plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Mr. A is from a semi-small town in Illinois. And, I was recently introduced to the fantastic photography of Kyle Shultz thanks to Meagan.

He recently shot a wedding where the bride and groom visited the State Fair Grounds. It’s too bad he couldn’t get the bride to go down the slides – now those would have been some photos!

P dot S How gorgeous is the bride?

Edited to add:

A big thanks to Meagan and the Pilot’s Mom for confirming that these photos were in fact taken at the State Fair Grounds!


  1. It’s actually at the State Fair Grounds, I think! : )

    If you knew Jen, you’d know the wedding details could not have been more perfect. She’s super chic … you woud have loved it! The bmaids wore white!

    The Giant Slide is at the Illinois State Fairgrounds very near the main entrance. It only operates during the fair in August and maybe a special event or two. It does make a very interesting background for pictures, especially for this beautiful bride and groom.

  3. Love this shot! What a fun backdrop for a very stylish couple.
