Katie & Keegan at The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum

This past May we worked on such a beautiful wedding in the palette of blue.  Hosted at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, the arrangements reflected wild gardens full of plush garden roses and peonies.  Thrilled to partner with Shannon Gail Weddings, we loved every single detail of this day.  Hanging branches filled with foliage, sweet wreaths, and the most wonderful families.  Enjoy the beautiful photos from T & S Hughes Photography

Elegance & Sparkle at the Knickerbocker

We've held onto these photos for some time, and just love them SO very much!  Always a treat to work with Sarah Postma Photography, she truly captured all the sparkle & elegance of this glittery wedding at the Knickerbocker Hotel.  We couldn't possibly love it any more than we already do!

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!

Virginia & John

This past summer we worked on a beautiful wedding with Virginia & John at Navy Pier.  We teamed with Clementine Events and were thrilled to be working with Matt Haas Photography!  Congratulations to Virginia & John!  

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!

Nikki & Eric

Oh, these photos make me SO happy!  The sparkly dress, the happy colors, all the textures - it's honestly just such a GOOD wedding!  Nikki & Eric have great taste, and it was an absolute honor to work with them on their wedding.  And we couldn't be more tickled that Katie Kett Photography was there to capture the day!  Congratulations to Nikki & Eric!  We loved your wedding at the Ravenswood Event Center!

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!!

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!!

An extra special day

I've been a fan of Martha Stewart since I was a little girl  Before opening Fleur, I've probably made every craft in every magazine (and all the spin offs).  Some of the most delicious recipes that are now engrained in my mind from making them so often are from the cooking archives.  And before I had any inkling of any knowledge of working with flowers, I tore out every page of floral design and gardens (this was all before Pinterest, of course).  When my good friend Janelle text me the other morning that Martha Stewart Weddings had listed the top 25 florists to follow on Instagram and we were number 10, my heart stopped for a second.  I couldn't believe it (and still can't!).  To be included on a list that included some of my favorite designers was an honor that still boggles my mind.  I'm forever grateful to be on this list.  Thanks Martha Stewart, for all the years of inspiration.  Knowing that Fleur can also inspire others is really the best thing I could ever ask for in my life.

You can see the link right HERE, and be sure to follow the other 24 amazing designers too!

The Secret Garden Wedding

I'm not really sure what I liked more about this sweet bride.  Her adorable southern accent or her incredible taste in flowers.  And could she and her mom have been ANY sweeter at all throughout all the planning?  AND the wedding was in a secret garden on the boarder of Michigan? Really?!  Pair that with the most perfect weather, the MOST amazing team in the world, a gazillion taper candles and I am in my little floral heaven.  I can't even wait for the professional photos, here are all the ones I snapped myself.  Thank you to Refind Joy for all the brass pieces!!

Congratulations to Whitney & Bradley!!

Courtney & Keith

Some days you receive that email that fills you with so much excitement and happiness, and that's how we felt today when Clary Pfeiffer sent us the photos of Courtney & Keith's wedding from this past May at the Museum of Contemporary Art.  Absolute joy, these photos are so bright and airy from one of our favorite weddings.  Congratulations, Courtney & Keith!  We wish we could work with you every single weekend!!!

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!!
