Tag: Chicago History Museum Wedding
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!

If you have ever been to the Chicago History Museum, you know how incredibly beautiful the space is. So it was important to our couple, Rachel and Aaron, that we create a look that fit the preppy, yet elegant venue.
We had the pleasure of working with Emily of Five Grain Events which was a treat because by the time the couple came to us, they had a pretty clear idea of the style that they were after. Overall they wanted to create a fresh, organic feel, and to do that we started off by creating a custom walnut-stained Chuppah to give an organic feel to the ceremony. From the Chuppah, we draped a lush garland accented with white spray roses and peonies and intertwined it with a fabric cover that had been passed down from the Groom’s family.
Flanking the start of each aisle were two urns filled with an oversized arrangement of olive branches. Each chair along the aisle was accented with the cutest little bouquets consisting of spray roses, seeded eucalyptus, and olive.
After the ceremony, guests mingled in the foyer where they found their dinner seating assignments hung on a boxwood-covered wall, keeping with the overall green feel of the wedding. Upon entering the main ballroom, the simplicity of the tall olive arrangements was captivating. A 20’+ garland adorned the … Read More »

Because Andrea is also in the wedding industry, we were so honored that she chose us to bring her floral vision to life!
The color palette of blush, ivory, & lavender that Andrea chose was a perfect compliment to the season and also to their venue. The Chicago History Museum is stunning!
