Mr. + Mrs. Schwartz – Sugar Spring Ranch – Columbia, IL – November 25, 2023

The Schwartz Sugar Spring Ranch wedding was not only an elegant rustic wedding that was a joy to be captured, but also one of the most romantic and fun! Liz and Joe not only made me so welcomed but also made me feel like family.  From Liz’s emotional first look with her dad, romantic ceremony overlooking the breath-taking lake, enchanting smell from the florals all around done by Liz herself, and sweet moments during couple’s portraits. Liz looked like a princess in her stunning dress from Clarice’s Bridal . Her dress was an off-shoulder dress with lace going to the floor length. It is as stunning as it sounds.

Liz had a first look with her father. The special moment of a first look was beyond touching. Seeing the love in her father’s eyes as he was preparing to hand off his daughter to her best friend. There is nothing more important than a father’s daughter to be happy and loved. Liz’s dad showed all these emotions and more.  Liz & Joe exchanged vows outside overlooking beautiful trees and a lover’s lane. With the weather cold nothing stopped the love that they both expressed to one another.

Liz & Joe’s reception was delightful smelling with a three-tiered cake elegantly covered in buttercream and florals made by Kathy Daniels from Yummy Bakery. The colors on this cake were so vibrant and was elegantly done. The cake was not only pretty but it was also pretty “Yummy”.

It was truly a joy to photograph Liz & Joe’s wedding. I will always remember the couples I meet who are not only clients but who also become friends. I am so excited to see your next adventures!

Cheers to Many years together as the new Mr. & Mrs. Schwartz.
