Mallory & David | Hamilton’s Banquet Hall Jacksonville, IL Romantic Fall Wedding Photographer

Mallory and David’s wedding day was one of those perfect Fall days where even though there was a cool breeze keeping us chilled, the sun shined brightly through the trees full of color. Fall is Mallory’s favorite time of year and she just knew she had to have her wedding during it. It was the exact feeling that Fall is supposed to be and it made for such a fun day. Plus it was a Friday, which always makes everything so much more exciting because while everyone is a work, we were getting to play!

Mallory’s bridesmaids were so supportive and sweet. All morning they made sure Mallory stayed calm and focused on the excitement of getting to see David for the first time. Mallory’s mom helped her step in to her custom Pronovias gown with the absolute perfect touches of lace and then it was off for first look time!

We gathered the wedding party at MacMurray’s campus and David finally go to see his sweet bride for the first time. Their first look was intimate and sweet followed by photos with their bridal party. Portrait time with Mallory and David was so perfect before the wedding. The leaves were changing on campus and it made for gorgeous portraits. David and Mallory kept each other laughing and enjoying such a special time just the two of them.

After the beautiful ceremony at Our Savior Church we headed out to David’s farm ground for what I knew would be Mallory’s favorite part! She had always told me from the beginning that golden hour was her favorite part of my images, so I just knew we had to get a gorgeous sunset for her and David. Mother nature did not disappoint and not only did we have a gorgeous sunset but we had amazing color on the trees that just made the whole scene absolutely breathtaking. This was by far my most favorite time of the day capturing Mallory and David celebrating being newlyweds!

We then ended the day at Hamilton’s 110 N East for Mallory and David’s gorgeous reception. It was the essence of Fall with warm candlelight and beautiful gold accents. Mallory and David danced the entire night with their adorable nieces and nephews and all of their friends and family!

Mallory is a city girl who loves to dress up and David is her simple, care-free farmer. They are definitely opposites which is what makes them so perfect together! As the priest spoke about them in their ceremony, he mentioned this exact fact and talked about how fate brought them together as opposites really do attract. I am so excited to share their big day with you through images! Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Ginder, I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
