Ryan and Jackie got married on July 6 in Lemont, Illinois. The bride is a DYI queen, and put little touches on every detail in the wedding to make it both rustic and romantic. Lemont has a small town, country feel only about 30 miles southwest of Chicago. Jackie nailed it with her custom mason jars, and Ryan’s grandmother’s handmade beautiful centerpieces. Jackie and Ryan made a BIG entrance to their reception at Cog Hill Golf Course in a Blackhawks decorated helicopter! They got a VIP flight around downtown Lemont and landed on the green to greet their guests. The entire day was filled with love, but my favorite was the surprise that came after the bride and groom’s first dance. Jackie’s ENTIRE family knew to step onto the dance-floor to Michael Jackson’s Thriller, where eventually most of the guests joined in on!
