Lovely outside late summer wedding, just what wedding dreams are made of! From our perspective the day was flawless and Jenny and Jon were just gorgeous! Jenny had picked out the perfect dress, it was so Jenny. Our day started with getting ready photos at one of Champaign’s premier hotels, the iHotel. A great location with lots of great light. From here it was on to the ceremony location at Champaign’s Arboretum. Jenny picked out a prefect spot under the big oak trees right next to the small pond. By the time the ceremony got under way nearly everyone was happily sitting in the shade. Family and guests were serenaded to the sounds of a professional banjo player, it fit the mode of this casual outside affair. The ceremony was officiated by Jenny’s long time childhood paster friend who was determined to keep it short.Everyone was thankful! After the ceremony we did a few quick shots at the Arboretum and then a short trip to downtown Champaign for some fun photos of the bride and groom and wedding party. Next up the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts for dinner and dancing. All in all a great wedding! Congrats to Jenny and Jon on such a gorgeous wedding. All of your time and efforts paid off Jenny!

I also want to give a big shout out to Bridget Barnlund my special 2nd shooter on this day!
