of the Pleasant Home fireplace
On September 11, 2010, I had the pleasure and honor of being a part of Doreen and Josh's special day at the Pleasant Home Mansion in Oak Park, IL. The weather was beautiful, the food was great, those two could not have asked for anything more. The bride and groom chose to have their ceremony at the bride's parents home a month before the reception, which was a small ceremony and only consisted of the immediate family. Because of the the bride and groom's different ethnic backgrounds (the bride's family is from Bangladesh and the groom's family is Czech American), both decided to have a separate reception to include friends and family. They wanted a more laid back feel than a traditional banquet-style reception, which is why they chose the Pleasant Home mansion to host their reception.
History of The Pleasant Home Mansion
The Pleasant Home is a historic home located in the heart of Oak Park, Illinois, an architectural treasure designed by noted Prairie Style architect George W. Maher for investment banker and philanthropist John W. Farson. The Pleasant Home is very beautiful and the feel on the inside was "pleasant." The Pleasant Home also has a nice outdoor area and the outdoors was thoroughly enjoyed by the children who were present.
Special thanks to David Hernandez Photography, who will be sending me images soon from the beautiful reception. August Bloom Florals for the wonderful bouquets and rose petals, Pierre's Bakery for the delicious cake and desserts, M&M, The Special Events Company for their lovely linens and Maya Del Sol for the delicious cuisine. A special thanks to Todd Gunderson of Maya Del Sol who went above and beyond to make things happen.
Please come back next week as I will have pictures from Doreen and Josh's lovely reception, but for now...
