This is not a wedding venue...

Once Upon a Time, in a little remote town in Illinois, Jess and Tom knocked on the door of a private home and what looked to be their dream wedding location. When no one answered, they left a letter for the homeowners hoping that they would consider hosting their magical day. I won't mention the homeowners names or exactly where they live, because I doubt they want everyone in the state knocking on their door too, but I will say this – They are the sweetest and most gracious hosts! Now Jess and Tom will have this wonderful story to tell for all the years to come. Thanks to all who came together to make Jess and Tom's magical day happen!
