Andrea and Christian | Hotel Baker | Creek Bend Nature Center Wedding | St. Charles, IL

Engagement Session HERE

Andrea and Christian are simple people who love God and their friends and family dearly. Their wedding had a rustic antique charm to it and was held at Creek Bend Nature Center in St. Charles, IL. I absolutely adored the Old-Hollywood feel of Andrea’s hair and makeup, which went perfectly with her beaded lace wedding gown and veil.

The girls got ready in the penthouse suite at Hotel Baker, which wasn’t too far from the venue. I just remember thinking to myself how beautiful and soft the natural light was in their space. It was truly a dream to shoot in and the girls were stunning! Christian and Andrea wanted to save their first look down the aisle, which was magical. Andrea’s father had us all tearing up with him.

Mr. and Mrs. Copple, thank you for choosing me as your wedding and engagement photographer. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful wedding to document and such sweet people to spend my day with. I hope you’re living in up in Hawaii for your honeymoon. You guys deserve it! XO Candace
