Guys. My (Jen) little sister got married.
It was definitely an all new experience to be working a wedding while also being the Maid of Honor! Thankfully, Jesse's awesome wife, Alix, was able to help us out and second shoot during the wedding! Since I was in the wedding there's even a few photos of me in this post, which is rare (I'm TERRIBLE in front of the camera), but by some miracle I'm not making faces in all of them for once!
Obviously I'm biased about how beautiful the wedding was, since it was my sister's, but honestly it was a beautiful day with a gorgeous venue. My sister used to work at the Wildlife Prairie Park in Peoria, and when it came time to plan her wedding she knew it was the perfect place!
Jessica & Shawn planned a wedding that was truly a reflection of them as a couple. Their first look included their puppy, Xena, they handmade their centerpieces and decor, they included Shawn's dad's Harley in photos, AND they had an owl at the cocktail hour. If you knew these two in real life you'd know it was a perfect example of them and their love for each other.
