A Rustic Winery Wedding at CD & ME in Frankfort, Illinois
Elysa Korosic (25 and a sales administrator) and Paul Siano (28 and an insurance agent) had a rustic winery-themed wedding at CD & ME in Frankfort, Illinois. Their wedding, which took place in the fall, was beautifully photographed by Gina Cristine Weddings. They chose an autumn-appropriate color palette, incorporating, red, yellow, orange and brown into their decor. The colorful bouquets, created by Patties Floral Express, included orange and red roses, yellow sedum, white calla lilies and stephanotis, and they contrasted beautifully with the brown Jim Hjelm bridesmaid dresses. The cupcakes for dessert also matched the color scheme, with red velvet, chocolate and vanilla-flavored cake. Elysa and Paul also wanted to demonstrate their love of wine in the wedding. "We take trips to vineyards every year and we really wanted to make that part of our wedding," Elysa says. Table numbers were represented in block numbers made out of cork stoppers, and the branchy centerpieces were arranged in vases filled with cork stoppers. As favors, the newlyweds gave their guests miniature bottles of wine with commemorative labels. "There was something for everyone to enjoy at our wedding," Elysa says. "Paul and I loved sharing the things we love with our family and friends."
