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!

All the glows at The Ivy Room

The colors, the glowing candles, the incredible had table and the most lovely couple, this wedding is hands down in the Top 5 Fleur Favorites of 2018!

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!

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..."

"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!

Winter whites at the Chicago Athletic Association

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.
