Our second to last wedding of 2016, can this really be here already? I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by! What a perfect day for a wedding too. Partly cloudy, mid-60s, I know I say this so many times, but you couldn’t ask for a better day for a wedding. The ceremony took place at St. James Lutheran Church in Vandalia. This was our second wedding there this year, it’s always great going back to a church we’ve been to. The reception took place at Tuscan Hills Winery in Effingham, IL. This was also the location we would do outdoor pictures of Alex and Blake.
Fall is such a great time of year for pictures not only because of the colors but because it’s darker earlier so we are able to get those evening pictures before dinner. However, one drawback to fall is that it’s darker earlier! This makes getting these pictures a little more stressful because any little hiccup that last 10 minutes or so can easily push us into post-sunset! Fortunately, there weren’t any issues with Alex and Blake’s wedding, we had plenty of time to get pictures of the two of them, plus their wedding party and even some family pictures all outside! Overall, it was a fantastic day and they were a great couple! We loved having the opportunity to work with them and we are so excited with the way their images turned out!
