Winter Wedding Delight

While Chicago often only has two seasons (Festivals & Frigid), Winter Weddings are becoming more and more popular.  With the mild winter we have had this year, it was pleasant to have beautiful white floral and seemingly frosted succulents decorate Revolution Brewing's Tap Room.  Lauren & Jordan were wed beneath their hand made Chuppah with barrels donning white spray roses, dahlias, and roses with  olive tree foliage and wintery gray dusty milller. 

Lauren carried a textured bouquet of succulents, anemone, brunia, and garden roses while Jordan sported a succulent and ranunculus boutonniere. Garlands of olive tree branches with pops of white floral lined the dinner tables, set off by the soft glow of mercury glass votive candles.  Romantic and subtle, soft and warm just like the newly weds' love. 

Special Thank You to Cage & Aquarium Photography for capturing (and sharing) these beautiful photos!  

Green and White at Greenhouse Loft

November in Chicago was as mild and snowless as an early fall day.  With no white on the ground, we brought early wintery white floral to Laura and Eric's Wedding Day.  Laura held a slightly cascading bouquet featuring large white blooms and saturated greenery, while Eric sported a cluster of white ranunculus with a touch of leafy brightness.  Bridesmaids carried all white dahlias bouquets.

The late fall wedding took place at the beautiful Greenhouse Loft .  Each table was adorned with a different style of metallic vase filled with hydrangea, stock, garden roses, dahlias, magnolia leaves, italian ruscus and privet berries. 

Special and warm thanks to the lovely Jamie Davis and Steve Ewert for providing an eco-friendly space, amazing professional photographs, and photo booth fun for the guests- you guys have it all!  

White Blooms of May

A white flower can  symbolize many things including purity, honesty, perfection and elegance. Which is why Gracie and David surrounded themselves with white blooms on their May 9th wedding.  

Gracie's bridal bouquet featured roses, peonies and ranunculus tamed only by white satin ribbon.  It's rounded yet slightly wild look was kept grounded by pops of greenery. While David's boutonniere held textured pods and leaves with a single white ranunculus seemingly hovering above.  

A Chuppah comprised of Birch poles with large clusters of roses and hydrangea spilling from the front corners framed the couple during ceremony.  Continuing into the reception, the floral tied in beautifully as puffy clouds settling on each table throughout the venue: Floating World Gallery.  Clusters of peonies, ranunculus, roses and hydrangea overflowed clear cubed vases giving the illusion that the flowers were indeed floating.  

Big thank you to Cage and Aquarium for capturing these details most beautifully!
