Illinois Countryside Wedding at Emerson Creek Pottery and Tea Room

April 29, 2017 | Junebug Weddings

Jessica and Humberto’s wedding at Emerson Creek Pottery and Tea Room combined elegant style with rustic décor to create a beautiful celebration! The indoor/outdoor spaces of the farm venue spoke to the couple’s unique personalities because it allowed guests to choose either to be in a laid-back setting or right in the middle of the party during the reception. The bride’s brother brewed a special beer for the couple using ingredients from their respective home states – Illinois and Texas – as well as from California, which is where the couple met and fell in love. We love how Native Weddings captured every detail and nuance of this beautiful wedding!

The Couple:

Jessica and Humberto

The Wedding:

Emerson Creek Pottery and Tea Room, Oswego, Illinois

We loved the natural secluded setting. The pond and open farmland was amazing and the indoor/outdoor space allowed for everyone to find a space. It was the only venue we felt truly suited our different personalities.

We had a mariachi to kick things off, as well as a beer brewed with ingredients from our respective home states, and the state where we met (Illinois wheat [hers], Texas grains [his] and California hops [ours]). The most fun had to have been spent on the indoor/outdoor dance floor with a mix of Spanish and English classics!

“Matrimonial(e): This brew was specially crafted to celebrate the joining of two amazing lives. Texas grown pale malt and Midwest two row provide the foundation of this beer, symbolizing the unique individual beginnings of the bride and groom. A healthy dose of west coast hops represents the place where Jess and Humberto’s love blossomed. Being something more than its sum of parts, this brew as a whole depicts the synergetic spirit that Jess and Humberto hope to exude in their life together.”
