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.

Their floral palate consisted of the most beautiful pastel & romantic blooms that early summer has to offer.  We used lush & fluffy white & pink peonies, peach garden roses, lisianthus, as well as accents of white veronica & white tweedia.  Accented with gorgeous silk ribbon from Frou Frou Chic, along with the lush fluffy blooms, Mackalah’s bouquet was by far one of my absolute favorites.

As I watched the two stand under the hanging lights of the barn and exchange vows, I couldn’t help but feel overwhelmingly blessed.  I’ve known Mackalah growing up pretty much all my life, and it was such an honor to create a bouquet that she would walk down the aisle with to start her new … Read More »
