Nic & Jessie | A Glamorous Wedding at Lehmann Mansion

Another dazzling wedding is debuting on the blog today!!! Jessie & Nic were married this past weekend at Lehmann Mansion in Illinois and it was truly a picture perfect location for their big day! Inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby, Jessie & Nic knew they wanted to host a glamorous affair — tables dripping in gold, glitzy attire for the wedding party, vintage cars & a historic mansion. Truly, the only thing missing from their wedding day was an appearance by Jay Gatsby himself!

Our morning began in the most relaxed fashion as we took photos of Jessie & her gals getting ready. After bridesmaid + groomsmen photos in the mansion courtyard, the ceremony began shortly before the sun dipped below the skyline! It was seriously the perfect weather for an outdoor ceremony in September — sunny and in the 70’s with a slight breeze.. you couldn’t ask for anything better! As we squeezed out the very last few minutes of sunshine for bride & groom portraits, I watched as Nic & Jessie sank into each others arms enjoying their newlywed happiness.

I’ve had the privilege of knowing Jessie for quite a few years now and seeing her slip into her wedding gown that morning put tears behind my eyes. A supportive friend, a dedicated sister + Auntie, and a selfless leader… this woman has a heart of gold. To witness Jessie marry a partner whose soul matches her own and a man who’s qualities bring out the best in others was nothing short of a honor.

Jessie & Nic, I am SO happy for you both and I can’t wait to watch as you write this new chapter of life together! Xo

Jessie, you are flawless!!!
