Madison & Bo Bilello
March 5, 2017
One year ago, we had the pleasure of planning and coordinating this sweet couple's wedding! Madison and Bo were married Saturday, March 5, 2016 at The Ice House Venue in Jackson. One special thing about The Ice House that we love is the entire bridal party is able to get ready at the same place - guys in the basement, ladies in the loft.
While the guys were downstairs hanging out and playing pool, Madison and her ten bridesmaids spent the morning primping. Madison comes from a family of talented hairstylists and used hers and two of the bridesmaids (Madelen Greer and Annedrea McMillan) talent to do hair and makeup for the bridal party! Madison wore an Allure dress from The Bride Groom in Columbus and carried a beautiful white and peach bouquet from William Box Florals. The girls wore a gorgeous light blue dress by Nouvelle Amsale from Bella Bridesmaid. Their white and peach bouquets popped with the color of the dress. The guys wore black tuxes from Men's Warehouse adorned with a simple, but classic, white boutonniere.
Madison and Bo decided against a first look to make the moment of her walking down the grand iron staircase and then down the aisle even sweeter! This extra time apart allowed Katie Staten from Mary Moment Photography to capture gorgeous bridal party shots outside in the natural light that made Madison and her bridesmaids look angelic!
The six o'clock ceremony, officiated by Reverend Kevin Cooper of Grace Crossing Baptist Church, was held in front of wooden doors with a greenery garland, under a crystal chandelier. After the ceremony, the family stayed for pictures and the guests were escorted into the reception area for passed appetizers and light music. The bride and groom were introduced and went right into their first dance, followed by the sweetest father/daughter and mother/son dances. The brides unique cake, designed by Madison and made by Cakes by Iris, set atop a silver plateau topped with fresh flowers and the groom opted for cobbler in martini glasses, instead of the traditional cake. The guests danced to music by Faze4 and delicious food from Susie Morgan of Loose Ends Catering. The newlyweds exited to a shower of bubbles from their family and friends.
We love this sweet couple and wish Madison and Bo an exciting second year of marriage! Check out a few photo highlights and list of vendors below.
