Shelby + Christopher ~ Married ~ Springfield IL Wedding Photography ~ Old State Capital

Shelby & Chris picked the absolute PERFECT day to get married. Not only was the weather perfect for a mid September day, but they chose for their wedding date, Nathan & I’s wedding date! We were celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary on the date they were celebrating their 1st day married! There were some clear signs to me, as to why I fully believe that these two have a marriage that will absolutely last the test of time. 

The way Chris looks, speaks and acts towards Shelby, makes it clear that she is his Queen!

Shelby has a beautiful smile BUT her smile when she is talking to Chris, makes her eyes light up with happiness.

They have a wonderful group of family and friends around them to support and lift up their love.

They also have a group of people that, while of course they celebrated this day with them, they also made sure to note that, the wedding day is probably the easiest day of marriage. It is the days and years that follow that will take the work. That there will be hard days. That for better or for worse, because there will be worse days. That for richer or for poorer, because money troubles will happen. That in sickness and in health, because somewhere along the way, they will have to deal with sickness. That there will be days that arise for them, that on this day, they can’t even imagine. But they will come and their love will persevere. 

Shelby was STUNNING!


FUN FACT: Shelby & Chris were the VERY FIRST ceremony to be held on the Old State Capital Plaza!

Chris nicely walked his mother down the aisle, then came back, to do his own…..special procession 🙂 

This was just a perfect day & I am so blessed that they chose to include me in it.  These other vendors were part of making their day spectacular!
