Fleur in CS Brides

It's always an honor to be featured in publications, and I'm thrilled to share this one with you from Chicago Social Brides.  You can read the online magazine HERE, but in the meantime enjoy the write up from last year's Eleven-Eleven Wedding Giveaway!  This could not have arrived at a more perfect time, because we just met Amy & Howard, the winners of the 11-11-11 wedding!  They were just a pure delight to meet and I loved creating a vision with them.  I knew we were making some incredible progress when Amy loved the ideas so much that she welled up with tears.  I'm sure that's the first of many times she and Howard will be excited about all of the wonderful vendors involved.  And Amy.., you can't do that again.  You saw me start to well up too!!!!  Congratulations once again to Amanda & Mike (featured below) and Amy & Howard!!

The 11-11-11 Wedding Giveaway!!!!

Remember a year ago when we told you all about that amazing 11-11 wedding giveaway?  Greatest Expectations are so wonderful to once again offer this amazing opportunity, and there isn't a lot of time left to enter!  You can see the details HERE!


This is a truly special giveaway.  Your dress, catering, venue, cake and *flowers* are all provided.  And so much more.  And even though it's all part of the giveaway, we still want you to customize the look and feel of the day so it represents *your* vision!  In case you don't know what we mean, see for yourself!  Below are some images Amanda Hein took from last year's wedding.

The bride (also named Amanda!) loved purple and we included vanda orchids in her bridal bouquet, among anemones, privet and brunia.

Also a few polo roses added in among dusty miller.


I love these nora blue mokara orchid boutonnieres.  Fishing flies were added onto them for a personal touch.


Who wouldn't want Amanda Hein to photograph their wedding?!  These images are just dreamy!

Yes, even the dress & tux are part of this contest.  Amanda picked out a gown that looks drop dead gorgeous!

Oh!  And the bridesmaid's dresses.  Yup.  Included as well!

Our vintage blue mason jars lined the aisle atop pillars and Amanda & Mike were wed under a romantic and beautiful floral wreath.



And we provided the window frame chalk boards that displayed not only the menu, but the most important message of all:

Once again, congratulations to Amanda & Mike on their 11-11 wedding!  Don't forget to enter HERE.  Entries will no longer be taken place after April 15th!

Good Luck!!!!
