Teaching classes is one of our most favorite things to do at Fleur. This past Sunday we teamed up for a second time with Cindy Phelan Design in our studio location to create a lovely floral design class and then learn the basics of water color painting. It truly was the sweetest morning, starting with a splash of Cava, a few sweets to snack on and so much creativity. We can't wait for another!
This year we've been at the Bridgeport Art Center - both the Skyline Loft & Sculpture Garden, at least once a month. And that couldn't make us happier! Each and every time the vision is so different and we have so much fun coming up with all the details! Here are a few snaps we took from this past March, followed by some much more beautiful photos from This is Feeling Photography!
And here are the photos from This is Feeling!
This was one of those weddings were everything was truly different, lush, lovely and basically everything. Juliana and Jake were married at the Chicago History Museum. They currently reside in Chicago, so we brought in accents of orchids & then kept it stately and classic with height and plush blooms. We also debuted the moon arch, one of our very favorite backdrops for a ceremony. It was a gorgeous day with LK Events and we want to do it all over again! These photos from Jody Savage Photography are simply the most.
The Bridgeport Art Center is one of our favorite venues, and we love how different every wedding is. These photo from Jill Tiongco Photography are the sweetest!!!
Wedding season is here! We're a little embarrassed that it has taken so long to post, but that's only because we've been busy creating some truly special events the last few months. But we had to stop for a second to share this wedding at Thalia Hall, ultimate beautiful glow with Bliss Weddings & Events. The photos from Olivia Leigh Photographie are BEYOND gorgeous. Enjoy!
Jaime is the sweetest. She sometimes freelances with us, and we always wonder how we were so lucky to find her! Her talent is endless, her smile is the best & we were completely thrilled to help her out on her wedding day! Enjoy these beautiful photos from Stephanie Bassos!
New Year's Eve we were delighted to work at The Chicago Athletic Association with one of our favorite planning teams, Jayne Weddings. We can't imagine anything more beautiful than a celebration overlooking Michigan Avenue in such an iconic hotel! Gold, ivory and greens made this celebration elegant and romantic. The photos from Sean Cook Photography couldn't be more perfect!
This past October we celebrated a beautiful wedding at the Palmer House, one of our favorite historic hotels in Chicago. The bride was from out of state, and we worked with Bliss Weddings to bring her vision to the stage with lots of planning, phone calls and tweaking to make sure everything was perfect! Pairing our favorite roses with pheasant feathers and all the magnolia you can dream of, this wedding was simply lovely. The photos from The Image is Found made our day! Enjoy!
This past March we were once again beyond thrilled to sponsor the floral for the Martha Stewart Wedding Party show in Chicago, held at the Radisson Blu. Coordinated by The Wedding Library and Lovebird Events, it's one of our favorite bridal shows in the city, filled with talented vendors and basically the best vibes you can imagine. Martha Stewart editors Darcy Miller and Anthony Luscia few in for the event to greet guests and offer some wedding advice, and we were honored to sit on a panel of experts alongside Darcy to start off the event! Here are a few images of our displays, photographed by Amanda Megan Miller!
It was a thrill to once again be a part of Near North Montessori's fundraiser for financial aid. We love giving back, and especially to a wonderful school, helping kids who otherwise could not afford to attend. Held at Salvage One (One of our favorite locations), it was truly a beautiful evening! Here are just a few snaps we took of the evening. The palette of gold, champagne and silver is definitely one of our favorites. Enjoy!
We finally are blogging this beautiful & bright wedding at The Adler Planetarium! Although we love neutral wedding palettes, it's so fun when you add a little bit of brightness into the day. We were thrilled with these photos from Tim Tab Studios and the day was perfect with Wrap it Up Parties. Love and good vibes all around!

This morning we were thrilled to see that one of our favorite classic weddings was featured on one of our favorite blogs. A ceremony overlooking Lake Michigan was the perfect backdrop for a tailored but romantic collection of blooms. It was the perfect afternoon coordinated by SQN Events at the Shoreacres Country Club. Kina Wicks Photography beautifully captured these photos, and you can see a full post on Carats and Cake!
This wedding truly made us happy. Add giant magnolia centerpieces to black taper candlesticks. Include lush, foliage heavy centerpieces and terra cotta lanterns. Charcuterie plates from Boutique Bites and Estera Events there to coordinate it all, and you're left with the most beautiful wedding at the Arranmore Polo Club under a clear tent with 1000's of sparkling lights. Truly a Fleur favorite! Natalie Probst Photography captured everything so perfectly!!
"I will feel a glow just thinking about you, & the way you look tonight."
This past September we had celebrated a beautiful wedding at Room 1520 with Urban Allure Events. The mother of the bride had impeccable taste, curating candles and garlands across the ceremony and reception. Soft blush, champagne, ivory and sage accented the glow and heavy foliage & Todd James Photography captured everything as if you were inside a dream. Also, the greenery backdrop and draping from Art of Imagination could not have been more perfect! Such a beautiful wedding that we adore!
When Estera Events called us and told us about this incredible wedding inspired by pink flamingos and the Grateful Dead, we knew we were in for a treat! Held at Ovation, swirls of war oranges, pinks and peach filled with room. Gold candle holders and vessels added warmth and Julie Franzosa Photography captured it all!
