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!

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!

Summer at the Chicago Botanical Gardens

It has been a month to the day since we last posted! It’s because this is truly the busiest time of year for us this season. Every weekend we are back to back with the most beautiful events. And one of our favorite things about that is when the photos start to roll in. We hope you enjoy these beautiful images from Annie Steele Photography of a delicious June wedding at the Chicago Botanic Gardens (Naturally, a favorite location of ours!). It was a beautiful afternoon and evening with the lovely BCR Events. This wedding features our favorite floral escort wall, filled with foliage and blooms! Enjoy!

Please Be Seated!

A regular question we receive is, "What's the difference between an escort card and a place card?" The answer is actually very simple.  Your escort card will direct you to the table where you will be enjoying dinner.  The place card will direct you to the exact seat.  Place cards are often at an event that is a little more formal.  Often, we see the head table has place cards, but not the rest of the guest tables.  We love designing escort card displays, they are often the first introduction to the wedding!  Here are a few fun ideas that we've created in the past!

You can keep it very simple!  We love pillar candles and simple flat cards with gorgeous calligraphy like this display at the Langham Hotel.  Photo by Clary Pfeiffer Photography

Make it historical.  Our vintage card display box was used at the Chicago Cultural Center, a former library.  We added lovely foliage and blooms for an overgrown garden touch.  Photo by Olivia Leigh.

European flower market inspired escort display by Fleur Inc at Galleria Marchetti.  Photo by Artistrie Co, planning by LK Events

This was a favorite of ours.  The escort table at Galleria Marchetti was designed after a European flower market.  Clusters of blooms and individual stems were packaged, and at the end of the evening they were the take away gift for guests!  That's our kind of send off gift!  Photo by Artistrie Co

One of our most popular escort displays is our greenery and floral wall.  This versatile wall can be created with foliage, floral, a variety of fabric and more.  We've used velvet and lovely ornaments around the holidays, and boxwood as well.  This design fits so well in many locations, but especially the Chicago Botanical Gardens.  Photo by Annie Steele.

Garden elegance is a term we often hear, and feel as though this design perfectly captures the feeling.  Golds, greens and lots of glow created a beautiful welcome for guests at the Ritz Carlton.  Photo by Amanda Megan Miller

And finally, the classic chalkboard design!  A welcome that will never be old.  It can be rustic or a little more polished.  It was the perfect entrance for this rehearsal dinner at Summer House.  Photo by Kina Wicks.

Emily & Tim at Architectural Artifacts

This past April we were so excited to team up with LK Events for a beautiful and glowing wedding at Architectural Artifacts (coordinated by Artifact Events). This was one of those beautiful weddings when you're so excited during the planning phase.  You can picture the glow, you can see the floral, it's unique but still an incredibly classic Chicago wedding.  These kinds of weddings will never go out of date (Which is one of our goals!).  Taking place in the Ravenswood neighborhood inside the walls of a what feels like the best museum ever (Except that EVERYTHING IS AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE) it is a curio collection that always feels special and important.  Thank you to Emily and Tim for trusting the Fleur Team to be part of such a beautiful day.  We're thrilled to share these beautiful images captured by Olivia Leigh Photographie!

All the Glow at Bridgeport Art Center

In the past we've heard people ask, "Who would get married in the winter in Chicago?" and our response is basically, "The most bad ass couples you can imagine!"  Winter weddings are a true magical event.  There is something about walking into a glowing  venue filled with candle light when it's snowing and frigid outside.  Once you're there, all those winter thoughts melt away and you're left with nothing but warm & romantic vibes.  That was certainly the case at the Bridgeport Art Center Skyline loft this past January.  Such a gorgeous wedding with Lola Event Productions, Jeremy Lawson Photography & Art of Imagination.  Enjoy!!

January at Hotel Allegro

We love us a historic hotel wedding, and this gorgeous evening at Hotel Allegro is no exception.  The ceremony was truly the most glowing affair, with our glass and brass risers and a sea of candles.  The soft floral color palette gave the feeling of winter, yet still felt timeless and almost transcended season.  We adore the photos from Natalie Probst Photography, and the planning from Lola Event Productions was perfect.   Enjoy!
