I met Lauren through one of my best friends (Lauren’s her cousin!), and I didn’t meet her or Josh until their wedding day, but as soon as I met them it was like I was a part of the family! They got married in the beautiful St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Aurora, although they forgot rings, but they played it off so well that no one even noticed! We took some of the most pictures outdoors and by the lake, and I got some the sweetest detail shots of their invitation, the jewelry, and the picture of her dad that she pinned to her bouquet.. Plus they had the coolest band and a dance floor that never stopped all night!
Rachael and Joe had a beautiful fall wedding upstate in Pulaski. Rachael got ready in a gorgeous Airbnb next to the Kallet Theater, where the reception was being held, and they tied the knot down the road at the Pulaski Wesleyan Church. They had the most wonderful day filled with good food, donuts, popcorn, and apple cider slushies (THE best), and it was made complete by all the love from their family and friends. A few moments to watch for in the images below are Rachael and Joe's first look, Rachael and her father swing dancing, and the sparkler sendoff. Thank you for letting me be a part of your day, and all the best to you both!
