The weather was truly on Heather & Shane’s side as they were getting ready on the morning of their wedding – a late October wedding when the sun is shining and the trees are showing their most beautiful colors of the year. Heather’s cascading bouquet perfectly captured all the Fall colors reflected in nature. This was exactly what these two had envisioned when they planned their intimate wedding. Heather and Shane are fortunate to have close friends of theirs offer up their property to host the event. The large yard that backed up to a forest preserve was the perfect backdrop for the exchange of their self-written vows.
As the sun dipped below the horizon and the air began to turn a little cooler, the guests shuffled inside for a warm reception – complete with one of the most delicious charcuterie spreads I have ever seen. Heather and Shane bounced between friends and family, giving hugs and chatting about what a beautiful day it was. These two topped off the evening with a romantic first dance in the living room. Best of luck Heather and Shane, it was magical being a part of your wedding celebration.
Please enjoy a few of our favorite moments.
A special thanks to all the vendors who made Heather & Shane’s day beautiful.
