Beautiful Backyard Wedding, Joel & Emily, Northfield IL
Joel and Emily, you two how I feel about you two. Truly, obsessed.
Emily’s dream was a wedding in her Aunt and Uncle’s beautiful backyard with her closest friends and family. Well Em, you did it! Overall, your actual wedding day may have been even more perfect than your dreams.
Between Sarah of Cheers! Chicago coordinating, Big Star Catering + The Fat Shallot food trucks, your Alexandra Grecco (Alice in Ivory) wedding dress and the beautiful florals (Lyssco Designs) that complimented the yard; it was absolutely perfect.
While every single detail was incredible, the love that Joel and Emily share topped it all. I remember having to look away and distract myself when hearing Emily read Joel’s love letter to her in the morning. I had to do the same thing when listening to her grandmother share a reading during their ceremony.
Joel and Emily, thank you for including me in the best day of your lives. Love you both!
