It’s official… The 2016 wedding season has started for By Kara, and it started with a bang! Going into my fourth wedding season is so exciting, and I am looking forward to all of the other weddings I am able to document this year!

You probably remember Amanda and Adam from their engagement session last May, or maybe from Adam’s brother’s wedding in September 2014. Or maybe these two are new faces to you who read the blog. Whatever it may be, I just have to tell you more about these two…

Amanda and Adam are the people that you just want to be around. Their presence simply brings happiness to those around them, and you can’t deny it. They can laugh, celebrate like crazy, joke, and even give one another a hard time, but they love intensely, and they love deeply. Time after time, I am in awe of their truly intense love for one another. 

On April 23rd, Amanda and Adam were surrounded by their close friends and families for a wedding ceremony and reception at Seven Bridges Golf Club in Woodridge, Illinois. The day was beautiful with bright light and a breeze, and happiness was truly overflowing from everyone celebrating alongside the couple. 

Seven Bridges Golf Club was an amazing venue and accommodating to the couple, their guests, and their vendors. The ceremony was filled with bright, airy light flooding through the windows, while the reception space was filled with a soft ambiance and romance. It was perfectly fitting for these two!

And, after dinner, we (me, my second shooter and husband Kyle, Amanda, and Adam) snuck outside for some breathtaking sunset photos. What a perfect end to their day! 

Amanda and Adam – You two are simply a joy to know and work with! I hope married life is treating you both well! #nageleeverafter

  1. […] and friends of mine. I’ve had the honor to photograph them from their engagement in 2015 and wedding day in 2016 to their life’s milestones as their family has grown over the years. It’s crazy […]
