Gabe & Hannah: The Refinery Wedding Photos

August 7, 2018

Happy Tuesday, friends! You know what Tuesday means… it means we get to share Saturday’s wedding with you all! So here we go! We had an amazing day with Hannah and Gabe on Saturday on their wedding day! We started off the day with Hannah at the cutest little Airbnb in Champaign before heading to The University of Illinois for their precious first look (we’re serious… scroll on down to see Gabe’s sweet reaction to seeing his bride!) and portrait time! They were married at a darling church at the most sentimental and sweet ceremony, and then we all headed over to The Refinery in Champaign to get the night started!

Hannah and Gabe have the sweetest story… these two met their freshman year of college on their way to church when a mutual friend invited them to go to church with him… and on the ride their, Hannah and Gabe ended up talking the entire way to church! Down the road, Gabe brought Hannah back to that same church and proposed to her on the steps of that church! Is that not the most precious story ever? These two are the real deal, that is for sure.

Hannah and Gabe, you two are some of the sweetest and most genuine people we’ve ever had the opportunity to work with, and we couldn’t be more honored to have been a part of your wedding day! We wish you two nothing but the absolute best as you start your life together as husband and wife, and we hope have the best honeymoon ever. Enjoy this little sneak peek into some of our favorite images from your day! Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. Stoll!

Xoxo!!!
Caitlin and Luke
