Andrea + Wes | Pear Tree Estate wedding | Champaign


Oh, man! Where do I start with this one?? Well, I cried. I tried to reign it in, but after Andrea + Wes were pronounced as man and wife and walked back down the aisle, the waterworks started! Andrea + I were roommates several years back where we had two great years together when we both were still single. :) A couple years down the road, Andrea met Wes and together they make a perfect duo. I knew from the get-go that Andrea would have a dream wedding, and once I arrived at Pear Tree Estate, I could clearly see how her vision had come together. It all started with her amazing custom sapphire art deco wedding ring which was the inspiration for the whole event. The theme was art deco meets old Hollywood with a navy and gold color scheme. Everything was executed to perfection, down to Andrea's one-of-a-kind satin gown with criss-cross beading across the bodice, and her long wavy brunette hairstyle with a sparkly hairpiece. Wes looked dapper in his gray suit with white tie, brown shoes and Chicago Bulls cufflinks. My favorite detail was the navy sequined tablecloths which really made all the table details and centerpieces come to life off the tables. Surrounded by family + friends, they dined on the most delicious dishes, cut a gorgeous cake, and danced the night away to their favorite music. I'm so, so happy for you both, and look forward to watching your next life chapter unfold!
