University of Illinois Sweethearts | Fall Engagement Session | Champaign, IL

Katie and Dan's love story began at the Noyes Lab on the University of Illinois UIUC campus and Dan proposed to Katie at the Arboretum in Urbana so it only made sense that we visit those places to take their engagement pictures.    It was a typical late fall day in central Illinois with a chill in the air that only encouraged more cozying up which definitely worked in our favor.  ;-) We can't wait for their wedding day at Pear Tree Estate!

Country sunset engagement session with a lineman and his fiance' | Paxton, IL |

We fell in love with Jake and Jackie from the minute we met them.  And what's been fun is that we've kept in touch with Jackie from day 1... through Snapchat no less.  It's been so fun keeping in the loop regarding wedding details in addition to non-wedding related fun.... like Jake finally shaving his beard.  :-)   And speaking of Snapchat, after all of the fun we've had on our personal Snapchat accounts with Jackie, we just created one for specifically Sweet Darling Weddings.  So if you want to follow us on Snapchat you can get a glimpse of some of the fun we have.  Our Snapchat name is Sweet Darling Weddings and our screen name is darlingweddings.  Find us.  We love to make new friends!
