The rain and clouds went away moments before the Birkman ceremony started. Elayna and Bryan locked a wine box during their ceremony. At their one year anniversary, they will open the box, enjoy the bottle of wine and read the love notes they wrote to each other. Joyous Beginnings by Jessica officiated the Birkman wedding, and did an amazing job. She told their love story and made it 100% personal. Elayna and Bryan were giggling the whole time.
We were at the Timber Pointe Golf Club in Poplar Grove, Illinois, and got to ride golf carts to Hole 8 to take some formal portraits! The leaves were just starting to change, the sun made an appearance, and we found the magic!
Elayna and Bryan love to be goofy, and they got their whole bridal party to go along with the silly shenanigans. From butt grabs to jumping to dinosaurs...we did it all.
Royal Events, Inc. was the wedding planner for the Birkman wedding. Daisy, the owner, did a wonderful job coordinating the day and making sure it ran smoothly for the bride and groom. The Birkman's enjoyed a buffet style dinner in their outdoor tent reception area, followed by dancing and dessert at the end of the night.
