Maggy and Dan wanted an autumn wedding with a moody and romantic feel, and with their stunning fall florals and burgundy, navy and gold color scheme, they achieved just that. The weekend they chose for their nuptials was not just random either – Maggy’s family has a tradition where they take a trip to Northern Iowa and Wisconsin to see the changing leaves, visit the apple orchards and enjoy autumn treats. It was always Maggy’s hope to have an autumn wedding that weekend so she could share her favorite time of year with her wedding guests. They chose TPC Deere Run for it’s beautiful views and tall trees creating the perfect autumn backdrop. Also, one of the first things Maggy and Dan bonded over was their love of golf – so why not get married at a golf course!?
The couple had coozies made as wedding favors that stated “we want to be formal, but we are here to party!” and Maggy says that could not be more accurate. After they exchanged “I Dos” the couple and their 250 guests enjoyed a cocktail hour with his and hers appetizers, snacks and desserts, and after dinner Maggy’s brother Aaron rocked the dance floor so hard that he split his pants! The guests were served a Nacho Bar later in the night ensuring that they would have enough fuel to keep the party going all night long!
If Maggy could change anything about her wedding day, she wishes it would have been a little warmer outside, but she was happy to have space heaters to keep them warm. She states this as her favorite moment of the day: “I have this clear moment that I remember of when we were sitting at our amazing head table surrounded by our guests enjoying dinner, beautiful music was playing, and I looked at our wedding party sharing the table together laughing and having the best time. That moment was complete bliss and I was so grateful that my husband and I were so lucky to be able to celebrate us with our favorite people in the most incredible way.”
