Amanda & Jason Paarlberg || Momence Orthodox Presbyterian Church || Kankakee, IL || Winter Wedding

The Paarlberg Wedding! Remember these two and their engagement session in a chive field last spring? I will never forget that beautiful session. Their winter wedding day was a little far from feeling like a winter day. The temperature was close to 50 degrees and the sun was shining! I don’t think they could have asked for a more beautiful day in December. The entire day ran so smooth, and it was filled with love from their closest family and friends.

I am so glad I got to capture the simple elegance of their traditional wedding. They got married in a cozy church with their pastor, and for their reception everyone had a blast celebrating Amanda and Jason’s love. I adore that you can see the natural happiness and love between these two!

One of my favorite parts of their day was being so close to Manteno and they were wanting to take some pictures under the new string lights downtown. First time taking pictures under them and I would say it was successful and unique to their day :-)
