The Start of an Adventure

October 14, 2017

Their eyes locked and it had begun. It was only the start of their adventure.

Adventures come in many shapes and sizes. But their adventure? Well, it comes in the form of love, and it will live on for many years to come.

Kendra and Chase live in the moment…there’s no doubt about it. They are so full of energy and life, it’s incredible to watch them together. Not often do you find a passion that’s so raw and genuine — where dreams become a reality.

Based on their love for adventure, it was only fitting for their ceremony and reception to be held at Wildlife Prairie Park in Hanna City, Illinois. From the groomsmen’s wooden ties to the stunning succulent center pieces, this day couldn’t have been more perfect. (Seriously, check out the groomsmen’s ties…they’re AWESOME!)

Though this day was beyond special, there were some important people who couldn’t be there to watch Kendra and Chase begin this new journey together. But Chase carried them with him in a very special way…his ring is Kendra’s and his grandparent’s rings combined into one.

As these sweet moments live on in their hearts, there isn’t a single doubt in our minds that adventure will continue to find Kendra and Chase in many beautiful ways.

Kendra and Chase, we’ve loved every single minute of getting to know you two! We feel incredibly humbled to have taken part in your special day, and we can’t wait to see how your journey unfolds. Congratulations!
