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!
New Year's Eve weddings are one of our favorites, and this year was so perfectly elegant and beautiful at the Chicago Athletic Association. We know the professional photos will be available soon, but here are a few peeks. Jayne Weddings styled the evening perfectly, with creamy winter colors and lots of glow. The gunni eucalyptus has the perfect coloring, the roses are so rich and lovely. Overall, this was the best way for us to end 2016 and ring in the new year.
Really, I just want to say Happy New Year. And thank you to all of you who always have and continue to believe in small businesses.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. XO
The University Club is one of the most dramatic and beautiful places in the city for a wedding, and this glowing, fresh and green celebration was the perfect compliment to the space. We're thrilled to share these photos from Ann & Cam Photography. And, to make the day even more perfect, we were working with Clementine Custom Events, who coordinated everything better than you can dream. A perfectly grand and beautiful day!
We were completely honored to be asked to participate in the launch of BBJ'S Marble Linen Collection. Here are a few images from it. The linens are truly amazing - textured and very versatile, absolutely a statement for your event. Enjoy!
Lately it's been so busy around here, between holidays, weddings, paperwork, end of year wrap ups, family - I don't really feel as though I have the time to update photos and fun things that have been happening. I've been wanting to share with you some photos from one of the most fun experiences of my life - Flowerstock. I was completely honored when Holly Chapple called and asked if I would demonstrate. Teaching in front of a bunch of incredibly talented floral designers is no joke. So arriving in Virginia, I felt a little nervous until my cab came upon Holly's beautiful farm. Smiling faces, rolling hills of trees just turning color, flowers everywhere and a thrilling energy in the air. I always feel a few jitters before standing in front of people, but this weekend I felt more confident than ever. Friends, flowers, live music, classes, education, nature and so much more! I think all business owners sometimes doubt ourselves during some point of our careers, and this little opportunity reminded me of how much I love my business. Enjoy just a few photos of some of one of my favorite weekends in 2016!
