Dana + Kendell Coates| Rockford, IL

I left Dana + Kendell’s wedding with the biggest smile on face. Their day was absolutely amazing. Dana + Kendell first met in grade school, but it wasn’t until high school they finally connected. 6 years later brought them to their beautiful wedding. This sweet pair was surrounded by their family and friends during their “I do’s” and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. The celebration continued at their reception at the Radisson Hotel. It was a great night filled with so much love and laughter.  The dance floor was packed as the night continued.

Dana + Kendell, it was such an honor getting to know you both during your chilly Madison engagement shoot and throughout the craziness of wedding planning.  Thank you for inviting me to be part of your best day ever. It was truly beautiful and I wish you both nothing but happiness and countless adventures.  Stay amazing!
