Chicago River Wedding

Posted on January 29th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

It seems like just yesterday when it was sunny, and not a cloud in sight as we were setting up Bailey and Michael’s outdoor ceremony and reception over looking the Chicago River this past summer.  Bailey and Michael were such a sweet couple to work with and were very deserving of this beautiful day on which they tied the knot at Rivers Restaurant.

Bailey’s vision of a white, monochromatic, palette with accents of gold throughout was the perfect complement to this already stunning space and her vision was brought to life by our team with perfect execution. They say that all that glitters is not gold… however while that might be true, it should also be said that all that is gold, sure does glitter!

The ceremony’s aisle runner was lined with a trio of jumbo white hydrangea every couple of rows.  At the end of the aisle were two pedestals which both supported a large focal of gold shimmering foliage framed by an ivory fabric backdrop.

Behind this backdrop awaited the reception, where half of the tables were adorned with clear glass compotes overflowing with white and ivory flowers and gold foliage to give that … Read More »


Kemper Lakes Outdoor Wedding

Posted on January 6th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Tieg and Nick (high school sweethearts) were married this past September at Kemper Lakes golf club, and we had the privilege of doing the flowers for both their reception and ceremony.  The two lucked out with the most perfect weather, as they held their ceremony outside along the lake.

With the weeping willows acting as a backdrop to this beautiful setting, and the stunning floral palette of jewel tones, berries, and greenery, it all made for a picture-perfect ceremony.  A vintage wine barrel flanked by a collection of lanterns acted as the ceremony focal, while the aisle was lined with shepherds hooks, each which held a mason jar full of beautiful, multi-textural fall blooms.  Simply stunning.

The couple wanted to carry the rustic wine-inspired theme throughout their entire day so in addition to the ceremony barrels, we used wine bottles as a part of some of the centerpieces.  Tieg, being a project manager had a pretty clear and firm idea of what she wanted in terms of flowers so we worked together to create this beauty seen below.  She wanted bright jewel toned fall colors and absolutely loved amaryllis.  We combined various shades of roses, peach amaryllis, along with berries and other … 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!
