du quoin wedding | kristin & chad

A few weeks ago, we drove down to DuQuoin, Illinois for Kristin & Chad’s wedding.  DuQuoin is a small town approximately 300 miles south of Chicago.  We’ve never been there and were very excited to see what southern Illinois was like.  Du Quoin is a small quiet town with no stop lights, lots of farmland all around, and very, very nice people.  We felt so welcomed and everyone just seemed  to have endless smiles everywhere we turned.  We’ve actually never met Kristin & Chad until their wedding day.  Through many emails and phone conversations, we got to know each other well.  When we finally met, it was as if we never skipped a beat.  Kristin LOVES photography and I can tell how important photography was for her wedding.  We were so flattered when she chose us and trusted us on their wedding day.

Their love story began when their paths crossed on a cruise in 2006.  A few years later, Chad fittingly proposed to Kristin on a Mediterranean Cruise shortly after leaving Rome, Italy.  =D

It was a beautiful day in southern Illinois on their wedding day!  Blue skies, cool breeze…absolutely perfect for an outdoor wedding reception at Chad’s parents’ house. These two were definitely blessed with beautiful weather.  Congratulations Kristin & Chad!  Lots of hugs and kisses to you both and to your families!  BTW, did you see Ellie Mae & Diesel?  They’re Kristin & Chad’s bulldogs!  Check out their exclusive blog post HERE! Aside from the love for their horses, Kristin & Chad love their English bulldogs too!

xoxo Michele & Andy

Loved her cowboy boots!

Not a frosted glass, but water…

These two were excellent riders!
