Tommy and Kayla's Wedding at The Pour Vineyard | Southern Illinois Wedding Photographer

Kayla and Tommy have been together for years, and very few people would have a conversation saying one name and not the other. You see, there is no Kayla without Tommy, and no Tommy without Kayla. In our world they have always been one, and this beautiful day just made it official.

Moments with Dad get us every time. Kayla and her dad shared a first look before heading down the aisle.

The ring bearer petaled his tractor down the aisle and right into our hearts. He was so proud. It was the CUTEST!

After the ceremony, the wedding party gathered on The Pour Vineyard’s gorgeous property for photos. The rustic setting was PERFECT for the style of Tommy and Kayla’s day.

With the dance floor bumpin’, we snuck into the vineyard for additional bride and groom portraits at sunset. Always worth it!
