Colleen and Joe's wedding had all the classic touches: white dress, gold decor, a stunning venue- The Chicago Athletic Association Hotel- and yet they went out of their way to add quirky touches to make the day their own.
Inspired by the colors of figs, their fall wedding palette included shades of plum, salmon, burgundy, and navy with accents of peach and blush. Her bouquet was a lush arrangement of dahlias, two-tone garden roses, spray roses, ranunculus, privet berries and cymbidium orchids. The multi-colored trailing ribbons topped off the look, giving her a chic, yet elegant style. We loved her hair flowers too...little buds of ranunculus and spray roses with a touch of seeded eucalyptus.
The reception was decorated with eclectic gold vases filled with fig inspired floral including some very cool antique hydrangea and deep purple scabiosa. Gold votive candles were paired with the arrangements to create a warm glow at each table as the guests enjoyed the celebration.
