I thought it was appropriate to share, since Chicago will actually be enjoying some sunshine and warm weather this weekend. We have SO many photos to dig through and blog about. 2011 has been a truly beautiful year, and to be quite honest, 2012 is looking pretty hot as well.
Remember Pip & Brian?
Well, they're all done & hitched, living the newlywed life! I truly mean it when I say this couple is just outstanding. Looking through their flowers I mostly remember the smiles they both wore all day long. They couldn't have been happier.
Here are just a few teasers from Jamie Hartley Photography. Her new website will be up soon!
All the centerpieces were arranged in milk glass pedestals. So pretty!! My milk glass collection is a bit crazy, and rather than pack them all away in boxes, they are stacked on a shelf in our prep room so they can be admired all day long.
And even though it's December, I don't think it's too late (or early?) to look at images of these gorgeous Toulouse Lautrec yellow garden roses. And those beautiful dahlias!
The ceremony was at the Columbus Park Refectory which offers such a regal and elegant back ground for the ceremony (The link right there shows images from Vrai Photography of another wedding we worked on at the space!).
Simply Jessie took all these amazing photos.
And Sarah Drake Design created some paper and fabric adorableness.
We created a little sweet heart table for them at the Inn above Longman & Eagle, which Robert designed and built. Any of my out of town friends will indeed be staying here. In fact, I'm ready to move in. It's fresh, simple and filled with repurposed material. And there is a cassette desk. Oh man, don't you remember making mix tapes??! Mix cd's just don't cut it.
This table setting is honestly one of my favorites. It's a bit rustic with the grape vine and birch on the table, yet filled with somewhat traditional and lush blooms. But still modern with those amazing bitch etched wine glasses (We sell them at Fleur) and the awesome yellow chairs. The colors.., light blue, yellow and cream are wonderful for the season as well. I love the blue-yellow combo in general these days.
