Robert & Charlene

Robert and Charlene had such a gorgeous fall day for their wedding! I think it warmed up to around 50 degrees which is quite lovely for a November day in Central Illinois. We went to Robert’s brother’s property to do portraits, and the colorful tree-lined driveway was stunning! I was so grateful for such a beautiful location for portraits. On the way to the church we stopped by another property to grab a few photos with the willow tree, which was another beautiful setting in Arcola, IL! During the reception we were able to leave for just a few minutes to capture some “just married” portraits with the beautiful sunset glow!

I’d like to rave a little about these beautiful, classy bouquets! I just never get tired of real flowers, and the soft pink roses were so beautiful against Charlene’s white dress and the bridesmaids’ navy dresses. Also, the cake was perfection and the florals adorned it beautifully!

Robert and Charlene have known each other for many years, and it was so special to see their happiness and love for each other overflowing as they chose to spend the rest of their lives together! I really appreciated their love and respect for each other, and for those who were serving them on their special day!

My prayer for you Robert and Charlene is that you can continue to bless your friends around you as a couple, and continue to reach out to those around you! You will go far together as a couple, and I’m excited with you for this new season of your lives! Congratulations!
