Mike + Jessica | Engelbrecht Farms | Paxton, IL
The weather couldn't have been more beautiful for Mike and Jessica's wedding this past Saturday. And can we talk about the location they chose for a minute? As a couple who owns horses and lives in the country themselves, Mike and Jessica couldn't have picked a better venue for their wedding to represent who they are and what they love. The main barn, originally a milking parlor, where the reception was held was built in 1948 on a farm that was established in the late 1800's. The owners of Engelbrecht Farms did an amazing job of restoring the barn while keeping its original charm and character. Renting the farm for your wedding reception, you're not only able to use the barn but the attached loafing shed and have full use of the home on the property for the entire weekend as well.
The gown Jessica wore was absolutely stunning and the casual look of the groom was perfect. It was truly a one of a kind wedding with all the details Jessica designed and created herself. And any bride who does cartwheels in her wedding dress gets two thumbs up from us! From Jessica's dad leading her on a horse to the barn before walking her down the aisle all the way to the sparkler send off at the end of the evening, the day was magical.
Mike and Jessica, we hope you are enjoying your first week as newlyweds. Have fun looking through these images and reliving your first day as Mr. and Mrs.
