Madison & Jake | The Rail Golf Course Springfield, IL Summer Wedding Photographer

I have been lookin forward to Madison and Jake’s wedding for awhile now. It ended up being a warmer July day, but a nice breeze helped keep it mild! Madison has to be one of the most laid back brides I ever had. She and Jake were so calm and just enjoyed every part of their special day! Madison looked absolutely stunning getting ready and finally it was time to have her first looks. First, with her dad, definitely the most emotional person all day. He was so happy to see her and share this special moment. Then, he drove her up the lane from Jake’s parents house to Madison and Jake’s house to meet Jake for their first look. Jake seemed a little nervous, but was so happy when he finally got to see Madison. We then took the time to grab some photos of them right in their front yard. It was so special to them. We added their bridal party for some photos and then they all hopped on a party bus to head to the Rail Golf Course for their ceremony and reception. 

Their ceremony was so beautiful, performed by Jake’s aunt who made it so special to them by reading answers to some questions she asked Jake and Madison about each other. There were a few tears as they exchanged vows and rings, but so much happiness as they shared their first kiss and were finally announced at Mr. and Mrs. Litterly! They never stopped smiling all the way down the aisle! 

They had a wonderful cocktail hour and then entered into their reception. Madison and her mom worked so hard to create such a gorgeous reception space full of beautiful flowers. They threw a huge party with all of their friends and family there to celebrate them! It was truly such an amazing day and I could not be happier for Madison and Jake. I am so happy to have been a part of it and even more excited to share more photos here! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Litterly!
