Mallory and Jeff tied the knot at Mallory’s church and had the reception at The Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms. In a stunning Pink Gold Illinois wedding, the two celebrated their love with their family and friends.
Pink Gold Illinois Wedding
“Mallory’s attire was a white wedding gown with a long, lace train. The back of the dress was sheer with pops of lace and buttons. The front had a high neck with modern lace. It was a tight fit, and I wore a veil with beading down the edges. I chose this look because it was both classic and modern at the same time. Mallory’s shoes were simple white heels and the only jewelry worn was her wedding ring and small dangling earrings. Jeff’s attire was a Michael Kors tuxedo. He wore all black and white to remain classic.”
“Mallory’s bouquet was white and pink peonies with eucalyptus greenery. Bridesmaid bouquets, groom’s, and grooms-men’s boutonnieres were all white ranunculus. Centerpieces were a variety of tall and short arrangements in clear vases. They were white and hot pink with peonies, hydrangeas, etc. and wooden sticks sticking out the top. The fireplace had greenery with white and pink flowers.”
“Our wedding cake was the whimsical part of the wedding. It was a three tier cake with white fondant that was painted with hot pink and gold metallic paint. It was painted in a “brushed” sort of way. It almost looked like watercolor. There were pink flowers in the center. The flavors were chocolate, lemon, and carrot.”
“We had triple chocolate donuts made by By the Dozen bakery. Each donut was in a clear bag with a tag tied on it that said “With love, Mallory & Jeff” that matched our invitations. These were a guest favorite! We got so many compliments on the donut the next day. Mallory loves sweets, which is why we went with this favor. A sign next to the donuts read, “Love is Sweet, Please Take a Treat.””
