It’s been a pleasure in getting two know some special love birds very dear to me these past couple of months. Shawn two-stepped into Laura’s life a few years ago at a country dance club in town. Their love blossomed after running into each-other and being reunited once again in college. All of Shawn + Laura’s friends and family gathered at Willoughby Heritage Farm in Collinsville, Illinois to share their special day with them. Fate was on their side, even after the St. Louis area was hit with either extreme heat or the next great flood, it was a beautiful summer day with a light breeze. The venue was filled to the brim with joy, happiness, and details like no other. Like with any big day, there will always be those memorable moments that you look back and smile on. I mean what other wedding has goats, sheep, and the case of the missing wedding ring? (Thanks Chris U. for finding it again!) Congratulations to Shawn + Laura for their fabulous and wild rustic wedding day!
The day was a joy to be a part of and I owe a debt of gratitude to the amazing team who brought it all to life… Collinsville Wedding Photography
