Our Wedding Day – Part 3

This is the last post from my wedding day series, last but certainly not least.  This post is all about the vendors we hired to make our day PERFECT.  And perfect it was.  We got to know our vendors so well over the course of planning and we were so lucky to have them with us on our wedding day.  If you missed the first two parts of the wedding day series, you can read them here (part 1 & part 2)

Our ceremony was at my family’s church.  The colors in the church are a little dark and masculine.  I added flowers and drapery to soften the look.



We had the BEST time on the limo bus from the ceremony to the reception!  Peoria/Midstate Limo provided us with awesome service and a killer party bus!!!


We toured over 5 different reception venues when planning and we ended up choosing Metamora Fields Golf Club for our reception.  I loved the simple and classic look of the ballroom.  The chandeliers are stunning!!! I knew it would be perfect for my romantic and feminine theme.

After the wedding, we couldn’t believe the amount of compliments we received about the food at the reception and the amazing service by all of the staff.  We are so thankful for all they did – they sure know how to help throw a party!!!!

The golf course is beautiful for taking pictures, as well!!

So, my two must-have items on my wedding day were: LOTS of flowers and a band at the reception.  Well, and great photos, but isn’t that on everyone’s must-have list?!!!

Our wedding band, Patrick N Swayze, was AMAZING!!!! They seriously had the dance floor packed all night long and that is exactly what we wanted!!  The best part, the wedding party ended up on the stage with them by the end of the night… luckily our photographer was gone by then;)

 Our florist, Splendor of Eden, is unbelievably talented.  She creates the most beautiful garden inspired bouquets and arrangements.  I was so lucky to have her, I gave her my ideas and she ran with them.  Making our day more beautiful than I could’ve ever imagined.

All pictures are by our amazing and talented Photographer, Jarod, from Schilling Photography!  He is so fun to work with and the pictures are all stunning!! Not to mention we got them back 5 days after the wedding!!:)  If you want to take it way back, you can find our engagement pictures here!!

Our videographer, Ben Fout, put together this sweet wedding film trailer for us! We can not wait to see the full video!!!
