How Beautiful Central Illinois Weddings Come Together!

How does a beautiful central Illinois wedding all come together?  It takes a team of vendors collaborating, communicating and planning with the bride & groom!!  We were thankful for Ephiphany Farms and Palace Events staff who worked smoothly with us for Alex and MacKenzie’s ceremony and successfully flipped the room for the reception!  What a knockout it turned out to be!! Alex and MacKenzie chose to have photos taken at the location of their first date Emack & Bolios in uptown Normal, IL.  Photos  by Micah McCoy Studio.

On their first date they enjoyed ice-cream and then walked around uptown Normal for a couple of hours talking.  They quickly realized they had a connection and felt a sense of comfort and familiarity with each other.

We custom created yards and yards of mixed green garlands for the tables and MacKenzie’s mom had a great idea to use them to line the aisle seats at the ceremony, then re-use for the reception.  They looked fabulous garnished with a few blooms and ribbons.
   
MacKenzie’s favorite part of wedding planning was dress shopping.  She stated, “Wedding dresses are made to make you look good and it was so fun to try on different styles/silhouttes!  I ended up choosing something completely different than I thought I would.  MacKenzie  had two handsome European ushers and she and her family were so delighted  that they could come from Germany and Italy for the wedding – they were former foreign exchange students who had lived with her family!!

After the ceremony, which was held in the upper-level ballroom at Epiphany Farms, the guests were ushered into Anju Above for appetizers while Palace Events brought in their  beautiful harvest tables, and we placed the garlands and blooms of purple trachellium, White O’hara garden roses and Ocean Song lavender roses to decorate the tables.

For her wedding decor and bridal bouquet, MacKenzie chose a mix of purple trachellium, stock, astrantia, lavender spray roses & wax flower and white ranunculus.  Her biggest challenge with wedding planning  was staying true to their vision when other close family and friends offered their opinions and even though she and Alex wanted them to feel included –  yet they wanted it to be what they had envisioned!!

What is her advice to newly engaged couples planning their wedding?  “Remember to have fun!!  This is one of the best times in your relationship and it goes by so fast!  Try not to let things stress you out and if it starts to feel like work, take a break!”

5 Circular Wreath Ideas For Central Illinois Weddings

The Circular Backdrop

The circular wreath is predicted to be a hot trend for 2017.  Here are five wasy to incorporate it into your Central Illinois Wedding.
 

1.   Frame a gorgeous view.

If your venue offers a beautiful view, don’t cover it up – frame it with a beautiful floral circular backdrop.
 

2.  Cover It Up.

Don’t have a beautiful view to frame?  Here’s a way to cover a wall – so simple – but so beautiful!  Decorate a frame with wired greens arranged in a concentric circles woven around the frame.
 

3. Add An Accent.

For a smaller space, maybe as a backdrop for buffet or dessert table, hang an assortment of hoops covered with green ferns and other foliage.   Embellished the wreaths with a few hanging blooms such as tulips or callas which have stems that curve naturally.
 

4. Overhead!

Don’t have wall space for a floral circular backdrop?  Hang one from the ceiling for a dramatic lush focal area for you to stand under!  How gorgeous is that?!!
 

5.  Last But Not Least, On The Ground.

Maybe you don’t have any walls or spaces to hang anything ?  You can create a beautiful floral circle at the base of altar area for you to take your vows.
