Shannon + Jordan : Allerton Mansion wedding : Monticello

What a beautiful wedding! I've photographed several weddings and many portraits on the Allerton Park grounds in the past, but this was my first experience with a ceremony and reception both in the mansion. It is such a gorgeous venue, and I was so happy to get to work with Shannon's family again! Back in 2010, I did her sister Haley's wedding to George. :) I also got my first request from Shannon + Jordan's wedding party to do the now-famous viral dinosaur photo. I hope they enjoy my take on it! Also, thanks to my awesome assistant photographer, Melanie, for some of the images below! Leave a comment below for Shannon + Jordan, and after 50 comments, they will receive a complimentary 10x15" mounted print of their choice!

The guys had a foam sword fight, which was pretty fun, and below that you'll see Shannon kissing a frog that Jordan caught. I've always been told you have a kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince??? :)
