SIUE Gardens Destination Wedding in Illinois

Kameron & Anna are the sweetest couple you’ll ever meet – they’ve been dating for seven years – which means they started dating early in Junior High. Anna had us all laughing so hard in the morning telling stories – and when I met Kameron for the first look *yes, that’s right… I didn’t meet him till the wedding day!*  I could tell that their personalities complimented each other perfectly. Kameron is thoughtful and quiet. Anna is funny and so full of joy.

Saturday ended up being quite warm – but they were troopers and were up for anything! After a first look in the same spot as their proposal, we headed over to the SIUE gardens and took more couples pictures, party photos, and family formals. Their families get along so well that it was almost hard to tell whom was siblings with whom.

Their whole day was so focused on Jesus – it was beautiful! I would walk around a corner and see all of Anna’s girls praying for them. Then, right before the ceremony, Kam and Anna prayed with their pastors.

During the ceremony, Kameron’s brothers and Anna’s sister had us all laughing with their speeches. My favorite part of the reception was the money jars. The idea was that whoever had more money in their jar got cake on the face – and boy did Kameron get cake on his face! Everyone said Anna was too pretty to get caked, and they were right! Anyways – I’ll let you see that for yourself. Enjoy!
