Interview with a Bride: Melissa and Brandon

I wanted to share this beautiful low lit evening wedding we photographed in April at The Weingarten in Belleville, IL.  The Weingarten offers a beautiful landscape complete with a pond, lovely wooded areas, and a huge brick silo. Inside the venue offers a private area for guests to dance, drink, and have fun. To light their wedding they used twinkle lights, candles, and lanterns. I loved how Melissa and Brandon styled their enchanted wedding with some beautiful elements of nature. The moss and tree branches set the stage for this low lit wedding and reception. Melissa was an amazing bride who was laid back, extremely artistic, and had a smile that melted everyones heart. Brandon buzzed the entire day, like a kid waiting to open presents on Christmas morning. Their love for each other could be felt by everyone in attendance! I hope you enjoy some of my favorite shots from their wedding <3 

Big thanks to the Weingarten and my wonderful second photographer Trisha Grinestead for helping create these once in a lifetime images for this couple.
