Kayla & Mitchell | Carthage, IL

Kayla and Mitchell had a beautiful Friday evening wedding at Lake Hill Winery in Carthage.  We love to shoot at Lake Hill, but hadn’t been there yet this wedding season so it was great to be there and use their beautiful scenery for pictures.  Add in all the beautiful details that Kayla had planned and it was even more perfect! We aren’t kidding, every detail was beautiful and thought out; Kayla’s boots were embroidered with their wedding date, all her family heirloom jewelry, the personalized water bottles for their guests. And our favorite was the stain glass that Kayla’s mom made for the couple that hang at the front of the pergola during their ceremony. You could tell a lot of planning had gone into every detail. It truly was a gorgeous wedding!
Congratulations Mitchell and Kayla!  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day and trusting us to capture your memories!   We hope you enjoy a few of our favorites.
