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!

Classic at the Country Club

This morning we were thrilled to see that one of our favorite classic weddings was featured on one of our favorite blogs.  A ceremony overlooking Lake Michigan was the perfect backdrop for a tailored but romantic collection of blooms.  It was the perfect afternoon coordinated by SQN Events at the Shoreacres Country Club.  Kina Wicks Photography beautifully captured these photos, and you can see a full post on Carats and Cake!

Julie & Laura

Julie and Laura we're one of the most fun couples to work with.  Dealing with some pretty intense floral allergies, we curated a list of blooms that were bright, textural and not likely to make anyone sneeze or break into hives (Truly not a good look on a wedding day).  The result was happy, modern and glowing!  Greatest Expectations coordinated a wonderful team including Steve Koo Photography, Courtney Callahan Paper & Ignite Glass Studios.

Cheers!


November at the Langham Hotel

Last November was one of our favorite weddings.  Reception held at the Langham Hotel, the palette was elegant, soft and approachable.  The dreamy and exquisite photos from Clary Pfeiffer capture the day perfectly! A huge congratulations to Caroline and Brian!

Mid Century at Hotel Allegro

We couldn't believe it when Kina Wicks Photography sent us a sneak peek of one of our May weddings already!  This clean line, beautiful wedding at Hotel Allegro is just enough classic, gorgeous and glowing & has a little hint of sparkle.  Fluffy blooms paired with clean lines and fun candle holders, we loved all the details.  And Estera Events came on board for some of the finishing touches and details.  Overall, quite the perfect day.

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!

A New Blog, A New Day...

It's been a while since we've posted on the blog.  We updated our website (Thanks to the amazing and talented Janelle of Refind Joy), and our old blog didn't exactly transfer over to the new site.  We're not upset about this, we think it's the perfect opportunity to start fresh.  After all, we are settled into our new home at 2651 N Milwaukee, loving our storefront and preparing for wedding season.  It's a very exciting year for Fleur!  In the meantime, enjoy these photos from Orange 2 Photography of one of our summer clients, and thank you for your patience as we slowly rebuild our blog!

Sarah & Stan at the MCA

OH!  This is the time of year I die a little, because all of the photos of our weddings are trickling in from our wonderful photographer friends.  Like this wedding with Pen Carlson Photography.  I mean, it's everything we love.  Romance and candles and the Museum of Contemporary Art and Estera Events and Art of Imagination.  Not to mention the sweetest couple in the world.

Enjoy, and many happy years of love to Sarah & Stan!!

(PS Don't forget our new address:  2651 N Milwaukee, Chicago IL 60647)

Bridal bouquet by Fleur, photo by Olivia Leigh Photographie

I had to start this post with just the most beautiful cascading bouquet, captured by Olivia Leigh Weddings.  This wedding, teamed with Estera Events, is such a perfect mix of a wild, overgrown garden in the center of history.  Taking place at the Chicago Cultural Center, I can't stop looking at the photos.  And Sarah Drake's gorgeous paper products are a wonderful, ethereal touch to the details of the day!  Oh, and let's not forget the beautiful copper vessels from Refind Joy!!

Congratulations to Emily & Angelo!!

We can't believe that a couple months back we didn't share these photos with you from a romantic wedding at Salvage One!  The ranunculus and garden roses in these designs kind of blew our minds.  Enjoy!!

Allison & David

You KNOW events with Jayne Weddings are going to be absolutely spectacular, and that is absolutely the case with Allison & David's wedding at Loft on Lake.  The colors, marbled table runners, ceramic & brass containers from Re:find Joy & photography from Pen Carlson are just all perfect combination.  This is definitely one of our favorite weddings ever!  Congratulations to Allison & David!!

My dear friend & the talented photographer, Jaclyn Simpson, sent me these photos earlier in the week.  They are of a bouquet we made for her Mother, who was just wed her sweetheart in a conservatory.  It's always an honor to create something for a family friend!

April ain't no fool!

April is here, which means that wedding season is in full gear!  We've had a sprinkle of weddings and events throughout the past few months, but now it starts.  And we can't be more excited, the flowers are going to be incredible.  To top it off, we're already receiving shipments from some of our local growers - today is the 1st one with anemones and ranunculus!!  This is going to be a very exciting season.

Elaina & Anthony, two chefs & a wedding!

It's so very exciting when friends in the wedding industry celebrate their own wedding!  I was over the moon when the talented Elaina from Boutique Bites had asked to meet with us regarding her flowers.  She had teamed up with Beth from SQN Events to plan a romantic and culinary divine wedding at Tru Restaurant, where her fiancé (now husband!) is chef.  This wedding was SO much fun to work on, Elaina's spunk and excitement was infectious.  The end result of glow and enchantment was simply beautiful.

Congratulations to Elaina & Anthony!!
