Laney + Matt ~ Rockford Country Club Wedding Photography

From day one of working with these two they have just been so positive and such a bright light in this crazy year!! They’ve been through so much with planning and re-planning their wedding (thankfully with the amazing Cindy of Effortless Events by their side!!) and my goodness did it just feel SO GOOD to finally have their day arrive and for it to just be so perfect!! It was a gorgeous (and windy!) fall day in Rockford and the love that surrounded Laney & Matt in the room that night was electric – truly! And as we listened to their loved ones give speeches about the two of them it because really apparent that not only are these two amazing people – they surround themselves with amazing people too. Laney’s dad gave the sweetest speech, where the first people he thanked was Cindy for staying alongside them on this crazy planning journey amid a pandemic, and ALL of the staff at the venue – waiters, bartenders, everyone – for how wonderful they had been as well. It speaks volumes of a person (and their whole family) that the first people they thought to thank were people who are often ignored or not even recognized on a wedding day. It actually brought tears to my eyes to hear it!

Anyway – I digress!! 🙂 This day was magic and these two are gorgeous!! Scroll down to see all the joy!!

Laney & Matt ~ THANK YOU!!! You two are truly the best and we can’t wait to hopefully grab a beer with you someday when the world is right-side-up again! We adore you and hope these photos make you SMILE really big today!! XOXO ~ Christy & James 🙂
