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.

Hanging Flowers creates a Wow Factor

When a couple has a flower related name, why not incorporate them into the Wedding day arrangements? Tweedia is a little blue flower native to Brazil that fit perfectly into the bride's "hand gathered" bouquet of ranunculus, peonies, roses and eucalyptus. 

The ceremony alter at St Hedwig Church was framed with two pedestaled arrangements of sprawling floral. These were later repurposed to decor at Gallery 1028 for reception. We installed a beautiful hanging piece suspended above the sweetheart table overflowing with bay leaf, lemon leaf, and spiral eucalyptus with pops of peonies, roses, and delphinium. Hanging floral definitely creates that WOW factor when guests walk into the room.  Long wood farm tables continued the green trend with lush and long garlands of silver dollar eucalyptus while round tables featured gold compotes full of textured floral.
