Colten + Janae | A Candlelit Romantic Wedding at Pear Tree Estates Champaign, IL

October 19, 2021

Janae and Colten have the kind of chemistry photographers dream about! And their wedding day was certainly no exception. The day was beautiful but the couple and their love was simply drop dead gorgeous! Capturing the tender moments of this day was such blessing for us. 

The entire day was full of laughter, joy, love, and so many beautiful details. They thought of everything… from a cascading champagne wall to jaw dropping decor. And Pear Tree Estates just escalated that beauty to a whole other level.

To top off this incredible night (like that’s even possible…), they had a cigar roller making fresh cigars during their reception. LIKE WHAT! How awesome is that? Talk about a unique touch to your wedding that your guests LOVE!

We ended the night in the most perfect way… at sunset in a field of wildflowers. Yes, this is what dreams are made of. 😍 We sorta love our jobs. And we sorta love Janae and Colten! Thank you so much, you two, for letting us play a role in capturing such an incredible day in your lives! We can’t wait to see where your journey takes you!
