A Rich Blend

This ceremony blended two cultures rich with tradition, beauty, and love. Under the billowing fabric of the birch chuppah/mandap, Indian and Jewish customs united the families as they celebrated the marriage of Rachel and Nithin. 

Getting married under the open sky on the patio at Greenhouse Loft, the warm light of the setting sun accented the organic decor. Lush smilax greenery and flowers adorned the chuppah/mandap while jars of wild blooms hung from aisle side chairs.  The stunning bride carried a whimsical bouquet of blush roses, cafe au lait dahlias, juliet garden roses, peach ranunculus and jasmine vine. The groom boasted a sweet and simple white ranunculus boutonniere to match. 

Once inside for the reception, the blush and peach blooms sweetened up the entire loft. Paired with ivory and gold, the reception area was romantic and bright- an enchanting atmosphere to celebrate this lovely couple. Long tables were lined with eucalyptus garlands while smaller square tables featured the sweet hanging chair flowers in jars from the ceremony.  All tables were sprinkled with the warm glow from gold mercury glass votives.

A curtain of hanging flowers provided the perfect backdrop for Rachel & Nithin's first evening as husband and wife. (Secret tip: we repurposed the front part of the chuppah/mandap here!)

Special thanks to Avery House for capturing the the big love and little moments on this beautiful day! 

Roses, Ranunculus, and Peonies- Oh My!

It's always fun to play with some of our favorite flowers like those at Kelli & Ryan's April Wedding. Accenting the contemporary look of Greenhouse Loft, the couple chose a rustic garden style with mason jars, wooden boxes and glass bottles to hold the ivory and soft pink blooms of the season. The Groom and his men wore ivory ranunculus wrapped in twine while the Bride and her gals carried Spring filled bouquets of garden roses, peonies, ranunculus, waxflower, stock, eucalyptus and more. 

Add warm glow of gold votives and lots of love and you have the recipe for this magical reception. Special thank you to Cage & Aquarium Photographers Jade & Kristin for capturing and sharing these beautiful photographs with us! 

Romantic Reds at GHL

Early March in Chicago means minimal in season growth. However, that didn't stop Jennifer & Nick from embracing a warm and romantic ora with what was available- including rich greenery, traditional roses, ranunculus, spray roses, berries and more. The design was inspired by the burgundy tones of the bridesmaids' dresses, pops of ivory to compliment the clean feel of their venue (Greenhouse Loft), hints of greenery to bring the garden feel indoors, and a touch of candle light from our gold votives to bring class and softness to the space. 

The couple said their vows beneath a birch structure decorated asymmetrically with greenery and floral. This structure was then repurposed to frame the couple as they sat at their sweetheart table for dinner. Another highlight of the evening was their simple 3 tiered cake with cascading floral down the side. 

All of these amazing photographs were captured by the wonderful Jamie with Jamie & Eric Photography.  Thank you so much for sharing these with us! 

Garden Greenery at GHL

Couples who choose Greenhouse Loft as their venue naturally gravitate towards a fresh, garden look with big bloom flowers, textured greenery and pops of subtle pastels. Michelle and Mike embraced this inspiration and injected their own personality creating a one of a kind Wedding. 

Starting with a statement piece at the entrance filled with ferns, lotus pods, garden roses, seeded eucalyptus, ranunculus and more to welcome guests with a fragrant garden feel.  Michelle held a playful bouquet of ferns, succulents, calla lilies, lotus pods, peonies, ranunculus, asilbe and roses.  Mike  sported a petite succulent boutonniere.  They stood under a birch structure with asymmetrical greenery and floral with a vintage inspired lace fabric.  The adorable art model table numbers stood proudly on wood slabs with gold compotes filled with floral and trios of re-useable candles. Add a photo booth and the recipe is complete for a night of fun! 

Super special Thank You to Naturally Yours Events for coordinating the day flawlessly and to Jamie for the amazing photography!
