KEEGAN + EMILY | WEDDING AT THEIR PRIVATE FARM
A RUSTIC BARN WEDDING IN SHABBONA, IL | JUNE 29, 2013
This day started off with one of the worst downpours I've ever seen in my life. Arriving on scene, I could only go about 10 mph because my windshield was getting so blasted I was a total blind driver. Perfect for an outdoor wedding. ha. They were forced to have the ceremony in the barn, where the reception was planned, and thank the almighty, it stopped raining right before she walked down the aisle. Whatever was planned, it turned out absolutely + perfectly beautiful. Afterwards, we moseyed on over to the park to shoot some group shots, but the path --our only way in-- sprouted a mini-lake about 8 inches deep. BUT, rather than abort mission, the groom's brothers formulated the most ingenious + crafty solution that truly rescued the expedition + saved the day. They just yanked out the cement parking blocks (and rebar) and used them as a bridge. Only farm kids.
Keegan + Emily are close to my heart. Keegan is amazing. his dry humor always makes me crack up. Emily is a extremely strong woman who I look up to, and I admire for what she does + how she does it. I have so much love for both of them. And... These two threw the best party I've ever been to. It finally closed with them being lifted up on the crowd's shoulders at 1:00 in the morning belting Garth Brooks. Best. Ever.
Congratulations ya'll. Love. love. love.
