Emmerson Creek Barn Wedding

Posted on August 26th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Chelsey and John were married at Emmerson Creek Barn this past summer.  The barn and tent were filled with lots of color, a bit of rustic charm and plenty of vintage touches.

The bridesmaid’s pastel bouquets popped off their coral lace dresses perfectly while Chelsea’s bouquet of coral charm peonies, peach garden roses, blush lisianthus, ivory dahlias, and lots of other textures complimented her bridal gown wonderfully.

Chelsea worked with a vintage rentals company to select her reception vessels which consisted of silver trays, a trio of milk glass vases, crystal vessels, and polished silver teapots.  The texture of the silver teapots was captivating and created that perfectly aged aesthetic on the tables!  We filled them all with a colorful palette of wildflower blooms which really popped in the tent.  Lidia & Rueben of Codrean Photography were there to capture every detail perfectly.

Royal Park Hotel Fall Wedding

Posted on August 22nd, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Jen & David were married at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, Michigan this past Fall.  Two things to note.  1. Yes, we do travel! and 2. Rochester is the most adorable little town!  I wish I had more time to explore the cute city.

We did Jen’s sister Kate’s wedding in one of our first full wedding seasons and I was thrilled when Jen contacted me about her own wedding!  Kate’s bridal bouquet was one of my all time favorite’s and Jen’s was yet another.  Both of these sister’s have great taste in floral 🙂

Jen came to us with a fabulous vision for a Rifle Paper Company Inspired wedding.  We started with a color palette of peach, orange, ivory & greenery.  We used lots of textures in the centerpieces including orange amaryllis, peach garden roses, feathery white astilbe, orange ilex berries, ivory & orange dahlias, orange ranunculus, peach stock and lots of greenery!  Half of the centerpieces consisted of shimmering gold mercury glass compotes with that gorgeous floral mix, while the other half of the tables hosted rustic brown lanterns surrounded with wreaths of greenery.  Orange amaryllis, persimmons and spray roses accented the wreaths.  The head table featured a long & lush garland filled with peach, ivory, and orange blooms with lots of berries and persimmons tucked in.

Jen’s bouquet was composed of peach garden roses, white anemone, peach stock, cream colored roses, and delicate queen anne’s lace, with a pop of bright orange ranunculus.  Olive and jasmine vine trailed throughout the bouquet creating an organic & loose look.  The bridesmaids carried similar bouquets to Jen’s and one of my favorite details were the flower girl crowns.  They looked so adorable on the girl’s and they just happened to be the same flower girl’s as Kate’s wedding :).

Jen & David, thanks for inviting us up to Rochester, MI for a weekend of fun!  It was such a joy to work with you both and create some gorgeous blooms!

Galleria Marchetti Chicago Wedding

Posted on August 17th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Sarah and Alex were one of the sweetest couples we have ever met here at Life in Bloom. From the very beginning we knew they were going to be lovely to work with and they were just that. Their Galleria Marchetti Wedding was set on one of the hottest days of the summer, but that didn’t stop Sarah from looking unbelievably stunning and it certainly did not drain their spirits one bit. The two even stopped for ice cream during their pictures, that’s our kind of couple!

The ceremony was set outside in front of Galleria’s large trellis. We draped white fabric from beam to beam to add a hint of romance as well as added chair decor to match the color palette. Guests were greeted with a moss “N” that hung on the gates of Galleria to signify their new last initial. Our boxwood wall hung a timeline of their years together and even ended with their first look on the same day that planners, La Belle Fleur Events, had developed before the ceremony.

Inside the tented reception was a white, blush and gray palette. Silver compotes, candles, and lanterns filled the reception tables where Sarah and Alex’s closest family and friends enjoyed dinner and dancing. We wish Sarah and Alex all the best in their new adventure together!

The entire day was captured by the talented Two Birds Photography, check out highlights of their day below!
