Real Wedding - Murphysboro, IL

I have another beautiful wedding to share with you today, this one with a green and yellow color palette (I swear I am not soliciting weddings that include green - it just works out that way!) Heather and Brent were married in Murphysboro, IL and Heather worked quite hard to put together a wedding that included all the details she wanted without breaking the bank. Heather lives out of state which made the challenge even greater, but I think you'll all agree that she did a great job.

Heather tried on "hundreds" of dresses before finding one that met all the right criteria. The dress she ultimately chose was by Casablanca - I absolutely love the lace and detailing. Her veil is made by Symphony Bridal, which she purchased to mimic the lace on her dress.
Since Brent is a pilot in the Air Force, the couple gave their wedding party aviator sunglasses as part of their "thank you" gifts. Such a great idea!
Heather attended Catholic School for eight years at the church she and Brent were married in. She no doubt played hopscotch outside the church as a little girl, which made for a perfect photo opportunity on her wedding day.
This beautiful necklace was Brent's wedding gift to Heather. Well done, Brent!
Heather ordered this adorable ring bearer pillow from Sweet B Papers on Etsy. The seller mailed Heather color swatches and she ultimately chose lime green dupioni silk.
The programs were also ordered from Etsy, some of them were in green damask and some were in yellow. The interior of the church that the ceremony was held in is truly so beautiful...
So cute - the little flower girl admiring her pomander made from miniature green mums. Heather found her dress at Target for under $20, and it matched the bridesmaids dresses perfectly.
Speaking of the beautiful bridesmaids, their dresses were from Alfred Angelo...
I always love a good moment of laughter during the ceremony. This picture was taken right in the middle of their vows, when Brent took Heather as his "awful wife" instead of his "lawful wife." Hilarious!
Have no fear, the little faux pas turned out just fine...
Check back later this afternoon for the rest of Heather and Brent's wedding pictures, including details from the ceremony!
