Ali & Luke | Erin’s Pavilion Springfield, IL Garden Party Wedding Photographer

Ali and Luke are such a sweet couple. I have really enjoyed working with them over the last year. Ali has worked so hard planning her big day and I have been so excited to see it all come together! From the moment I arrived at her bridal suite, I felt right at home with her bridesmaids and family. All of her girls were excited to celebrate their sweet friends Ali and Luke!

Ali’s dress was to die for. She wore a simple, soft tulle lace dress with an open back complimented by a cathedral length veil–which of course was perfect for photos! Her bridesmaids had simple neutral dresses while her maid and matron of honor for soft floral dress. They were the perfect touch to Ali’s garden theme. Ali shared a sweet and tearful first look with her dad before heading out to meet Luke.

Ali and Luke both seemed very nervous before seeing each other, but once they did it felt like all of the worries melted away. Since a crazy rainstorm came through the night before, the grounds at Erin’s Pavilion were completely flooded, so we had to go to plan B for photo locations. Ali and Luke kept calm with all of the crazy flooding and we spent the rest of the time before the ceremony traveling around with the bridal party taking photos.

Ali’s dad walked her down the aisle to an anxious Luke in the perfect garden ceremony on Erin’s Pavilion’s back patio. The water went down enough to allow their guests to overlook the gorgeous pond. I loved Ali’s beautiful geometric arbor they designed to get married under. Her brother was their officiant and married the newlyweds before all of their friends and family. It was the perfect summer day for an outdoor ceremony!

Afterwards, their guests entered into the reception and enjoyed a cocktail hour before welcoming the bride and groom with a grand entrance. Ali and Luke threw an awesome party and their guests took over the dancefloor all night. It was such a perfect day for these two lovebirds and I am honored to have gotten to capture it! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Moravec!
