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! 

Bottles of Blooms

Early April is always a gamble for weather in the city of Chicago. Luckily, Greenhouse Loft offers floor to ceiling windows to give the feel of the outdoors with natural light and a view of green gardens without the cold winds of the midwest. This clean, energy efficient (Go Green!) loft was the perfect space for Kate & Jonathan to tie the knot.  

The bride held a bouquet bursting with spring flowers- including ranunculus (some of the most gorgeous we have seen!) , stock, garden roses and veronica. The groom sported a single ivory ranunculus accented with blush calcinea. The ceremony aisle was defined by two glass urns atop white pedestals. The vases were overflowing with ivory, blush, peach and greenery. Bottles of blooms (peonies, ranunculus, roses and more) lined the window sills of the space during ceremony and then were repurposed on slabs of oak for centerpieces on each table. 

Special Thank You to Jennifer with Jennography for always doing such amazing job capturing all the details and sharing them with us!  

 

Soft Hues of Summer

The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum is the perfect space to "escape" the city and embrace the outdoors. Natalia & Eric had a Summer celebration with blooms of Gerber Daisies (her fav), Ranunculus, Dahlias, Stock and Roses overflowing vintage tea cups and silver compote vases. 

The Bride held a beautiful bouquet of blush, medium pinks, lilac, light peach and purples that matched her bridesmaid's dresses perfectly. The flower girls carried blush and lavender pomanders. The Groom too, wore a pastel pink Ranunculus, while his possy's jackets were adorned with peachy ranunculus.  The over all feeling of the day with the bright sunshine, stunning flowers, and smiling faces was truly one of celebration!
