A Simple Military Ballroom Wedding | Champaign, IL
– May 26th, 2018 –

This was a day long in the making. Hilary and Matt met many years ago and have been dating long distance almost ever since. Planning their Illinois wedding from the state of Washington couldn’t have been easy, but it was beautiful! Matt, thank you so very much for your dedication to this country, and Hilary for your support. Photographing your perfect military wedding on Memorial Day weekend was everything I could have imagined and more, despite the heat. Luckily the Regent Ballroom was not only gorgeous but cool! Thanks again for allowing Brandon and I to follow along and document your celebrations, and don’t forget about that anniversary session in Washington, or wherever the Navy takes you both!

Such a sweet first look shared before the ceremony.
