Dreamy Beach Wedding Inspiration

Posted on June 15th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Inspired by both the colors as well as the textures of sea-glass, sand, and driftwood, this beach-wedding inspired shoot came together flawlessly to prove once and for all that beauty can be found in even the haziest of days.  Tamara Gruner Photography captured this timeless example of boy meets girl where sand meets waves in a way that feels so raw and yet invigorating.

We were delighted to be a part of such an amazing shoot and loved getting to work with such amazing vendors (see complete list below).  Enjoy some of the stunning photos right here… and to see more of this beautiful shoot, featured on style me pretty, click on the link below!

Chicago Wedding Venues

Posted on March 31st, by Life in Bloom in blog. 1 Comment

Today we are chatting about some of the most spectacular wedding venues/event spaces that Chicago has to offer.  There are wide variety of venues to choose from in this wonderful city and we wanted to highlight some of our favorites.

1. Cafe Brauer

I may be a little biased, but since my husband and I got married here it will always hold a special place in my heart.  With the gorgeous prairie style architecture and the spectacular views of Lincoln Park and the city skyline as seen from the loggias, what’s not to love?  It’s a beautiful oasis for a Chicago wedding set in the middle of the park.  Perfect for those couples wanting a downtown Chicago wedding with the feel of the outdoors & nature as well.  Photos by Kina Wicks Photography.

2. Garfield Park Conservatory

This space is a real gem hidden in the west side of Chicago.  Nestled amongst some beautiful gardens, there are so many gorgeous spaces both inside and out of the Conservatory including horticulture hall, the fern room, and many more.  This ceremony & reception (seen below) at the Conservatory was one of our favorite weddings that we produced this past year.

Indie Wed 2015

Posted on March 24th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

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!!


MCA Wedding

Posted on March 8th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Modern, Colorful, CB2: These were all adjectives that Christina and Jimmy used to describe the vision for their Summer wedding at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA).  We loved their direction of CB2 as inspiration and really took it upon ourselves to create an atmosphere that encapsulated that fun and contemporary style while adding our own fresh approach.

For starters, the guests found their place-cards nestled amongst a spread of white pebbles and a collection of succulents to start the night off right with a clean modern feel (and who doesn’t love succulents?)

As the sun set, the bistro lights that hung over the tables on the terrace started to glow and filled the space with an enchanting mood that only summer nights in a big city can bring about. The table centerpieces consisted of geometric terrariums, oversized glass cloches, dusty blue cylindrical vases, and long rectangular glass vases, all filled with an equally vibrant array of flowers.

The collection of flowers consisted of Protea, Garden Roses, Spray Roses, Billy-Balls, Succulents, and Dahlias, with accents of pink stock, air-plants, and geranium to add texture.

As is the case with any great wedding, the success is always found in the details.  From the beautifully designed wedding … Read More »
