We are one day into “summer 2017” and we cannot be more excited. When you think of a summer wedding, bright bold colors typically comes to mind, which is why we thought Heather and Ryan’s wedding was perfect to share. They have that great summer color palette, including bright blues and with pops of brilliant yellow.
Heather and Ryan chose the Danada House to host their wedding at. The Danada House was originally where the 1965 Kentucky Derby winner, Lucky Debonair, lived during the years he trained and competed. This derby charm still sits on 230 acres of beautiful land, which makes for the perfect secluded and romantic venue for a wedding.
Heather and her best friends spent the morning getting ready in the upper level of the Danada House. She loved the feeling of getting ready in “a home”; it made her feel very relaxed and at ease while the wedding butterflies were getting more and more obvious.
You cannot beat this reaction! The happy couple chose to do a “first look” because they wanted to get most of the pictures taken prior to the ceremony, and yes Ryan was very excited to see Heather! Because the venue was a one-stop-shop, this allowed them to enjoy the entire cocktail hour, and rest of the evening, with their guests.
You would never be able to tell, but Heather and Ryan joined a baby boy, Sullivan, to their family a few weeks before the wedding. Sullivan’s godmother strolled her down the aisle to meet Dad at the front!
After JUST finishing the ceremony, a torrential downpour began. Feeling lucky, the guests watched the rain from the windows. We love to think that just means good luck for the bride and groom!
Heather is a Blackhawks fan, and Ryan is a Wings fan. It has always been friendly competition and a great conversation piece among their friends. They both had their last names added to their respective sports team jersey, and used those as a guest book. Now, they will forever have the people they love most, on the team they love most!
Guests began entering the reception room, at the same time the sun began to shine. It was such a nice entrance because the room is an atrium, completely surrounded in glass windows. The main colors of the evening was bright blue and yellow. All we could do was smile with such a happy color palette.
