A Magical Intimate Wedding at Inn at Irish Hollow

On a gorgeous day full of sunshine at the beautiful Irish Hollow Bed and Breakfast property, Matt and Stacy sealed their love with vows they wrote for each other.  The only guests were Jeff and I as their photographers, their officiant Jess, and Hanna from Irish Hollow who helped us all by coordinating the day.  It was an intimate affair full of the most genuine smiles, the purest of tears, and the most heartfelt sentiments two souls could exchange.  We felt so lucky to be part of it!

We began the afternoon by taking a few moments with Stacy before she met Matt for their ceremony.Bride, Strapless Dress, Pink Flowers, Garden Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, UnPosed Photography, Galena IL, Galena WeddingBride, Strapless Dress, Pink Flowers, Garden Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, UnPosed Photography, Galena IL, Galena WeddingThese rings were so unique and pretty.  And we love that they personalized them for each other.  Wedding Bands, Personalized Wedding Bands, White Flowers, Galena IL Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, UnPosed Photography, Galena ILThe thing we adore about weddings at Irish Hollow is that every detail is thought out thoroughly with the couple in mind.  The flower arrangements they made were absolutely STUNNING! Pink Flowers, Wedding Decor, Rustic Wedding Decor, Grotto Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography, Galena IL Wedding Pink Flowers, Wedding Decor, Rustic Wedding Decor, Grotto Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography, Galena IL Wedding When it was time for the ceremony, Matt awaited his bride with his breath held, trying to hold back the tears.  And when their eyes met they beamed at each other from ear to ear!  Intimate Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, Romantic Ceremony, Elopement Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Galena IL Wedding Photography, UnPosed Photography Intimate Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, Romantic Ceremony, Elopement Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Galena IL Wedding Photography, UnPosed Photography Intimate Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, Romantic Ceremony, Elopement Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Galena IL Wedding Photography, UnPosed Photography Intimate Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, Romantic Ceremony, Elopement Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Galena IL Wedding Photography, UnPosed PhotographyIntimate Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, Romantic Ceremony, Elopement Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Galena IL Wedding Photography, UnPosed Photography Intimate Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, Romantic Ceremony, Elopement Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Galena IL Wedding Photography, UnPosed Photography Intimate Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, Romantic Ceremony, Elopement Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Galena IL Wedding Photography, UnPosed Photography Intimate Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, Romantic Ceremony, Elopement Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Galena IL Wedding Photography, UnPosed Photography Intimate Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, Romantic Ceremony, Elopement Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Galena IL Wedding Photography, UnPosed Photography Inn at Irish Hollow Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Elopement, Inn at Irish Hollow, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography After the ceremony we spent time walking around the property taking photos of Matt and Stacy as they enjoyed their first moments as husband and wife.  Inn at Irish Hollow Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Elopement, Inn at Irish Hollow, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Inn at Irish Hollow Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Elopement, Inn at Irish Hollow, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Inn at Irish Hollow Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Elopement, Inn at Irish Hollow, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Pink Flowers, Inn at Irish Hollow Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Elopement, Inn at Irish Hollow, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Pink Flowers, Couples Photos, Inn at Irish Hollow Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Elopement, Inn at Irish Hollow, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Inn at Irish Hollow Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Elopement, Inn at Irish Hollow, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Inn at Irish Hollow Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Elopement, Inn at Irish Hollow, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography The most special part of an already truly magical day was this old train tunnel that the owners and staff of Irish Hollow had completely transformed into an intimate dining space for two.  Stacy and Matt had no idea this was happening so while I took them for a few more photos, Jeff got some detail shots of the tunnel for them.  Intimate Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography Intimate Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow Wedding, Galena IL Wedding, Inn at Irish Hollow, Galena IL, UnPosed Photography As I was traveling with Stacy and Matt to the tunnel, I saw this wide open field with a beautiful blue sky and perfectly puffy clouds so we had to take a quick stop to get a shot with them.  I love these!!!
