Chelsea and Zack are the kind of people you want to keep in your back pocket! They are kind, appreciative, and go above and beyond to make you feel wanted. I met Chelsea through her bridesmaid, Erica, and since our initial meeting she has been the sweetest! Sending little texts just to say hi, leaving rave reviews, stopping to visit, and always, always full of compliments! Their wedding day was full of timeless joy, sweet emotion, and carefree fun! Their decor and florals were stunning, but nothing came close to their ease with each other and determination to make the day not just about a wedding, but a marriage! However, details did not go unnoticed, Chelsea hand embroidered a handkerchief for Zack, the table numbers were made by the father of the bride from wood that belonged to Chelsea’s grandfather, their card box was passed down three generations, and the vases used for centerpieces were Chelsea’s grandma’s that couldn’t attend their wedding. So many thoughtful and personal touches!
Riverview Gardens set an excellent tone for their relaxed August wedding. An outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour on the patio, and views of the Fox River did not disappoint. And a sweet surprise came after dinner when Chelsea and Zack announced there was an ice cream truck waiting outside! The Knotted Cone Gelato Co. blew everyone away. The couple even got to make a custom flavor of gelato for their guests to enjoy. You’ll definitely want to scroll all the way to the end to see what I’m talking about!
