19 East Fall Wedding

Posted on January 11th, by Life in Bloom in blog, Event Recaps. No Comments

As much as we love a classic spring palette, there is something about fall colors that stand out amongst the rest. Christina and Mark’s Fall Wedding at 19 East was one of our absolute favorites. Not one detail was missed with Christina’s fall-chic style and the help of Wrap it Up Events.

The ceremony and reception both took place at 19 East, which has a striking simplicity to the overall space, with an industrial undertone.

For the ceremony, a birch arch was covered in a lush floral garland and the aisle was flanked with two large and extremely textural arrangements. Other amazing details could be found in the boxwood wall for the escort cards, some uber-chic velvet furniture for the lounge groupings, and subtle touches of artichoke here and there.

The bridesmaid’s bouquets were filled with cafe au lait dahlias, garden roses, ranunculus, scabiosa, and multiple types of greenery. Christina stayed with a classic all-white bouquet, which made perfect sense once we saw her stunning beaded gown that really stole the show.

When we originally began planning with Mark and Christina, we created a rendering for their wedding to give them a visual of what we had in mind for the room. Below we have photos of the day … Read More »

Bridal Fete Chicago

Posted on May 20th, by Life in Bloom in blog, Weddings & Events, Weddings and Events. No Comments

In February we had the honor of participating in Bridal Fete Chicago’s bouquet bar.  Their famed bouquet bar displayed bouquets from a dozen or so of some talented florists in Chicago.  The event was held at Roosevelt University in the Loop, which is SUCH a gorgeous place for a special event!  For our bouquet we opted for a vibrant palette of luscious pink peonies, always amazing Cafe Au Lait Dahlias, pale pink Ranunculus, a touch of checkered Fritillaria and acacia foliage.  We finished off the look with delicate white & pink bi-color Clematis.  I didn’t order them specifically for this bouquet but my salesperson, Laura, pulled them out for me since she knows how much I love Clematis and I just couldn’t resist them!  I think they added the perfect finishing touch to the bouquet.

Enjoy the lovely images below from Carasco Photo of the event and the bouquet we made.

Picnic Themed Engagement Session

Picnic Themed Engagement Session

Life in Bloom was so excited to provide the floral for this insanely gorgeous engagement session.  Corrie & Dan are such a sweet and adorable couple and these pictures from their engagement session are simply gorgeous.  Themed engagement sessions and props are fun ways to spice up your photos and make the picture taking less awkward since most of us aren’t models and haven’t been professionally photographed.

Kina Wicks asked us to provide a simple floral arrangement in neutral tones for this picnic themed engagement session.  We were SO EXCITED to see the final outcome and were amazed at how well everything coordinated.  Seriously, those macaroons are adorable.

For the bouquet, we used Café Au Lait Dahlias, which are my absolute favorite dahlia and probably one of my favorite flowers in general.  They are a perfect Fall flower for those of you planning autumn weddings.  We combined the Dahlias with Neutral Roses, peach stock, and a touch of filler to add some texture.  I’ll have to admit that this was one of my favorite creations thus far and it was hard to hand it off to Kina.   Fortunately I knew that she would take some amazing pictures with them, … Read More »
