#adorerealbride // Lauren & Alec // Mt Vernon Woodsy Wedding

March 9, 2018

We love this gorgeous wedding that took place in Mt. Vernon, IL. Here are some words from Lauren:

I could not have imagined a more perfect day! The entire thing was wonderful! I moved to Peoria when my future husband got a job here, a few months later he took me to my favorite spot on grand view drive and told me how happy he was that I had moved here and couldn’t wait to spend the rest of his life with me. That’s when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! From there we both had a lot of fun planning, organizing, and putting together our dream wedding. If I have any advice it would be just enjoy the process!!! It flies by. We got married in my home town of Mt. Vernon in southern Illinois at the church my parents were married at in front of beloved friends and family. The entire day was just a dream filled with all the love, laughs, and memories we could have ever imagined. We truly are two of the luckiest people on earth!

Tell me about the most special memory of your wedding day.

I couldn’t begin to pick one memory, from being surrounded by so much love from those we care about to having my flowers wrapped in the sleeve of my late mom’s wedding dress the entire day was filled with love, support and fun!

So now, about that dress, tell us what that most important thing was for you and how your time was at Adore.

Adore was everything I could have asked for!!! I have raved about all of you every chance I get! Andrea could not have been more perfect. She tuned in to exactly what I wanted and took a risk which just so happened to be my dream dress. The minute I put it on I felt at home!!

What do you admire most about your husband?

Alec is the most compassionate person I’ve ever met, he sees the best in everyone and loves me unconditionally.

Thanks for sharing a bit about your day, Lauren!!
