Summer Allerton Park Wedding Sunken Garden | Jared + Katie 9.3.11

Summer Allerton Park Wedding Sunken Garden, Monticello, IL

Mark and I are always excited to shoot an Allerton Park Wedding and this day was no different.  The combination of the already beautiful setting and Katie and Jared’s impeccable taste made this a great wedding!  Lets just start with that stunning wedding gown!  WOW!  Mark and I still talk about how gorgeous it was, great choice Katie!  Helen from English Hedgerow outdid herself once again with the bold arrangements the girls carried and that gave the reception hall the perfect touch.  Katie’s jewelry was different than the typical bride may wear which she questioned as she was putting it on, “is it too much?”  Someone exclaimed, “it’s your wedding day!  Today is the day to be over the top!”  I couldn’t agree more, I loved her big jewelry.  Katie and Jared started their new beginning as husband and wife in the Sunken Gardens at Allerton.  After the ceremony we headed back to the mansion for a gorgeous dinner and reception inside the mansion.  Katie and Jared had been practicing their dancing and impressed all of their guests with all kinds of twists, turns, and dips during their first dance as a married couple.  Great wedding Katie and Jared!  Best of luck to you in your new life together!:)

Jess (and mark!)

One of my favorite moments of the day. (below)  All of the expressions are fabulous.  Obviously you can’t see me but I had the same look on my face! That champagne really popped!

It was so easy working with Katie because she can pull off so many different expressions.  She has a beautiful smile but can also give a great serious face.
