Jackie and Jeremy’s love story began as freshman at Augustana College. Their relationship started off as best friends and soon grew into something special. By senior year they officially started dating, and six years later Jeremy popped the question.

Jackie said, “Of course I cried and said yes! We stayed up all night talking about how we get to officially be together forever.”

Jackie wore Steve by Made With Love Bridal. The gorgeous lace on her gown matched perfectly with the outdoorsy feel of the wedding.

Jackie said her most memorable moment was when she and Jeremy did their first look. They read their personal vows to each other and in that moment it was truly just the two of them.

The two wed at The Monte Bello Estate in Illinois. The bride had a romantic and whimsical wedding theme in mind with a more natural, nature look.

 They were married under a beautiful arch woven with white flowers amongst hundreds of blossoming trees. The aisle was sprinkled with roses, a violinist and guitar player played in the background, and there was a wagon for the ring bearers to ride in. The little details truly made their wedding come to life.

They added a alternative twist to their tradition wedding with the signing of a shotski instead of a guest book. 

A character artists was also added to draw portraits and to make the guests laugh all night long.

Jackie stated happily, “It seriously was the best day of our lives! Not only because it was a fantastic party, but because Jeremy and I are officially bound forever”.

So, so happy for you Jackie and Jeremy! It has been an absolute pleasure to have been a part of your special day!
