Fallyn + Justin met in 2017 on a wonderful app called Tinder! After talking for a few days, they decided to meet up for coffee. Fallyn ended up canceling at the last minute because she got too nervous, but he still asked if they could reschedule. Justin does comedy, so they decided that Fallyn would meet him at an open mic night at Clark Bar. She said that the show was great and he was hilarious, but she said the best part was when they were just sitting at a table together and talking with each other after the show. They ended up talking all night until the bar closed. From that night on, they knew it was meant to be! After falling in love, buying a house and moving in together, fast forward about 4 and a half years later to September 3, 2021 when Justin proposed. They had already made plans to go out that evening, so Fallyn came home from work and started getting ready for date night. After she curled her hair and changed into a cute outfit, she went to find Justin sitting on the couch with their cat, TC. He asked her to sit with him so she did and he started to tell her about all the things he loved about her, their relationship, and how much it all means to him. He pulled out the ring box from behind a pillow and even though they were sitting on the couch, he still got on one knee. Fallyn was speechless.. All she could do was say “Really??”. She says that it wasn’t a big, flashy moment but it was perfect for them and that is what truly matters. Your proposal doesn’t have to be flashy or big, it can be intimate, and true to you two and that’s what makes it perfect!
Fallyn + Justin chose to get married at the stunning Pear Tree Estate in Champaign, IL. They had the most simple and elegant decor, it was so dreamy. We started the day with the most beautiful details, I mean look at them.. a moment for the shoes please. After details we got Fallyn in her stunning dress and ready to do her first looks with her dad and then Justin. Both first looks were such sweet moments in the front of the beautiful (and warm) fireplace. After that we did some photos of Fallyn + Justin around the Pear Tree Estate property and while it was super cold these two killed it. With it being so cold it gave them the opportunity to really get snuggled up with each other to keep warm. Once we did some photos outside we headed inside to do a few more photos in their ceremony space. Once we finished their photos we did their wedding party photos and then some family photos. It was then time for the ceremony and let me tell you, it was dreamy. It was dark outside and with the candles lining the aisle it was truly so dreamy. Once the ceremony was over we did a few more photos of the two of them inside the venue with flash and they were such a vibe! After that it was time for a delicious meal, speeches, donuts and then DANCING! This was such an intentional, intimate day and I loved getting to be a part of it. Enjoy some of my favorite photos from their wedding day!
