Intimate, Romantic Wedding at Sepia

Allison and Jon planned an intimate dinner reception for their closest family and friends at Sepia featuring a romantic atmosphere with candle light and lush, romantic flowers.

Allison carried a bouquet with an elegant, natural shape filled with garden roses, tuberose, stock, peonies and ranunculus. The various hues of burgundy, blush, and medium pink blended perfectly to compliment the bride’s soft, romantic look in her lace wedding dress. We love incorporating sentimental value whether that be incorporating a family member’s favorite flowers or wrapping a bride’s bouquet in a sash from her mom’s wedding dress as we did with Allison’s.

Jon’s light pink boutonniere popped against his classic blue suit and the little ones were certainly not forgotten either. The ring bearers looked dapper in matching boutonnieres and the flower girls were adorned with flower crowns of pink spray roses and wax flower.

For dinner, we enhanced each of the long tables with lush eucalyptus garland and pops of pink blooms. The stemmed votive holders with gold mercury glass candle light added to the romantic vibe of the evening. Thank you to The Still Life Photography for these beautiful images.

Stan Mansion Summer Wedding

Lindsay and Jay’s classy wedding took place on a gorgeous summer evening in Chicago. Their ceremony and reception at the Stan Mansion was an elegant fairy tale full of fresh flowers, stylish gold accents, and plenty of candle light. Their floral decor was refined, and featured quintessential wedding flowers like ranunculus and roses.

Lindsay held a bouquet of white roses, blush garden roses, spray roses and ranunculus. Her bridesmaids carried petite versions of the bridal bouquet. Jay and his groomsmen wore simple blush ranunculus boutonnieres, and female family members wore cheery corsages of pink spray roses on a gold band.

The ceremony aisle was lined with dozens of ivory pillar candles which were later moved to the tabletops to create warm lighting for the reception dinner. Small floral arrangements in gold bud vases accented the ivory pillar candles on the round tables while the farm style tables were decorated with tall arrangements in gold vases that mirrored the style of Lindsay’s bouquet.

Congratulations to Lindsay and Jay and thank you to Sarah Crost Photography for capturing such beautiful photos!
