An Intimate Zoo Wedding

Elopements

There are couples who you meet that just seem to be blessed with good luck. The kind of luck that brings cool, sunny weather to a wedding day that should have been stormy. The kind of luck that brings two people together by chance thru their work.

Megan & Rob are such a couple. With Hurricane Florence hitting the eastern coast just a week before their wedding date, all forecasts were pointing to their wedding day being stormy and dark with the weather pattern making its way to the midwest. However, by a few days before the after effects veered away from its ominous path and we were blessed with gorgeous fall-like weather!

Held at the Scovill Zoo in Decatur, Illinois, their wedding was the epitome of vintage chic. From the intricate lace details on the formal black bridesmaids’ gowns to the custom wedding gown inspired by Victorian touches to little Victorian oil candles, the day was filled with little touches that complemented the couple in every way.

Megan and Rob, thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day! You two are truly inspiring in the way you respect and love each other!
