Redfield Estate Wedding Photography

Amy and Brian Wedding

So excited to share this beautiful day with you!!  Amy and Brian’s wedding day started off with a bang, right with the first look, as it was a shorter, 6-hour day!!  Amy and Brian had picked out their favorite spot for the first look, so even though there was some rain in the forecast, they had this gorgeous location, and thought they might as well take a chance and go for it! Right as we walked Amy over to see Brian, it started to rain!  Of course, no worries, we had clear umbrellas all ready for them.  They had their first look in the luscious green that is The Grove Redfield Estates backdrop and then we went on to some rainy portraits.

Amy and Brain were so amazing dealing with all the last minute changes— from portraits in the rain, to moving their ceremony from the outdoor space to the covered space!   It all worked out great in the end and their chill, easy-going attitudes truly just made for such an epic day.

I can’t go any farther in this blog post without mentioning Amy’s amazing veil.  When I first saw it I fell in love with it!!  Turns out it was her mom’s veil from her wedding day and it was absolutely beautiful.  But honestly, I was basically in love with Amy’s whole outfit, so perfect for her outdoor, forest preserve wedding!!  Shout out to BHLDN for her amazing dress too!!

The day went on and the rain let up for some family photos outside, but came back just in time for reception (which was covered!!).  The food was great, the dance floor was hopping, and they even had my favorite late-night snack of pretzels and cheese!  We had such a blast and even got a break in the rain to do some cool night portraits at the end of the night!!  If you haven’t noticed by now, night shots at the end of your day are basically my favorite way to end a wedding gallery! 

Thank you x 1 million to Amy and Brian!!  It was such a blast to be a part of your wedding day and I am so thankful you gave me the honor of documenting it!
