Top 5 bouquets of 2017

I seriously can not believe how quickly this year went!  I remember being so excited for all the wonderful weddings I had planned for 2017 and then I blinked and it's December. 

What a great year filled with gorgeous weddings, wonderful clients, amazing support, fantastic venues, and of course tons of flowers.  I'm so grateful for an amazing year and I can't wait for 2019!!  Here we go!  

Since it's the end of the year I thought I'd share with you my top 5 bouquets created this year.  So here they are in no particular order.  I can't pick a favorite, can you?

Jennifer + Gabe

How incredible is it to have twenty of your closest friends and family join you for an intimate ceremony and reception at the beautiful Waldorf Astoria Chicago for a dreamy winter wedding.  And to top it off the bride was totally laid back and ready to enjoy her day.  She wanted everything to be clean, simple, elegant, and timeless with white blooms and rich greenery.  We went with two beautiful white arrangements and a candle lined aisle for the ceremony and a lush cascading garland of greenery accented with a few white blooms for the long reception table.  Thank you so much Jennifer and Gabe for including us on your wedding day!

White and gold Chicago wedding

One of the most beautiful venues for a Chicago wedding is definitely the Adler Planetarium.  The outside patio has a breath-taking view of the skyline that doesn't disappoint.  It's the perfect backdrop.  This couple had gorgeous weather for their outdoor ceremony.  The bride wanted me to frame the bride and groom with branches which is always tricky in summer when blooming branches are done for the season.  But, I'd say we did a pretty good job creating blooming branches with birch and orchids.

Inside the reception space bold gold accents and black and white striped runners created a gorgeous modern, elegant feel.  The bride provided amazing tall gold hurricane vases which was a great compliment to the tall arrangements of hydrangea and branches.

The bridal party carried babys breath bouquets while the bride opted for a fluffy bouquet of ivory and white flowers.  The groomsman and flower girls complimented the bridal party with babys breath as well.
