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!”

What Did This Bride Enjoy Most In Planning Her Central Illinois Wedding?

Jared and Molly  –  March 12, 2016

  When we asked Molly what she enjoyed most about wedding planning, she said it was planning for decorating the reception which was held at The Walton Center in Fairbury.  She enjoyed browsing Pinterest and getting ideas, so when we met together to talk about wedding flowers, she and her mom already had many ideas for decorating.  Her vision was for a rustic, country theme and even though it was hard to narrow down her many ideas, she said it was so fun.  They rented our vintage doors to use as a back drop (see photo below.)
Vintage Door Backdrop
Jared proposed to Molly on Christmas.  As Molly opened up the last of her gifts, Jared pulled out a box and as he tossed it to her said “Here – I think this is what you want!”  Molly explains that Jared is a very shy guy and is not much for words, so of course she just laughed and said “YES!!”
 2106p
For her wedding bouquet, Molly chose blue and white flowers to coordinate with the bridesmaid’s navy dresses.  Her mom surprised her by bringing us lace from her wedding dress to wrap around the handle of her bouquet.  Molly also personalized her bouquet in memory of her uncle by placing his initial on the bouquet handle.
 283p
The least enjoyable part of wedding planning for this couple was watching the $$$ add up and realizing they had to cut back their guest list.  It made it stressful worrying about causing hurt feelings and was just not a fun part of the planning!!
 614p
For the cupcake table they rented our wooden crates to display the cupcakes.  The cake table backdrop was made from wooden pallets in keeping with the rustic theme.  Molly’s mom hung an old wooden ladder over the head-table.  Hanging from the ladder were jars filled with string lights.
 img_20160312_155610491p
  Molly chose our white birch boxes filled with white and blue flowers for half of the reception table arrangements.
 img_20160314_062249p
The other half of the tables had our cylinder vase sets with submerged blooms and floating candles which Molly and her mom added twine and burlap/lace ribbon to and placed them on wood slabs.
 img_20160314_063229p
Jared and Molly’s first dance was to “When you say nothing at all” by Alison Krauss.  Molly offers this advice on planning your wedding.  Don’t stress!!  It’s easy to say now and at the time I did stress, but now looking back I see that the most important things were having family friends with us to celebrate.  We had some things that we could have let interfere with the happiness of the day such as a funeral at the church leaving only two hours for us to decorate before guests started coming and me rear-ending someone with my car on rehearsal night.  I could have let it ruin my day, but I didn’t…why?…Because I still married my best friend at the end of the day!  Enjoy every minute because it goes so fast.
615p
When the day came, everything we had both dreamed of came true!  We had our family and friends with us, the flowers were perfect, the decorations were perfect, I was in a dress that suited my style, the girls and guys all looked great!!

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.
 country church 325 romanandmeghan325
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!
 churchspray325  pewdecor325
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!!
 getawaycar650
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.
 JLP_8718p325  weddingparty325
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!”
 JLP_9608p325  JLP_1024p325
” 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!”
 JLP_9602p325 JLP_9629p325
“The DJ was Tappe Brothers, a great choice for Quincy;  Krazy Cakes made a lovely and delicious cake.”
 cake325  JLP_0099p
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.

8 Things To Remember When Choosing Your Wedding Florist

1. Don’t Book Your Florist Last

If flowers are important to you, don’t forget to budget for flowers and book early.  Many florists who specialize in weddings only do one or two weddings per weekend, and they book up early – 6 to 12 months out is not too early to book your florist.
View More: http://kristi-lee.pass.us/wenger

2.  Identify Your Style

Develop your style, theme and colors.  It is very helpful to have photos and fabric color swatches when you meet for your consultation with the florist.  Don’t make the mistake of just trying to match the flowers to the bridesmaid dresses, but think about how the flowers will look in the wedding photos  and show up against the dresses.
View More: http://kristi-lee.pass.us/wenger

3.  Ballpark your budget

Do try to have a budget figure in mind.  The average flower budget is 7% of the total wedding budget.  Be honest with your florist about your budget, it will save everyone time.  Ask your florist if your budget is reasonable for what you want and the look you are trying to achieve.  The florist can help you explore the best options and can help you get the most for your money if they know the amount you have budgeted.
View More: http://kristi-lee.pass.us/wenger

4.  Trust your florist

It’s a mistake to hire a florist you feel you cannot trust.  Ask to see the florist’s portfolio of real weddings they have done, take the time to research the reviews their past clients have left about their services.  Communicate and develop a rapport with them so that you feel comfortable and confident with them.  By asking for an overall look, feel & color scheme and being able to compromise (maybe that peony you had your heart set on in September would be possible to get, but not look it’s best and be outrageously expensive) – the florist can do a better job of using their talents and knowledge (a garden rose would give the look and be cheaper at this time) to create the look you are trying to achieve.
IMG_6265edited2

5.  Do re-use ceremony decor at the reception

Ask a family member or friend to transport the ceremony decor to the reception site so that it can serve double duty.  There are many areas where ceremony decor can be placed at the reception; an entry site, card/gift tables, etc 0658p

6.  Do see the big picture.

Think about how table linens along with the flowers will complete the look of the table.  It’s much more interesting to have a variety of centerpieces with some taller (should be tall enough to not obstruct guests view across the table) and some shorter to make a statement as you enter the room .  Don’t make the mistake of thinking that every centerpiece has to be the same height.
The headache is represented on the face of the beautiful bride in a wedding dress near a bed stressed-bride

7. Don’t take on too much DIY

It’s fun and permissible to have some DIY for your wedding day, but anything that has to be done on the last few days before your wedding should be left to the professionals to worry about.  You want to be able to relax, enjoy getting ready and not worry about anything going wrong on your special day.  The day itself will  be exhausting enough for you and your family without having to worry about wilting flowers or decorating tables last minute.  Many times the DIY projects end up costing more than hiring a florist in the first place.

8. Other helpful questions to ask before book your florist

  • Which flowers can be substituted to better fit my budget?
  •  Can you add flowers to my wedding cake?
  • What is the delivery and set up fee?
  • Will there be a charge to come back and tear down flowers and take back vases and rented equipment?
  • Determine the place and time of personal flower delivery.
  • How much time will you need to set up the reception and ceremony decor?
  • How much is the deposit and when is it due?
  • When is the final payment due?
  • Will I receive an itemized floral proposal along with prices?
  • What is your refund policy?

What Colors Are Trending For 2016?

A Softer Take On Color For 2016

For the first time, the blending of two shades are chosen as the Pantone color of the year.  It feels like deja vu for those of us old enough to remember the 80’s, with Pantone’s selection of Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue!  Actually the shades chosen for this year are a touch softer than the country blue and mauve which dominated the market three decades ago.
ce52420e6ca8e79e00b201356032fba5
Rose quartz is a gentle tone that conveys compassion and Serenity blue is as weightless and airy as the sky above us.  Both colors offer feelings of calm and tranquility in the midst of turbulence around us. For the bride this brings a beautiful soft touch in fabrics as well as flowers for bridal bouquets, boutonniere and corsages.
 957eccd2eb26b5098eddf37ee9efcdd9
Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue shade, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.  Blended with soft green and gray foliage, wedding bouquets created from flowers in these shades will present a calming balance to the ceremony.
 cb38f4a9c82d6478decf3703002e29fb
Rose quartz and Serenity blue are appealing in all finishes, matte, metallic and glossy, the engaging combo joins easily with other mid-tones including greens and purples, rich browns, and all shades of yellow and pink. Add in silver or hot brights for more splash and sparkle.  Source: Pantone Color of The Year 2016
af1c92a222222e41e8e6d9184a505f79
Hydrangeas and delphinium are two wonderful sources of the soft blue of serenity and there is a wonderful selection of rose shades found in roses, ranunculus and many others for wedding bouquets, boutonniere and  reception centerpiece arrangements.  These pastel shades would be perfect for a spring wedding!

Outstanding Central Illinois Wedding Vendors

 Autumn Harvest Themed Wedding

Garrett and Maggie Zano were married in an outdoor ceremony at Ewing Manor on October 24, 2015.  The  windy day, holding a threat of rain, provided some challenges, but thanks to these great vendors, this couple was in good hands!  They were thrilled with Greg Linder Photography, Palace Events, Baxter’s, Fancy Florals By Nancy and of course the enchanting Ewing Manor.
 507p
Garrett and Maggie love the outdoors and woods in particular.  Maggie was born in October and adores the color of the trees turning, crisp cool air and decorations including pumpkins.  They are also very big fans of the Renaissance Fairies and wanted to incorporate the medieval/renaissance feel which made Ewing Manor and the harvest theme perfect.  She explained that it also birthed the idea for her flower crown which she felt was the perfect touch for their special day.
 494
When we asked Maggie what made her fall in love with Garrett, she stated that she knows everyone says this but for her it’s absolutely true – she fell in love with him the night they met!!  “I fell in love with his voice first as we shared a stimulating conversation by skipping over superficial topics like food and favorites, and diving right into deep discussions of space and time, life on other planets, and other oddities of the universe.  He both challenges and comforts me!”
 200    
Garrett had planned a special surprise for Maggie complete with a fairy-tale picnic with champagne at Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park.  He had the day off of work, but not Maggie so when he picked her up after work she was exhausted and declined his offer of a drive and picnic.  After arriving home, she noticed the champagne in the fridge, and the cogs in her head started to turn….She quickly threw on her favorite dress and pushed Garrett out the door.  By getting a late start, the sunlight had closed for Skyline Drive, so they went to Great Falls National Park and took a hike that seemed to take forever to Maggie.  Coming to a clearing, Garrett finally got down on one knee and said the four magical words.  Maggie was crying too hard to answer, but Garrett understood her sobs were a yes!!  Engaged!!!
October 24, 2015 079ep October 24, 2015 065p
Maggie shared that all of her vendors did such a great job!  “I used Palace Events for my tent and other rental equipment and they were wonderful.  They work with you every step of the way and do set up and take down.  The tent was magical and the tables just right.  Fancy Florals By Nancy created breathtaking wedding bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres and a perfect floral crown.  Nancy also did last minute floral touches to our DIY table decor when we found some extra money in the budget!!  Baxter’s event planner Natalie was amazing to work with – I had many last minute changes which she catered to and the food was incredible!
484  
Maggie loved her wedding photos by Greg Linder – the above pose is her favorite!!  Her advice for newly engaged couples?  Enjoy it together; go on tastings, visit vendors together – you will fall even more in love.  Don’t try to micromanage and let little things upset you because in the end they really do not matter!  Her most important advice?  Eat before you go – you are filled with nerves and happiness so hunger is a second thought.  I think I only sat at my plate for two minutes!  

Do this to make sure your wedding day goes smoothly

Nick and Sondra Urish were married August 22, 2015 at the lovely Metamora Fields Golf Club in a beautiful outdoor ceremony.  These stunning photos were taken by Kara Kamienski Photography.  As far as the couple knew, everything went perfectly smooth thanks to their team of family and friends who were there to make it happen!!  Sondra’s advice to couples planning their own weddings is to make sure multiple people know your plan for the day so that when vendors arrive and have questions they can help out and you can relax and focus on getting ready.  Designate family and friends to help out in the days prior and the day of so you can enjoy every bit of the day.

Sondra also encourages engaged couples to not stress over all the planning, and to make sure you have fun with it!  She found it helpful to have an account on Wedding Wire and used their to-do list to help her keep track of what should be done and when.

Among the moments that stick out in her memory were seeing her husband’s emotion when he saw her for the first look orchestrated by the photographer.  She stated how much they enjoyed having those first few moments to themselves.  Second was when they sealed the deal with a kiss.  Third was taking photos with their awesome bridal party & photographer.  And fourth was their reception and seeing all of their guests having such a great time.   Everyone understands how quickly the wedding day goes by so enjoy every minute of the day with your friends and family and most importantly with your groom.  Make sure you take some time for a SECOND slow dance with your husband and to enjoy the day and moment in time with him!!

Nick and Sondra met at U of I in agronomy club.  They are both from die-hard Illini families, so Nick planned his marriage proposal to Sondra to coincide with Illini 2014 Homecoming.  As they both currently had siblings attending U of I, Nick gathered them and their friends together for dinner and drinks.   They walked back to the quad where Nick had lined up the perfect spot to propose – in front of Foellinger Auditorium on the south side of the main quad.   He had his brother delay the group with a stop to see the newly renovated Lincoln Hall, so they could wait until everyone else was off the quad where Nick was planning to propose.   After Sondra said “yes” Nick informed her that he had lined up her parents and sister along with his parents to join them all in celebration at tailgate.  The Illini even squeaked out a win at the big game!  It was the perfect spot for the proposal because they both began their journey to where they are today as a couple at the U of I and would never have met each other if it wasn’t for their ties to agriculture at the university.

The reception was held at the gorgeous Fields Ballroom on the second level of Metamora Fields Club House where the seating capacity is 400 and the staff does an excellent job.  The DJ was Buster from Extreme DJ’s & Lighting who provided a fun evening for everyone.  Flowers were done by Fancy Florals By Nancy.  Sondra chose shades of peach and cream for her bridal bouquets to offer a contrast to the navy blue bridesmaid dresses.  She also chose some choice blooms in cream and peach for reception centerpiece arrangements.

How Did This Groom Propose?

Luke and Erin ~ April 2014

Erin received a romantic surprise while vacationing with Luke’s family at their lake house in Michigan and while playing a game of golf with Luke’s brother and sister-in-law.  As the game progressed to the 7th hole, which was a beautiful spot overlooking the lake, Erin wondered what was going on as Luke’s brother played out of turn and rushed off the green leaving Luke to get down on one knee where he popped the question!!   Erin  joyfully accepted as Luke’s sister-in-law was capturing the entire scenario on video.  Erin was further surprised as they brought out champagne for all to celebrate the happy occasion!!
 Romantic Proposal
  Luke and Erin met at Wesleyan University and were friends for three years before having their first date at Destihl.  They currently both work in downtown Chicago; Luke as an attorney for government licensing and Erin in research at NYU.  Erin said she had been planning her wedding for four years pinning photos of her dream wedding to a secret Pinterest board.
 Peacock Wedding Colors
What is Luke and Erin’s advice to couples just getting engaged?  No other than a famous Chicago voting mantra, “start early and often”!!  First of all, get your date picked, then create a timeline check-off and get planning!   “All of our friends are getting married” Erin explains.  “We had 5 weddings to attend (including our own) in 7 weeks time from SW Michigan, Chicago to Boston, which made us very, very busy attending bridal showers and related events.  We were so glad that we had so much done for our wedding ahead of time.
Evelyn Chapel Wedding

The wedding was held at the Evelyn Chapel where Erin chose simple white containers of baby’s breath to complement the pristine beauty of the Chapel on the campus where they met.  Congratulations to this happy couple!

 Beautiful reception held at The Chateau Bloomington

The Chateau Bloomington

When we met with Luke and Erin, they had a clear idea of their vision for their wedding flowers.  By using the peacock feathers with the teal bridesmaid dresses, we decided on the rich deep shades of purple, magenta & blue with pops of fresh green to brighten and add contrast to the deeper colors for the bridal bouquets, boutonniere and reception centerpieces.  Erin wanted some of her reception centerpieces to be big, bold and over-the-top, so we created the tall arrangements with showy blooms to make a statement in the venue.

Shades Of Yellow And Grey Decorate This Wedding

First Look Is Bride’s Favorite Memory

Photographer  Sara Maurer took Sean and Amy to McGraw Park and captured the first look in front of this beautiful fountain.  When we asked Amy if she had a favorite memory from her wedding day, she explained it was hard to pinpoint because everything was just perfect but seeing her husband the first time really stands out!  She credits Sara for making them feel so comfortable that they could be perfectly natural in front of the camera.
First Look
Amy decided on her color scheme for her wedding when she was still in college.  She loved the shades of yellow and grey and how they complement each other.  She also felt it was something a little different than she had seen a lot of.  She found her biggest challenge in planning her wedding was second guessing herself as she would compare her wedding plans to all the weddings on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram and then want to make changes right up to the week before her wedding!!
Yellow and Grey wedding
Yellow and Grey Wedding Bouquet Bouquet Wrap
Because Amy’s grandfather died just two weeks before her wedding, she honored his memory by having her bouquet wrapped with one of his ties.
 Yellow and Grey Wedding Decor Reception Centerpiece Wedding Backdrop, Aisle decor
The wedding and reception were held at Doubletree in Bloomington where Kaitlin and her staff took care of all the details.  The wedding was in the courtyard and was decorated by Fancy Florals By Nancy with a decorated wedding arch, ferns, aisle runner and jars of flowers running the length of the aisle.  The tables were decorated with painted wine bottles filled with yellow and cream roses and dahlias and roses under wine glasses with votives on top.  Bojeannies provided various sizes of delicious cupcakes for her guests sweet tooth and Absolute Light and Sound provided a good time for everyone with their selection of songs.
