I loved this wedding for so many reasons. Mostly the fact that every detail was personal and had meaning. Well, that’s exactly how Caleb & Ann Kathryn wanted things. . . simple, vintage, artistic and intimate. And everything came together perfect! Including the weather that felt like April instead of January.
The ceremony and reception were held at the Foundry Art Centre in historic St. Charles. How perfect since Ann Kathryn is an artist, specifically a jewelry designer. When you see her work you will fall in love and want an AnnKat design for yourself, I promise. Check out her work on etsy! She designed all the wonderful details of their wedding, the invitations, her headpiece and the bridal party headpieces, original AnnKat designed bracelets, the grooms boutonnieres, the list goes on and on. Her touches made every facet of their day unique, and personal to them. And I can’t think of anything better and I’m so blessed that I got to be a part of it all!! In addition, the amazing Meghan, from Cheeky Chic Studios helped with the styling details. She just so happens to be Ann Kathryn’s sister-in-law. How fun is that?!! You remember that cool red backdrop behind Caleb & Ann Kathryn in the previous post, yep that was all Meghan. I had the great good fortune to be able to work with Meghan on previous projects and now I also feel lucky to call her friend. And speaking of friends, I have to give a huge THANKS to my friend and fellow professional photographer for being my second shooter for the wedding, Valerie, of Valerie Ott Photography. Being able to shoot together was a dream come true!!
