To say that Kelsey and Timmy are troopers would be an understatement! These two were scheduled to tie the knot last March; the weekend that COVID decided to stop the world. Through it all they stayed positive and waited patiently to celebrate their marriage with close friends and family. Although original locations and plans changed; […]

It’s crazy to think that the month of August already marks the one year anniversary of Lexee and Kory’s Oak Hill Farm wedding in Galena. Their wedding was one of our favorites from last year! If anyone knows how to throw a party it’s Lexee and Kory. Their soft and romantic color palette paired perfectly […]

Happy one year and one week to Caitlin and Paul! My, oh my, how time flies. I cannot believe it was just last May on a rainy day that these two said their ‘I Do’s’ in front of their closest friends and family. It wasn’t the outdoor vineyard ceremony that they had dreamed and planned […]

April snow showers? Yes, it snowed on Cassie and Matt’s Spring Blumen Gardens wedding, but no snow was going to damper the day for these two lovebirds. Simple elegance was the look of this wedding. We loved creating some floral personals for these two and their bridal party. There’s so much beauty at Blumen Gardens […]

Can we just rewind and re-do Fall? I feel like we blinked and it was over. It’s officially holiday mode for everyone, but we loved all the Fall weddings we were apart of, including Kelly and Scott’s Acquaviva Winery wedding. We loved their Fall color palette and wanted to share some of our favorites from […]

It’s officially October..say what?! Not sure where the Summer weddings have gone, but I do know that we are so excited for some amazing Fall weddings this year. Today we are loooking back on Julie and Pat’s Fall wedding at Heritage Prairie Farm – Elburn held last October. Their wedding day was full of Fall […]

I don’t think we could have had a more perfect day to celebrate Erin and Andrew’s upcoming wedding with a backyard bridal shower fiesta. Erin holds a special place in our hearts, and we knew we had to make her shower extra special for her. She loves Mexican food, so the fiesta theme idea was […]
