Elgin Wedding PhotographyMelissa + Clay
High school sweethearts, Melissa and Clay, tied the knot in their hometown for this Elgin wedding. Their easy going personalities and heartfelt smiles made it easy to document their love for each other. Melissa and Clay each got ready in the homes where they grew up. While they did not see each other before their ceremony, the couple met, held hands and prayed together. It was incredibly sweet! The array of lavender and purple shades popped brilliantly against the greenery of the Elgin Country Club. The wedding party had a great time driving around their golf carts throughout the course as we took portraits before the reception. The rain held off for all of the fun, which gave us enough time to explore the back edge of the course by these beautiful, old willow trees (my favorite!). After dinner, the party instantly began. Everyone was on their feet dancing and having a good time. We had so much fun photographing their celebration. Thank you again to Melissa and Clay. Congratulations!
