Whitney and Adam's Wedding at the Seasons Event Center | Southern Illinois Wedding Photographer

When I first asked Whitney how she envisioned their wedding, she mentioned “a long overdue party in our honor.” They wanted a relaxed and fun day from start to finish, and that’s exactly what they got! Adam and Whitney have been together for what seems like forever (probably because it has been forever!), and I think everyone around them would agree that their love was very deserving of this amazing day. So keep scrolling for a look into their fun, relaxed, long-overdue, perfect wedding day!

The doors at the Seasons Event Center give me life. I was actually a bride here in 2017—a pre-door bride. ha! So, you better believe these will be featured in every wedding that I photograph here. ;)

And, isn’t sweet Remi just perfect!? Whitney and Adam’s pups hung out the entire morning of the wedding, were included in the first look, stuck around for a few more photos, and then got tucked back in at home before the ceremony.

Their ceremony was held at the new site! Such a gorgeous fall backdrop!

After the ceremony, we were able to head straight into the reception. Guests loved that, because the meal here is not something you want to wait long for. Have you had their salad? It’s like candy salad. I always joke with Jon (the coordinator and chef) that his receptions are the only ones I eat my vegetables at. haha!

I also snuck the two of them out for a few additional portraits at sunset. I love this time with all of my couples. Everything is so relaxed, and the happiness is just overflowing.
