What could really be any better than knowing that your friend has found the love of her life? The only thing that almost tops such great news is when my friend asked me to follow her into an apple orchard and help capture that love!  We arrived at Royal Oak Farm Orchard just as the sun was starting to set and most of the patrons were starting to head out. It felt like we had the entire orchard to ourselves, which was amazing! I am so over the moon happy for Danny and Alise and cannot wait to be attending their  barn wedding soon!! Cheers to the happy couple!

Oswego, IL

This weekend I had the chance to visit the beautiful grounds and newly remodeled rustic barn at Emerson Creek Pottery and Tea Room in Oswego IL.  With lush views of farmland and working farms throughout the drive, when I pulled up to the space I felt like I was transported back to simple days and times. I meet with Zack, the Creative Director, who gave me the tour of the barn, tent, and grounds. Not only was he super friendly and helpful but he answered all my questions but he gave me a great feeling of the place. It’s nice  when venues work to accommodate your preferences on DIY decor, seating arrangements, and helping you create your vision for such a special day. If you are looking for a truly unique, rustic and romantic venue to celebrate your wedding day I highly recommend driving out to Oswego, IL to tour the grounds and then stop by the Tea Room for some lunch too!  Contact the events coordinator set up an appointment for a tour.  You’ll be glad you did!

Joe was working on a freelance job this weekend so he couldn’t make the trip out with me.  I’m excited to go back soon so he can see it all for himself in person. This might be the place!!
