Emilee and Wade said “I do” at the Marina Inn and Conference Center on the Missouri Riverfront in South Sioux City. The pair lives in Omaha, but decided on South Sioux City for their wedding to be close to where Emilee grew up. Emilee says that planning the wedding was fun and she loved that the process allowed her to spend more time with her family and friends. She and Wade held their ceremony in the hotel’s courtyard, over looking the river where they got a chance to snap some gorgeous portraits with their colorfully clad wedding party.
Emilee was radiant in her princess cut gown from Rhylan Lang boutique with its sparkling beaded bodice and flowing multi-tiered skirting. She finished her look with bold statement earrings and a loose chignon with crystal embellishments. Her bridesmaids made their own statements in non-matching gowns in vibrant, springtime colors and all of the ladies carried bouquets of bright pink peonies and red roses, Emilee’s with white accents. Wade and his groomsmen were handsome in navy blue suits, each gentlemen with a tie that coordinated with one of the ladies gowns.
At the reception, tall candelabras served as centerpieces with floral arrangements of white hydrangea and pale blush roses. Accents of gold completed the decor and fun personal details were sprinkled throughout the space. Emilee says she had a blast cruising Pinterest and flipping through bridal magazines coming up with ideas. She and Wade had customized Coca-Cola bottles made and Wade’s mom created the fun and floral paper backdrop for the photo booth. The night ended with a lighted path to the river’s edge, where Emilee and Wade posed for some sunset photos, but when asked to pinpoint their favorite part of the day, they simply couldn’t. They were just overjoyed that everyone danced and had an amazing night and that they can finally call each other husband and wife after six years of dating and a year of planning. Congratulations Emilee and Wade!
