It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on here. But I’m back, with a truly beautiful, Pinterest-worthy real wedding that I shot for Jolie Images. Leigh Ann & Michael’s rustic boho outdoor wedding at Twin Lakes Golf Course in Palatine, IL is full of beautiful on-trend bohemian details like fluffy pampas and dried florals, triangle wedding arch, and a minimalist naked cake from Nadiya’s Cupcakes with dried florals to match the bride’s bouquet.
In keeping with Leigh Ann’s free spirit, she wanted something whimsical and romantic, vibrant and earthy for a rustic boho wedding. Leigh Ann chose a combination of muted, earthy colors like sand, natural beiges, and ivory to complement the surrounding green spaces of Twin Lakes. Her groom, Michael, and his groomsmen all looked the rustic boho part, too – beards included, I loved their dashing style made complete with brown suspenders, crisp white shirts, and navy trousers.
Every single boho detail of their day was perfect from start to finish, and I absolutely fell in love with all the earthy, natural details. It’s not often that I get to photograph an intimate wedding, and Leigh Ann and Michael’s day, while being on the smaller side due to Covid, was overflowing with love and joy from everyone around them. During the reception, guests were able to chill on lawn chairs set outside the tent – laughing, chatting, smoking cigars together – it felt like old friends getting together and making up for lost time. Leigh Ann and Michael’s special day also included their children, who were just absolutely adorable.
These two share such a heartfelt and genuine connection that left me teary eyed ALL DANG DAY. Between their sweetest vows they shared and their first dance, the love between Leigh Ann and Michael was magnetic all day long. I hope you enjoy seeing this beautiful rustic boho wedding!
