Bryan was trying to show his serious side…. It didn’t last for long 😉
They chose not to see one another pre-ceremony, but to calm their nerves they held hands w/out peaking, from behind these doors.. So sweet!

No lack of style here, boys!…

I knew of Ashley’s love for Pinterest, so I could not wait to see what crafty, prettiness she would come up w/.  My assumptions were spot on.  She didn’t miss a beat!  Such a beautiful job on all those amazing details, Ashley!
Mr. & Mrs. Youngsma!… 

The bridal party was supposed to be spelling out the bride & groom’s last name…  However, they couldn’t help but have a little word scramble challenge first 😉
I knew as soon as I clicked, that these were going to be two of my favorite images… 
The reception, held at The Chateau looked absolutely amazing… Such a perfect setting for the evening!

Cheers, Bryan & Ashley!
