Wedding Bouquets for Days!

"Life is the flower for which love is the honey." ~ Victor Hugo

We've been working on our archives the past few weeks, and have been trying to choose a favorite wedding bouquet.  THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE.  However, we will say, we delighted in all the images that we have collected, knowing there are so many wonderful couples in love who  trusted us to be a part of their celebration.  Here are a few bouquets we simply adore.  We couldn't choose them all, because there are SO many, so you can expect a second post eventually with even more!

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!

A cherry branch wedding

This May wedding was so classic, beautiful and timeless.  The bride looks like a model (and how about her gown?!!).  The decor is so simple and perfect.  We couldn't love this wedding more.  It was lovely working with Havil and Events at The Kitchen and we're overjoyed with the photos from Jacqueline at Olivia Leigh Photographie & Associates!

Monet inspired at the Redfield Estate

May is always bursting with some of our favorite flowers, which made for the truly perfect design backdrop when the theme is Monet's gardens.  This lush and lovely wedding designed by one our our lead designers, Janessa, came straight out of a painting.  The Redfield Estate couldn't have been a more perfect location, and we were thrilled to work with Clementine Events.  Gerber & Scarpelli captured all these perfect images!

Flamingo, Baby!

Just a week ago we had the pleasure of designing a tropical, Hawaiian themed baby shower for our wonderful and endlessly talented friend, Katie Jayne of Jayne Weddings!  Pink flamingo, feathery peonies and tropical blooms & foliage were the backdrop for this super happy celebration.  We even had our own 11 minute tropical rain storm, to leave us all refreshed!  Amanda Megan Miller snapped some gorgeous photos, and Elysia Root made the most incredible cake!!  We can't wait to meet Katie's little one!

Classic Evenings at the Armour House

This past May we celebrated so many weddings.  This timeless and classic wedding with Bride + Joy Events at the Armour House was such a beautiful day with the most beautiful and sweet couple you can imagine.  Add peonies with a staircase covered in greenery, candles galore and the softest palette, and you are set with a romantic evening that you'll never forget.  Avery House captured these perfect images!

April Wedding at the Union League Club

It's been a month since we've posted, & that's just a small indication of all the amazing designs we were working on throughout the month of May!  The professional photos are beginning to roll in, and we're starting off the season with these romantic images from Sarah Postma Photography.  This gorgeous wedding at the Union League Club was classic and filled with spring blooms.  We couldn't have been happier with such a sweet kick off to the wedding season!

September at the Botanical Garden

Last September we worked on the most beautiful wedding at the Chicago Botanical Gardens.  Flawlessly organized by SQN Events, we could not have been happier with the elegance that included some of our favorite blooms and beautiful wispy foliages.  The ceremony backdrop was an overgrown collection of seasonal greenery and grasses with fresh blooms.  Centerpieces sported mercury glass and contrasting colors.  And the hanging chandelier was whimsical and bright!  Olivia Leigh Photographie captured all the beautiful details.

A January Wedding at the Northmoor Country Club

This past January 17th was truly the coldest day we've had in some time, although you would never know it based on this romantic and glowing wedding created by one of our lead designers, Janessa Knodt at the Northmoor Country Club.  The color palette was so on point and the lanterns were perfect!  We were thrilled that the photographer was Amanda Megan Miller, who captured the absolutely most perfect photos of the day!  Mazel Tov Jamie & Brian!

An Ivy Room Affair

This past April we worked on a beautiful wedding with Jayne Weddings at the Ivy Room.  Absolutely thrilled that Amanda Megan Miller Photography was there to capture the most beautiful photographs of the day, she did not disappoint!  We loved every single aspect of this day!  J & L Catering as always was a dream, and Aged Rentals added some perfect touches.  We could not imagine a better start to the wedding year!

Kinfolk Gathering

Just about a month ago (when the weather was significantly warmer), I was invited by my friend Amanda Jane Jones to participate in the Kinfolk Gathering dinner at Camp Wandawega.  Of course I said yes.  Dinner at my favorite place in the world, and the chef happened to be Jason Hammel from Lula Cafe.  It was an incredible night!  Here are just a few images, but check out the amazing recap from Wandawega right HERE!

But first, check out this amazing video of the night from Richard Original right in
