My heart is melting! A dreamy, floor to ceiling glass wall venue decked out for a rustic, farm wedding at The Venue at Goebbert’s in Pingree Grove, IL is the location of my real wedding story today. In elevated “farm fancy” fashion, Tess and Eric said “I do” in a brand-spanking new event venue in Illinois which I’m so excited to share about, The Venue at Goebbert’s, located at Goebbert’s Pumpkin Patch and Apple Orchard. Tess and Eric meticulously planned their rustic farm wedding at Goebbert’s Venue with small, thoughtful details in mind that honored their love for each other and for loved ones. From the stitched heart and handwritten note Tess’s dad gave her before he passed which was sewn into the hem of her gown to the stunning pops of fall greenery and rustic decorations, these homespun touches brought this farm fancy wedding to life. Keep reading to see more from this special wedding day, including a special tribute to Tess’s dad during the ceremony!
Tess and Eric’s wedding at The Venue at Goebbert’s made for some uncommon and extraordinary wedding moments (that even I’ve never shot before!) – from the bride and groom going down a big red slide to them feeding a giraffe (yes, a giraffe!) at the barn and their First Look on a charming carousel, these joyful moments truly set the tone for their intimate, elevated farm wedding. I mean, is there even a more enchanting First Look than a first look on a merry go round? Weddings at Goebbert’s Farm are pretty dang awesome, if you ask me.
A sweet bridal cottage, apple cider donuts and ceramic pumpkins, accents of fall greenery and custom wooden signs are what tied this rustic, fall farm wedding together. With 9,600 square feet of space with floor to ceiling glass walls, I think a Goebbert’s Farm Wedding at The Venue at Goebbert’s would be just the place for a magical wedding in all four seasons – the possibilities for wedding decor are endless – imagine an all white wonderland in the winter or a romantic garden wedding theme in the spring! Loved shooting Tess and Eric’s fall farm wedding and hope to shoot another wedding at Goebbert’s!
