Lake of the Woods Botanical Gardens, Mahomet, IL
Each year, I get the distinct honor of meeting each new Fair Queen for their outdoor summer session. I love doing this for each girl so that they have photos to remember their year with and, well, what fair queen wouldn’t like glamming up for a photo session?!
This year, the title of Miss Ford County was awarded to the gorgeous Audrey Bloomquist. I got to see a tidbit of the pageant, and could tell Audrey was rocking it alongside the other contestants. Her gown that night was beautiful, but when she showed me her official pageant gown for the state competition I think my draw dropped. Audrey told me that red was her color, and boy could I tell! With her ruby red lips, red gown, and elements from the Lake of the Woods Botanical Gardens, she killed it!
Audrey, I hope you enjoy this year as Miss Ford County and cherish these memories forever!
