Love is Love

We’ve been going through our archives, enjoying some strolls down memory lane (with 17 years, there are a lot of beautiful memories! In honor of Pride month, we wanted to share one of our all time favorite couples with you - Connie & Jessie. These beautiful souls have become dear friends, and we hope you enjoy these gorgeous photos at The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, taken by Amanda Hein Photography and coordinated by Greatest Expectations! We truly believe, Love is Love.

Shop Kitty is Home!

Our hearts are overwhelmed with gratitude and love today. Thank you to each and everyone of you who was so supportive yesterday. As many of you know, our sweet, cuddly little old ladt, Shop Kitty aka Sweet Pea was taken from our boutique. We posted an image from the security camera of the woman who took her and immediately it shared, comments flooded in, and we received hundreds of direct messages of people showing their concern. We read stories from some of you who shared images of their own pets, some of you who recently lost your fur babies and we met a woman who told us that Shop Kitty is the reason that she decided to adopt a cat as well (It was very hard to contain the waterfall tears at that moment). Thank you to all of you for your love. We mean it. We’ve tried to respond to all the messages, but there are so many we may miss some, which is why we want to thank you over and over and over here. Thank you for your concern, you fast action to share and positive words. Shop Kitty is one loved little nugget of joy that has been with Fleur since day one!

Shop Kitty was returned to us 2 hours after our post. She is happy and ran straight to her favorite bed. She took her medications, she had extra snuggles and maybe even an extra treat. She’s sitting in the sun right now, her favorite spot to lounge and greet customers.

Thank you to all the news stations and publications that reached out to help us find her. This includes WGN, FOX, NBC, ABC, the Tribune and Block Club. If you would like to read what happened, check out the story on Block Club right HERE, and the follow up story after she was returned HERE.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, we are so so so happy to have her back home.

In order to turn this traumatic day, we decided that this weekend, May 18th & 19th, we will be donating 10% of our profits to Harmony House for Cats.!

An extra note to all our friends. Please make sure your animals have chips and that they are updated if the case you move, change your name if you get married. If you want to help animals, volunteer at an animal shelter. Raise money for a shelter. Foster an animal. Instead of receiving birthday presents, ask for donations for a shelter. There are many ways to responsibly care for animals!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

We are always inspired by the colors of Mexico, and thought that today, one day before Cinco de Mayo, is the perfect time to share these photos from a shoot we worked on this past autumn. Designed by Lindsay Campbell on behalf of West Elm, this is truly the perfect May 5th fiesta for us! Held at Farrand Hall and photographed by Belen Acquino Photography, we hope you enjoy! And at the very bottom, take a peek at some of our favorite Logan Square Mexican Restaurants!

There are SO many delicious Mexican restaurants in Logan Square, here are just a few of our favorites!

El Cid

Always friendly and always delicious, we can’t count how many tacos we’ve eaten here over the years. The back patio is especially special, too - you’ll forget you’re even in Chicago!

El Cid Chicago

Mi Tocaya Antojeria

To quote their website, “A menu as diverse and colorful as our heritage.” We could not agree more! We wish we could eat here every night! The food is delicious and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Their cocktail list is extra special too!

L’Patron

Laid back, tacos & Mexican street food. What more could you want??

Lonesome Rose

Blueberry Delight

Some time back we worked created a centerpiece for our dear friend Clary Pfeiffer. Inspired by blueberries, she took these beautiful images of dying paper and making blueberry frosting. Paired with gorgeous calligraphy from our friend Layers of Loveliness, this shoot is pretty much perfect. Enjoy these few images, but check out the full post on Magnolia Rouge!

Cute to Bout

Boutonnieres or pocket squares? Of course we’re biased, we love a little flower tucked into the lapels of suits and tuxedos. There is something delightfully classic and romantic about accessorizing with a touch of nature. The word “Boutonniere” is French for “Buttonhole Flower, and back in the 16th century these were worn to ward off evil or ill luck. They added a little bit of fragrance & hide less pleasant scents. For a time they were worn on battlefields, denoting the family you represented (Funny that we haven’t seen more flowers in Game of Thrones, come to think of it).

These days boutonnieres are most often seen worn at special occasions. Celebrations such as weddings, proms or a very special date. In the past we saw a single carnation or rose, but fortunately now they are very personalized. Sometimes they are chosen to match other flowers in a wedding, and often we’ve included a stem or two to recognize heritage. We’ve included thistle for a groom who was born in Scotland. We’ve also added rosemary to some, representing remembrance and as a nod to the couple’s love for cooking together.

Here are just a few of our favorite boutonnieres. Classic and also not classic, we hope you enjoy!

A lovely Wedding at Bridgeport Art Center

Wedding day dreaming. It’s our “slow time” in the studio, which only means that we’re working in a different way. A little less actual flower making, and whole lot of flower planning. Our hands are itching to create, but at least we have these beautiful photos to remind us that wedding season will soon be upon us. We love the understated design of Clary & Seth’s blooms at the Bridgeport Art Center. The details of the candlelit escort table, and the beautiful table numbers are simply romantic. Art of Imagination created a stunning backdrop for the ceremony, and Estera Events coordinated the day perfectly. Thank you to Loren Weddings for the gorgeous photos!

Sleek and Garden Inspired at City Winery.

It’s that time of year when most Chicagoans are missing summer, it is after all an incredible season in this lovely city. Which makes sense why we are always the busiest during that time, working on so many beautiful weddings. When the weather cooperates, there is nothing better than a gorgeous outdoor ceremony. Which reminded us of this beautiful and elegant, sleek yet garden inspired wedding at City Winery.

The ceremony was kept simple with a white frame and fabric, the back row of chairs matching. Peppered throughout were floral installations of blooms and foliage, triangular terrariums of blooms and inside guests danced under a trellis of suspended greenery and foliage. Lush blooms and lots of candles filled with reception tables. We hope you enjoy this wedding with photography by Jill Tiongco Photography and planning by Shannon Gail Events!

Chicago Athletic Association Wedding with Alisha Tova

We’ve said it before & we’ll most certainly say it again - we absolutely LOVE working at the Chicago Athletic Association. The view of Lake Michigan is perfect, the ceilings and chandeliers are a joy and it’s easy to add decor to. For this wedding we kept things simple. Ivories and greens and lots of candle light (You can never go wrong). Enjoy the beautiful images from Alisha Tova Photography!

A Quintessential Chicago Wedding at Morgan's on Fulton

This morning it was snowing. Well, it was actuating ice falling from the sky. We’re all nature lovers over here and generally love all the seasons, but today we didn’t mind reminiscing about this beautiful summer wedding. Held outdoors on the roof of Morgan’s on Fulton, it’s pretty much the quintessential Chicago summer wedding! Coordination was planned by our girls, Estera Events and photos are from A Couple of Dudes Photography.

We thought the rose napkin accents kept the wedding warm and sweet. Overall, we simply adore this color palette! And we loved hanging all the greenery from the cafe lights outside. This also gives a garden-like feel for the city!

Elegant at the Chicago Athletic Association

Chicago weddings are so elegant. And weddings held at the Chicago Athletic Association are especially stunning. The history of the building and the incredible view, the architecture and lighting - everything is pretty much perfect in our eyes. We’re thrilled to share the beautiful images from Ann & Kam Photography of this beautiful day with LK Events. In the Madison Ballroom, our copper chuppah is adorned with floating orchids & the aisle is lined with over 100 candles and over 700 rose petals. The White City Ballroom has a collection of tall and low centerpieces, and candlelight galore. We loved every minute of it, and hope you do as well!

Autumn Wedding at the Saddle & Cycle Club

Autumn weddings are so lovely and perfect. The color palette can run from vibrant and bold, mix in with rich rusts and rose gold, or bring in a little classic white and green with soft seasonal hues. That’s what you’ll see in this beautiful wedding at the Saddle & Cycle Club. The images from one of our favorites, Natalie Probst Photography are truly beautiful!

An Intimate Wedding at North Pond

There is nothing more romantic than an intimate wedding in one of your favorite restaurants. Located in Lincoln Park, this stunning Arts & Crafts building is so special. Originally built as a shelter for ice skaters, its rich history has provided the city with much love. The view isn’t too bad either.

We were delighted to fill the inside of the restaurant with gorgeous centerpieces, appearing to grow directly out of the table, add candle light and glow and transform the space into a secret garden. Enjoy these beautiful photos from Tuan B & Co of this dreamy wedding coordinated by Bride + Joy Weddings.
