Stephanie & Adam

by | Nov 1, 2022 | Real weddings

The stars and planets must have aligned for our featured couple Stephanie and Adam because it was a perfect day for their mostly outdoor celebration. ⁠The challenge of living in the Chicago area is often the unpredictable weather! Engaged couples dreaming about having an outdoor wedding know they better have a plan B. Fortunately, the ceremony and reception were able to take place under the sun and stars at the stunning Monte Bello Estate. The venue overlooks one of the largest wildflower preserves in the state of Illinois. As the pictures will prove, nature and love was in full bloom for the newlyweds! 

The beautiful bride Stephanie, wore an exquisite couture gown from our designer Sottero and Midgley.  This wedding dress is a luxurious crepe fabric with illusion lace side cutouts. The ultra modern halter neckline with illusion sequin lace edging has a high scoop back with covered buttons and an illusion lace scalloped train.  

The bridesmaids wore latte colored dresses with lace bodices from our designer MoriLee Collection. The soft neutral hue of the gowns made the spectacular floral bouquets pop.  The pretty, flowing A-line dresses were comfortable, flattering and made for dancing.  

Enjoy the photo inspiration of this gorgeous real wedding!
