White Pines, IL Wedding Photography | Jerry & Chrissy

I've been looking forward to Chrissy and Jerry's wedding since I met with them back at the beginning of 2015!! When they explained the location of their ceremony, I just knew it was going to be gorgeous day. And after I photographed their engagement pictures last Fall I knew that it would be a fun day. I was not disappointed on either account!

These girls were so great and made me feel welcome from the moment I stepped into the getting ready room.

I don't think anyone could handle Chrissy's niece and I dare you to try. Such a little sweetie!!
