Eco+Elegant Spring Wedding

Erika and Doug’s wedding took place on one of the first bright spring days in April. Their ceremony and reception at Greenhouse Loft was full of natural light, soft floral decor, and lots of love from family and friends.

The bouquets contained fresh spring peonies, roses, sweet pea, orchids, ranunculus, and eucalyptus. The blush, ivory, and pale yellow floral added an organic feel to the ceremony, and accented the bridemaids’ mauve dresses. The men wore ivory spray rose boutonnieres with just a touch of greenery.

Glass bud vases with roses, stock, sweet pea, orchids and ranunculus lined the windows during the ceremony. These flowers beautifully framed the couple as they said “I do”, and then were repurposed as centerpieces during dinner to add an eclectic, natural look to the tabletops. Soft candle lighting lit the room as the couple danced the night away and started their lives together in style!

The beautiful pictures in this gallery were taken by Jamie & Eric Photography. Thanks to them, the couple, and the entire vendor team for creating such a beautiful day!

Fourth of July at Greenhouse Loft

Claire and John celebrated the Fourth of July surrounded by family, friends, fireworks and flowers.  This was our second year in a row for a 4th of July wedding at Greenhouse Loft!!  The venue, a beautiful space both inside and out, was the perfect backdrop for the loose and natural garden-like arrangements. The bridal bouquet, full of roses, dahlias, ranunculus, dusty miller, queen anne's lace, seeded eucalyptus and more, complimented Claire's beautiful gown. 

The color pallet of pale pinks, blush, ivory, steely blue and silver help create an elegant look to the proceedings.  The Groom's boutonniere was comprised of a single white ranunculus with silver brunia; the perfect touch to any lapel.

It was great to work with Sarah Deeke with Elevage Events and a special thanks for the beautiful photos from Christy Tyler Photography!! 

Just Peachy- A wedding at Greenhouse Loft

This wedding started off as a phone call between the mother of the bride and myself.  Annie's mom is a florist in Texas.  She knew that she wanted to relax at her daughter's wedding so she would have to entrust the flowers to someone else for the day.  I was so honored (and a bit nervous, eek!) to be chosen for this!  Pressure is on, right?  It's a florist's daughter!! 

We all met for the first time at the hotel on the morning of Annie and Rob's wedding and I was received with huge hugs!  As I was walking out I looked at my phone and saw the most relieving text from the mother of the bride. " OMG!!!!! The bouquets are STUNNING!!!!!! Love them!!!!!! It was so great to meet you!!!!!". Phew!!

This was a mid September wedding, a perfect month for flowers here in the Midwest.  We incorporated some gorgeous white dahlias, queen anne's lace, ranunculus. scabiosa pods, millet, spray roses and my favorite... garden roses.  Half of the centerpieces were cube vases filled with lush floral and the other half were floating candles in clear cylinder vases.....a very romantic look indeed. 

Their venue, Greenhouse Loft, is located in the Green Exchange building in Logan Square and is one of the most sustainable event spaces in Chicago. The space has beautiful natural light and a landscaped outdoor terrace for the summer months.  They also have in-house photographers to capture everything.  Thank you Jamie from  Greenhouse Loft Photography, for providing these stellar pictures!
