October 30, 2019

Hey friends and Happy Tuesday! Today, we get to share a stunner of a wedding that our sweet team members photographed on Saturday for their amazing couple Sam and Austen! Sam and Austen’s gorgeous wedding photos at The Cannery in Eureka, IL have our whole hearts- isn’t it just so evident from looking at these images that these two completely adore one another and were just anxiously awaiting the day they would finally become husband and wife? Their first look totally has me all teary- go scroll on down to see it! My heart!

Sam and Austen’s wedding day was totally rainy from start to finish, but they did not let the rain steal even an ounce of the joy from their beautiful wedding day. We LOVE their rainy portraits- plus, how gorgeous are their photos inside The Cannery?! Talk about the perfect, most gorgeous venue to take portraits in, right? Wow!!! We love what our team had to say about their time with Sam and Austen on Saturday… just take a look at this sweetness! 🙂

“Hayley and Hank here with an AWESOME fall rainy wedding day! It literally rained like CRAZY all day, but we still were able to take some gorgeous photos and celebrate these two’s marriage! Fun fact: Sam and Austen were the first Caitlin and Luke Couple we met, and we actually photographed their engagement session on another rainy day exactly ONE YEAR before their wedding!!! It was amazing to come full circle, and we have seriously been counting down days til their celebration! Their entire day was beautiful, even among the torrential downpour Both of them were so kind and loving to everyone, and each part of their day pointed back to their relationship with Jesus and each other ️ Plus we all had a blast with some pretty awesome dancing through the night! Sam and Austen, thank you so much for letting us be a part of your day. You are honestly some of the most caring, funny, and joy-filled people we have met! We wish you the best for many, many years to come! ”

Sam and Austen, although Luke and I weren’t the ones who got to shoot your beautiful wedding day, we truly cannot express enough how much we have ADORED getting to know you both throughout your wedding experience with our team!! You have the sweetest story, and you guys have been so kind & phenomenal to work with from the moment you first inquired with our team, and we hope your wedding was everything you could’ve ever asked for and more! Your love for Jesus and for each other just totally shines through in your images, and our whole team has been blessed by the opportunity to work with you on your best day ever. Wishing you all the best as you start your MARRIED life together- yay!!! We just love you guys!
