Eden Garden & Farm Micro Wedding | Harvard Illinois Wedding Photographer

A Perfect Setting for an Intimate Celebration

I recently traveled northwest to the charming town of Harvard, Illinois, to photograph Sophie and Chris’s intimate wedding at the picturesque Eden Garden & Farm. This beautiful Bed and Breakfast estate is perfectly set up for an outdoor wedding, providing a serene and romantic backdrop that every couple dreams of.

Getting Ready at Eden Garden & Farm

The day began with Sophie and Chris getting ready in the cozy rooms of the house. The warm, inviting interiors provided a perfect setting for capturing those precious pre-wedding moments. From the bride’s final touches on her makeup to the groom adjusting his tie, every detail was documented to tell the story of their special day.

A Heartfelt Ceremony

Surrounded by their closest family and friends, Sophie and Chris exchanged their vows in a short yet incredibly heartfelt ceremony. The intimate nature of the gathering made every moment more poignant and personal. The love and joy in the air were palpable, making it a privilege to capture these tender moments.

Dinner, Drinks, and Delightful Portraits

Following the ceremony, guests moved to the elegantly decorated tent for dinner and drinks. As the festivities began, I took the opportunity to explore the estate for portrait sessions. The natural beauty of Eden Garden & Farm, combined with the gorgeous light of the evening, provided a stunning setting for photos.

Golden Hour Magic

One of the highlights of the day was photographing Sophie and Chris during the golden hour. I asked them to walk a few hundred yards to capture a wide shot with the magical evening light. They didn’t hesitate, and the resulting photos were simply breathtaking. We even had an unexpected guest—a rooster who decided to chase us, adding a touch of humor to the moment!

The Beauty of Micro Weddings

I love photographing micro weddings because the emotions are more visible and the connections more intimate. Sophie and Chris’s wedding was a perfect example of this.
