When Alexandra and Jason approached me about shooting their wedding, I immediately wanted everything to do with their wedding! Alexandra and Jason are incredibly kind hearted and passionate humans. They are the kind of people who can't help but radiate a magnetic energy. As they told me more about how they envisioned their wedding: An intimate farm wedding, a telescope for star gazing, farm to table organic food, vintage tablewares, their favorite honky tonk band, a silly duet that the bride and groom would sing, s'mores, the presence of Alexandra's childhood pen pal from England, handmade everything (mostly made by Alexandra herself!), I couldn't help but excitedly tell them I would be absolutely honored to photograph their wedding.
Alexandra and Jason had their wedding at The Mora Farm in Waterman, IL. Chicagoland brides, if you want an authentic but professional farm style wedding, this is THE place to get hitched! Only 45 minutes outside of Chicago and down a gravel road, you'll find the most picturesque farm with well manicured grounds and plenty of authentic, rustic charm. This place is magical, people!!
I digress! When a couple really pours themselves into their wedding, there's this captivating energy that brings about the most beautiful and pure emotions in everyone. This is what I call photography gold! My favorite weddings are the ones where I can't help but smile, laugh and cry along with everyone throughout the night and Alexandra and Jason's wedding was, without a doubt, one of my favorite weddings of all time!
