Kristyna & Trevor
Acquaviva Winery, Maple Park, IL
This traditional wedding, in a rustic vineyard setting, featured bright pops of red and wine colors amid lavish bouquets.
Kristyna and Trevor opted for a fairly traditional wedding with 150 guests and a Catholic service at Our Lady of Mercy. The bride said yes to a Demetrios mermaid-style wedding dress featuring a beaded bodice, lace sleeves and a lace-detailed sheer back she found on sale at Macy’s. Her bridesmaids wore different styles of wine-colored dresses. The bride carried a full bouquet with lots of greenery from a family friend who created lavish bouquets for the bridesmaids as well.
Kristyna admits she snagged her photographer, Salde Codillo, from a friend’s wedding because he was so easy to work with and made everyone comfortable during photos. And because the couple started out directionless when it came to décor, Boho Blush saved the day with an abundance of ideas that helped tie the wedding together.
Upon arriving at Acquaviva Winery, which emanated a rustic vineyard appeal, guests selected from a steak, chicken or salmon entrée, alongside a wine service with dinner. The Sugar Path provided a variety of desserts — from chocolate-covered strawberries to mini cupcakes with unique flavors like honey lavender to tiny pies and lemon bars — plus a fun churro-flavored wedding cake, which was a hit. The couple gave away Garrett Popcorn party favors from Chicago to bring a little bit of the city (where they got engaged) to the vineyard.
From the bride:
“Guests always talk about the food at weddings. Find a venue that has great food. My guests could not get over how great their meals were for ‘wedding food.’ And my smartest savings were renting decorations. It was $250 to rent all my decorations from Boho Blush and it truly made my wedding come together.”
