Stephanie and Mark chose The Narnia Estate in Lemont for the location of their wedding ceremony and reception. Nestled deep within 30-acres of wooded American oak trees, the Narnia Estate is “adorned with murals and antique furnishings from around the world” (The Narnia Estate, 2011).
The bride and groom began their evening exchanging personal and handwritten vows that they shared in front of family and friends. Following the ceremony guests enjoyed appetizers and cocktails while the reception was undergoing last minute touches.
Underneath an enclosed white tent, deep purple and teal were the colors of choice for the reception. Tables were dressed in matching linens while tea-light candles and matching orchids acted as centerpieces for the tables. Gold bamboo chairs lined the tables and gave off an elegant feel to the room.
The DJ for the evening was a family friend named Charlie. Charlie played a wide array of music including classical and jazz during dinner, and then a mix of pop and country during the dancing portion of the reception.
The photo booth provided by Photo Booth Express out of Schaumburg, was busy snapping pictures all night. A guest photo album was also provided for guests to leave a copy of their picture while also able to take a copy immediately home.
The ceremony and wedding reception were full of love, friendship, and fun. Best of luck to Stephanie and Mark!
