Korte | Alton, IL Wedding

When Kortney asked us if we would be willing to travel to southern Illinois for her fall wedding we were thrilled.  We love to travel to new venues, but this venue was much more than we could have ever imagined.  They were married at Lewis and Clark Community College in a beautiful old chapel.  It literally looked like something straight from a southern wedding fairy tale.   I can’t even tell you how many times that day I said, “This the most beautiful community college campus I have ever seen!”  It had endless possibilities for pictures, we could have shot for hours!  But probably my favorite part of the day was the gorgeous evening light we caught right after the ceremony just outside the chapel.  Those just might be some of my favorite shots all year!  It was a beautiful day with a beautiful couple on the most beautiful campus, and we are so excited to share some of our favorites with all of you.  Enjoy!
