Garfield Park Conservatory Wedding

Posted on December 11th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Jessie & Chris were married at the Garfield Park Conservatory this past Fall in October.  The Garfield Park Conservatory, which sits on the outskirts of the city on the west side, is a historic gem!  The Architecture of the building itself is stunning, and when you combine that with its super lush and exotic array of plants, it is hard to beat as far as wedding venues go.

Of all of the weddings that we produced this past year, this was quite possibly the one that I was looking forward to the most.  My husband told me afterwards that if we had been married in the fall, this is what he would have wanted our wedding to look like:  The ultimate compliment!

Danada House Wedding

Rachel & Abe were married this past spring at the Danada House in Wheaton, IL.  The Danada house is a beautiful venue surrounded by open fields filled with galloping horses — to put it simply, the perfect outdoor setting for a ceremony.

The couple wanted a rustic feel without feeling too grungy.  With a soft color palate of lavender, mint, and ivory, combined with a mix of wooden vases and mercury compotes, I’d say we hit it on the head with this one.  This multi-textured bouquet consisting of sweet pea, lavender, lisianthus, peonies, garden roses, dusty miller, and brunnia berries was one of our favorites to create and the outcome was nothing short of stunning.
