Hilary & Josh say I Do

Josh laid eyes on Hil in college and after each making professional accomplishments all over the world, they reconnected, fell in love, and planned their October wedding to be held on her family’s farm outside of Mt. Vernon, Illinois. The big day, 10-11, was very “Midwest Roots meets Southern Charm” and there were plenty of personal touches. Hil & Josh are detail oriented people and wanted guests to feel relaxed, comfortable, and most of all, to have fun celebrating their love.

The day started with Hil & her bridesmaids getting a private yoga session on her family property. The custom tanks read “Namaste, Y’all.” You know a bride has hired a planner and is very chill when she’s able to enjoy a relaxing yoga sesh hours before she laces up her white dress.

Next it was time for hair, make-up, and Eminence Events to come in and pull everything together. You know I said there were details, all centered around the season. Pumpkins, gourds, hydrangeas & roses galore. My favorite part was the altar that framed the spot where the couple would share their vows privately. This backdrop was created as a custom graphic for the wedding invites. I LOVE when couples are thoughtful and tie everything together.
