Wedding in Aurora, Illinois – Shawn and Sarina

Sometimes a wedding is extra special in terms of family connections! Such was the case with Shawn and Sarina’s wedding in Aurora, Illinois. Shawn is Heather’s brother; Sarina our new sister-in-law, and we were thrilled to be their wedding photographers!

And to add to the meaning of the day, Shawn and Sarina asked our girls to be their flower girls; a gig accepted with enthusiasm and carried out with the utmost cuteness!

Their day was everything that we love in a wedding: laughter, tears, joy, and pure celebration with family and friends. And our goal, as always, was to capture as much of that emotion as possible with as much authenticity as we are able!

The ceremony was held at the beautiful Blackberry Farms and the reception was held at the Open Range Southwest Grill at the Bliss Creek Golf Club. We were thankful for gorgeous weather and beautiful light throughout the day, and great vendors to work with! Traveling to photograph weddings has always provided a fresh burst of inspiration with new sights and locations at our disposal.

As you will see, we had plenty of time for bride and groom photos because Shawn and Sarina opted for a sweet and intimate first look before the ceremony. As a result, we didn’t have to rush, we were able to utilize the gorgeous light, and these two had some really beautiful moments together before (and after) becoming husband and wife!

Enjoy a few of our favorite images from this very special day!
