New Years Eve Wedding Inspiration

Posted on April 6th, by Life in Bloom in blog, Event Design Trends. No Comments

There is something extra special about a New Years Eve wedding. The combination of two special occasions has really become a favorite amongst Chicago couples and we keep seeing a rise in popularity. Whether it is the glamour and hype that surrounds the night, or the convenience of an “off-season” wedding, New Years Eve weddings have become a Life in Bloom favorite. With a New Years Eve wedding, you are given the opportunity to get a little more creative with fun ideas for escort cards, favors, large focals, ceiling treatments, fun lighting elements, dance floor graphics, and more! We can not wait to see what is in store for NYE 2017! Here is our New Year’s Eve wedding inspiration board: Cheers!

Black ring box/Mrs. Box would be a beautiful contrast and match with the stationery. Lots of mixed metals happening! Source 6. Pop of contrast with the flower girls in black tulle! So precious yet still edgy. Source 7. Gold metal room divider turned into a place card holder, love a little DIY! Source 8.

Spring Nature Museum Wedding

Posted on March 31st, by Life in Bloom in blog, Event Recaps. No Comments

Leon Young and Sae Jun had the most beautiful spring wedding at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum filled with ranunculus, peonies, garden roses and a plethora of tiny textural blooms that made guests feel as though they were transported to an english cottage garden!

The two were married in the Museum’s stone terrace where we created a birchwood arch which we accented with a delicate trailing garland of Italian Ruscus, Garden Pots on each side, as well as a romantic sheer white drape. After the ceremony, guests were able to access the butterfly exhibit for cocktail hour where butterflies fly around and occasionally land on you (if you’re lucky)!

Romantic stemmed candles adorned the lush stemmed compote arrangements at each table of the reception. Some special touches to their wedding included an all-lily of the valley bouquet for the bride and the most beautiful escort card arrangement made up of spirea, bells of Ireland, and viburnum.

We wish all the best to this sweet couple! Their gorgeous photos were shot by the ever talented, Matushek Photography.

Chicago History Museum Wedding

Posted on March 21st, by Life in Bloom in blog, Event Recaps. 1 Comment

Classic beauty is the best way we can describe this Chicago History Museum wedding. Our sweet couple, Kyle and David, with the help of Shannon Gail  planned the perfect Chicago fall wedding.

The outdoor ceremony was set on the back terrace of the Chicago History Museum which has a lush background of green trees and grasses. The romantic, all white fabric chuppah with floral tie backs made a dramatic statement for the spot they will always remember saying “I do”. Ann & Kam Photo captured this moment and the entire day beautifully as always.

Kyle’s bouquet was filled with garden roses, ranunculus, scabiosa, lisianthus, seeded eucalyptus, and other textures all in a white and blush palette with green accents. The ceremony had a combination of tall and low floral arrangements with a heavy focus on foliage with the perfect touch of blush and ivory flower.  The perfect balance of loose meets tailored, the large arrangements stood tall and captivating throughout the main ballroom!

All-in-all it was definitely a wedding we will always remember at Life in Bloom and we wish Kyle and David the best for their future together!
