Scott + Sherry | Sam Dale Lake Wedding

Congrats to the newest newlyweds, Scott + Sherry!! The weather was perfect for their gorgeous outdoor Sam Dale Lake wedding, located in Johnsonville, IL. The two were married in a gorgeous wooded area, overlooking the lake. Everything went as planned throughout their wedding day, and everyone had a blast celebrating their nuptials! I’ve really enjoyed getting to know them and their families, over the past several months 🙂

The decorative details at their ceremony + reception were beautiful and perfectly matched the overall style + feel. The bride and bridesmaids all wore gowns from David’s Bridal. Their day was full of love, laughter, dancing and excitement. And, perhaps a little relief towards the end, knowing that everything went well and the stress of wedding planning was finally over 😉 I’m so honored to have been a part of their wedding, and am looking forward to photographing the groom’s sister’s wedding next month!
