Dan & Dana | A Classic Vibrant Wedding at The Wagner House in Freeport, Illinois


It’s safe to say that I am bursting at the seams to be pushing publish on Dana & Dan’s wedding day. I have been excitedly looking forward to celebrating these two since the day Dana landed in my inbox in June of 2019. Dana and I went to high school together and did cheerleading together so it felt extra special having a front row seat to her and Dan’s big day.

The forecast leading up to this past Saturday wasn’t the greatest but I knew that The Wagner House would provide the perfect backdrop if we had to take everything inside. I was keeping an eye on the radar and quickly noticed that the percentages were dropping BIG for our area. I’m talking 70% down to 20-30% so I just KNEW that we were going to get exactly what we needed outside.

& I was right. By the end of Dana & Dan’s ceremony, the SUN decided to peep out every so often. Lucky for us because of the rain that had happened that morning, the light was SO unbelievably dreamy and magical.

Outside of all that, Dana and Dan are about as sweet as they come. From their families to their wedding party the whole day felt like one giant HUG and I will never forgot that.

Congratulations you two! I hope your mini-moon is absolutely MAGICAL and I can not WAIT for you to see your full gallery!
