Kim + Darren: Married | Maple Lawn Barn, New Berlin, Illinois

Let me introduce you to Kim and Darren!! Kim runs Springfield Moms — an extensive online resource for families and the area’s go-to website for what’s happening in the Greater Springfield area! Darren is the superintendent at Auburn schools. Each have two amazing kiddos! Oh and let me tell you about those kiddos — so impressive — sweet, kind and SO MUCH FUN!! I had such a great time with them! Kim and Darren — you are definitely doing something very right!! 🙂

I was so excited when Kim called to say they had changed venues for their ceremony! From what she described, I could tell it would be my favorite type of wedding — small and intimate with tons of emotion! Every single person involved in the day is such an important part of their lives — and who better to have near you on one of the most important days — really any day!

So let me tell you about the location — the Maple Lawn Barn in New Berlin, Illinois. It was completely full of sweet and rustic details — this place is a perfect setting! I loved every inch of it! The owners, who also are dear friends of the couple, made everything so easy!

Kim and Darren — all my congratulations!! Thank you so much for asking me to be part of your day!
