Ryan Pruemer and Alyssa Shetley had a gorgeous blush and navy wedding at St. Theresa Catholic Church in Salem, IL. Alyssa said, “The ceremony means the most to Ryan and I. We are excited to have all our favorite people in one place. And also just to celebrate the love we have for each other as we start our new journey.” The bride crafted a lot of DIY elements for the wedding, including the bouquets and decor!
I spy some Fall colored Ginko leaves… which happen to be my absolute FAVORITE tree leaf shape! These along with the wall of ivy made for a breaktaking nook for photos!!!
Their blush and navy wedding at St. Theresa Catholic Church was followed by their wedding reception in Knights of Columbus in Teutopolis, IL – but first a bar hop stop to Kenter’s Taven!
Alyssa shared some of the sweet details from their destination proposal story! She said, “We planned a trip to Norway over the holidays last year. We booked the trip in September when I was still living 2 hours from Ryan, so he told me that people probably expected him to propose but it wasn’t the right time. (He was being completely honest!) I got offered a job in St. Louis in November and he then got the idea to propose. We skied most of our time in Norway so on New Year’s Eve, we got really dressed up & I wanted a picture of us. After dinner he took me out in the snow, overlooking the town, and he had written in the snow “will you marry me?” It was absolutely beautiful!”
Congratulations to the newest Mr. & Mrs. Ryan Pruemer! We were so thrilled to get to work with you two and your lovely families!
