Emily & Jeff had a lovely, elegant wedding despite the rainy day in Bloomington Illinois.  Remember their modern downtown Chicago Engagement? Their wedding took place in Emily's hometown and had so many details steeped in family tradition.  They were married in the same church as her grandparents and held the reception at the same place as her parents. The whole day oozed elegance with hints of fun and girly whimsey.

Emily and Jeff stopped for ice cream & hot dogs on the way to the reception with their bridal party!  It was so much fun!

We then headed to the beautiful grounds of Bloomington Country Club for a few with the bridal party and some time with the newlyweds. I love the color of the bridesmaids dresses!

The outdoor reception decor was unbelievably elegant, classic with a hint of girliness. The billowy tent fabric, florals and perfect color palette was put together for a soft sophisticated look.
