Garden Elegance 

Venue & Food 

The Pavilion at Sandy Pines Country Club offers an idyllic setting for an outdoor wedding. Surrounded by a beautifully manicured garden, this venue accommodates up to 200 guests with garden chairs. The reception takes place just steps away in the Pavilion, ensuring you’re covered in case of rain. 

A notable advantage of choosing Sandy Pines is the availability of an on-site wedding planner and designer. The Bridal House and groom’s lounge provide spacious, comfortable areas for the bridal party, both overlooking the picturesque golf course. 

Sandy Pines delighted us with a delectable dish. The chef expertly prepared prime New York strip steak, generously adorned with herb butter, accompanied by tender asparagus spears and roasted red potatoes infused with fragrant thyme and rosemary. The aroma had our taste buds dancing in anticipation! 


For this stylized shoot, the team embraced a rustic ambiance, incorporating wood, gold, and neutral tones. The Pantone color of the year, Peach Fuzz, was elegantly featured in the tablescapes, ice cream area, and dessert table. 


The rustic yet understated palette crafted by La Petite’s floral design seamlessly complemented the ambiance of Sandy Pines Country Club. Her selection included an array of blooms such as peach carnations, cremons, carpe diem roses, shimmer roses, hypericum, lisianthus, ranunculus, accented with bunny tail, seeded eucalyptus, and baby blue eucalyptus. 


Our model, Ali Melendez, graced the scene in two stunning dresses courtesy of Elegance Wedding and Evening Wear. The first, a full-length satin gown with a charming train, exuded elegance, while its slit added a touch of allure. The second, a playful strapless reception dress, was perfect for dancing the night away. 

Hair & Makeup 

Ali’s hair, expertly styled by Hair By Kimberly, boasted an elegant low bun, radiating sophistication. Merle Norman accentuated her striking blue eyes with a soft pink eyeshadow and blush lips, enhancing her natural beauty. 


With over 1000 weddings captured, Shane Lawrence Photography is a seasoned expert in the art of photography. His timeless and elegant style ensures that every moment is immortalized in stunning detail, ready to be cherished for years to come! 


Chicagoland Popcorn curated an irresistible dessert table guaranteed to satisfy any sweet craving. Featuring their signature customizable popcorn in three delectable flavors among a selection of cakes and cookies, there’s something to delight every palate.
