Renzhuo and Shuonan were married on a perfect Sunday this past July. A little fog made it a dreamy afternoon as the two were wed on the rooftop of The Public Hotel.
This Gold Coast venue is complete with an unbeatable view of the Chicago skyline, you truly feel an arms length away. The all white linens and furniture of The Public Hotel set the stage for bright peonies, greenery, and gold accents.
This sweet couple wanted their intimate gathering to look organic, romantic, and include shades of peach, red, and white. The bride wore a delicate flower crown in the same palette as her peony filled bouquet. For the ceremony, we used a birch branch arch, draped with ivory chiffon and drenched in eucalyptus, peonies, garden roses, and jasmine vine.
For the reception, a long white table stretching the length of the rooftop was set with gold candle holders at varying heights surrounded by olive. This garland effect was complimented with boutique vases filled with peonies, garden roses and olive branch.
We wish these two the happiest of marriages! Check out some of their stunning moments captured by Nicodem Creative.

Today on the blog is a rare flower favorite. Rare because it is only available for a smidgen of time in the Spring. And today’s feature flowers is…Bleeding hearts!! You will find them blooming in landscapes and wooded areas in the spring-time. As a child I absolutely LOVED this plant. It was one of my favorite flowers with it’s delicate heart shaped petals. Since it’s availability is very spotty, when I saw them at the flower market I knew I had to scoop some up and create an impromptu bouquet with them. I hope you enjoy it & Happy Friday!
In February we had the honor of participating in Bridal Fete Chicago’s bouquet bar. Their famed bouquet bar displayed bouquets from a dozen or so of some talented florists in Chicago. The event was held at Roosevelt University in the Loop, which is SUCH a gorgeous place for a special event! For our bouquet we opted for a vibrant palette of luscious pink peonies, always amazing Cafe Au Lait Dahlias, pale pink Ranunculus, a touch of checkered Fritillaria and acacia foliage. We finished off the look with delicate white & pink bi-color Clematis. I didn’t order them specifically for this bouquet but my salesperson, Laura, pulled them out for me since she knows how much I love Clematis and I just couldn’t resist them! I think they added the perfect finishing touch to the bouquet.
Enjoy the lovely images below from Carasco Photo of the event and the bouquet we made.
