Kate + John

Kate and John’s wedding was nothing short of amazing: tons of handpicked flora and fauna from their garden, a vintage fur shawl from her grandmother, show-stopping diamond earrings on loan from her aunt, a darling bridal party, a decadent vegan cake created by a relative, one of a kind wedding ring for the groom … I could keep going. Held on her family’s picturesque property just outside of Springfield, Illinois, the ceremony overlooked their lake, which was surrounded by trees with autumnal foliage; it was the idyllic setting for a wedding. My favorite moment was when Kate and John celebrated the beginning of their wedding night in their own special way … a first dance under the moon and stars.
