Mr. & Mrs. Bateman 10/15/2022

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Bateman!

Mr. & Mrs. Bateman tied the Knot on October 15, 2022. The ceremony & Reception was held at Buxton’s Banquet Hall in Beckemeyer, Il.

Groom’s Details & Getting Ready

Michael was such a chill and relaxed groom from the moment I walked into the door to the moment I said Goodbye. His guys were all so happy for him and the love that was going around was definitely a strong one for their best friend.

Girls Getting Ready

Lauren was also such a chill and relaxed bride. Her and her girls were rocking out to some old school jams and having a good time celebrating the day.

Brides Details

Lauren had such beautiful details. I loved her simple white style with pops of purple and pink. A princesses dream!

Dress Zip Up
Lauren and her mom shared a sweet intimate time together while getting into her wedding dress. It was such a sweet moment to witness.

Family Portraits

Michael & Lauren shared the center stage with their close loved ones for some family photos.

Ceremony – Time to say “I Do”

Lauren & Michael exchanged their love for one another outside on the patio and Buxton’s. They wrote their own vows to one another – there was a few laughs through each other’s speeches. But best of all was the amazing flower (man) who graced us all with laughter in the very beginning.

Bridal Party Portraits and Couple Portraits

Lauren & Michael were such a cute couple to photograph. We spent extra time just in capturing images of them and it was worth it.

Reception Details

I loved the rustic feeling of the Batemans wedding decor all night – just the country girl in me, I guess!

First Dance, Parent Dances, Speeches & Cake
I loved watching the connection between Lauren and Michael. It was such a sweet time to watch them laugh and smile at each other like no one else was watching.

Let’s get this party started

The dance floor had lots of fancy footwork from all the guests.
