Real Wedding - Ricardo and Ariel in Illinois

Starved Rock National Park in Illinois provided the perfect backdrop for Annie Steele's incredible photographs of Ariel and Ricardo's spring wedding at Starved Rock Lodge.

Ariel's older brother and Rick had been childhood friends, so the couple don't remember meeting - but they've been a part of each other's lives since they were small, and a friendship turned to a romance that resulted in this beautiful wedding!

Rustic elegance was the theme of the day, with lace and burlap accents and candlelight galore at their country venue - their ceremony took place in front of a large, open fireplace at Starved Rock Lodge in front of friends and family! 

We love the beautiful baby's breath centerpieces, almost as much as we love their rustic wire cake topper!
