Starved Rock Wedding Photographer | Jimmy + Marissa

“True love, is the greatest adventure.”

Jimmy + Marissa met in high-school when Marissa was leaving the locker room at John Hersey High School. Marissa was a cheerleader and Jimmy was on the football team. From the moment Jimmy saw Marissa he knew that she was the one. As their friend, it’s been a beautiful journey watching them grow together over these last few years. As their photographer, their wedding day at Starved Rock was a dream to capture! I absolutely love not only hiking at Starved Rock but capturing a wedding day in their warm wood lodge filled with natural light was a blast! It isn’t every day you get an amazing bridal party that’s ready for a hike in the caverns of Starved Rock! From their outdoor ceremony framed by vintage doors created by the groom himself, their two-beers-become-one unity ceremony and their amazing fun filled reception with their hilarious family, it was truly one of my favorites weddings to date! Here is their story. {Enjoy} ~ Ashley Hamm Photography
