Sarah + Kevin | University of Illinois Arboretum wedding

Sarah+Kevin | University of Illinois Arboretum weddingSarah + Kevin were married on October 9 at the University of Illinois Arboretum followed by their reception at Kennedy's at Stone Creek in Urbana. It was an unseasonably warm day, but we made the most of it and took as many photos as possible outside near the reception site and again outside on the golf course. I kept an eye on the clock so we wouldn't miss sunset! Sarah+Kevin | University of Illinois Arboretum wedding You may remember these two from their snowy engagement session last February. It's been one of my most popular ones to date! This time though, instead of about 25 degrees, it was near 85 degrees!
