Morgan & Colter | Macomb, IL Wedding

We are so incredibly excited to be sharing Colter & Morgan’s wedding blog with you! We were blessed with the most gorgeous weather, that was completely unexpected! Rain had been in the forecast ALL week (imagine that right?!?!) and so the blue skies and sunshine were the perfect surprise.

There truly was SO much that I loved about their wedding day, but one of my very favorites was just how much they made EVERYONE feel loved and appreciated, including us! For example, they had quite the group of adorable little ones in their wedding and they made sure they felt just as much a part of their wedding as anyone else. It was so special to see them love on the kiddos all day and then dance the night away with them at the reception.

In case you can’t tell, we love these two! Their day radiated love for one another, love for God and love for family. And those three things are things that we absolutely admire in a couple. I couldn’t help but smile as I edited these photos because their love for one another just radiates through the photos. We can’t wait for you to see them!!! But fore warning, I had ALOT of favorites so it’s a bit of a long one. 😉

Morgan and Colter, we can not say enough just how much we have LOVED getting to know you guys! You two are the most genuine, caring and joyful couple and you make our job FUN! Thank you for being so amazing! It has been our pure joy to get to be your photographers, and we are so excited for you guys as you start your married life together. We are just so very grateful to have been a part of it.

And of course a special shout out to all the amazing vendors that helped make Morgan & Colter’s day perfect!
