Rachel + Ethan | Dreamy Saint Sharbel Wedding | Illinois Wedding Photographer
PSA: this wedding will give you allllllll the design inspiration, including a tinted wedding dress, mismatched bridesmaid dresses, and a perfect fall color palette. I'm obsessing over this gallery so so much.
I've known Rachel for years and she's one of the kindest, most stylish, Target-loving beauties I've ever met. She was another one of my very first models when I started photography so many years ago, so I obviously jumped out of my shoes when she asked if I would be her wedding photographer. Like... YES girl! I literally died and came back to life when I saw her dress (the most amazing grey BHLDN gown), and couldn't shut up about the fact that she went with mismatched bridesmaids dresses of all different styles and colors (my absolute freakin' fav). Like, this wedding is goals and you'll totally agree with me.
Rach and Ethan have been my weather-plagued couple since day one. We had to reschedule their engagement session several times due to snow, rain, and just overall sucky weather. When Rachel found out she was pregnant with Elsie they made the decision to postpone their wedding from spring 2018 to fall 2018, which ended up being the best decision ever because their spring wedding date ended up being the freak snowstorm that dropped a foot of snow, whiteouts, and basically totally un-driveable conditions.
So when we saw the forecast for their fall wedding date, we weren't surprised to find that they were calling for unnatural freezing temperatures and rain. Fortunately, we ended up with partly sunny skies (still freezing, but we can't complain) and got to spend most of our day outdoors in the most perfect light. Seriously, the most perfect! Faith in Mother Nature: restored.
I'm so stoked to share my favorites with you!
