Paige and Daniel had the perfect fall wedding day in Southern Illinois in late October. In the eyes of the bride, she had blinked and grown up from a little girl to a bride, there to experience her fairytale wedding day with her father, her family and most importantly, her groom by her side. Cheers to Paige and Daniel, and in the meantime, here’s a peek at some of the gorgeous details from their wedding day!

About the Big Day:
Paige and Daniel were married on October 19, 2013 at Orchardview Winery in Alma, Illinois. Their vintage chic wedding day was filled with creative personal touches perfectly suited for the bride and groom. Paige was a DIY bride who had the help of all of her bridesmaids, family and friends to make her dreams a reality when it came to the overall wedding décor. She had the help of these important people to assemble centerpieces and other decorations for the venue, and her dad and grandpa helped to build a lot of key pieces as well, including the freestanding doorway that lead the guests, and the bride, into the ceremony location and down the aisle to her prince charming. Paige’s favorite detail of the entire day was the arbor built out of old barn wood that stood behind the preacher during the wedding ceremony. Three strips of material hung from the arbor, and Paige and Daniel, along with their families, braided the strips together during the ceremony to represent their unity. Pins from Paige and Daniel’s college fraternity and sorority were carefully pinned to Paige’s bouquet.

During the reception, their wedding guests enjoyed a BBQ dinner followed by a night of fun and dancing. Paige and Daniel’s wedding day was a true representation of their relationship and their futures that they were soon to grow and build together. The two of them left for their honeymoon in Jamaica shortly after their wedding day, then came home and packed to head to their new home in England, where Daniel is stationed. The new Mr. and Mrs. have started their new journey together filled with love and adventure.
