Megan + Kurt Married

Megan + Kurt Married! I was invited to document their destination wedding being held in their hometown of Bloomington – Normal, Illinois, located in center of the state and a few hour south of Chicago. They decided on a spring wedding in April, which the day ended up as a typical Midwest spring day, a bit cold, overcast, and some rain. It didn’t put a damper on things at all though, Megan was prepared with a beautiful white faux fur shawl to keep her warm as we went around downtown Boomington for her and Kurt’s wedding day portraits with their bridal party.

The bride wore her grandmothers green velvet high heel shoes for part of the day (shhhh they were a little small but fashion hurts when looking gorgeous for wedding day portraits!)

The brides florist provided a stunning full bloom single white rose for her to wear in her hair after their wedding ceremony so she could remove her veil for portraits around town.
