Whitney and Zach’s Coral and Grey Peoria, IL Wedding

One of my favorites parts about doing wedding photography is seeing all the cute details that come together to make a couple’s day special. One of those details is the wedding hashtag! Whitney and Zach’s wedding hashtag was #ItsAShelabration (Zach’s last name is Shelnick). Wedding hashtags really show the personality of a couple and set the tone for your wedding day!

Whitney and Zach’s day really was a “shelabration!” Their day was whimsical, rustic and elegant. They had their reception at the Warehouse on State in Peoria, IL.  The color scheme was beautiful. I love the coral colors that were incorporated in the bouquet and the shawls that the bridal party wore during their outside portraits. The other colors that were incorporated throughout the day on their invitations and decor were grey with lots of greenery. The grooms all wore matching coral and grey argyle socks.

The couple incorporated important traditions but also added current trends to make the day exactly how they wanted it. Whitney wrapped a piece of lace from her mother’s wedding dress around her bouquet; making it her something old and something borrowed! Whitney and Zach also decided to not do a first look, a trend then many couples are doing; they wanted to keep it traditional and see each other for the first time when Whitney walked down the aisle. Some fun new trends that they did take part in was incorporating a wedding hashtag! They also provided their guests with a unique wedding favor that showcased their personality; socks with the Ohio State Buckeye logo on them.
