A Country Chic Wedding at the Kankakee County Fairgrounds and Exposition Center, Kankakee, Illinois

Hello to another #weddingwednesday!
Last weekend, Brandon and I had the privilege of photographing the wedding day of two of the most genuine people, Gabbi + Klinton. While prepping the week before the wedding I was a little nervous that the heat and humidity were going to stick around, but we got so lucky! The day was beautiful, not a cloud in the sky, and just enough of a cool breeze. It was marvelous!
We began the day with the ladies, photographing details and hanging out as they played games (it’s always nice when hair and makeup get done early!) and enjoyed time together. The guys met up with us before the ceremony so we were able to capture a first look with both Gabbi’s dad and Klinton. After the ceremony we went on to do bridal party photos and some bridals, then on to the party!
Gabbi + Klinton, thank you for including Brandon and I on your wedding day. We had so much fun and hope it was a day you’ll never forget.
I LOOVED Gabbi’s earrings! 😍
By the time we arrived, all hair and makeup were complete, so the girls were just hanging out!
She’s SO pretty!
Klinton’s 4th of July socks were a hit. In fact, all of the guys had on America themed socks!
Sweet moments between Gabbi and her dad!
I loved the windows in the church so much we just had to do a quick photo before leaving!
Shelia (of Sheila’s Sunny Bloomers) totally rocked the florals of the day. Stunning!
See! The socks!
Gabbi’s veil kept slipping out as we tried to get this shot, but we finally got it and it’s one of my favorites!!!
By far my favorite portraits are always at sunset, though these may be an all time favorite…
