Illinois often gets a bad rap. We don’t have an ocean, any mountain ranges or a vast desertscape. However, we DO have a hidden gem up north at Chestnut Mountain Resort in Galena. Natalie and Jimmy are from Chicago, but wanted to get away with their closest friends and family to say their I Dos, and that’s exactly what they did.

I’m not sure there’s two souls who are a better match than these two. Words don’t describe how deeply they care for one another, so you’ll just have to scroll through these images to get a glimpse!

I might’ve cried a record amount of times during this wedding. From the first look to the ceremony to the father/daughter dance to the maid of honor speech.. tears were not in short supply. The love between these families was so beautiful, and every one of them were nothing but completely kind and generous the entire day. They continually asked how they could better serve Eric and I while we were the ones there to serve THEM! It was such an honor to be a part of this gorgeous June wedding day.

Congrats, Natalie + Jimmy! And thank you for allowing us to be a part of your beautiful wedding day. <3
