Bridal bouquet by Fleur, photo by Olivia Leigh Photographie

I had to start this post with just the most beautiful cascading bouquet, captured by Olivia Leigh Weddings.  This wedding, teamed with Estera Events, is such a perfect mix of a wild, overgrown garden in the center of history.  Taking place at the Chicago Cultural Center, I can’t stop looking at the photos.  And Sarah Drake’s gorgeous paper products are a wonderful, ethereal touch to the details of the day!  Oh, and let’s not forget the beautiful copper vessels from Refind Joy!!

Congratulations to Emily & Angelo!!

Sage Wedding Pros – Be More Sage

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Earlier in the month we were very excited to provide the floral for a wonderful seminar from the ladies of Sage Wedding Pros.  It was called Be Sage, a strategy conference for wedding professionals.  Because we can all use a little time to refocus on how we run our businesses.  It was a great time at the Greenhouse Loft!

An extra special day

Friday, August 22, 2014

I’ve been a fan of Martha Stewart since I was a little girl  Before opening Fleur, I’ve probably made every craft in every magazine (and all the spin offs).  Some of the most delicious recipes that are now engrained in my mind from making them so often are from the cooking archives.  And before I had any inkling of any knowledge of working with flowers, I tore out every page of floral design and gardens (this was all before Pinterest, of course).  When my good friend Janelle text me the other morning that Martha Stewart Weddings had listed the top 25 florists to follow on Instagram and we were number 10, my heart stopped for a second.  I couldn’t believe it (and still can’t!).  To be included on a list that included some of my favorite designers was an honor that still boggles my mind.  I’m forever grateful to be on this list.  Thanks Martha Stewart, for all the years of inspiration.  Knowing that Fleur can also inspire others is really the best thing I could ever ask for in my life.

You can see the link right HERE, and be sure to follow the other 24 amazing designers too!

The Secret Garden Wedding

Friday, August 22, 2014

I’m not really sure what I liked more about this sweet bride.  Her adorable southern accent or her incredible taste in flowers.  And could she and her mom have been ANY sweeter at all throughout all the planning?  AND the wedding was in a secret garden on the boarder of Michigan? Really?!  Pair that with the most perfect weather, the MOST amazing team in the world, a gazillion taper candles and I am in my little floral heaven.  I can’t even wait for the professional photos, here are all the ones I snapped myself.  Thank you to Refind Joy for all the brass pieces!!

Congratulations to Whitney & Bradley!!

Floral Halo Class at Anthropologie

Friday, August 15, 2014

Occasionally we have opportunities to step out of our brick & mortar shop and partner with the sweetest and most talented of people.  When Amanda Jane Jones asked if I would be interested in partnering with her at Anthropologie to teach floral crown making, of course I said yes!  Meeting so many lovely people interested in learning a fun craft is simply too much fun!  In addition I met the sweetest  lady, Anna Zajac who is responsible for capture this lovely morning workshop.  Here are a few photos she took, but be sure to check out her blog for the rest of them, right HERE!

Some days you receive that email that fills you with so much excitement and happiness, and that’s how we felt today when Clary Pfeiffer sent us the photos of Courtney & Keith’s wedding from this past May at the Museum of Contemporary Art.  Absolute joy, these photos are so bright and airy from one of our favorite weddings.  Congratulations, Courtney & Keith!  We wish we could work with you every single weekend!!!

We can’t believe that a couple months back we didn’t share these photos with you from a romantic wedding at Salvage One!  The ranunculus and garden roses in these designs kind of blew our minds.  Enjoy!!
