Real Parties – Ashley & Matt married 11/2/2013

Ashley and Matt are an adorable couple that got married this past fall at Williams Tree Farm in Rockton, IL, and our first real parties feature. These two were photographed by a talented photo team Matthew Rohrer and Caroline Dodd of MRohrer Photo.

We asked Ashley to tell us about her favorite moment of the day and this is what she shared with us…

“It’s hard to pick just one! There are two that really stand out.

Many of the elements of our wedding were contributions from our loved ones. For example, The Williams Family are very dear friends, who went out the the way to host such a memorable day for us. My cousin created hand-painted signage, the cake was made by one bridesmaid, our flowers were expertly arranged by a family friend, the guestbook and invitations were designed by another bridesmaid (Claren of – we even had home-brewed beer!

After the ceremony, we ventured away from the lodge and into the surrounding forest for photos with our bridal party. It was a really special time to get away from the buzz and excitement, to reflect and bond with our best friends!

I also loved seeing the amount of family and friends from both sides and of all ages, making connections with each other. Like college friends meeting grandparents! Being able to reconnect with friends and family (and some that traveled as far as Florida, Texas, North Carolina, and California!) just made it really special.”





We love the rustic details of the day combined with really unique elements. The combination of bridesmaid dresses were unique and interesting, and matched the personality of each bridesmaid. At the end of the night,  the talented couple surprised their guests by serenading them. What a talented, sweet couple!


Ashley and Matt were one of the first couples to feature custom designed can coolers from yours truly! We also worked closely with them to develop the perfect custom invitations, menus and of course cocktail napkins. We are thrilled that Ashley and Matt included us in their beautiful, elegant, special day!
