I'm a coffee loving, travel-obsessed, twenty-something based out of Central Illinois. I'm lucky enough to make a living doing what I love - photographing people! I specialize in weddings (destination + local), senior portraits, + boudoir.
It was a Thursday, and you might be wondering, “Who gets married on a Thursday?” Well, Terrisa and Ethan did, and let me tell you, it was nothing short of magical. Picture this: Pear Tree Estates in Champaign, IL, elegant, classic, and with a dash of old Hollywood glamour.
Now, let’s talk about the elephant in the room – the rain. Oh, it rained so hard that morning when I arrived. But here’s the plot twist – by the time we were ready for those dreamy wedding portraits, the rain decided to give us a break and gifted us with a breathtaking sunset. Mother Nature has her own sense of humor, doesn’t she?
One thing I absolutely loved about Terrisa and Ethan’s wedding was that it shattered the myth that you need an even-numbered bridal party for symmetry. They embraced the uniqueness of their friends and family, and it worked beautifully.
But let’s talk aesthetics. The color theme? Classic black and white with glorious gold accents. It was like stepping into a black-and-white movie but with hints of glitz and glam.
In a world where weddings often follow tradition to the tee, Terrisa and Ethan’s Thursday extravaganza proved that you can create your own rules and still have a day that’s pure magic.
So, there you have it – a Thursday wedding that defied expectations, laughed at the rain, and sparkled like old Hollywood. Cheers to Terrisa and Ethan for reminding us that love knows no schedule!
Don’t forget to check out the stunning images from this classic black and white affair, and who knows, you might just be inspired to plan your own unconventional celebration.
And that, my friends, is how you throw a Hollywood-style love story right here in Champaign, IL.
Remember, when life gives you rain on your wedding day, dance in it and let it lead you to a breathtaking sunset.
