Riley & Anthony | Salem, IL Wedding

This year we started a marathon of wedding weekends on June 2nd…sentimentally for us it couldn’t have had a better beginning!  My cousin, Riley, entrusted us to capture her day through photographs.  It’s always special to us be to chosen to be a part of a bride & groom’s special day…but to be chosen by family is the best!!!  This day brought tears of joy and laughter and tears of sadness and remembrance. We were honored that we could capture all of these and the memories in between.  The entire day was such a beautiful celebration of Riley and Anthony’s love story together and the happiness that they have brought to each others lives. But there was no denying that someone very special was missing on this wedding day, Riley’s dad…my Uncle Scott.  Though he wasn’t there in person to celebrate,  Riley did so many things to honor him.  It was truly beautiful how not just Riley but her whole family honored their dad throughout the day. They made sure he was a part of the entire celebration and I know without a doubt that he was smiling down on his girls with so much pride.

Riley and Anthony, it was so much fun to be able to celebrate along side you as you enter this next chapter of your lives together.  The way you two smile and laugh together is so beautiful and we pray that as you walk through life together you will continue to smile, laugh, and love each other in the same big way you did on your wedding day. We are so happy for you, and hope you enjoy a peek of some of our favorites from your special day.  We love you guys! Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Bradley!
