We traveled south for Abbie and Zack’s wedding day and it was truly such a special day full of so much love and happiness. Abbie got ready in her childhood home surrounded by all of the women who love her so much and Zack got ready up the street at a close family friend’s house. Abbie’s mom helped her put on her simple, but elegant dress and after all of her final details were in place she made the most beautiful, timeless bride! We captured some beautiful photos with her bridesmaids while Zack got to spend some time with his groomsmen before the ceremony. They met in the middle of the two houses, in the quaint town of Oakawville, IL in a little brick chapel where Abbie grew up. Abbie’s late father would have been so proud of her as her little brother, Bennett met her at the door to walk her down the aisle to Zack. It was such a sweet moment as Bennett gave her away with her mom and Zack’s parents standing right by them both. I truly could feel so much love surrounding them as they vowed to love and care for each other and officially became husband and wife!
After the ceremony the bridal party loaded up on the party bus and we set off for Centralia, IL and the gorgeous Castle Ridge venue on Raccoon Lake. The property was a former golf course, so we had the perfect backdrop for portrait time! Abbie and Zack’s bridal party helped celebrate the newlyweds in a big way by keeping them laughing and smiling through all of their photos. Then they got some quiet time with just the two of them. Abbie and Zack were so easy to photograph and I just had so much fun photographing them together! We were blessed with the most perfect golden hour sun over the lake to end the perfect day and turned into a gorgeous night of celebration.
Castle Ridge venue was breathtakingly beautiful. Every little detail was planned out perfect and the room was filled with candlelight, flowers and little touches of boho vibes! Abbie and Zack were introduced into their reception with shots in hand and they kicked off the festivities with an adorable choreographed first dance. Zack twirled his sweet bride around the dance floor still with huge smiles on their faces! They both shared sweet dances with their moms, listened to perfectly emotional and hilarious speeches from some very special people and ate some delicious food! From the minute the DJ opened the dance floor, Abbie and Zack’s guests immediately brought the party and filled the room with so much celebration for their first night as Mr. and Mrs. Feiber! We could not be happier for these newlyweds, their entire day was so special and we loved being a part of it! Congratulations you two!
