#karolinagotrobbed y’all! What an amazing wedding day! This wedding was absolutely gorgeous and so amazing to be a part of!! Karolina and Rob got married in a special meaningful location –the backyard of Rob’s childhood home. Which is also the Double J Riding Club in Countryside, IL!
The girls got ready inside Rob’s childhood home. Family was in the kitchen helping prep all the delicious after dinner snacks and cocktail hour food, joking around and chatting. I was assisted by the dogs in the house while taking pictures of Karolina’s gorgeous details. Meanwhile, the guys got ready at Rob & Karolina’s home that was famously featured on House Hunters last fall 😉
Karolina & Rob didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony, however, they still wanted to spend a moment together before they said I do. The two of them decided a “non first look” first look would be an amazing option for them. The two of them held hands, laughed, and cried while enjoying this moment together.
Oh my gosh! Doing bridal party and bride & groom portraits in front of these barn styled doors had me feelin’ like I was in a southern wedding dream!!! Karolina was absolutely STUNNING! She was slayin’ those model faces!! 😉 The two of them had an amazing, small but mighty bridal party that all were great!
Karolina told me that one Christmas Rob gave Karolina 25 gifts. One each day leading up to Christmas. He truly is the kind of gifting. He had multiple gifts for her on their wedding day all relating to the words live laugh love and cry. Karolina and Rob love wine so she surprised him with wines in beautifully made boxes and a watch.
Rob’s reaction to Karolina coming down the aisle is one of my favorites to date. I love groom reactions, but I can’t get over when a guy let’s his guard down and truly lets himself live in the moment. The ceremony was held in the backyard amongst the horses. At the end, Karolina and Rob released butterflies and sealed their marriage with the kiss.
Then we got the whole bridal party together and then…..my favorite part!!! BRIDE & GROOM PORTRAITS!!!! These twoooo!! Ugh! They are so sweet. I love seeing how happy Rob gets when Karolina is around. It’s so sweet!
Rob’s family helped the two of them put together their wedding day and they did an amazing job!! Their reception was absolutely gorgeous. When I first met Karolina she said she wanted rustic chic to be the vibe of their wedding and they nailed it! It was absolutely gorgeous. It was exactly what Karolina wanted! Their speeches given by their maid of honor and best man were both sweet and exactly talked about Karolina and Rob as people. They talked about their different quirks, what they love about them, but most importantly, how perfect Rob and Karolina are for each other. They ended their formalities with a surprised choreographed dance.
Rob & Karolina,
Thank you sooo much for allowing me to be a part of your day! You both looked amazing, the wedding looked gorgeous, and it was so much fun spending time with you guys, watching you two get married. You guys are both kind, fun, and absolutely perfect for each other and I wish you guys a life time of happiness!!! 🙂
