Salvage One Wedding

Posted on September 5th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Jenny & Craig were married this summer at Salvage One, and as eclectic of a venue as Salvage One is, the decor elements of their wedding flowed together seamlessly.  Jenny and Craig are such a sweet couple and were such a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process.

Jenny requested blush and romantic flowers for her bouquets and that is what we delivered!  The most gorgeous white and blush fluffy peonies mixed with light peach juliet garden roses, and a little bit of blush sweet pea to tie everything together.  I absolutely loved her bouquet and it smelled like heaven!

For the reception, Jenny provided me with mason jars, some of which her students had helped her dip in glitter, how cute!  The jars combined with the beautiful sequin chevron table runners and the blush floral created a beautiful and relaxed summer inspired atmosphere inside the space.  Jenny & Craig you were both an absolute pleasure to work with and we wish you all the best!!  Now enjoy the stunning images below captured by the amazing photography team of T & S Hughes!

 

 

 

 


Bridgeport Art Center Wedding

Posted on August 27th, by Life in Bloom in blog. 1 Comment

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!?

Organic & Elegant Wedding at Valley Lo

Posted on August 1st, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Lily & David were married at Redfield Grove this past Spring and celebrated with a beautiful reception at the Valley Lo Club in Glenview.  I loved the organic & elegant wedding look they incorporated throughout the whole day.  Kina Wicks captured all the special moments and little details of their wedding day perfectly!  See more of her stunning photos below!

Lily’s bouquet was one of my absolute favorites!  We incorporated the most beautiful blush peonies, pale peach garden roses, sweet-smelling lilac, blush ranunculus along with clematis and lots of greenery to create a loose organic look.  Lily purchased some gorgeous ribbon from Frou Frou Chic which really added another element to this whimsical bouquet and completed the look fantastically.  It was like something out of a dream.

Lily & David’s first look was so precious.  David proposed to Lily in front of this yellow door and they also incorporated it into their first look and wedding ceremony; so cute!

For the centerpieces, we rented an eclectic mix of vintage brass vessels of varying sizes and shapes from Refind Joy.  The floral palette consisted of blush, peach, & coral colors … Read More »


Kenilworth Club Wedding

Posted on July 25th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Silvia & Ron were married in Kenilworth at the Kenilworth Union Church and then celebrated their reception just down the road at the Kenilworth Club.  It was a perfect spring day in May… one that Brides only dream of!

From the moment I met Silvia I knew this wedding was going to be fabulous.  When your bride tells you her color palette is coming directly from a family Kimono, you just know it’s going to be unique and original.  The color scheme was orange, yellow, green, and white, which complimented the Kenilworth Club perfectly.  One of my personal favorite pieces of this wedding was Silvia’s bouquet.  She liked lots of texture and little flowers so we included all the best spring blooms available at that time along with some airplants!  Some of the other blooms that we incorporated were lilac, ranunculus (another favorite), astilbe, agapanthus, and anemone.  Thanks Silvia & Ron for including us in your special day &  thanks to Lilly Photography for the amazing photos below!

Flower Friday

Posted on June 13th, by Life in Bloom in blog, Weddings, Weddings & Events, Weddings and Events. No Comments

Today on the blog is a rare flower favorite.  Rare because it is only available for a smidgen of time in the Spring.  And today’s feature flowers is…Bleeding hearts!!  You will find them blooming in landscapes and wooded areas in the spring-time.  As a child I absolutely LOVED this plant.  It was one of my favorite flowers with it’s delicate heart shaped petals.  Since it’s availability is very spotty, when I saw them at the flower market I knew I had to scoop some up and create an impromptu bouquet with them.  I hope you enjoy it & Happy Friday!

Mid America Club Colorful Spring Wedding

Posted on June 5th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Kate & Joe’s wedding was one for the books with some of the most perfect florals, in my opinion.  Their color palette was filled with gold, blush, and corals.  Kate’s bouquet was by far my favorite thing about this wedding and one of my all-time favorite bouquets to date!  We made a cascading bouquet full of the MOST gorgeous coral charm peonies, peach juliet roses, delicate sweet pea, ranunculus.  I could go on and on.  The flower gods truly sent us the most beautiful flowers for their wedding.  The bouquet complimented Kate’s gold dress beautifully.

Kate & Joe held their colorful Spring wedding at the Mid America Club, which is on the 80th floor of the AON tower.  Let me tell you, the view up there is incredible.  The room boasts expansive views of both Millennium Park and the lake.  For the centerpieces we used a variety of mercury glass candles to create different candlescapes on each table as they were holding a cocktail style reception.  The abundance of candlelight complimented the twinkling skyline perfectly.

Kate & Joe we loved working with you on your beautiful & fun wedding!!  Thanks for including us in your most special day.

Wedding Flower Friday

Posted on May 30th, by Life in Bloom in blog, Weddings & Events, Weddings and Events. No Comments

Time for another round of Wedding Flower Friday, this time with the funky & cool flower, Sandersonia.  How unique is this flower?!  I just think they are so cute.  To me, they look like little orange hot air balloons.  They make a statement grouped together in mass.  A few weeks ago we used them in our cocktail arrangements for Silvia & Ron’s Wedding at the Kenilworth Club.  They also look great tucked into bouquets or large gardeny arrangements.  Enjoy and Happy Friday!

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.


Mix & Mingle Wedding Trend Event

Posted on May 12th, by Life in Bloom in blog, Weddings & Events, Weddings and Events. No Comments

We were thrilled when Ashley of Midwestern Bride asked us to be a part of a tablescape design for the Mix & Mingle Wedding Trend Event which occurred this past Spring at the Rittergut Wine Bar!  Ashley was going for a rustic tablescape with pops of color in the florals.  She selected the tableware and vintage tins and let us run wild with ideas for the florals.  We stuck with a peachy-orange palette with lots of added greens for a loose and wild texture to tie in the organic look.  The ranunculus & poppies looked fabulous and really gave the table a vibrant and energetic look.  Thanks to Tuan Bui Photography for capturing the wonderful photos below!

 

Can’t wait to work together with Midwestern Bride again this Fall for Bailey & Michael’s Wedding at Rivers (Rittergut’s outdoor event space & patio)!!  It’s going to be quite the classy affair!
