Why Did These Texans Wed In Illinois?

Meghan grew up  in Texas, but loved visiting her grandparents on their farm in Illinois and attending the Shiloh church in La Prairie with them.   She was even baptized there, so when the last service was held in 1999, her Grandfather bought the church  so Meghan could one day have her wedding there.

They did indeed get married at the old church on Sunday, May 29th, 2016 and they broke the  attendance record with 125 guests attending from 21 different states!!  It was a very memorable day for them!

Roman and Meghan who both live in Texas, but have family in Illinois, were first introduced to each other by Meghan’s sister who works at the same accounting firm as Roman.  For their first date, the marachi band at the Mexican Restaurant mistakenly congratulated them on their “one-year anniversary”!  The next day Roman invited Meghan out to celebrate their “two year anniversary” and the rest is history!!

For this destination wedding the  floral decor came together with phone chats and exchanged emails and photos.  It was so fun to finally meet the bride on her wedding day!  Meghan chose mixed green garlands with lots of white blooms to decorate the outside and inside of the old church, the old get-away car, as well as the bridal bouquets, bouts, corsages and reception venue decor.

They were blessed with beautiful weather on the Illinois prairie for their country church wedding and reception  which was held in the old barn at the picturesque Pointe D’Vine in Quincy, Illinois.  “The staff did an incredible job setting up, helping the vendors and making sure we had everything we needed to make our fairy-tale wedding a reality!”

” Jennifer Lee Photographee was  very professional and absolutely wonderful to work with, capturing candid moments with non-instrusive photgraphy;   Riverside Smoke House BBQ was delicious and even better than Texas BBQ!”

“The DJ was Tappe Brothers, a great choice for Quincy;  Krazy Cakes made a lovely and delicious cake.”

Tips from Meghan ~ Provide a very detailed schedule and list of  suggested songs for your DJ ~Consider checking with your vendors and preferred venue  for their availability before you choose your date ~Having a day-of coordinator is extremely helpful in taking care of small but important favors and keeping you stress-free which is well worth the extra cost.
