Mike + Katie | Southern Illinois Country Wedding

Posted in: Uncategorized

When I think of Mike and Katie’s wedding the song “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” comes to mind. If you follow me on Facebook then you know that the combine picture with the bridal party is the wedding I’m referring to. Seriously, I cannot say enough about this wedding and how much fun I had. A couple of weeks ago I took wedding photos for Katie’s cousin, David, so when Saturday came around, I felt right at home with the same people I hung out with two weeks prior. Their family is so kind and loving. Katie’s father and brother were so kind to clean up the tractor and combine for photos as well as hang screws in the barn for detail shots of the girls’ dresses. Not a detail was left out and you’ll see when you scroll through the photos below. I had such a hard time picking favorites this time. You hear me say that a lot but it’s true. I love every wedding and when it’s time to show it off on my blog and Facebook I just want to show every picture. Obviously I cannot do that or else you’d be scrolling through like 700 pictures and it would stall up your internet! LOL

The colors for this wedding were gorgeous and the weather was perfect. A storm kept trying to brew and it did sprinkle a few times but I prayed to God to get me through the afternoon for their portraits. It turns out God answered my prayer and he even gave me a perfect sky for the pictures. I’ve said this before but bright and sunny days just aren’t my favorite for pictures. I’d rather have a stormy sky or a cloudy day ANY day. 
Mike and Katie, thank you so much for letting me be apart of your big day. I love you and your families so much and I’ve had a blast getting to know you all. Your love is contagious!!! I wish you all the best and many years of happiness. Enjoy looking through my favorites from your special day.
Love the colors here!

Awesome rings!

Mike looking so handsome!

Katie, you’re gorgeous!

Love the light here!!!

Mike and Katie decided to do a “first look” to ensure they got a lot of portraits in. Here are their first few moments together. Such a great moment! Tears were flowing.

Look how happy they are!!! LOVE.

Seriously, look at that bouquet! Gorgeous.

A favorite right here!

And these!

Look at the colors!!! UGH! Gorgeous.

They didn’t plan this, but Mike and Katie both wore scents in blue bottles. Cute.

Studs!

One of my favorite bridal party pics of the day.

    So cute Kasey!!! I wanted to do that when we got married but RH said it was the one day he didn't want anything to do with a tractor! You did an amazing job using the tractor & combine in the photos!
