Eric + Kristen | wedding / by meredith

This is my first wedding post of 2014.. & what a great way to start!

I couldn't put my camera down the entire day as I watched the love these two shared for one another. It was an extremely cold day, which made a great excuse for these two to get all close and snuggly for their outdoor photo session--just what I was hoping for. I love getting to work in new environments, and their wedding was nothing short of spectacular. The wedding day took place at the Allerton Mansion in Monticello, Illinois. If you haven't visited the place, you should! It's stunning; the perfect compliment to such a beautiful couple. Eric and Kristen are two of the kindest people I have known, and I feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to photograph their wedding.
