A Romantic Wedding in White and Pink at the Knickerbocker
Grace and Matt had an amazingly beautiful wedding at The Millennium Knickerbocker in Chicago. Their colors were ivory, silver, gold and pink and flowers included roses, garden roses, peonies, spray roses, stock, ranunculus, hydrangea, and some silver sage, dusty miller and brunia. It was definitely one of our favorite weddings we have done to date! Their personal flowers included a soft and timeless bouquet for Grace made with peonies, garden roses, spray roses, and ranunculus and a matching boutonniere for Matt made with ranunculus and soft foliage. The bridesmaids carried all-pink bouquets made with peonies, ranunculus, garden roses and spray roses. The rest of the bouts and corsages were made with a mix of ivory and pink flowers to match. The ceremony decor was just STUNNING. The long aisle was covered with 2 side-by-side aisle runners to make one larger (6 ft wide) aisle runner. A monogram piece was painted and placed at the front of the aisle. The entire runner was encased with a foot of mixed rose petals and 6 pedestals with tall centerpieces when down the aisle, in addition to 30 pillar candles in hurricane vases surrounded with pink spray roses and 20 cylinder vases with water and floating candles in them. On the stage we made 2 beautiful altarpieces that were connected with natural branches that formed an arch. They sat on 2 columns that were draped with silver linens to match the other 6 columns draped with silver linens. It was the most complicated and beautiful wedding ceremony decor we've ever done and everyone loved it! The cocktail hour decor included 4 bubble bowls with peonies in them and 8 cylinder vases with floating candles on the escort card table. The highboy tables were decorated with petals and the card holder was our signature floral-rimmed card holder filled with beautiful pink and white flowers. The reception was held in the same room as the ceremony, so we had to do a quick turnover. We made 7 tall, full, fluffy centerpieces and 7 short, full, fluffy centerpieces. The short ones were surrounded by 3 silver mercury glass votives and the talls were surrounded by 3 hurricane vases with pillar candles (reused from the ceremony aisle). The ceremony arch was moved above the card holder and the head table was decorated with petals, more hurricane vases and vases for the bouquets. The last detail was the cake, which was adorned with roses, spray roses and peonies. Simple perfection. We LOVED working with Grace and Matt to plan their wedding decor to perfection. It was an amazing wedding and we loved being a part of it! I wish the Clackson's a lifetime of happiness and for Matt I will say "Go Wolves!" (since he plays for the Chicago Wolves) Congrats Clackson's!
