Where to even begin with these two!
Colton & Aly’s wedding day took place this past Saturday at Pear Tree Estate in Champaign. A dream couple, and a dream venue, creates for an unforgettable day. I knew this day was going to be nothing short of amazing as we chatted about details throughout the past year. From Christian louboutin heels to diy decor from their family members, their wedding was straight out of Pinterest.
Aly and I go way back as we cheered competitively together in the year 2014, and I grew up around her house as her neighbor was her cousin who was my best friend growing up! ( just small town things ) I have an early memory of Aly coming over to my house teaching me how to do back handsprings in my front yard. So needless to say, watching her & Coltons wedding day unfold was pretty emotional for so many reasons!
The best part about their day was seeing so many friends and family to help celebrate their love. Aly & Colton are loved by so many and it truly showed. Not to mention, Aly & Colton should get an award for the most easy going couple. As Joe (video) and I came together on a lot of ideas, Aly & Colton were a “whatever you need,” kind of couple and we loved that so much.
It has been such a joy working with these two. Colton & Aly have a love that is undeniable and it shows in these portraits!
