A Fabulous Filipino-Chinese Wedding Celebration in Lisle

Cathy and Derrick were married at St. Dominic Catholic Church in Bolingbrook and had their reception at the Wyndham Hotel in Lisle, Illinois. Their colors were burgundy, plum, deep red and white.

The personal flowers were awesome and coordinated perfectly with the dresses. For Cathy, we did a bouquet of Black Magic roses, burgundy and dark pink cymbidium and mini cymbidium orchids, fuchsia dendrobium orchids, burgundy callas and antique green/red hydrangea with a white satin wrapped handle with ivory organza overlay and bling buckle and pearl detail. The bridesmaids carried bouquets of roses, callas and orchids in a base of white hydrangea and their handles were wrapped in the dress fabric remnants. The bouts and corsages complimented the bouquets. We made 31 bouts and corsages since it was a Filipino-Chinese wedding that honored the Filipino sponsor tradition. We also made 2 floral wands for the flower girl and Jr. Bridesmaid.

For the ceremony, I made 3 altarpieces–two tall ones that mirrored each other that we later reused at the reception and one medium-height spray-shaped arrangement for the center of the altar that was donated to the church after the ceremony.

For the reception, I put petals and vases for the bouquets on the head tables and provided petals for all of the centerpieces which the bride had the venue assemble. One style was a short wide bowl with floating candles and petals and clear stones and a red pillar candle in the center. The other style was a duo or trio of cylinder vases with floating candles at top and some submerged petals inside.

I loved working with Cathy and Derrick to plan their wedding flowers! Everything turned out beautiful for their day!

Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Tung!
