Rustic Bridal Inspiration // The Barn at Allen Acres // Sterling, Illinois Wedding Photographer

Oh my goodness, brides!!! Are you in Northern Illinois? Have you booked your venue yet? Have you heard about The Barn at Allen Acres? BOOM! You’re done. There’s your venue. Honestly, take it from a former bride and rather picky girl, if you are looking for a rustic, chic venue with vintage country charm – this is it! Not only is it an amazing bargain for a wedding venue, it’s just beautiful and ripe with potential as the perfect backdrop for your special day. Want proof? The fabulous and oh-so-sweet owner and caretaker let me come visit for the day and use their site as the backdrop for a bridal inspiration shoot I did over the weekend with my gorgeous model, Emily Rhea. I have photographic proof that this place will rock your wedding world…..and hey, if you are looking for a local photographer who absolutely adores telling your story through photos, I’m totally your girl! Let’s do this thing!
