Cassie + Lisa
The LincolnWay Inn Franklin Grove, Illinois
Have you ever met a couple, and their love just radiated? Like, seriously, was almost contagious because it was so genuine, sincere, and true? I have never met a couple with the kind of love that Cassie and Lisa show towards each other, not only when they are together, but even when they are just talking about each other.Cassie and Lisa are a perfect love story, blending two separate families, and creating one. Cassie and her son Kayden, Lisa and her daughter Kendall have created a perfect family that blended together to become one.Cassie is a police dispatcher, and Lisa is a teacher. They met at their favorite activity, Kettlebell (it even reflected in their vows!)
Being by their side for 10 months of planning a wedding, I got to not only know the girls individually, but together, and you couldn't ask for two better people to be creating a life together.They chose the Lincolnway Inn Bed & Breakfast as the setting for their wedding, and it truly reflected their style. Cassie grew up in Franklin Grove in fact, so it brought in the ties of her life growing up in a small town, that paired perfectly with the rustic theme of the wedding (paired with Lisa's glam style seen in various touches of the decor such as the silver sparkle mason jars, and the table linens chosen for the cake table)
Every detail of their wedding was a part of the girls. The white roses you see on the mantle for the ceremony, and at the sweetheart table, are very special to each of them as a white rose is their flower for each other. The bouquets and other floral arrangements were made DIY by Cassie's mom, and this is something that she has done for each of her daughters weddings. The shoes the girls wore even had notes for each other.
