We first met Jess and Kevin in Mexico while documenting and celebrating their friend’s wedding. We all hit it off over fruity drinks by the pool, especially Kyle and Kevin who both have a nerdy infatuation with drones and video equipment (Kevin’s GoPro footage even made a debut in Ashley and Matt’s wedding highlight reel!) Reconnecting with them during their engagement session in Waterloo, IL, was effortless – we were so excited to be a part of their wedding day!
Jess and Kevin had a romantic winter wedding ceremony at Weingarden in Belleville, Illinois surrounded by family and friends, as well as their wedding party entourage. We knew after taking pictures of them in Konarcik Park that their reception would be lit – and it didn’t disappoint. After some very sentimental and laugh-out-loud toasts from their best friends, the dance floor and bar stayed crowded all night. We had so much fun capturing their wedding day and we wish them all the happiness and laughter they can handle!
