Katelin and Justin were married in the bride’s parent’s backyard in Mulberry Grove, Ill. last summer. “We were inspired by the location of our wedding,” Katelin said. “My parents property is absolutely beautiful. The old barn brings such a great rustic feel, and the pond and waterfall that my parents built along with all of the flowers they planted made it feel even more romantic.” The bride wore her mother’s vintage wedding gown, accessorized with a pair of amethyst stud earrings, while the groom wore a light gray suit, accessorized with a striped tie. “I wanted all of the flowers in our wedding to look like wildflowers,” she said. “My bouquet was freshly-picked and was hand-tied with burlap and a patterned scarf.” Before the ceremony, the couple opted for a private first look. “It was such an intimate moment that I am glad we were able to share with one another,” she said. Guests were greeted with a chalkboard sign that said, “As two families become one, we ask that you choose a seat not a side.” A tree planting was performed to symbolize their unity too. “The ceremony was perfect,” Katelin said. “It was so amazing for us to have all of those we love most be a part of our wedding day.” The reception was held underneath a tent. Tables were decorated with white linens, wood slice candles, and mason jar centerpieces complete with dried arrangements. The newlyweds performed their first dance to “More Than Life” by Whitley and spent the night in a teepee! See the full board here.
