Brandon and Alli are Married ~ Quad City Wedding Photographer ~ The Stables in Kewanee

October 7, 2019

I’m so excited to share images from a recent wedding I did that took place at in Annawan and was celebrated at The Stables. This was obviously the PERFECT location since the newlyweds had a romantic, rustic-inspired wedding! Alli and Brandon thought this thing through from beginning to end, and there wasn’t a shortage of dreamy, Pinterest-worthy moments. I especially loved the lights hanging throughout the barn, not to mention the simple, rustic centerpieces.

And can we talk about that dress for a second? Alli said that she purchased this from Bridal Elegance, and I don’t think she could have chosen a more flattering gown.

I will never grow tired of rustic weddings, especially when they’re done so impeccably like this one. Congratulations again on your wedding, you two, and may your years be filled with happiness!
