Illinois farm wedding: Leslie + Lloyd

Categories   Real Weddings

Walnut, IL farm wedding

Recreating a childhood memory really is a good theme to entertain a wedding. Especially when you can schedule out an entire day of petting zoo fun, fishing and a personal bluegrass concert. When Leslie realized that playing home run derby, riding tractors and camping on the farm were some of her best memories, she decided to do it up in Illinois. With well over 100 in attendance, a rad customized flag with their names in calligraphy, pig races, an incredible corn field ceremony, and the lovely Heidi of Our Labor of Love there to capture it all, Leslie + Lloyd succeeded.

Leslie’s cousin, Erica Loesing aka one of our favorite designers, created all the hand-painted signs (including that flag!), escort cards, and table numbers.

Leslie’s mom is an amazing decorator, so all the tablecloths, vases, china, and items in the vignettes came from her collection, found at antique malls and flea markets in Illinois.

Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!

Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Hi There! Where was the venue? It is so pretty.. my guess it was probably a family farm and thereby not open to lil ol me, lol.
