All four of us bonded (Louise came too) on a road trip to Madison WI looking for special vintage pieces for the wedding. We laugh, talked about their love of horses (they are both equestrians) and jumped for joy like high school girls when we hit the jackpot at A La Crate Vintage Rentals.
This was to be a day for celebration and a day to showcase Laura's love of science/ all things nature and Evelyn's love of the victorian era. We baptized her wedding "Victoria meets flora and Fauna".
The wedding took place at Joliet's Patrick Haley Mansion, it was the perfect summer day and Laura was breath taking; it was more then the exquisite Alencon french silk lace gown , it was the pure joy, happiness and gratitude radiating from her never ending smile. She couldn't stop expressing her gratitude to everyone, so very sweet. Take a look at these amazing shots from Michael Whealan Photography.
Library book cards made by the bride were used as place cards and displayed in vintage sewing machine drawers.
Laura surprised Mike with a cigar roller, to celebrate his Cuban heritage and a silhouette artist made cut outs on the spot for guest's framed party favors.
