early fall intimate wedding at Elawa Farm in Lake Forest | Chicago, IL

Elawa Farm in August is simply heaven. The entire scape is in full bloom, with yellows and pinks and every color in between. Elizabeth and Bob knew exactly what they were doing when they booked their intimate wedding ceremony there earlier this month!

The guests were seated in the pleasant allée that runs through the property, flanked by sweet cherub statues, making the perfect view for the guests and groom to see the bride make her way from the farm buildings toward them (why doesn't everyone walk toward their guests and the groom? Brilliant!).

After the sweet civil ceremony, all the guests gathered for champagne and truffles in the garden, while the couple walked the property alone, before heading for a private dinner in Lake Forest. A dreamy day!
