"We just happened to be there at the same time," Emily says. The two started hanging out with mutual friends and haven't stopped since. After Jordan proposed at Emily's surprise 30th birthday party last year, she spent a little under a year planning. The frst goal: design a wedding that refected her minimalist style. "I knew exactly what I didn't want," she says. "I did not want anything remotely rustic. No barns, no bourbon barrels, no Mason jars. I wanted something very modern, very fresh, clean lines." Growing up, Emily had seen the reception venue, Greystone Estate in Glenview, while out on her parents' boat on the river. "I always said I would love to get married there. It makes me kind of nostalgic, it's so beautiful and stately looking," she says. Keeping with her minimalist style, Emily chose calla lilies for the foral arrangements, simple string lighting in the tent where they held the reception, and white tablecloths and china. For her dress, Emily says, "I wanted something very structured and modern. I went into Rebecca's and said, 'What do you have that has no sequins and no lace?'" One thing Emily says she's really glad she did: hire wedding coordinators to take care of all the details. On the way to the ceremony in the party bus, one of the groomsmen was dancing and ripped his jacket all the way up the back. When they got to the church, the coordinators fxed it with staples. Emily's advice to other brides: • "You're not going to regret having too many photos, so splurge on having the photographer for the extra two hours or four hours. Sometimes the best moments happen at the beginning of the day before you're getting ready or at the end of the day when some of your favorite people are hanging around." • "If you're not going to have a planner, try to put as much responsibility into one vendor as possible. We paid Masterson's 5 percent extra and they coordinated our tent; they coordinated the chairs, the lights, all these diferent things." APRIL 11th, 2015 The Wedding of
