Wedding at the Heritage Prairie Farm in Elburn, Illinois was a true honor!
Being able to witness two people make a forever commitment to each other is certainly inspiring. Thanks to a glowing recommendation from one of our other couples, we were lucky enough to witness such a sight when we photographed Sam and Patrick’s wedding at the Heritage Prairie Farm in Elburn, Illinois. It was truly a sight to see, two people so in love among a rustic wedding that was awe inspiring. Therefore, we certainly want to share all of the details with you.
This rustic fairytale started on the farm. There were children playing, quality girl time, a cold beer, happy groomsmen, and even an intimate first-look session under the oak tree. The bride and groom were hidden away in the barn while they readied themselves for the day of festivities ahead. And, after the beautiful first-look, it was time for this lovely couple to walk down the aisle, forever committing themselves to one another.
