Lovely Primitive Outdoor Wedding: Lisa + Matt: Pontiac, Illinois

A perfect outdoor wedding with primitive details and a love for pizza.

Lisa and Matt are the sweetest couple with a goofy, fun-loving nature and a load of the same kind of friends to join them. Lisa planned an outdoor wedding at Mills Shed outside of Pontiac, Illinois with vintage details and a few pizza inspired additions. The day was put together with colors of Mustard Yellow, Charcoal Grey and Rich Navy and pizza sock for the Groom. The reception was filled with little rustic details of wood and lace, pizza for dinner, delicious cupcakes and custom pizza cutters as party favors.

Lisa said the most important details to them when planning was food and fun for guests, photography and overall aesthetic of the day. The day was an unbelievably cool day for the middle of June that made the outdoor venue even better as guests relaxed, walked around the property, danced and had a great time.

We were able to end the night with some amazing Midwest sunset shots in the field right next to the venue as they told me about their Honeymoon plans to head to Austin, Texas.

Thank You so much to Lisa and Matt for choosing me as your wedding photographer, I couldn’t ask for better people to work with!
