Backyard Wedding in Edwardsville, Illinois
Shelby and Tristan are the kind of couple where you can tell immediately how strong their love for each other is. Their intimate backyard wedding was so sweet and full of so much love, I was actually brought to tears more than once! Shelby wanted to do things more traditionally by having Tristan wait to see her until she walked down the aisle. She did have a first look with her father and you can see some photos of that below!
Before they made it down the aisle, they had a private vow reading. It was just them, me and the videographer and it was such an intimate moment that I felt so honored to be documenting for them! They both stood on opposite sides of a door and poured their hearts out to each other. There were lots of tears all around and it was one of the most precious moments of the day. If you aren’t sure about doing a private vow reading, I highly recommend it!
Their small backyard wedding was in a beautiful neighborhood way out in the country in Edwardsville, Illinois. The ceremony took place outside right in front of a huge willow tree that way swaying in the wind. The weather could not have been more perfect! The was a gorgeous sunset that ended the evening, so of course we took advantage of that and got some great sunset couple portraits. Sunsets portraits are always my favorite part of the wedding day!
