Winter is the time when you begin to plan your summer celebration. And with the chilly temperatures ahead, we thought we'd look back on this beautiful, lakeside wedding at a private residence in Lake Geneva. Beautifully photographed by Anna Guziak Photography, and perfectly planned by Five Grain Events, it was the ideal summer celebration!
December weddings are simply beautiful. Wintry and fresh with a nod to the holidays, this affair at The Drake Hotel was no exception. Flawlessly coordinated by SQN Events & photographed by Avery House, we love every single detail. Check out the printed winter 2018 edition Inside Weddings for a beautiful write up!
We are absolutely in love with this wedding at the Bridgeport Art Center. Lush, green and ivory and filled with some of our favorite create partners, it really could not have been more perfect. The photos from Natalie Probst Photography are breathtaking. Working with Estera Events, Sarah Drake design, Art of Imagination, Bowery & Bash & Entertaining Company was basically a dream!
We were pretty excited when BHLDN reached out to us asking for a beautiful floral wall to act as a backdrop for their 2018 gown launch! Personally, we think floral walls are the only kind that should be built!
We simply cannot stop looking at these beautiful photos from Natalie Probst Photography. This colorful and romantic wedding at Gallery 1028 was filled with the most beautiful garden roses, so much glow and all of the texture. It was filled with perfect details, all organized by Estera Events. We're so ready to do this again!
This past week we hosted two simple, herb wreath making workshops in the Studio! Students made their own wreaths out of fresh rosemary, thyme, sage and more while sipping on cava and enjoying sweets from Bang Bang Pie! Here are a few images of the two classes, we can't wait to see you at our next one!
This has been a busy year for Fleur, filled with expansion both in our retail boutique and our studio location, lots of personal growth and always learning new way to make our designs and offerings better for all our beloved guests. There was a lot to be thankful for this past weekend. I'm a little reflective today after the holiday (Thanksgiving happens to be my favorite). On Wednesday night we unexpectedly found out that my brother needed a pacemaker and bright and early Thanksgiving morning he was given one. As an avid runner (He runs marathons) it was quite the surprise, and we were all thrilled when we heard that it went well and he's already feeling better. Saturday night my Dad and Sister in Law were in a car accident after a chain of crashes ended up hitting them. My sister in law broke her wrist and my Dad's car is totaled, but thankfully that is all that happened.
Thanksgiving was sandwiched between these two stressful events, and sitting here on my morning off work with a cup of coffee in my hand and my husband by my side I'm so incredibly grateful for my family.
I wanted to share a few photos of our Thanksgiving dinner table, and in case you didn't see my Instagram post, I wanted to retire a very important message to all of you.
I'm so thankful for all the love and support from our Logan Square neighbors and beyond. For all the couples who trust myself and my team to be a part of their celebrations. And so thankful and grateful to my team who inspire me every day with all their love, dedication & creativity (& tolerate my totally type A craziness).
As the holiday season approaches, I hope we're all reminded to slow down a little, take deep breaths and be kind to those around us.

We love an outdoor wedding reception in Chicago & we absolutely adore this colorful and fun wedding at Morgan's on Fulton. These photos from Dana Ann Photography capture all the happiness put into this wedding. This is seriously one stylish family and we were beyond excited to work with them on another wedding. And as always, we loved working with Estera Events!
We're not sure why it took so long to post these beautiful images, especially since they're from Clary Pfeiffer Photography, but better late than never! This is a truly classic wedding held at Germania Place, and Estera Events was there making sure every detail was properly taken care of. The tall gold stands on the guest tables are one of our most popular requests, and we certainly can see why. They're thin, elegant and do not obstruct any views. Paired with a candle treatment centerpieces and a lush compote, this wedding is pretty much perfect!
