Contemporary AIC Wedding

The lines of the AIC defined the beauty of this couple's love story, simple and pure. No fuss or muss just the two of them bonded for life. Keeping with the sophistication of the venue, we designed large white callas in a linear format. Accents of tropical monstera leaves and manzanita branches brought a modern organic essence to the designs. The bride chose to carry an all white mini calla bouquet, while her bridesmaids carried mix florals. The bouquets were simply repurposed down the head table for decor.

Bold Beauties at Adler Planetarium-Chicago

 

We love this dramatic, modern wedding at Adler Planetarium, a venue that so naturally and graciously lends itself to this aesthetic with its incredible floor to ceiling windows, unbeatable view of the skyline and clean lines. Texture and structure are abundant in the bride’s bouquet and it pairs flawlessly with her tiered gown with its asymmetrical details and feminine feel.  The Phalaenopsis Orchids send this bouquet over the top by adding such a dynamic and eye-catching level of intrigue; it is truly beautiful and so fitting.  The complexly structured bloom mimics not only the bridal gown but the architectural detail of the planetarium, so many complimentary layers from the venue, to the gown, to the florals.  The monochromatic bouquets in all different shades of pink really pop against the charcoal gray bridesmaids’ dresses and linens at the reception, giving the space a modern and crisp look while adding drama with the bold color choices.  Each hue brings depth to the arrangements and those layers are dramatically emphasized by the soft candlelight that warms the space.

European Style Shoot

Rich hues of an autumn sunset defined the essence of this dreamy style shoot. From splashes of fiery pepper reds in the sky to the final glimpse of the golden sun setting in the distance, our imaginations began to overflow with beaming visions. We selected vibrant cherry blooms and crisp tangerine beauties, in various textures, forming a radiant color scheme. The apricot undertones brought softness to the bold crimson beauties creating a harmonious balance throughout the floral designs. Dashes of sweet blackberries and red/black anemones added a hint of edginess to the overall designs. The tablescape was set under the sway of the trees and illuminated by ivory tapers for a romantic ambiance. Luscious velveteen garden roses embellished each place setting as the guests said their ‘Cheers’ to the bride and groom.

Rustic Romance

Rustic romance; it sounds like an oxymoron but when it’s done right, it works!  Very much like love, this wedding includes the raw, real and not always ‘conventionally’ beautiful.  As with love, there is also the element of intrinsic, unimaginable and undeniable beauty.  This wedding embodies much of what love is all about – a harmonious balance of many things.  The bride’s gown and bouquet have a lovely organic feel to them, with natural movement, texture, and variation. The tablescapes for the reception make use of the perfect florals paired with just the right vessels and accents; it’s like stumbling upon a romantic secret garden in the depths of the woods.  While each centerpiece has multiple components that are very artfully and purposefully arranged, there is a very natural, no-fuss aesthetic that feels beautifully earthy and whimsical. The succulents, driftwood and wrought iron give that natural touch while the soft peach and ivory pallet with navy and deep purple accents amp up the romance.  Using a variety of different collections on each table also contributes to that secret garden feel, it is all completely cohesive but each table is its own unique setting. There are many intricacies to be discovered, much like in love, and the exploration and discovery of those intricacies is magical.

The Bride Wore Blush

You really can’t go wrong with the classic color combination of navy and blush, but with this wedding it’s not just done right, it is done to perfection.  The romantic chic aesthetic is uniquely infused with a gardenesque touch that makes the heart flutter.  The variety of florals used in the bouquets gives them so much texture and personality while the soft color palate and rounded design style maintain that romantic chic feel.  Luxurious blooms like garden roses and dahlias are mixed with surprises like thistle and succulents to create distinctive and stunning bouquets. 

The blushing bride in her gorgeous princess gown is a vision, all eyes on her as she makes her way down the aisle lined with floating candles and both elevated and low lush arrangements.  The elevated arrangements with crystals add just the right touch of glamour to the romantic, candle-lit space.  The final fabulous touch is the custom backdrop for the couple to recite their vows in front of, with draping, sheer white fabric and delicately strung orchids.  The couple themselves draped in chic romance, they were an image of perfection as they declared their love for one another.  A picture of perfection.

Chic, Chic, Chic at The Newberry Library


Classic elegance filled every corner of the Newberry Library for this fabulous and timeless wedding in black, white and gold.  The atmosphere created by a library venue is inherently magical; there is a sense of tradition, romance and ceaseless dreams that infuses the air.  We love the playful and whimsy use of the old card catalog as a vessel to hold florals on the escort table, those tiny drawers that have held within them such a wealth of information, creativity and imagination.  All the endless possibilities that lie ahead of the newly married couple are emulated by the limitless abundance of options to explore at the library.  What a romantic thought that is.

These all white florals are perfect; delicate blooms of ranunculus, sweet peas, orchids and hydrangea contribute to the dreamy atmosphere and timeless ambiance.  Simple black linens and gold chargers round out the look with elegance and just the right amount of formality to remind guests they are a part of a truly special evening.  Guests left the library with dreams of romance, adventure and everlasting memories.

Kumquats and Peonies…What else could you ask for on your wedding day?

 

 

This wedding is a shining example of everything we love about vintage romance.  Germania Place is a perfect venue for this type of aesthetic and it worked flawlessly for this bride and groom.  Everything from the tall arched windows; the grey, green and gold wainscoting; the vintage crystal chandeliers, was completely and amazingly in sync.  The use of greenery as a base for the floral arrangements in this space was brilliant. Between the height of the ceilings and the lightness of the room, it would have been easy for a lighter arrangement to be overwhelmed by the grandness of the room and lost.  The eucalyptus base for these arrangements gave the space a very natural, romantic garden feel and really made the arrangements pop against their surroundings.  There was a lot of play with texture here with the dahlias, astilbe, queen anne’s lace, berries and of course – kumquats!  What could be more fun?  These sweet little orange fruits brought an element of playfulness and added to that natural aesthetic that made this reception so beautiful.  The color palette and variety of florals was elegant but fun - with rich, luxurious burgundy peonies, ivory spray roses, dusty champagne roses and peachy garden roses accented with whimsy lace, berries and ferns to add texture and movement – it all came together in a truly stunning way.  All in all, this wedding is a perfect reminder of the timelessness of vintage romance.
