Sara and Ben were married at Sycamore’s beautiful Blumen Gardens. Their vision was a rustic chic wedding with a pastel palette of blush, champagne, gray, and gold. Wild Orchid Custom Floral Design nailed it with organic florals in shades of blush. A relaxed Sarah Seven gown, elegant Badgley Mischka heels, and dewy makeup by Total Image Bridal made for a classic and sophisticated bridal look. Photography by Rachael Schirano Photography.
Ben and Sara both attended the University of Illinois. Sara was a lifeguard at the Urbana Aquatic Center, and one summer day, Ben came into the center wearing swim trunks and her sorority’s t-shirt. They became fast friends! During Ben’s junior year, he studied abroad, and with both distraught at the absence, they knew it was meant to be!
