Real Weddings: Emily + Jeff

We love featuring EAD readers’ weddings! Emily and Jeff had a beautiful, elegant, and pretty pink wedding in Bloomington, Illinois. Big fat peonies, hydrangea, dahlias, astilbe…the gorgeous florals by Original Neipagen’s Flower Shop include some of my absolute favorites, I mean, check out those blooms! Sigh. I get butterflies every time I scroll through these photos from Simply Jessie Photography. Wait until you see Emily’s party-perfect reception dress and killer heels! A stunning and classic event that will always be in style.






Does this gorgeous escort card table look familiar? It was inspired by this!

    • Great photos, Jessie! Such great elements captured! I especially loved the wedding party in front of the ice cream parlor – great mix of classic looks. :-)

  1. What a beautiful and elegant wedding. I love the colors they used and the girls dresses were just darling. The lucky couple was so cute, and the wedding dress was out of this world. Best Wishes to the Happy Couple!!

    That church is crazy magnificent! And that photo captures it SO well, what a dream wedding shot! And the pic in front of Carl’s ice cream is great to. I love shots that pull in local hang outs, every wedding album should have a Carl’s photo :) love stamps Jennifer

    I’m a bridesmaid in my friends wedding and I’m searching for a dress that’s the exact same color as the one your ladies wore in your wedding. I’m having a hard time finding this particular color anywhere. I know you got them from jcrew but I can’t seem to find the same color. Do you know if any of your bridesmaids would be willing to sell one of their dresses? Or do you remember what the particular color was called from jcrew?

    Where were all of these pictures taken? Did you rent the tent? It’s gorgeous. Do tell! :)
