The University Club is one of the most dramatic and beautiful places in the city for a wedding, and this glowing, fresh and green celebration was the perfect compliment to the space. We're thrilled to share these photos from Ann & Cam Photography. And, to make the day even more perfect, we were working with Clementine Custom Events, who coordinated everything better than you can dream. A perfectly grand and beautiful day!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
This past October we loved this wedding at the Saddle & Cycle Club with Greatest Expectations! So many beautiful and soft colors, and the loveliest and happiest sunflowers for the ceremony! We used cedar from the family's property to be included in the bridal party bouquets and boutonnieres. It could not have been sweeter!
Every year we are always so honored to be a part of the Martha Stewart Wedding Party, brought to Chicago by The Wedding Library and Lovebird Events. And each year we're thrilled to try new designs and showcase new items from our prop collection. The year was terribly exciting as we sponsored the show, adding our garden designs throughout the Ritz Carlton. It's such a fun show, filled with incredible vendors, and we are truly thrilled and humbled to a part of the day! Here are some photos from Amanda Megan Miller Photography of our work, and don't forget to take a look at Darcy's Diary for a little more! XO!
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!
In September we worked with one of our absolute fav's, Jayne Weddings. This girl creates the most beautiful events that are elegant but have that little touch of DIY so they're the most personal event you'll attend. The venue, Salvage One (always perfect) was glowing and the photos from Studio Finch captured all of the love! Congratulations to Mary & Hugh!
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.
We were so excited to work with Emma and Scott on their wedding this past August. The flowers were soft and romantic, timeless and elegant. All some of our favorite adjectives! And the team was absolutely amazing to no end! Tying the Knot, Entertaining Company, The Bridgeport Art Center Skyline Loft & the amazing photos from T & S Hughes Photography!
The Chicago History Museum is one of the most beautiful location in the city for a wedding. Every time we work at this location we are so excited! Here are some images from a beautiful wedding in April.
