Stone Quarry Recreational Park in Byron, Illinois. Threats of heavy rains and tremendous winds forced the couple to change their ceremony location from the Wedding Canyon in Oregon, Illinois to their reception site at the park.
The ceremony took place at 7:30 p.m. in the main barn. Guests were seated in a delightfully decorated room with small vignettes gracing every nook and corner. Each vignette highlighted the life this beautiful couple has shared thus far with small treasures and photos, illuminating promise of many more years of wedded bliss to come.
Small birds were tucked throughout the decor as a symbolic presence of Hannah's late Grandmother. Through this gesture and a small locket fastened to the bride's bouquet, one can be sure that her Grandmother was with Hannah every step of the way.
Vintage Sweets Shop and Baked Goods tables provided a vast array of decadent handmade candies, caramels, marshmallows and cupcakes. Teas, lemonades, and juices were also provided, as well as popcorn and chocolate dipped pretzels.
