Kristen Zgonina and Stephen Rogers navy and coral wedding in Salem, IL was so beautiful! They were married in St. Theresa’s Catholic Church in Salem, Illinois on April 22nd 2017 and the reception was held at A Fair Barn. Working with these two was such a joy! They are both so full of love and Kristen’s smile can light up a whole room. It was such an honor to be their wedding photographers!
Lots of our couples decide to have an unplugged ceremony because of the overwhelming amount of cell phones & tablets that distract from their big day. This is a great way to give your guests permission to enjoy the day and not feel the need to get the best shot during your special moment. When you hire a professional photography team to capture all the beautiful details – you don’t have to worry about anything being missed!
This Spring and shooting the Rogers wedding marks 7 years of Garren and I shooting weddings together! Each client we have worked with in the last 7 years has been a blessing to our family and helped our business grow. I can’t believe how far we’ve come with this business! Every year we learn so much and gain new nuggets of knowledge to apply to future weddings. One great thing about owning your own business is that you’re able to constantly evolve and improve! My favorite part of shooting weddings is getting to experience the joy and uniqueness of each individual bride & groom. Kristen planned so many neat things that tied in their personalities and colors. I loved the colorful drinks in the mason jars that tied in the navy and coral wedding colors!!
I’d be lying if I didn’t admit to loving the leggings movement that has swept across the nation. Kristen and her bridesmaids were smart to wear leggings under their dresses on this cool, Spring day! What a fun way to add personality to their attire! I’m obsessed with cute and comfy leggings! Adding them to the wedding wardrobe is brilliant! The guys weren’t sporting the leggings – but they wanted to have some fun of their own.. hence the “please-don’t-take-him” shot. Ha!!
A Fair Barn in Salem, IL is such a stunning venue and did such a fantastic job on their navy and coral wedding details. The perfect combination of pearls, lace, and baby’s breath with beautiful vibrant colors! The wedding party did an awesome job giving memorable toasts! Kristen’s sister even wrote a song to perform for her wedding day.. hilarious is an understatement! I’m so glad we also have video footage of these moments for them to remember forever!!! We can’t thank Kristen and Stephen enough for trusting us with their wedding day photos! Being a part of their big day was such an awesome experience.
