We’re so excited to introduce you to Emily, our amazing new wedding planning intern! If you worked with us recently, you’ve seen her around – organizing escort cards, checking table counts, and so much more. We’re thrilled to have her on board and can’t wait for you to get to know her better.
So I’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of these photos in my inbox. Ryanne + Kevin were married in May at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, Illinois. It was a party of epic proportions that was preceded by a bit of chaos. The park was exactly their vision: a totally rustic barn surrounded with wide open space. Kevin + Ryanne did so much themselves: sweeping out the barn, hanging lights and they really rolled with the punches when it rained all week and we had to move the ceremony inside at the last minute. Also, they were totally cool when the sheep crashed the party and ordered gin and tonics. And then there’s this picture with this horse, which I think tends to make up for most of the pre-wedding chaos. I’m pretty sure the only thing that could have made this photo better is if that horse were a magic wedding unicorn. I almost wouldn’t have been surprised.
Not bad for a makeshift ceremony site 30 minutes before the wedding? Thank God for amazing vendors like Heather at Events By Bloom and the indelible Ronald Roberts for jumping in and putting this together with me so that we could wait until the very last second in hopes that the rain would clear.
Truly an unforgettable wedding day and a fabulous story for the Anticipation Events archives. I could not have more fun with you two and I hope your happily ever after is filled with as many outrageously funny stories and adventures as your wedding day was.
