Sarah + Ted | Allerton Park + Mansion wedding | Monticello, IL


What a lovely wedding Sarah + Ted and their families planned! The gray and pink color scheme played out beautifully in the suits, bridesmaid dresses and bouquets. I don't think I've photographed that color combination too much, and I was very excited to put together their wedding party photo using those elements. The day came together fairly seamlessly (shout out to DJ Panda for his emergency DJ'ing!) and we came away with some beautiful images of a fun and memorable wedding day. Congrats, Sarah + Ted, and thanks for letting me drag you outside a few extra times with the mosquitoes (I still have several bug bites to prove it!!). Leave a comment below for Sarah + Ted, and after 50 comments, they will receive a complimentary 11x14" mounted print of their choice. bride getting ready

Christie + Tim | Allerton Monticello wedding photographer

Christie + Tim were married on a Sunday afternoon in May just behind the Allerton Mansion near Monticello. They were surrounded by a small group of close family and friends. Following their brief ceremony, we wandered all around the University of Illinois' Allerton property and took photos and enjoyed the gorgeous day and blue skies.Allerton Mansion wedding ceremony koi pond

Brianna & Ian : Allerton couple session

Brianna & Ian were married last summer at the courthouse, but they never really had any formal photos taken either for the wedding or their engagement. They actually moved overseas last week for the military, so Ian's parents wanted some photos of the two of them together before they left. We met up at Allerton where there was a lovely covering of snow on the ground, and even though it was chilly, I think the session turned out beautifully!
