Janna & Ryan celebrated in style with a wonderfully intimate ceremony & reception with 50 of their closest family and friends. Their historic venue, Quarters One in Rock Island, was absolute perfection providing such a fabulous backdrop to their day.
Quarters One is known as the second-largest federal residence in the United States, behind the White House. This venue fit everything they had imagined for their wedding day, with it’s classic Italianate beauty and spectacular riverfront setting.
Janna and Ryan’s day was filled with the most gorgeous midnight blue, merlot, blush, and mustard details. These colours really popped in the reception centrepieces and bridesmaids bouquets, all hand arranged by the bride and bridesmaids. These decadent shades were not only incorporated into the floral arrangements, but they also came through in many of the natural backgrounds for the pictures; the burgundy curtains, the yellow exterior of the building, and hints of leaves turning gold helped create a cohesive look for all of their wedding pictures.
I just love rich red colours in a wedding and Janna’s ruby red velvet heels were the perfect little splash of colour under her bridal gown, which she beautifully designed herself. The soft pink hues in the lace detail on the bodice and dazzling rhinestone detail on the waist were absolutely stunning. To top it off her flowing veil also featured hand sewn lace detail around the edge.
Hands down the detail from Janna & Ryan’s wedding which was most fabulous were their hand assembled bouquets and floral arrangements. What a fabulous concept!
