Lauren and Tim’s wedding day was something of true bliss! Tucked away in a little town called Apple River, Oak Hill Weddings was the perfect place for these two to embark on their new life together.

      Since I mainly shoot weddings in the downtown Chicago, I was taken back by just how beautiful the countryside of Illinois is. From serene landscape to the lush florals by the bride’s aunt this wedding was downright breathtaking. I simply loved the classic black and white stripe decor along with the touches of gold throughout. It was the perfect blend of natural eloquence.

      I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of Lauren and Tim’s wedding day! I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to capture it all and I wish nothing but the best for these two newlyweds!

      Just simply beautiful. Thank you for sharing your day with all of us that couldn’t be there. God Bless you on your road of life together.

      Are you able to tell me where the bride got her escort cards from? Love those!

      Ellen I believe these were handmade by the bride and her family.
