Emilee & Kandice met in high school and Kandice told me as she was getting ready that she knew she wanted to marry Emilee when they were just teenagers (high school sweetheart stories gets me every time). Now that same-sex marriage is legal in Illinois, they didn’t want to wait a moment longer – and who can blame them.
Their setting was at Emilee’s family farmhouse just north of Ottawa, Illinois. They had a perfect casual country wedding including the most beautiful sunset. Emilee did a lot of the details herself and both of their families really helped with the planning to make their day special. Emilee & Kandice wore matching wedding dresses in opposing colors and brought out their casual style by wearing Converse tennis shoes. They even wanted their wedding party to keep comfy so they wore Converse too!
I hope you can agree… they had an absolutely gorgeous day!
