Paul + Sam // Hancock Stadium Wedding // Normal, Illinois

If theres one thing I prepare for before going to a wedding its that someone in the room is going to be anxious/nervous/stressed out, and for Sam + her ladies, that was NOT the case. Sam was so calm all day, it just sweet seeing how she was just ready to marry Paul. I don’t think anything could have rattled her.

When Mitchell and I pulled up to Hancock Stadium, it was actually the first time I had ever set foot inside. In my four years of college I never went to an ISU football game, (whoops). But you know I didn’t only get to go inside, I got to hang out in the presidents suite, walk on the field, and enjoy the Hancock Stadium Club. Let me tell you, brides. If you want a photographers dream for a reception venue…. THIS IS IT. <3

These two are really just the sweetest people. They love each other so much, you could just tell when they were together. Sam loves Paul so well, she surprised him with a super awesome get away car from the ceremony, and Paul just adores Sam. I can’t rave about them enough! Enjoy this sneak peek! <3
