We could not have asked for a more perfect day for Collin and Emilee's wedding day! Seriously, it was gorgeous in every way!!
I love when I have time to really style and capture the details on a wedding day! It sets the tone for the rest of the day visually and the images really enhance the couple's wedding album.
The handkerchief above was Emilee's grandmother's. I love when brides (or grooms) have heirloom details!
Emilee's was STUNNING! Clean, classic, gorgeous! Gave me all the Audrey Hepburn vibes!!
Emilee's mother and sister assisted her in getting ready.
Her dress had pockets! I love it!!!
The window light was dreamy! Emilee got ready in a condo and one of the upstairs bedrooms was a photographer's dream. Beautiful neutral tones and gorgeous window light. Lovely!!
The guys got ready at a nearby hotel. Love his details!
Before the first look, Emilee shared a first look with her father. These always get me right in the feels!
Before their first look, Collin and Emilee read cards from each other. What a beautiful way to add even more love and emotion to such a beautiful moment!
When it was time, they held hands and turned around to see each other. Such a beautiful moment!!
We did a quick series of portrait with the black painted wall before head off to the golf course at Prairie Links.
Collin and Emilee are naturals in front of the camera! They made my job so easy!!
Emilee's bouquet was so gorgeous!!! The whites, the blush, the gold, the textures, everything was stunning!
Further down the course, we found some beautiful pops of fall colors, so we invited the bridal party to come join us.
This was such a fun bridal party!
Look at all those sweet little flower girls! So adorable!!
Collin and Emilee's bridal party consisted of eight on each side. I love the black dresses and tuxes against the fall colors!
Their videographer prompted them to stand about 15 feet away from their bridal party and have the bridal party run in for a group hug. How fun are these shots from that?? Love it!
We moved up to the clubhouse for the family portraits. I just love that the brick walls were painted black, which tied in perfectly with Collin and Emilee's wedding colors!
Before the ceremony began, I had some time to capture the reception details. They're acrylic sign was so pretty and a unique way to welcome guests!
They're attention to detail was wonderful! I love the acrylic place cards for the head table, the "we do" cookies for guests, and all of the floral elements around the room!
Such a gorgeous day!! Be sure to check back soon for more from Collin + Emilee's wedding!!
