Magnolia at the Polo Club

This wedding truly made us happy.  Add giant magnolia centerpieces to black taper candlesticks. Include lush, foliage heavy centerpieces and terra cotta lanterns.  Charcuterie plates from Boutique Bites and Estera Events there to coordinate it all, and you're left with the most beautiful wedding at the Arranmore Polo Club under a clear tent with 1000's of sparkling lights.  Truly a Fleur favorite!  Natalie Probst Photography captured everything so perfectly!!

"I will feel a glow..."

"I will feel a glow just thinking about you, & the way you look tonight."

This past September we had celebrated a beautiful wedding at Room 1520 with Urban Allure Events.  The mother of the bride had impeccable taste, curating candles and garlands across the ceremony and reception.  Soft blush, champagne, ivory and sage accented the glow and heavy foliage & Todd James Photography captured everything as if you were inside a dream.  Also, the greenery backdrop and draping from Art of Imagination could not have been more perfect!  Such a beautiful wedding that we adore!

Winter whites at the Chicago Athletic Association

New Year's Eve weddings are one of our favorites, and this year was so perfectly elegant and beautiful at the Chicago Athletic Association.  We know the professional photos will be available soon, but here are a few peeks.  Jayne Weddings styled the evening perfectly, with creamy winter colors and lots of glow.  The gunni eucalyptus has the perfect coloring, the roses are so rich and lovely.  Overall, this was the best way for us to end 2016 and ring in the new year.

Green & lovely at the University Club!

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!

Flowerstock

Lately it's been so busy around here, between holidays, weddings, paperwork, end of year wrap ups, family - I don't really feel as though I have the time to update photos and fun things that have been happening.  I've been wanting to share with you some photos from one of the most fun experiences of my life - Flowerstock.  I was completely honored when Holly Chapple called and asked if I would demonstrate.  Teaching in front of a bunch of incredibly talented floral designers is no joke.  So arriving in Virginia, I felt a little nervous until my cab came upon Holly's beautiful farm.  Smiling faces, rolling hills of trees just turning color, flowers everywhere and a thrilling energy in the air.  I always feel a few jitters before standing in front of people, but this weekend I felt more confident than ever.  Friends, flowers, live music, classes, education, nature and so much more!  I think all business owners sometimes doubt ourselves during some point of our careers, and this little opportunity reminded me of how much I love my business.  Enjoy just a few photos of some of one of my favorite weekends in 2016!  

 

 

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!

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.

Sunny October Disposition

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!

Martha Stewart Wedding Party 2016

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!
