Chicago History Museum Wedding

Posted on March 21st, by Life in Bloom in blog, Event Recaps. 1 Comment

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!

Chicago History Museum Wedding

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 »

Knickerbocker Hotel Chicago Wedding

Throwback Thursday to our first wedding of the 2014 wedding season!  Kala & Michael hosted a classic Chicago Wedding.  They were married at Old St. Pat’s with their reception at the gorgeous Millenium Knickerbocker Hotel in Chicago.  Since the venue is so so so SO gorgeous we didn’t need much to beautify the space.  Kala & Michael were married on Valentines Day weekend and the theme of love was carried throughout their day and in their decor.  For Kala’s bouquet we used the most beautiful red roses and accented it with several small gems that gave it an extra sparkle.  Half of the tables were adorned with beautiful clear vase centerpieces filled with a classic valentine’s day palate of red roses, white roses, and dusty miller.  The remaining tables were decorated with manzanita branches with hanging crystal strands that sparkled from across the room, helping render the perfect winter wedding.

A huge thanks to Timothy Whaley Photographic Artists for all of the images below.  Enjoy!!


Congrats again you two and thanks for including us in your special day!!

I feel so lucky to work with some of the most amazing couples!  Corrie & Dan were married at Our Lady of Perpetual Help and had their reception at the Valley Lo Club in Glenview this past June.  Their wedding was a dusty shale, white, and peach dream!  Perfectly pastel! We used the most gorgeous garden roses in shades of peach and blush combined with fluffy white peonies, Cafe Au Lait Dahlias and a hint of dusty miller for some seriously romantic flowers.

Congratulations Corrie & Dan and thanks to Kina Wicks Photography for the stunning photos below!
