landlocked bride® | midwest + mountain west wedding inspiration

plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country


I was sold on this wedding after I saw the stunning lace bridal gown, and the hints of baby’s breath (two personal favorites). I absolutely love the bridal party photos around the city of Chicago, and the photos of the bride and groom within the conservatory are breathtaking. Every detail looked flawless, and was documented beautifully. I love how the details of the venue were reflected in their unique, creative wedding cake, and how they incorporated travel details – a big part of their relationship – into the reception decor as well.

From the Bride

Keith and I met in our first week at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2003 (almost ten years ago!) through mutual friends on our way to a football rally. We ourselves were friends until we started dating during our senior year. We had a lot of common interests–such as the same music tastes, listening to and collecting records, hanging out at coffee shops, being outdoors, and our love of reading–but I think our relationship was firmly cemented in our love to travel. Our relationship started with a road trip to go camping in Missouri and in 2007 Keith and I took our first international trip together to Rome, Italy. It’s safe to say that we fell in love not only with the city, but we also fell in love with each other there. That’s why in 2010 on our third trip to Rome, Keith proposed on my favorite bridge, Ponte Sant’Angelo, while we were putting a lock on the bridge. We celebrated the occasion with an established tradition of Limoncello and Guinness in an “Irish Pub.” [He almost proposed in Munich on New Year’s Eve, but he held off in better judgement]. It was a great reflection of our relationship (and why our wedding had hints of our travels and Italy throughout) and it gave us a few days to enjoy being engaged before we told the masses!
