2016 Year in Review

Posted on December 31st, by Life in Bloom in blog, Uncategorized. 1 Comment

WOW!  What an incredible year.  As I look back at everything that happened in 2016, I feel an overwhelming amount of gratitude to so many people.  So let me first start by thanking all the people who allow me to live my dream every day with Life in Bloom.

It’s no secret, we have the best clients.  This year was full of the sweetest, most caring and considerate client’s we’ve had the pleasure of working with.  Not only that but they all had impeccable style as well.  Thanks for trusting & collaborating with us to bring your incredible visions to life.  Life in Bloom would be nothing without you and for that we are incredibly grateful.

We also have the best crew.  With a talented group of core designers surrounded by some incredible floral designers and a hardcore install team, I’m a firm believer that we’ve become the company to beat.  Are we the biggest? No. But our teamwork, communication, and hard-work is the best in the biz, and I know that to be a fact.  Our crew worked tirelessly this year and gave it 110% with no detail left unnoticed. And they did it all with a big smile.  There have … Read More »


Exmoor Country Club

Posted on October 25th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Kathleen and Mike’s big day was the quintessential, Italian-inspired occasion. The Exmoor Country Club wedding was overflowing with romance. The neutral tent, linens, and floral accented the touches of greenery and lush grounds at Exmoor perfectly.

The bouquets were a stunning combination of peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, lisianthus, seeded eucalyptus, and olive. The centerpieces were a mixture of lush low arrangements, topiaries, and candles. And who could forget the olive chair decor for our bride and groom? It’s one of our favorites!

Estera Events flawlessly planned and executed, while the talented Clary Pfeiffer captured the wedding, check out a few pictures of Kathleen and Mike’s day, below:

Armour House Lake Forest Academy Wedding

Posted on February 24th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

We hope you are ready for a whole lot of prettiness!  This wedding that we produced this past August at the Armour House in Lake Forest, IL had plenty prettiness to go around and was something straight out of a fairy tale!  This sweet couple had a vision of a blue floral palette, which can be tricky, but we were up for the challenge.  Starting with the Bridal Bouquet which consisted of dusty miller and brunnia berries along with a primarily white collection of garden roses, anemone and lisianthus, we tied that all together with a beautiful soft blue ribbon from Silk & Willow.  The Bridesmaids had similar flowers with the addition of Privet Berries and pops of pale blue Tweedia.

The main focal of the ceremony were the two large urn arrangements which overflowed with the most stunning blue hydrangea accented with dusty miller and blue Delphinium. These two arrangements sat on white pedestals which helped to frame the ceremony space perfectly in the outdoor garden which can otherwise feel like a big open space.

Moving into the Reception, guests couldn’t help but admire the jaw-dropping staircase display that we put together.  We completely covered … Read More »


2015 Life in Bloom Recap

Posted on January 3rd, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

2015 was quite a year for Life in Bloom!  Full of exciting changes and more beautiful events than we could count (okay, 43 if we are keeping track), we couldn’t be more excited to head into 2016.

In February, we moved into a beautiful new studio located in the west town neighborhood of Chicago (2632 W Grand Ave) and with a new oversized floral cooler, we are no longer limited to the confines of our private residence (Quite a sigh of relief)!

Over the year we worked with 38 different couples to create 38 unique weddings as well as a handful of corporate clients including transforming the Backstage Artist Lounge at Lollapalooza! That was definitely a highlight of the summer.  As we look back at 2015 we can’t help but be thankful for the support of all of our couples, friends and family who helped make 2015 far and away our most successful years yet!  Enjoy a brief recap and some of our favorite photos from this past year below and cheers to an even brighter 2016!

One of our first designs this year was for a bridal shoot with Tamara Gruner Photography which ended up being featured on Style Me Pretty TWICE.  We … Read More »


Bridgeport Art Center Wedding

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

This past June, we had the joy of designing and producing a beautiful wedding at the Bridgeport Art Center’s Skyline Loft.  This was our second wedding that we had done at Bridgeport and just like the last one, the bride and groom were close friends which made this one even more special.

There were so many beautiful elements and details that made up Sean and Morgan’s Preppy, Hamptons – Inspired Wedding and in a less-than-modest way, I think we nailed it! Some of the elements worth noting:

Elevator Garlands: If you have ever been to a wedding or an event at the Bridgeport Art Center, you know how exciting entering the space can be. An oversized freight elevator equipped with a full bar and lounge grouping transported guests to the skyline loft at the top floor.  We draped garlands along the elevator, creating a super cozy and inviting atmosphere.

Ceremony Trellis Backdrop: Sean and Morgan exchanged vows in front of this all white trellis backdrop covered in smilax and accented with pops of plush peonies and ivory spray roses.  At the start of the aisle stood two boxwood topiaries welcoming guests into this garden-inspired affair.

The Hydrangea Garland: Over 130 stems were used to create this lush hydrangea garland that ran the … Read More »
