STronghold Retreat center - oregon, illinois

Rebecca and Cristian were married in Oregon, IL this past October, and the day couldn't have been any more perfect. The weather was gorgeous, and everything went perfectly.

I met Rebecca the morning of her wedding inside the Stronghold Castle - located in the middle-of-nowhere Oregon, IL - and let me tell you, this is one of those hidden beauties that you DEFINITELY do not want to miss! Rebecca was helping her girls make sure they had everything they needed - she was truly the BEST bride. She then got ready, where she got to hang with her best gal pals in the Day Room of the castle - which provided the hair and make up team the best lighting for getting the team ready.

After everyone was dressed, Rebecca and Cris shared an intimate First Look in the spiral staircase - one of Rebecca's only requests - which made for a unique and gorgeous first look. After that, we met everyone outside, and got through bridal party photos, just in time for wedding guests to start arriving!

After the ceremony, the night was filled with good food, and even better memories that are sure to last these two a lifetime.

Rebecca and Cris, congrats again on your wedding, and thank you SO much for including me in part of your day!
