Samantha + Jacob | Tuscola + Champaign iHotel wedding

The weather was finally gorgeous again on Saturday, July 28, and after nearly 2 months of photographing weddings through heat advisory, it was a welcome "break." Of course, I use the term "break" very, very loosely. :) Sam + Jacob were great sports throughout the day, and Sam told me many times throughout the course of all the wedding festivities that I could do with them whatever I wanted for photos, and to pull them aside any time I thought the light or atmosphere was good. This also included them missing the anniversary dance. Oops! (And sorry to Ryan for that one!) Their wedding party was SO fun, wild, and rambunctious. I could tell you many, many funny stories, and these blog photos had to be edited down some from what all I originally wanted to show. Ha! Leave a comment below for Sam + Jacob, and after 50 comments, they will receive a complimentary 10x15" mounted print of their choice!
