Dana + Leland | Weekday wedding at Allerton Park Brick Wall Garden


I was super excited when Dana contacted me about photographing her small outdoor wedding at Allerton Park on a Thursday afternoon. She told me that she and Leland's 3 kids would be involved and we'd need to corral them a bit to get some portraits of the five of them together. The kids did great, and I love how Dana + Leland incorporated them into the ceremony as well. Following the ceremony, we did a few portraits of the couple, and I grabbed a few detail shots as well. My loyal blog readers will know that I love my detail shots, and Dana was kind of enough to provide me with all the vendors they used as well. :) I wish all five of you the best! Enjoy! couple's children preparing for wedding
