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!

Jessie and Chris had an overall vision for an organic feeling, yet elegant celebration with a color scheme of Deep Reds, Dusty Pinks, and Ivory.  Other than that, they let us run wild.  So we took their vision, tossed in a whole lot of gorgeous greenery and created one for the books!

For the personal flowers, I created wild & loosely structured bouquets with lots of olive, eucalyptus, and jasmine vine to give that organic feeling with some deep bold blooms … Read More »


Organic & Elegant Wedding at Valley Lo

Posted on August 1st, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Lily & David were married at Redfield Grove this past Spring and celebrated with a beautiful reception at the Valley Lo Club in Glenview.  I loved the organic & elegant wedding look they incorporated throughout the whole day.  Kina Wicks captured all the special moments and little details of their wedding day perfectly!  See more of her stunning photos below!

Lily’s bouquet was one of my absolute favorites!  We incorporated the most beautiful blush peonies, pale peach garden roses, sweet-smelling lilac, blush ranunculus along with clematis and lots of greenery to create a loose organic look.  Lily purchased some gorgeous ribbon from Frou Frou Chic which really added another element to this whimsical bouquet and completed the look fantastically.  It was like something out of a dream.

Lily & David’s first look was so precious.  David proposed to Lily in front of this yellow door and they also incorporated it into their first look and wedding ceremony; so cute!

For the centerpieces, we rented an eclectic mix of vintage brass vessels of varying sizes and shapes from Refind Joy.  The floral palette consisted of blush, peach, & coral colors … Read More »


Christmas Wedding Inspiration

Posted on December 19th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

A little Christmas Wedding Inspiration on the blog today to brighten up your week.  I can’t believe Christmas is less than a week away!  It sure has snuck up on me this year especially with the weather being pretty mild for the most part.  That’s all about to change this week.  I cringed when I saw the weather report for a high of 27 in Chicago on Friday.  Brrrrrrrrr.  It’s time to cozy up with some hot chocolate, listen to some Christmas tunes, do some holiday baking and build a gingerbread house!  At least that’s what I’ll be doing this weekend.  I love this inspiration board for Christmas, organic elegance with pop of red!  The gold calligraphy is so elegant and the mini single serve cakes for the bride and groom are adorable.
