A love story couldn’t have started any sweeter than that of Lindsay and Ryan. It was the summer of 2011 when both Lindsay and Ryan we’re home from college. Needing summer employment while taking the Summer off from their studies – both found themselves working for the South Elgin park district running various summer kid camps. They quickly caught each other’s attention but it practically too Ryan the entire summer to work up the courage to ask Lindsay out.
From their first date these two have been on many adventures together. Whether it be geocaching or traveling to Glacier National Park or the place where Ryan proposed, Banff National Park. Their easy going light hearted personalities are a perfect fit for each other.
We were honored to be chosen to capture Lindsay and Ryan’s day. Fortunately they did not need to postpone their wedding as was the case with so many other couples this year. We were so happy to be able to celebrate along with them on their September wedding day.
We were also extremely excited to capture one of the first weddings at a beautiful new (yet to be named) wedding venue in Burlington, IL. The exposed rounded ceiling rafters along with the elegant rustic feel was the perfect location for this fun-loving couple.
Enjoy some of our favorite moments from their day.
A special thanks to all the vendors who made Lindsay & Ryan’s day beautiful.
