A Touch of Boho

When a couple comes to us with a bohemian vision, our creative juices really start flowing. Tara and Derek gave us the perfect opportunity to mix romantic colors of burgundy,  magenta and blush with tropical ferns and lush greenery to create an exotic look. 

The bride carried a natural bouquet bursting with texture. The groom complimented her with a burgundy boutonniere, while her ladies held smaller gatherings of greens and blushes. Even their four legged love made an appearance in his very own garland collar! 

They said "I Do" at Ravenswood Event Center under a birch structure cascading with ferns, and roses of every shade of pink. We later repurposed the statement piece as the backdrop for their donut bar! We had two styles of centerpieces- a lush green garland interspersed with golden pillar candles and jaw dropping gold compotes overflowing with greenery and pops of floral. 

Special thank you to Leah Moyers Photography for capturing the details of this day so beautifully! 

Romantic Ravenswood Wedding

When a client comes to us with a romantic vision of blush, ivory and gold accents, we smile. When they make the choice to donate their flowers after their event to Random Acts of Flowers, that smile grows! This is exactly what Britnee and Nick chose to do after their beautiful Ravenswood Event Center wedding. 

We designed the romantic feel for their July wedding with a manicured bouquet of peonies, roses, and ranunculus of ivory, blush and pinks. Gold vessels including hobnail jars (repurposed from ceremony chairs), chalices, and compotes were filled with big bloom floral like hydrangea, cafe au lait dahlias,  roses and peonies. Add mercury glass votives surrounding the ledges and the room is set! 

Then at the end of the beautiful evening, we came to pick up rentals and the leftover floral, but rather than throwing them in the dumpster, we happily donate them to be repurposed for hospital, children and hospice care patients to enjoy them for the weeks to come. Smiles for everyone! 

Special thank you to Nick with Gerber + Scarpelli photography for capturing and sharing these details so well! As well as the wonderful Kim with Bride+Joy for planning the day effortlessly! 

A peach wedding in Ravenswood

Liz and Nick exchanged vows at Ravenswood Event Center underneath a floral arch. Rich green foliage covered the arch while asymmetrical peach, coral and white floral helped soften the industrial feel of the soaring windows in the atrium. The Bride carried a whimsical bouquet with textural, seasonal elements of poppy pods, ranunculus, garden roses, and greenery. The groom wore a peach ranunculus with textured greenery.

Guest's tables featured clear glass compote centerpieces as well as bottled vessels of various heights and sizes filled with ranunculus, Astilbe, Stock, and Roses. Metallic champaign and vintage inspired cut glass votives added a warm glow to the loft space as well. Notice how the coral napkins really accentuate the pop of coral in the centerpieces. Lace runners were a great way to pull all the decor together- good tip when you have several different vases/elements on a table.  

Chad with Husar Photography did a beautiful job capturing these elements and we thank you for sharing these images with us!
