I’m so excited to share images from a recent wedding we did that took place at Smith’s Central Garage in McHenry, which was obviously the PERFECT location since the newlyweds had a romantic, rustic-inspired wedding! Zach and Marissa thought this thing through from beginning to end, and there wasn’t a shortage of dreamy, Pinterest-worthy moments.
We asked Marissa what made this venue “the one”!
Marissa got ready with the bridesmaids at her father house in McHenry while Zach and his groomsmen at Holiday Inn in Crystal Lake.
Marissa said that she purchased this from David’s Bridal, and I don’t think she could have chosen a more flattering gown. Do you?
What made the day really special to you?
The Ceremony took place in Veteran’s Memorial Park right by the wedding venue.
Soon after the ceremony, we took the bridal party by Fox River for a short wedding photo session.
We will never grow tired of rustic weddings, especially when they’re done so impeccably like this one. Congratulations again on your wedding, you two, and may your years be filled with happiness and plenty of mason jars!
