Neisen Wedding | Quincy, IL

As the snow falls outside my window today on this late April Tuesday, I can’t help but be reminded just how unpredictable Midwest weather can be. Though it didn’t snow the day of Shelby and Jared’s wedding they had their share of “Midwest weather”. The Saturday of their wedding it was a rainy one. I’m not talking rain here and there, it rained ALL day, non stop! Though the weather didn’t choose to cooperate that didn’t matter because at the end of the day Shelby and Jared were married and that is ALL that mattered. But let’s be honest, most brides would be a stressed mess with the weather that day yet Shelby stayed calm and took it in strides. We may not have gotten the outside photos we had all planned on but these two had the most beautiful day surrounded by family and friends celebrating the start of their married life together, and that is what really matters! Congratulations Shelby & Jared, thank you for letting us play a part in your special day!

We can’t forget to mention these awesome vendors that helped make Shelby and Jared’s day possible.
