Sarah and Ben maybe some of my favorite people ever!! Sarah and Ben made you feel like the sole focus in a room for their Pear Tree Estate Wedding. As a wedding vendor, that’s unreal! They are both so kind it's actually insane! Of course, the two had stressful moments during their special day, but when they were together, the anxiety melted away. It was beautiful!
Pear Tree Estate Wedding Venue
I can’t say enough about these two and their Pear Tree Estate wedding!! First of all, Pear Tree Estate is one gorgeous wedding venue in Illinois! You could tell that this wedding venue was made from love! It was such an elegant space from its wood trusses, floor-to-ceiling windows which brought in SO much natural lighting (which I love!!) stone fireplaces, Ralph Lauren chandeliers, and warm tones!! I was so excited to shoot here as warm tones and natural lighting is my thing! Not only that but they had both indoor and outdoor spaces to be utilized so we of course took advantage of that for photos!
Pear Tree Estate Wedding Itinerary
We began Sarah and Ben’s day with intimate getting-ready photos and a first look with her bridesmaids. After they took part in a sweet moment reading letters from each other - it was so cute seeing their faces light up with joy!
After they got ready it was time for their church wedding ceremony! Right before their wedding ceremony Sarah's bridesmaid and parents stood over her while they said a quick prayer. I loved capturing this because you could feel and see the true love that was exuding from everyone at this exact moment!
After the ceremony and family photos were bride and groom pictures! One of my favorite moments of their entire wedding day! Running around in the stormy cloudy weather Sarah and Ben laughed and let loose in their newlywed life as the sun set. They ran around hugging, spinning, kissing, you name it. The ceremony was over and they didn't care what happened to what they were wearing, it was just time to party!
"I cannot begin to express my gratitude for Cambria Shelley and the work she did. When I got engaged to my wife, she said that the most important thing for our wedding day was the photographer. She wanted photos that we would treasure forever. We did not make this decision lightly. After doing our due diligence, we felt Cambria would be the best option for us. We are so glad we chose her! She delivered on every aspect. The best part, it didn’t feel like someone was there taking photos of us. It felt like a dear friend was capturing moments of our special day. She is a wonderful photographer, but an even better person!" - Groom, Ben
Sarah and Ben's wedding day was perfect even with the unexpected weather. They both carried such positive attitudes being sure nothing would ruin their beautiful day together. I'm excited to see what the future holds for them and am grateful to have met such kind people!
