We have such a pretty wedding to show off for you today!!!! Amy and Jason had the most beautiful wine and ivory rustic country wedding at Oak Hill Farms just outside of Galena. They had such a fun, laid back, sweet wedding day and we had so much fun with them and their families!
Amy and her ladies spent their morning hanging out together in one of the suites at Stoney Creek Inn near downtown Galena. They spent the morning laughing together and having fun before all the festivities started.
Meanwhile, Jason was down the hall having fun with his guys as they got ready for the day. When he was all dressed, he and Jeff zipped downtown to get in place for the first look.
After everyone was ready for the day, we all hopped on a party bus to go downtown. The wedding party hung out on the bus for a little bit so Jason and Amy could have a few private moments together.
This wedding party was full of fun and hilarious people that all got along together incredibly well. There was a lot of playful sarcasm and jokes shared among them during the photos.
Once we arrived on the property at Oak Hill, we stopped for a few photos in the picturesque fields. We loved these images!
Before we all knew it, it was time for the ceremony! Jason and Amy wanted a short and sweet ceremony so in all of 8 minutes they were married!!!
After the ceremony it was time for the cocktail hour. Amy spent a lot of time before their wedding day creating scoops and gathering containers for their Trail Mix bar which they put in the General Store building at Oak Hill. It was the perfect pastime for guests as they spent the hour sipping on drinks and milling about the property.
The kick off to the reception kept the fun theme of the day going and Amy and Jason were awed by funny yet heartfelt speeches from their wedding party before the meal began.
The day continued to fly by faster than all of us could imagine and it was soon time for dancing. Jason and Amy shared a first dance and then Amy shared a special dance with her dad.
After the dancing kicked off, we stole the couple away for a few sunset images. To say these turned out to be some of our favorites are an understatement! The image of them in the garden has already been featured once and it was such an awesome moment to see that happen not only for us, but as a tribute to the amazing day that Amy and Jason shared.
We ended the evening with a lot of zany dancing and hilarity from each of their guests. It was a night most won’t soon forget!
Amy and Jason, we are so glad we got to know the two of you and were able to be part of this day for you! You are an incredible couple and we are so happy for the future you two have together!
