Laura and Kyle said “I do” at The Waterhouse on the riverfront in Peoria, Illinois. The space’s warehouse-chic vibe was perfect for the industrial romantic theme they had envisioned. After first look photos outside, the happy couple exchanged vows in an unplugged ceremony in The Waterhouse’s distillery room. Their wedding arbor was a gorgeous mix of greenery and florals in burgundy and white. Once they’d shared their first kiss as husband and wife, Laura and Kyle took a moment to themselves and enjoyed the views from the rooftop.
Laura was radiant in her lace sheath gown with its deep V neckline and court train. She carried a bouquet of burgundy mums and blush roses accented by greenery and wildflowers. Her bridesmaids wore red gowns with varying bodice styles and carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet. Kyle and his groomsmen were dapper in blue suits. Kyle paired his with a cream colored tie and the guys wore red ones to match the ladies. The overall look was stunning!
Dinner was served in the ballroom where tables were set with blue and white striped runners and glass chargers. Centerpieces featured blush and burgundy florals in gold chalices and several tall candelabras were placed throughout the room. Gold details completed the decor and in lieu of traditional favors, Laura and Kyle generously donated to local food pantries. After dinner, the party moved back to the distillery room where guests danced the night away under hundreds of glowing Edison lights. Congratulations Laura and Kyle!
