Emmerson Creek Barn Wedding

Posted on August 26th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Chelsey and John were married at Emmerson Creek Barn this past summer.  The barn and tent were filled with lots of color, a bit of rustic charm and plenty of vintage touches.

The bridesmaid’s pastel bouquets popped off their coral lace dresses perfectly while Chelsea’s bouquet of coral charm peonies, peach garden roses, blush lisianthus, ivory dahlias, and lots of other textures complimented her bridal gown wonderfully.

Chelsea worked with a vintage rentals company to select her reception vessels which consisted of silver trays, a trio of milk glass vases, crystal vessels, and polished silver teapots.  The texture of the silver teapots was captivating and created that perfectly aged aesthetic on the tables!  We filled them all with a colorful palette of wildflower blooms which really popped in the tent.  Lidia & Rueben of Codrean Photography were there to capture every detail perfectly.

Colorful Summer Wedding at Rivers

Posted on June 28th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Allison and Chris were married at River’s Patio and danced the night away in an outdoor, colorful, and fun summer wedding at Rivers in downtown Chicago.  Their wedding didn’t lack anything in the way of color; Orange-Peach-Coral-Pink, it was beautiful and complimented the height of summer perfectly!

We had such a blast working with Allison and her Mom putting all of the decor elements together. For the ceremony Allison and her Mom purchased hanging aqua votives which we filled with pops of color accented with crisp gardenia greenery.  Bright coral dahlias, coral spray roses, and garden roses were used to create a vibrant and effective backdrop for their wedding ceremony.

The tablescapes continued with the fun and colorful theme.  Brightly colored blooms including coral dahlias, orange and yellow protea, coral and orange dahlias, delicate chamomile daisies and funky yellow billy balls adorned clean modern vases running the length of the rectangular table.  Aqua and white frosted votives accented the centerpieces and miniature potted succulents sat at each guest’s place setting.  No detail was left unnoticed!  Allison and Chris-thanks for choosing us to bring your fun & colorful vision to life.  We wish you both the best!

ArTango Summer Wedding in Chicago

Posted on March 7th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

This summer wedding was full of candlelight and color at the Ravenswood Restaurant of ArTango.  Laura & Dov were having a family style dinner with tapas so we adorned their tables with rustic brown lanterns, succulents, votives and bud vases full of vibrant colored flowers.  The floral palette was full of pinks, lavender, peaches, and blue and was the perfect colorful accent to the rustic look of the venue.  One of our favorite details of this wedding was the delicate flower girl crown composed of lavender, astilbe, and wax flower.  Our other favorite element was Laura’s stunning bridal bouquet.  It was lush & textural and the pastel colors complimented her gorgeous blush dress perfectly.  The dusty blue succulents, and hanging green amaranthus just added another dimension to the bouquet.  Congratulations Laura & Dov!  Thanks for having such a great vision and for allowing us to play a small part in your special day.

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 »

Columbus Park Refectory Wedding

Posted on September 22nd, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Missy & Sara were married this summer at the Columbus Park Refectory in Chicago.  They had a beautiful outdoor wedding on the terrace officiated by Anita Vaughan and then celebrated with an intimate cocktail reception inside the beautiful Columbus Park Refectory with their closest family & friends.

They chose a brilliant jewel tone color palette of pink, purple, and plum with accents of hunter green.  Missy’s bouquet was composed of the most lovely smelling fuchsia garden roses, plum calla lilies, show stopping pink Phalaenopsis orchids, and bright purple anemones to name a few.  While Sara’s bouquet was more traditional and primarily white, consisting of hydrangea, roses, and white Phalaenopsis orchids, we incorporated their color palette in the ribbon wrap around her bouquet!  The centerpieces were simple, colorful, and modern; composed of  hydrangea accented with garden roses and orchids.

Their first look was one of the sweetest we’ve seen (see their excitement below).  Congratulations Missy & Sara!  Thanks for including us in your special day!
