A Beautiful Intimate Outdoor Wedding

Happy Friday!!!!!  We cannot believe this week is already over!  Fall is flying by and we have been loving all the fun fall sessions and weddings we’ve been doing.  I know it’s super cliche talking about fall colors and changing leaves and the beautiful weather that the fall (usually) brings, but I still love it.  Anytime I can go outside in a hoodie, jeans and boots and be comfortable is a great time in my book which means I pretty much adore fall over any other season.

To start off your Halloween weekend right, we’ve got the sweetest little wedding to show you!  Adam and Angela got married in the woods on their property the first weekend of October.  The only people that witnessed the day were their officiant, Angela’s daughter and Jeff and I.  While we don’t do them very often, we love photographing small weddings where the focus is all on the love, the ceremony of the day, and the joy that these two share bringing their two lives together.

When we first met to talk about the wedding, Adam and Angela wanted to get married right around sunset which meant we knew we’d have to do the photos before their ceremony.  They shared a sweet first look and then we spent a couple of hours traveling around their extensive property and the nearby countryside finding great little spots for photos and created some of our favorite images to date!

You would not believe the trek we had to get to this place.  This entire area belongs to a friend of Adam’s and they allowed us to invade it for a few minutes to take advantage of the amazing rock formations there.  Intimate Outdoor Wedding Photos, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Intimate Outdoor Wedding Photos, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Intimate Outdoor Wedding Photos, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Intimate Outdoor Wedding Photos, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Intimate Outdoor Wedding Photos, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography

Then it was time for the ceremony!  Their officiant, Pastor Bill, is a friend of ours and it was so fun to see him as he joined these two as husband and wife! Intimate Outdoor Wedding Photos, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Intimate Outdoor Wedding Photos, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Intimate Outdoor Wedding Photos, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Intimate Outdoor Wedding Photos, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography
