Coral & Navy Summer Barn Wedding | Engelbrecht Farm| Paxton, IL

Oh Jake and Jackie's wedding day was filled with such beauty, emotion and love.  From meeting them for the first time at Monical's in Paxton, to their engagement session (which you can see here) and communicating with them via Snapchat we've been so excited for their wedding day. And last Saturday, the day finally arrived and when we arrived at Engelbrecht Farmstead the finishing touches were being taken care of for a wedding day the two of them, or anyone present, would forget anytime soon.  They had baby's breath wreaths on the barn doors, cigar bar, his and her specialty cocktails, one of a kind 3-D metal signs hanging behind the head table that spelled out their name, florals that were breathtaking in the bouquets and a variety of flowers in the jars on the reception tables, including Peonies.  We wouldn't complain if Peonies bloomed year round.  Can we get an amen?!

While visiting this week from North Carolina, we took some time to take the portraits she always dreamt of having. Thank you to The Beautiful Blooms Co. for creating a beautiful bouquet for us to use!
