Hey friends and happy Tuesday! Get ready, because we are SO excited to share today’s post with you all… oh my goodness! Emily and Jacob had the most beautiful, sweet wedding day this past Saturday, and it was truly such an honor for Luke and I to get to be a part of it! These two have been nothing but a complete joy to get to work with from the moment they first inquired with us, and we just cannot believe their wedding day has already come and gone. We only have 2 more weddings as a business for all of 2019- where has the time gone?! Ahh! We absolutely loved finishing off quite the streak of 7 beautiful weddings on back to back weekends with these two on Saturday! Yay!
Emily and Jacob are just the kind of people you have to love being around. They are so down to earth, kind, happy, and just plain fun… and they have the sweetest relationship ever! These guys first met back in junior high, and because I have grandparents who met in elementary school, I have a soft spot in my heart for stories like theirs! (Fun fact: Luke and I actually got married on their 50th wedding anniversary! So special!) This day was so long-awaited for Emily and Jacob, and I think you can totally tell that from Jacob’s reaction when he saw Emily walking down the aisle… scroll on down to the ceremony photos to see what I mean! Ahh! Just the sweetest.
Emily and Jacob were married on Saturday at the most beautiful St. Patrick’s Church of Merna wedding ceremony, we took their wedding photos at Ewing Manor (SO beautiful- we always love photographing at Ewing!), and then they danced the night away with their friends and family at their beautiful wedding reception at The Marriott in Uptown Normal! These two have been SO good to us and we could not be more grateful to have been a part of their best day ever!
Emily and Jacob, we just adore you both! Thank you for inviting us to celebrate your beautiful wedding day, and know how much you both mean to Luke and I! It’s been the most fun getting to know you both and getting to be your wedding photographers, and we cannot wait to see what married life holds for you two. So much love to you both and a huge congrats from Luke and I!
So much love!
Caitlin & Luke
We want to extend a huge thank you to the amazing vendor team that made this beautiful wedding day possible! 💗
