A Rainy Day Rustic Wedding in Teutopolis
SEPTEMBER 8TH, 2018


If rain on your wedding day means good luck, then Dallas and Courtney should be set for life! In fact, due to the wannabe monsoon that occured all over central Illinois on Saturday, I’m guessing most couples were blessed with good luck. Driving that morning to the Sacred Heart Lillyville Church for details was a bit rough in the downpour of rain, but we finally arrived, feeling ready and challenged for the day ahead. It was about the time I arrived that I realized the seemingly ongoing theme with this couple: water. You may remember their engagement session post where I talked about one of their first dates that ended up in a fountain, and then their engagement session where we ended up back in that very same fountain, and now, here on their wedding day, more water! I called it “God’s fountain” if you will, and enjoyed the full circled irony.

The girls got ready at the salon before meeting me at the church, and there was a last minute change to have Courtney dress in the chapel rather than the hall down the road, so that she got to stay dry before the ceremony. Despite their almost 400 person guest list, the church didn’t have much extra room, and with the absence of sun inside was a bit dark, so Courtney dressed right inside the front doors, but I still love the photos and the light we had to work with! I was back and forth with the guys who were in the house next door, and they were relaxing and enjoying the Glazik-brother-made vodka, Down East. The traditional catholic ceremony was sweet and personal, and standing room only! These two were surrounded by so many friends and family who love them, and it was wonderful to witness.

Fortunately, we didn’t have to battle the rain all day (despite what our weather apps said) and the rain stopped JUST in time for portraits after the ceremony at Courtney’s family farm! I loved the portraits with their cows too! Shortly after finishing portraits the pair entered (Star-Wars style) into the reception and the party began. I’m so happy that these two allowed me the opportunity to capture their special day and I sure hope they’re having fun in Dublin, Ireland!
