Jake + Kristina | A Gorgeous Fall Wedding at Top of the Hill in Chillicothe, IL

December 22, 2023

Oh my goodness, do we LOVE this couple! They are just full of so much life and love and JOY. Kristina has a smile and laugh that’s just simply contagious and when Kristina and Jake are together, it’s illuminated even more. This was a day that was truly built upon the foundation of pure love.

We met Kristina a couple years ago. She was the Hoop House videographer for a wedding we were photographing, and well the rest has been history in our friendship since! We never imagined we’d be photographing her super special day with the man of her dreams. But man, what an incredible honor.

We loved literally every moment of this day, from their amazing vendors to the thoughtful and tear-jerking moments that were at every corner of this day. Kristina’s first look with her dad was enough to keep us all fighting back tears, right up there with her and Jake’s intimate vow exchange. But one of our favorite moments was the way they incorporated their love of games into their unity service during their ceremony with a good ole’ classic came of Connect Four. And well, as you can see from the photos, Kristina came out victorious (get used to it Jake hahaha 😉)!

This day was super sweet, but also tones of fun! Kristina and Jake are such beautiful people, and they’re even more beautiful when they’re together. We know your future has gorgeous days ahead, Kristina and Jake! We love you both so much, and we can’t thank you enough for letting us capture this incredible day in your history.
