We love weddings at this rustic venue and one of those weddings was Jackie and Kevin’s. These two held an outdoor ceremony on the grounds and followed it up with some live cocktail […]

Nothing screams Spring/Summer more than Amanda and George’s outdoor wedding at Blumen Gardens – Sycamore. So many romantic details…and that dress!!! Need we say more! These two were another Covid couple that made the most of it and celebrated their love at a later date. We love all the garden feels of their special day […]

Brittany and Joe’s wedding this past Summer at Cantigny Park was one of our favorites. Soft blush tones and clean white blooms made for a classic outdoor tent wedding. We were so honored to have been apart of their wedding day and loved all the romantic images captured by Rachael Watson Photography. Here is a […]

We are headed into a crazy weekend full of fabulous Fall events, but we wanted to take a hot minute to share a little pretty! We haven’t blogged in awhile and we thought Ariana’s Lunch and Bubbly bridal shower at Riverside Receptions in Geneva would be the perfect event to jump back into the blogging […]

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!

It’s crazy to think that Alex and Chris tied the knot already a year ago! These two had lots of soft romantic details from the draped pergola for their ceremony to the candlelight filled tables inside the main dining room at Fishermen’s Inn; we loved embellishing each and every space. We used various shades of […]

It feels like just yesterday that we were setting up Lauren and Joey’s Acquaviva Winery wedding and crossing our fingers that the projected rain would stay away. Fortunately it did, and we love the way everything turned out for these two. We’ve been holding onto some of their wedding images throughout the busyness and craziness, […]

Even in January the wedding business does not slow down! Just like the couples, we spend the colder months prepping and planning for all those summer month festivities. One of the events we love being apart of during the colder months is the open house for couples at Acquaviva Winery-Maple Park.  We get to be […]

Erin and Andrew hold a special place in my heart. Erin is my godchild, and it has been amazing to see her grow-up and become a bride. Her and Andrew are so perfect together! They way they look at each other just shows how much love is shared between these two. Like any wedding; we […]
