Emily and Neal’s Historic Bell Hill Wedding this past weekend was absolutely beautiful from the start of the day to the celebration at the end! Historic Bell Hill is set in Southern Illinois looking out over rolling hills. So with that beautiful scene in your mind, just imagine how perfect it would be to say I Do under a tree in a field on a day filled with more sunshine and love than you could possibly hope for.
Emily and Neal are both botanists, which is actually how they met! So it was only fitting that Emily provide all the beautiful floral arrangements for her day! The reception was set in a rustic barn with hanging flowers and a sweets table that even we got excited for! These two sweethearts opted for a low key reception with an Indie band and everyone free to mingle and eat to their hearts content. Since Emily and Neal decided that a first dance wasn’t for them, we took a moment toward the end of the evening to capture a few beautiful moments, dancing, under the lights!
Congratulations Emily and Neal, your day could not have been a more perfect representation of your sweet personalities and we were so honored to photograph all the moments that took place that day!
