Danada House Wedding

Posted on September 8th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Catie & Jon’s wine-country inspired wedding was a perfect fit at the Danada House. The rustic elegance of the venue combined with wine barrels, pastel florals, and Catie’s stunning blush lace dress, made this wedding one to remember.

The ceremony was set with two large wine barrels each holding a large organic arrangement filled with eucalyptus, bay leaves, snapdragon, roses, astilbe, Cafe Au Lait dahlias, pink snowberry, queen anne’s lace, and more. The ladies’ navy dresses made the pastel florals pop beautifully, as did the linens on the reception tables.

The dusty blue succulents in every bouquet tied all of the colors together perfectly. Thank goodness we had our friends Artistrie Co. capturing the day and La Belle Fleur Events making sure it ran smoothly.

We hope this sweet couple enjoys their memories of this day forever. Check out a few shots their big day below!  Their wedding was also featured in the Summer/Fall Issue of The Knot on newsstands now!

Martha Stewart Wedding Party

Posted on July 14th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

A few weeks ago we gave you a behind-the-scenes tour of our new studio and today we’ll show you what we were working on and how perfectly it all came together at the Ritz Carlton Chicago for the 2015 Martha Stewart Bridal Show.  The annual Martha Stewart Bridal Show pulls together some of the best wedding vendors that Chicago has to offer, and we were thrilled to be a small part of it, by providing the floral for Ashley of La Belle Fleur Events Booth. We collaborated with Ashley of La Belle Fleur Events to create a romantic, soft & fluffy blooms to fill her tablescape that Martha Stewart herself would certainly approve of!

Ashley of La Belle Fleur Events designed and dressed the table, which was covered in a deep navy linen, with white ceramic vases overflowing with pink astilbe, ranunculi, stock, garden roses, and rice flower. She added some mini topiaries to the table to provide that fresh, summer-in the Hamptons ambience.  Lastly, the table was set with beautiful blue and white china from Halls, and each place setting held a custom-designed menu from Sarah Drake Design.  The space was framed with a custom white trellis wall that acted as a soft, inviting backdrop.

Thanks to Ashley of La Belle Fleur Events for inviting … Read More »


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 »


Monet Water Lily Wedding Inspiration

Posted on January 27th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

For those of you who are familiar with the work of Claude Monet, upon recalling some of his famous paintings, images of a natural setting with reflective bodies of water baring lily pads likely come to mind.

Inspired by Claude’s artistic style, trademarked by a seemingly blurry combination of oil pastels, and a love for nature, Ashley La Fleur of La Belle Fleur Events spearheaded a collaborative effort in creating our own work of art that mimicked Claude’s love for nature and all of its beauty.

In our own interpretation, we created a romantic scene where we brought to life, a soft, pastel color palette reminiscent of Monet’s work.  From the flatware to the overhanging floral focal and everything in between, the space was filled with a feeling of translucent airiness.

One of our favorite elements from the shoot was the suspended “chandelier” which we constructed out of varying shades of blue delphinium and lime-green amaranthus, all hanging from a manzanita branch to create a perfectly whimsical & dreamy enclosure.

We also created some beautiful bouquets that captured both the color palette as well as the mood of a Parisian pond in the summer time.  With a collection of Cafe Au Lait Dahlias, Ginger, Amaranthus, Astilbe, … Read More »
