How To Propose To Your Bride

May 10, 2016 | Spring Weddings

When Jimmy made plans to propose to Erica, he included his seven nieces and nephews in popping the big question.  He cleverly came up with the idea for each on of them to hold a sign with the seven magical words { Erica – Will – You – Marry – Our – Uncle – Jimmy?.}


How cute is that!!  And of course Jimmy knew there was no way Erica was going to say no to him and all those special neices and nephews.  What a fun surprise and of course Erica said YES!!


They say that March winds bring April showers – well there were no showers for this April 2, 2016 wedding but there sure were some mighty winds left over from March!  With wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour we are seriously amazed that S & J Maurer photography was able to capture these beautiful outdoor photos!!


Erica (Saathoff) Dehm teaches 5th grade at Westview Grade School in Fairbury, Illinois and Jimmy Dehm is known to many as he takes part in racing, so it was a must to go out to the Speedway (which is across the road from the school) for a photo.


Erica and Jimmy were married at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Gilman.  The reception was held at The Walton Center in Fairbury, Illinois.  Erica wanted bright and colorful flowers for her wedding bouquets to coordinate with the coral bridesmaid dresses.  Pictured below is the floral spray that decorated the head table by Fancy Florals By Nancy a Fairbury, Illinois wedding florist.


Erica rented several old jars from Old Oaks Vintage Rentals in Lexington, IL and Fancy Florals By Nancy filled the jars with bright flowers to coordinate with the wedding bouquets.


The grand staircase at The Walton Center makes a unique entryway all decorated up with vintage shredders which housed votive candles from Old Oaks Vintage Rentals.  Photography by Sara Maurer made a big announcement recently that they will not be photographing weddings anymore, but concentrating on the family & baby side of the business.  We will be sad not to be running into them as we deliver flowers at weddings and want to wish them the best as they continue to take great family photos!!


Nancy is absolutely fabulous to work with! There were many things that I felt like I worried about for the wedding, but the flowers were definitely not one of them! I met with her a few times before the wedding and she took a lot of time to sit and discuss different options with me to make my vision for my flowers perfect!  – Erica Dehm
