We had a blast meeting so many wonderful newly engaged couples at Indie Wed this year! For the second straight year, Life In Bloom was present at the January event and we put together another beautiful backdrop to compliment an equally stunning tablescape.
We built a custom trellis as a backdrop and covered it in Italian Ruscus greens, Jasmine Vine, and accents of neutral blooms to complete the natural, organic, mediterranean feel…
Many thanks to Amanda Megan Miller for all the wonderful photos below!!
Missy & Sara were married this summer at the Columbus Park Refectory in Chicago. They had a beautiful outdoor wedding on the terrace officiated by Anita Vaughan and then celebrated with an intimate cocktail reception inside the beautiful Columbus Park Refectory with their closest family & friends.
They chose a brilliant jewel tone color palette of pink, purple, and plum with accents of hunter green. Missy’s bouquet was composed of the most lovely smelling fuchsia garden roses, plum calla lilies, show stopping pink Phalaenopsis orchids, and bright purple anemones to name a few. While Sara’s bouquet was more traditional and primarily white, consisting of hydrangea, roses, and white Phalaenopsis orchids, we incorporated their color palette in the ribbon wrap around her bouquet! The centerpieces were simple, colorful, and modern; composed of hydrangea accented with garden roses and orchids.
Their first look was one of the sweetest we’ve seen (see their excitement below). Congratulations Missy & Sara! Thanks for including us in your special day!

I had the opportunity to design and produce a wedding for my Sister-In-Law, Jessica and now Brother-In-Law, Mike this past spring along with my other sister-in-law, Sheila of Ipomea Floral. Jess & Mike were married at the gorgeous Skyline Loft at the Bridgeport Art Center on a beautiful day in April. Inspired by the deep hues of a city skyline at dusk, Jess and Mike wanted to create an environment that captured the essence of a brilliant sunset and share it with all of their guests… and I must say their vision was perfectly executed! From the seating charts, to the floral palette, in the stained glass, and even in the song that Jessica walked down the aisle to (Phoenix’s ‘Love Like a Sunset’), the sunset looked stunning in this raw space. Now enjoy the beautiful pictures by Matushek Photography and take note of the lush floral arrangements which consisted of white anemone, garden roses, pink ranunculus, coral charm peonies, and pops of thistle to name a few. And how gorgeous are those deep cobalt blue vases!?

This week’s featured flower is the Anemone! We love these beauties. They come in a variety of colors; Red, Light Pink, Fuchsia, Blue, Purple, and White with striking black centers. They also have a white variety with a green center. These flowers look stunning in any type of arrangement. We especially love them in bouquets. Anemones are generally available December through May. If you are planning a Spring Wedding, think about including some of them in your bouquet or centerpieces! Enjoy some of our favorite images incorporating Anemones and Happy Friday!
