A Romantic Kickapoo Creek Winery Wedding | Edwards, Illinois

November 18, 2020

What made Jenna and Arnold’s day so perfect wasn’t necessarily the gorgeous greenery or delicious desserts and food. It wasn’t the delightful weather or the acres of vineyards. It wasn’t the beautiful decor so thoughtfully arranged to perfection.

These things certainly add to the experience of the day. But what really made this day so perfect was the sincere love that flooded every corner… of every room… of every second… for this bride and groom.

The love they have for each other. The love their family and friends have for each of them. And the love they all have for Jesus.

Being in the wedding industry, you get to witness so many shades of love. There are no right or wrong shades, but some people just make you feel their love on such a deep, profound level. The kind of level that makes you realize the good that still lives in this world. That love can and should be how it is in the fairytales.

We have so many favorite moments from Jenna and Arnold’s wedding day. But one moment that has really stuck with us and will stay with us forever was the heartfelt speech Arnold gave to his family, friends, and new wife. He spoke about Jesus Christ and the incredible love he has for us all. (Yes, we cried like babies.) You guys, the secret to the profoundly deep love these two share is in their shared love of Christ. And that is beautiful, indeed!

Our next favorite moment was of course the sparkler send off and Jenna’s sparkle tennis shoes, because we all need a bit of sparkle in our lives (especially after the whirlwind that has been 2020).

When you meet two people this amazing, you know deep in your heart that God placed them there for a reason. We’re so thankful for Jenna and Arnold! We can’t wait to watch their love for each other and their love for Jesus grow stronger with each passing day. Congrats, you two! We hope you’re able to relive every moment of your day through your images.
