Top Chicago Wedding Venues

Posted on January 18th, by Life in Bloom in blog, Event Design Trends. No Comments

Today we are chatting about some of the most spectacular wedding venues/event spaces that Chicago has to offer.  There are wide variety of venues to choose from in this wonderful city and we wanted to highlight some of our favorites.

1. Cafe Brauer

I may be a little biased, since my husband and I got married here, and thus it will always hold a special place in my heart.  But going beyond my bias, with the gorgeous prairie style architecture and the spectacular views of Lincoln Park and the city skyline as seen from the loggias, what’s not to love?  It’s a beautiful oasis for a Chicago wedding set in the middle of Lincoln Park just adjacent to the Lincoln Park Zoo.  Perfect for those couples wanting a downtown Chicago wedding with the feel of the outdoors & nature as well.  From an architectural standpoint, the sea-foam green steel work seen out front as well as within the ceiling of the ballroom is absolutely beautiful.  The skylight allows for the sunshine to just pour into the main ballroom. This space can accommodate roughly 250 people for a seated dinner.  Photos by Kina Wicks Photography.

Thursday Therapy at The Ivy Room

Posted on June 21st, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

We were so graciously invited to do floral and design at Thursday Therapy this month held at the Ivy Room. For those of you who don’t know, this is an event for wedding pros to meet, mingle and share their business ideas and strategies. The hosts Joan Cinquegrani and Bethany Fritz of Five Grain Events and Maypole Studios put on a great event once a month and we were so excited to add our custom designs to the tables of the Ivy Room.

We went a little out of the box with a purple and peach palette that matched the slate grey linens flawlessly. Purple succulents, lilac, and ranunculus set in silver, antique pedestal vases came to life in the space. We cannot wait to work at the Ivy Room again!

As always we loved chatting with our friend Elysia from Elysia Root Cakes and Natalie from the Ivy Room over a pomegranate spritzer. See some gorgeous shots of the night by Jason Brown with J. Brown Photo.
