Bird Haven Greenhouse Wedding – Jessica & Daniel

Jessica and Daniel’s wedding took place on one of the prettiest days in the Midwest last summer. They have a romantic love story and their big day was filled with romance, joy, laughter, and lots of fairy lights. Their colour scheme was champagne mixed with floral bouquets of roses and baby’s breath. Elegant and timeless.

Daniel proposed to Jessica in a way that no girl could refuse. We won’t go into full detail, but you get the idea if we say that it involved Jessica coming home from work and seeing a trail of rose petals leading up to a selection of different dresses laid out for her to pick from. Following this, there were a couple more notes telling her to get dressed and have a drink. Then a white Rolls Royce car showed up to whisk her off to Daniel at the harbour. When she arrived, he had white fairy lights, candles, and music playing on the boat dock. He proposed right there, and of course, she said yes!

Their wedding day took place outdoors at the Bird Haven Greenhouse in Illinois. Daniel waited beneath the floral arch as his bride came out the greenhouse to marry her prince charming. Jessica wore a full birdcage veil paired with an elegant crystal jacket worn over her fitted silk gown. The wedding ceremony was full of romantic tales of the couple. Daniel said, “I love the way you take those stickers off my apples when you make my lunch.”.

After the ceremony, they had some beautiful family photos taken, and then they went for a stroll through the greenhouse for a few quiet moments between the two of them. Big, orange trumpet flowers filled one side of the room. It looks like a perfect afternoon.

Their tented reception was held in Daniel’s parent’s backyard where the caterers prepared and grilled all of the food in the yard as the guests drank cocktails, listened and danced to music, and had fun with the fairy light selfie station. After introductions, guests were treated to a motivational speech by a Chris Farley impersonator and a Mexican feast. Jessica and Daniel had their favorite cake from Portillo’s for dessert and then danced the night away.
