Glamour at the Grand Wyndham Hotel

Jennifer and Jawad's elegant wedding took place at the Grand Wyndham Hotel in Chicago. Their June wedding was at the peak of peony season, so they embraced the coral and pink tones from peonies and roses which set the tone for a cheerful celebration. 

Jennifer's bouquet featured these bright summer blooms with softer hues of white lisianthus and peach ranunculus. The bridesmaids' bouquets echoed her vibrant colors with accents of trailing greenery. The groomsmen matched the ladies, wearing peach ranunculus boutonnieres. 

The ceremony was an intimate rooftop gathering of family & friends. The couple said "I do" while framed by an arch draped with sheer white fabric accented by colorful roses, peonies, and trailing Italian Ruscus. This picture perfect memory will last a lifetime!

After the ceremony, the couple and guests enjoyed a beautiful dinner and plenty of dancing surrounded by gold compote vases with overflowing with gorgeous summer flowers. Hot pink, white, and soft pink peonies were in abundance with ivory spray roses, stock and mock orange blooms.  This wedding was a peony lover's dream, and we sure hope Jennifer and Jawad have a future as bright and lovely as their flowers. 

Special thanks to PixSight Photography for their beautiful images. 

 

Urban Meets Organic

Molly & Ronnie's summer wedding at Lacuna Lofts was as bright and vibrant as they are. Not a cloud in the sky, the sun lit up their rooftop wedding and made for lifelong memories with family & friends. The backdrop of the ceremony was the one-of-a-kind Chicago skyline, while flowers and greenery brought organic, natural touches to the aisle & bridal party. 

Molly & her bridesmaids carried colorful bouquets of larkspur, dahlias, roses, and stock. The peaches, pinks, and deep purples were radiant against the lavender bridesmaids dresses. The groom and family members wore spray rose boutonnieres and corsages that echoed that pink and lavender colors with touches of blue thistle and greenery. 

After the ceremony, the party moved inside to the Reverie Gallery at Lacuna Lofts. Dinner tables were decorated with clear hobnail jars and the same colorful mix of florals and greens. Gold mercury glass votives surrounded the centerpieces and added to the room's warm glow. The chair flowers that had lined the aisle during the ceremony were repurposed to bring the same organic, natural look to the head table. 

Ed & Aileen Photography did an amazing job with with the photos, and the event staff at Lacuna Lofts was delightful to work with, as always! Thanks to such a great couple and vendor team!
