Jennifer’s wedding was gorgeous in green, ivory and brown with loads of pods, succulents, branches, and orchids. Everything was beautiful and it was an amazing affair at Cafe La Cave in Des Plaines. Jennifer’s bouquet was a total stunner–rich in textures and just so fabulous! She loved it. I believe when she saw it she said “Holy crap, it’s awesome!” I love comments like that! After all, dropping off the bouquets is my favorite part of the wedding day!
Both the ceremony and reception were at Cafe La Cave in the Grand Ballroom and the cocktails were in the smaller ballroom so we had to flip the Grand Ballroom over after the ceremony (this happens at many weddings–and its always FAST and FRANTIC!) If you look at the photos, look for the images with the fabric backdrop with green lighting on it to tell how much the rest of the room changed from ceremony to reception. It is always amazing what the venue staff and us (the florist) can do in under an hour!
We did 3 different centerpiece styles for the wedding as well as altarpieces, cake flowers, headtable decor, neato highboy table terrariums, and of course the awesome personal flowers. It was totally a beautiful wedding and we were glad to be a part of it!
Congratulations to Jennifer and John!!
