Carley & Austin | Colchester, IL Wedding

Hey friends and happy Tuesday! I can’t say enough just how honored we were to be a part of Carley & Austin’s wedding day. Carley had put so much thought into every aspect of their day and so being chosen to play a part in their day was so humbling. She had literally thought of everything. All the details were incredible, the reception food was delicious, her hair and makeup team was phenomenal, I could honestly go on and on. Carley picked incredible vendors to help make their day perfect.  But probably my most favorite part of the day was the reception. Carley & Austin planned a surprise gender reveal for their little one that is due this fall. It was SO much fun. The reactions of her parents and wedding party were priceless and it was so much fun to capture. I can’t wait for ya’ll to see those and MANY MANY other favorites from their day. It’s a long post but I promise, you want to look at them all! It really was such a great day! Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
