Midlane Country Club: Fireworks a Hit at this Wedding Reception

It was a beautiful, sunny day for the wedding of Vanessa and Matt. Midlane Country Club  located in Wadsworth, IL was the destination of this reception that was decorated colorfully in soft pink and green tones. The banquet room was filled with tables waiting to host guests while the bridal party, bride, and groom sat facing their guests and allowed a peak to the golf course through the window behind them.

As guests entered the reception, they were greeted with appetizers and drinks, along with photo opportunities provided by Photo Booth Express. Similar to how we classically remember photo booths to be, guests were encouraged to take pictures throughout the evening in a larger booth that would hold 8-10 people and  then paste the photo strip into a scrapbook that Photo Booth Express provided. Guests were also given a copy of the photo strip to take home, as well as retrieve their pictures complimentary from an online gallery within a couple days of the event. For the scrapbook, glitter and paint pens were provided to write special love notes or words of wisdom to the bride and groom. 

My favorite part of the evening was when the bride and groom had their first dance in front of their head table and the glass window overlooking the golf course. As they danced, fireworks shot off from behind them outside and poured down from what seemed like the sky. A few moments later each table centerpiece also erupted with sparklers which caught guests pleasantly, by surprise. What a fun and unique idea that this venue offered to enhance the celebration!

Elegant and soft dinner music was provided by Jay Congdon of Fourth Estate Audio. Music selections continued throughout the evening; Jay kept the dance floor full of guests including the bride and groom who were moving it and shaking it all night long. Beautiful photography was taken by Elizabeth Jochum of Cornerstone Photography.  

Congratulations Vanessa and Matt!
