Lauren and AJ were married at Wheatland Salem United Methodist Church in Naperville and had their reception at Wyndham Hotel in Lisle, Illinois. Their colors were royal blue, dark purple and lime green and flowers included hydrangea, delphinium, Bells of Ireland, Button poms, lisianthus, cymbidium orchids, dendrobium orchids, vanda orchids, hypericum berries an stock.
For the personal flowers, Lauren carried a bouquet of vanda orchids, blue Bombay dendrobium orchids, purple stock, green cymbidium orchids, blue hydrangea, and lisianthus. The bridesmaids bouquets had blue hydrangea, button poms, purple stock, green hypericum berries, green mini cymbidium orchids and blue Bom dendros. The bouts and corsages were all made of orchids in purple, blue and green shades. The flower girl wand was awesome. I really am glad we decided to add the blue-dyed Bombay dendrobium orchids to the mix–that was a game time decision for us!
For the ceremony, we hung blue hydrangea from lime green ribbon from the chairs going down in the aisle. I also painted a monogrammed aisle runner for the aisle.
For the reception, we did 2 showy tall arrangements for the gift and escort card table that combined orchids, Bells of Ireland, Hydrangea, stock and curly willow branches. We did even taller versions of them with delphinium added to the mix for half of the centerpieces and the other half were submerged blue hydrangea with floating candles on top. The cake was decorated with orchids and orchid heads were also scattered on the head table, escort card table, cake table and gift table. I also did cute signs on 10 of my vases for the cookie buffet which looked really cute! It was really hard not to eat any of the cookies while setting up!
I enjoyed working with Lauren and she was such a gorgeous bride! I am so glad to have been a part of her wedding and wish her an AJ a lifetime of happiness!
Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Reineking!
