A Black, White and Blue Celebration at The Seville

Danielle and Michael were married at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Schaumburg and then celebrated their reception at The Seville in Streamwood afterward. Their colors were black, white and blue and flowers included hydrangea, roses, callas and scabiosa.

For the personal flowers, Danielle carried a bouquet of mini callas, Stephanotis with blue pearls and crystals inside, roses, sweetheart roses, blue hydrangea and pink sweet pea accents. The Bridesmaids carried bouquets of white hydrangea, white roses, blue delphinium and Scabiosa with black handles. Michael wore an calla bout and the rest of the guys wore white roses.

For the ceremony, I created two altarpieces with blue hydrangea and scabiosa, white hydrangea, roses, callas and black curly willow branches. I also created 3 single white rose bouquets to serve as memorials for relatives who have passed away.

For the reception, I created 20 blue hydrangea centerpieces with bear grass accents in black square vases. They sat on the guest tables and head table. The ones on the guest tables were put on top of mirrors that sat on these taller, modern-looking bases that the venue provided. The head table had vases for the bouquets, petals, votives, the altarpieces, 4 centerpieces and candlesticks provided by the venue.

Everything was so beautiful–especially the bride! I really loved working with Danielle and Michael and hope they had the best day of their lives. Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Speciale!
