Shoreacres Country Club Wedding | Megan and Jack

Megan and Jack had a beautiful ceremony at Saint Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Wilmette, Illinois. Then, their ceremony was followed by a reception at Shoreacres Country Club right on the lake in Lake Bluff, Illinois. We truly can’t get over this elegant summer wedding in the suburbs of Chicago right on Lake Michigan.

The Details

Megan and Jack went beautifully traditional with their paper goods. They chose the Leah Invitation Suite. Their letterpress wedding invitations are printed in cloud light blue ink with a blind letterpress custom monogram on ivory paper. My favorite part is the venue illustration on their reception card. Additionally, we tied it all together with ivory silk ribbon. It doesn’t get much more bridal than that.

Next, the reception was a seated dinner where the table settings featured vintage blue water glasses and greenery runners down each table with tons of candlelight. They incorporated pale blue pattern napkins and tablecloths with coordinating menus, place cards, and table numbers. They used simple white bouquets and floral arrangements with classy touches of blue.

Megan’s gown is the definition classy and sophisticated, and the pale blue bridesmaids’ dresses are just as elegant. Her blue sapphire wedding band is such a unique touch which shows so much of the inspiration behind their wedding day.
