DC Estate Winery Rockford Wedding by Peer Canvas Photographer | Heather + Dwayne

Congratulations to Heather and Dwayne who were married at DC Estate Winery in South Beloit, IL in July.  There were sprinkles of rain, tears of joy, and a wonderful celebration to kick off their future as husband and wife.  The vineyard at DC Estate was an absolutely gorgeous backdrop for their big day.

The groom is a police officer so we had a blast incorporating those fun details into their wedding---like using the badge with their wedding rings.

The bride and her father sharing a moment together before ceremony.  Love a first-look with the Dad.
There wasn't a dry eye in the room as Heather's late mom's wedding ring was sewn onto her bouquet.  It was such a powerful moment.  Brenton and I had never meat Heather's mom, but it is amazing how much emotion could be felt in the room.

Dwayne, is a big Batman fan---so custom batman cufflinks were his gift from Heather.  His face says it all as he opens his gift :)

The groomsmen all looking sharp.  We did have a few tense moments waiting for the rain to pass through before the ceremony.  All the radar screens showed that it would pass---but you don't believe it until the clouds actually part.  Luckily--they parted

The passing rain left an amazing sky for the ceremony at DC Estate Winery.

Fun with the wedding party and of course the squad car!

 A beautiful romantic sunset with just the newlyweds in the vines.  How gorgeous are these two?
