When "home" is a private estate outside of Chicago, it's a no-brainer to have an at-home wedding. The family horse farm was the perfect venue for this fun duo to create their dream day — complete with an all-night dance party thanks to Toast & Jam and endless fun with Smilebooth. And thanks to Averyhouse's gorgeous photography, we have lots pretty for you to explore in The Vault!
From Averyhouse...If the thought of a tented backyard wedding complete with a horse stable, wild flower arrangements, and the perfect Summer breeze makes you gush with excitement then Lauren + Nick’s wedding is right up your alley. We got to know Lauren + Nick during their Oak Park Engagement Session when these two made the big move from Chicago to their new home together. Nothing gets us more excited for a wedding then when we know our client’s unique style is such a great fit with ours. Nick had mentioned to us that the wedding would be on his family’s private estate and we really had no idea what to expect. From Lauren’s perfectly whispy gown for her outdoor affair to their pastel color palette we couldn’t help but share these beautiful details with all of you. With some sunshine above, but rain on the forecast these two had a simple + sweet ceremony followed by custom cocktails (and local beers) on the lawn. Not to mention some mouth watering hors d’ oeuvres for guests to pick on before being led to a white tent adorned with locally farmed flowers planted just for their wedding. With Toast & Jam keeping the dance floor packed and Smilebooth to document all of the late night shenanigans we’ll be dreaming about this unique tented wedding for years to come.
