Chelsea & Dale | Pear Tree Estate Champaign, IL Elegant Blush & Gold Summer Wedding Photographer

Chelsea and Dale planned one heck of a wedding and looked absolutely flawless throughout it all! These two have huge personalities and make everyone around them feel so welcomed, I just knew their big day was going to be so much fun! They chose the beautiful Pear Tree Estates which has so many incredible backdrops for photos. I loved capturing Chelsea in the morning with her bridesmaids, getting ready and hanging out. Dale and the guys got ready separately and Dale’s best man, AKA his adorable son Benton, helped him put on all his final touches, including a gold jacket! Chelsea’s mom helped her get dressed in her beautiful, gold sparkled ball gown. Chelsea was absolutely stunning and her bridal look was complete with a long veil and gold sparkly Kate Spade shoes. She shared an emotional first look with her dad before heading out to officially marry Dale!

Dale was beaming from ear to ear when Chelsea’s dad walked her down the aisle to him. Chelsea’s stepdad married them in a beautiful ceremony and blessed their marriage before announcing them for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson! They never stopped smiling as they cam back down the aisle.

We had pretty great weather for August and were able to capture all of their portraits outside on the Pear Tree grounds. They had a huge bridal party but everyone was so sweet and happy to just be there celebrating Chelsea and Dale! After photos, Chelsea and Dale made a grand entrance into their reception and began such a fun night of dancing, drinks and some seriously amazing food!

We couldn’t let the day end without some gorgeous golden hour shots at Pear Tree. This venue gets some of the best sunsets and I absolutely loved capturing Chelsea and Dale one last time before the sun set. Everything about Chelsea and Dale’s wedding was absolutely beautiful and I cannot wait to share more of their perfect day. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson, I wish you and Benton so many years of love and happiness!
