Allerton Park and Retreat Center, Monticello, IL

Spring can be so frustratingly unpredictable sometimes. Brittany + Bradley’s engagement session was about a week away and there was rain in the forecast. But we waited it out and as the day got closer the forecast was looking better, but still not great. After talking over our options and weighing the odds, we decided to head towards Allerton Park and Retreat Center to try and get in a few good shots before the rain!

We were able to walk around and explore the park a little bit until the dark clouds began rolling in. We immediately headed towards the closest cover to attempt to wait it out. Luckily it didn’t last long ad we were still able to grab a few inside the gorgeous gazebo named House of the Golden Buddhas.

The rain didn’t last long and the sun began to poke out! We had a small window of time before the next line of storms were set to pass through, so we worked fast to finish up before getting rained out!

I am so excited to be the one who will get to capture this beautiful couple’s big day. I just know it’s going to be full of love, fun, and laughter. September can’t come soon enough!
