Flower wall at BHLDN for Brides Magazine

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!

A very Thankful Thanksgiving

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.

XO

A Classic, Germania Place Celebration

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!

Watercolor & Floral Arranging Class!

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!

New Year's Eve at the Chicago Athletic Association

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!

The Big Night at Near North Montessori 2017

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!

Magnolia at the Polo Club

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!!
