Continuing our series on Must Have Photos at Heritage Prairie Farm, this week we look at one detail that is completely unique to the space.

Our couples put a lot of thought into every detail of the big day. The table settings, the DIY decor, the jewelry, the seating list, and personalized favors are all important to the look and feel of the celebration.

But at Heritage Prairie Farm, there is one detail that brings its own flair to each event. This decoration changes with the seasons and fills the space with color, texture, and maybe a surprise or two.

This week, we’re looking at photos of the grounds at Heritage Prairie Farm.

As an outdoor wedding venue in Illinois, the seasons lend their decoration to the natural beauty of the landscape for some stunning and interesting photographs. From the produce and bees to the farmhouse details, there is no end to these seasonal and curated elements that will enhance your collection of wedding photos.

Let’s take a look at some of our favorites below:
