A Midsummer Night’s Dream

The sun beams flickered with the rhythm of the wind as it delicately blew the tree’s branches. As she walked towards her love, she was radiant. This was the day they had been waiting for. The butterflies were alive and well in the best way possible, and your heart couldn’t help but flutter as you anxiously awaited his reaction to his beautiful bride.

Maybe it was the fresh scent of pine trees or the warm summer breeze, but something about Michelle and Nigel’s first look was different. It was intimate and perfect in every way.

The sun sat low in the sky when Michelle and Nigel said “I do,” surrounded by majestic evergreen pines at Camp Wokanda in Chillicothe, Illinois. These two were wrapped in love on this special day. Michelle and Nigel’s oldest friend had two very important roles: groomsman and officiant. From a sweet hand-written story about love-struck dinosaurs to a heart-felt ring warming, this ceremony was incredibly memorable!

We are so honored to have taken part in this instrumental day. Thank you, Nigel and Michelle, for welcoming us into your family to celebrate your happily ever after! We wish you two many years of love and happiness.

Michelle’s reaction to seeing herself in her wedding dress for the first time is priceless! Such a beauty!

Michelle decided to style her hair in a similar fashion as her mom’s on her wedding day. So elegantly beautiful!

Nigel, anxiously waiting for his bride.  First looks are so special and intimate; a perfect way to start the wedding festivities.
