Adriana & Nico | Springfield, IL Long Bridge Golf Course Outdoor Spring Wedding Photographer

Adriana and Nico’s wedding day was an absolute dream! Adriana is a local calligrapher and she is so talented, so I have been looking forward to her big day for so long. I just knew she was going to create some really beautiful pieces for her big day! She worked with the also talented Cassandra Dattoli to bring her vision to life and Cass designed her day so perfect! From gorgeous florals to beautiful table scapes to hints of Adriana’s work throughout, not a single detail was missing. I also loved how she added in some touches of her Mexican heritage including some beautiful banners, the yummiest Mexican food and her parent’s blessing the newlyweds with a lasso during their ceremony. It was the perfect day and I was so thankful for be a part of it with my video partner, Lydia Stuemke Films!

Besides the crazy high winds, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding day for Adriana and Nico. The sun was shining and the temps were mild. The girls spent the morning getting pampered and enjoying mimosas while the guys hung out in their room helping Nico keeps his nerves calm! Adriana’s mom helped her step into her gorgeous gown, then add her final touches. Both Adriana and Nico wrote the sweetest letters to each other before heading off to finally meet! Their first look was so adorable. Nico was a littler nervous but I could tell it all melted away the second he saw Adriana. They both took some time to really take it in that after rescheduling their big day, they were FINALLY getting to celebrate their marriage!

We took some photos with their bridal party who was so much fun and so helpful to work with before heading off to Long Bridge to get Adriana and Nico married! Adriana’s dad was so proud to walk her down the aisle to meet Nico. They exchanged some very touching vows and sealed their love with a first kiss as husband and wife! We whisked them off after they came down the aisle for some alone time and some gorgeous newlywed portraits and video!

Adriana finally got to officially write her new last name as a Williams and make her first official sign! They then entered their reception to greet all of their guests and enjoy an evening full of dancing and celebrating! Fun DMC Band brought some amazing energy and really got all of their friends and family up and dancing. It was truly a night full of people who love and support Adriana and Nico. I could not be happier for Mr. and Mrs. Williams and I am so excited to share some images from their big day!
