  • Pear Tree Estate | Green + Gold Tasting Event

  • Last Friday I spent an hour or so at the always lovely Pear Tree Estate photographing their space, setup and details prior to one of the tasting events. I don't think I've seen this particular color scheme at PTE, and I immediately fell in love with the way the gold and green elements meshed toget[...]
  • Tina + Julie | Pear Tree Estate wedding | Champaign

  • WOW! Tina + Julie's wedding day was amazing in so many ways. It started out with all the ladies getting ready up in the Concorde Room at Pear Tree Estate, where Tina was trying to relax with some wine while she got her hair and makeup done. She looked radiant! Then it was time to go upstairs to [...]
  • Andrea + Wes | Pear Tree Estate wedding | Champaign

  • Oh, man! Where do I start with this one?? Well, I cried. I tried to reign it in, but after Andrea + Wes were pronounced as man and wife and walked back down the aisle, the waterworks started! Andrea + I were roommates several years back where we had two great years together when we both were sti[...]
  • Peaches + Cream themed Tasting Event | Pear Tree Estate

  • Pear Tree Estate hosting one of their tasting events this week and asked me to come out and photograph the room and details beforehand. I approached it similarly to how I would a wedding, but without any people! :) That part was a little different, but I LOVE photographing details, so it was fun t[...]
  • Emily + Peter | Pear Tree Estate wedding | Champaign

  • I never quite know what to expect when I haven't met a couple prior to their wedding day. But when I walked up to the "First Look" site where Peter would see Emily in her wedding gown for the first time, everything was as perfect as I could have imagined. Emily hugged me right away and basically t[...]
  • Emily + Jordan | Pear Tree Estate winter wedding

  • Emily + Jordan were blessed with this amazing unseasonably mild December we're having at their wedding this past Saturday. I woke up to sunny skies, and couldn't have been more thrilled for this pair! Pear Tree was all decked out for the holidays too, which tied in nicely with the couple's metallic[...]
  • Neena + Justin | Pear Tree Estate Indian + Hindu wedding

  • Wow! My first Indian wedding was so amazing and gorgeous, and I thoroughly enjoyed being immersed in the cultural festivities for the day! Just watching Neena get adorned with all her jewelry was an event in itself too! Justin + Neena pulled the red and gold theme together beautifully with their m[...]
  • Pear Tree Estate | White theme tasting event

  • Pear Tree Estate hosted another one of their full-service tasting events last week, and I was fortunate enough to get to photograph it (and EAT!!). PTE has hospitality down to a science and their mantra is that magic happens over a table-full of excellent food, so a magnificent spread is always on [...]
  • Pear Tree Estate | Champaign Wedding Venue Tasting Event

  • I had the pleasure of photographing the food for a tasting event held at Pear Tree Estate last week. I have a couple of weddings booked there for 2015 (and even one for 2016!), and was lucky enough to run into one of my couples there -- so fun! The staff there even sent me home with a goodie bag o[...]
  • Jenny + Brandon | Pear Tree Estate wedding

  • I had the privilege of once again second shooting a wedding for my good friend Kellie of Across the Miles Photography on Friday. It was great to meet Brandon + Jenny and I could tell right away that they were great people with a solid group of friends. It was SUPER windy that day, but we did our be[...]
