Cristine and David’s intimate wedding day at Blessed Sacrament in Springfield, Illinois was perfect… The bursting love between the couple, the gorgeous church, and the tight knit family were unforgettable. So excited to share it with my blog readers today!

These two met while working together, and since then, their love has grown! I loved when Cristine shared their proposal with me, too! While the couple was vacationing in Florida, David planned a private, candlelit dinner on the beach… Of course flowers and champagne were there, too! Just before they sat down at the table, David proposed to Cristine and she said yes. What a beautiful setting and part of their story!

So, when Cristine reached out late last year looking for a photographer for her intimate July wedding, I was so honored! And soon enough, it was time for their wedding day after months of planning… The day started out quietly with Cristine and her daughter enjoying the morning together before the wedding ceremony. Oh, and this ceremony was so meaningful. These two are all about family, so their wedding day vision was centered around family, and this was so very special. Of course, with their love of family, their three kiddos and siblings were part of the wedding ceremony, too!

After the ceremony, I enjoyed spending a little more time with the bride, groom, their kiddos, and their family members as we rolled through photos outside of Blessed Sacrament. Even though this was a short wedding day for me, it was so FULL of love. 

Cristine + David… Thank you for asking me to photograph your lovely wedding day! Wishing you so many years of happiness!
