Taylor & Derek | Newly Wed | Hillsboro, Illinois

The warm weather and bright light framed their wedding day from the start. All day Derek had a grin on his face that you could not take away, and when he gazed at his bride, Taylor, and their eyes locked, you could not mistake the intense love and happiness that they share. 

Goodness gracious this wedding day was beautiful, and I wholeheartedly mean it!

Taylor and Derek have been together for many years, and everyone was so excited to celebrate their wedding day and the beginning of their forever together. Throughout their day family, friends, and loved ones shared their happiness and love.

Every wedding day that I have photographed has had beauty and love overflowing (as it should be!), and this day was full of beautiful, intense emotion. The joyous ceremony remembered those that could not be there and celebrated the bride and groom. It was a tearjerker, and I'll be the first to admit that the emotions were flowing for me as they were for everyone else in the sanctuary. 

It is amazing to be connected to our couples in sharing such an intimate, emotional, and absolutely beautiful day. 

Taylor and Derek - Thank you for opening your hearts and sharing your love and wedding day with us... We will be forever grateful to have been able to spend your wedding day with the two of you! And we're so excited to meet your little one :)
