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!

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 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! 

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!
