Heritage Prairie Farm Wedding – Colette & Andrew

Colette and Andrews wedding of blues and yellows featured calla lilies and phalaenopsis, some of the best neighbourhoods in Chicago, and even a serenade by Kieth Semple from season 9 of The Voice. Colette wore a satin gown by Allure Bridal, and all her girls wore bright blue dresses with a unique triangle cutout. The guys went bold with lilies on the lapel and yellow bow ties with yellow matching socks.
The reception was decorated with so many whimsical touches, with the tables that were set with a variety of vintage farm plates and guests were able to find their tables named after popular Chicago neighbourhoods. The sweetheart table was named after the South Loop because that is the neighbourhood where Colette and Andrew met. Also, the table layout was designed, so the southernmost neighbourhoods started at the sweetheart table, and then each table matched their correct locations as you head north in the city with the most northern neighbourhood ending at the DJ booth.
Jars filled with sliced lemons were scattered throughout the party, and all the guests went home with a specially gifted jar of honey from the farm. The sweets table was courtesy of the famous Stans Doughnuts in Chicago, Illinois. The simple but very decadent wedding cake was a special gift from their Aunt Lou who continued the family tradition and supplied the homemade peanut butter delicacy. Their talented musician friend, Kieth Semple, showed up to play a fantastic first dance song called “Take Me Home”.
