Michelle and Jeff said I do on March 16th, 2019 in their downtown Galena, IL wedding.
It was the perfect setting for this couple, who is not only beautiful on the outside (seriously, look at their portraits!) but they are both so beautiful on the inside. They make me smile ear to ear. I am so happy they asked me to be a part of their special day.
The best part…I was able to capture the love they have for their friends, the Lord, and one another. They constantly amaze me by how genuine they are and how they keep the important things in life, in perspective.
And as a fellow wedding photographer, Michelle absolutely rocked this midwest wedding with everything she prepared with photography in mind. It was like having a First Look! Oh, and the first look was absolutely beautiful. It leads us directly into their portrait session in downtown Galena.
I think my all-time favorite photo from their day is walking back to the venue. Jeff stopped and dipped his bride to be in the middle of the street. Even with all of the cars, signs, and distractions, this shot remains my favorite because of the pure joy of it.
Every detail at Michelle and Jeff’s reception was so noticeably handcrafted with love. Michelle prepped two buffet lines of Mexican and Chinese cuisine and even had a milk & bookies bar laid out for dessert. How sweet is that?!
Michelle and Jeff, you are so incredibly kind and I’m touched that I was able to be a part of your day. I know God is going to bless your marriage and have it bless those around you, just like it has already done for me. You are awesome. xoxo, Amy.
Oh and downtown Galena, IL can be described as the Stars Hollow of Illinois for all you Gilmore Girl fans.
