Rustic Chic Illinois Distillery Proposal

SHE SAID YES! On Sunday, June 4, Michel brought Alex back to Whiskey Acres Distilling Co. to propose where they'd shared their "first real date." Having invited their families and close friends to hide themselves away in the tasting room, Michel proposed in the romantic courtyard.

With strings of cafe lights overhead and arrangements of sunflowers and hydrangeas created by Floral Wonders of Geneva scattered throughout, it couldn't have been more beautifully planned. The wonderfully talented Ashley of Higuchi Productions was also on hand to document the occasion. After a teary, happy party, the couple stole away to take several portraits together on the distillery grounds to celebrate the moment.
