Amanda Miller and Patrick Tolliver tied the knot on June 4th, 2016 at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church with a gorgeous reception following at A Fair Barn in Salem, IL. Every last detail of their day was completely planned and perfect! The classic black bridesmaid’s dresses and groomsmen’s black tuxes paired with the soft greens in the bouquets made for a stunning combo!
Before the wedding ceremony – Amanda and her mom shared a moment together in the bride’s room at A Fair Barn (this new addition to the venue is so awesome!). As a mother, seeing your baby girl grown up and getting married is such an emotional time. I loved being able to quietly capture these moments.
Patrick was in complete awe of his bride walking down the aisle in St. Theresa’s Church. I love watching the groom’s face as the bride is coming down the aisle! We stopped by Jody Smalley’s Badollet House in Salem for some sweet bridal portraits and a few fun bridal party pictures! The Badollet House is always such a gorgeous spot for photos – huge thanks to Jody for allowing us to come out! The loft area at A Fair Barn is absolutely stunning! We snuck upstairs for a few photos before the reception began – it was so worth it!
Their wedding cake and cookies were to DIE for!!! SO gorgeous and SO tasty! Mae’s Sugar Shack did an amazing job!
Amanda’s dad and her choreographed a super sweet surprise dance for the reception – it was EPIC! It started out with a slow song and quickly turned into an upbeat dance! Patrick had no idea (I think the DJ and bride’s parents were the only ones clued in about this neat surprise!!)
