heritage prairie farm vintage bohemian wedding

 sarah + rick | elburn, illinois

this Heritage Prairie Farm Rustic Vintage Wedding was a special one for me.  I was sarahs studio assistant when I was living in chicago and she is an amazingly talented family photographer so the pressure was on!  one of my favorite things about sarah is she is so thoughtful.  when it came time for my birthday or christmas I always knew I was in for a treat.  not only are her gifts so incredibly meaningful, her gift wrapping is impeccable as well, and let me tell you, I am a sucker for good packaging! so I basically knew for a fact her wedding details were going to be nothing short of amazing and that they were!

sarah and rick dated for a longgg time before rick popped the question. we always joke that it took him long enough, but nothing could be more perfect on their wedding day.  from the personalized rustic invitations to the vintage china table settings, there was nothing missing from this intimate barn wedding.  

I am always so grateful clients that turn into friends, but there is something special about friends who turn into clients.

ps please all take a second and swoon over the back of sarahs dress.  I mean come onnn!!

I was sold from the minute Lauren said her wedding would be an outdoor ceremony in front of a waterfall in petoskey michigan I was SOLD.  my mind immediately goes racing back to the family trips on mackinaw island and higgins lake.  ugh, its just the best.  if you have never been, seriously get your butt in the car and drive to mackinaw island right this second. best. place. on. earth. anyway, I digress :) 

lauren and brian. where do i begin.  the whole day lauren was just the cutest darn little thing, thanking me for everything and so grateful that i was there. these two have been together forever....or at least thats what their friends tease them about ;)  their wedding was 13 years in the making. 13 years!!! they met their sophomore year in college and have been together ever since.  they got engaged in bay harbor, michigan (the inn at bay harbor is another place you have to visit btw. gorg!) so they couldn't imagine their wedding anywhere else.  this day and these people could not have been any better!  

and how about that northern michigan sunset ;)
