Luxurious Garden Wedding featured on Wedding Chicks

If you are looking to have an elegant garden wedding then the Chicago Botanic Gardens is definitely the perfect venue!  In collaboration with Beso Events and Maria Harte Photography we created a dreamy garden party featuring oversized florals, luxe linens, the perfect ceremony spot, and one of the most incredible wedding cakes I've ever seen.  Everything was straight out of a magazine.

Romantic bouquets

Inspiration is everywhere.  I find it in nature, my kids, the city, and in my backyard.  Right now I've been really inspired by romantic bouquets with a lot of movement.  Loose greenery gives it a delicate feel that's whimsical and natural.  Take a look at these gorgeous bouquets that have been inspiring me lately.

Garden wedding

One of this years big trends is Garden-inspired weddings.  Whether you use gorgeous garden roses, tons of greenery, or wild looking arrangements you are sure to capture this look and feel.  I put together a centerpiece that would look great at any garden wedding filled with beautiful purple lisianthus, hyacinth, stock, wax flower and tons of lush greenery.  This long centerpiece looks amazing on this rustic, wood table.

Adding a few candlesticks in the arrangement gives it extra romance
