Alana + Nick

I want to preface this blog post with a little warning -- I had a really tough time narrowing down the photos to post and still ended up with 57 that I wanted to share here, which is around 20 more than I normally select. Please be patient as the blog loads. Thank you!

Now that my little warning is out of the way, I am so excited to share Alana and Nick's wedding images with you! These two were such a joy to work with and didn't let anything get them down -- not even the downpour on their outdoor ceremony!

I guess I should give you all another warning. This blog post is a little heavy on the flowers and details because I loved them all! Laura's Flower Shoppe in Lake Villa, Illinois did a fabulous job with the flowers.

Alana, you are a beautiful bride.

Hi, girls!

I told you their flowers were amazing!

Check out those lashes. Hot mama! Alana purchased her hair piece from Gilded Shadows on Etsy.

Did I mention that I have an obsession with yellow and grey? I loved their invitations by InvitingMoments on Etsy.

Grey suits are my favorite.

All the guys in their fun ties.

Details, details. This lovely set up greeted guests as they entered the ceremony area.

The vintage finds belong to Alana's mom and aunt. I tried to steal that yellow and grey quilt but Alana's aunt caught me. (Ok, I didn't really try to steal it...but I did offer to take it off their hands!)

This was a surprise to me! I about died when I saw this!!! Alana purchased all the banners from Expressions In Design on Etsy. (I think Alana is an Etsy addict like I am.)

There was amazing light during the ceremony...and then it started pouring rain! Antioch Golf Club in Antioch, Illinois was a beautiful venue.

Their officiant, Julie Adriansen, did a wonderful job with the ceremony.

The new Mr. & Mrs.!

After the ceremony, we headed out on the golf carts for some fun photos. I always love the way it looks outside after it rains.

We found an old wooden bridge and did most of the photos there. The light was perfect!

Alana requested this photo. I adore it.

Ken's view:

My view:

This was Nick's idea. Haha!!!

They chose this photo for their thank you cards. We really enjoy seeing our photos on thank you cards!

This group was so much fun, especially when we were chasing each other and getting lost throughout the golf course!

Alana made the cute card box.

Nick told me that he helped distress the doors for this project. It's the perfect sweet buffet.

So many amazing details, and I'm not even including all of them.

Thank you, Lovin Oven Cakery in Round Lake Beach, for these delicious cupcakes! Cupcakes are my weakness for sure.

Alana made the table numbers and decor on each table. She even collected vintage milk glass vases for the centerpieces.

Nicole, the Matron of Honor, gave a wonderful speech.

Dominic, the Best Man, made everyone laugh with his speech.

First dance:

Get it, girl!

Alana and Nick, it was truly a pleasure capturing your wedding day. It was amazing in every way!


  1. Yay!!! Thank you so much Lindsay! These are truly special and you caught all the happiness on our day! You and Ken were SO great to work with!

  2. This is such a beautiful wedding! Gorgeous through and through! I love the yellow accents, sweet details, and how amazing Alana looks!
