Lake Forest Wedding: Katie & Leon

Candlelight? Check. Fountains? Check. Breathtakingly dramatic staircase? CHECK! If you’re in the mood for romance that is borderline fairytale, we can’t wait for you to see Katie & Leon’s wedding day at the Armour House in Lake Forest! A good wedding venue does more than give you a place to celebrate your love. It can be an extension of your style, your story, and your vision for the day! When we asked Katie & Leon what they loved most about the Armour House in Lake Forest, we couldn’t agree more with their thoughts!

“We both loved the romantic and vintage feeling of the Armour House. There is such a variety of spaces and we like the feeling of hosting in a grand old home. We particularly love the staircase in the great hall, the fountain in the garden room and the fireplace in the great hall.”

I mean, who doesn’t love a Great Hall?! The day was perfectly planned around the intimacy and grandness of the different areas of the space. There could be intimate conversation in the Library before the party atmosphere of the Garden Room. Katie & Leon looked right at home, showcasing their story against the staircase, vaulted ceilings, and enviable natural light! Add to that all of Katie’s personal detail touches — and we’re in love! In the marble room (oh yes, the Marble Room!), there was a custom art installation made by Katie of white, pink and gold “roses.” Every candle and key was in place, leading up to a truly special first dance. Katie & Leon came ready to wow their family & friends, ending the night on a high note of elegance & romance.

Enjoy! And join us in congratulating Katie & Leon!
