Rosa and Greg were married at St. Pascal Church in Chicago and had their reception at The Cotillion in Palatine. Their colors were Tiffany blue and chocolate brown with accents of white, light pink, magenta and silver. Flowers included roses, Stephanotis, peonies, hydrangea, gladioli and orchids.
For the personal flowers, Rosa carried a mostly white bouquet of roses, hydrangea, Stephanotis and Cymbidium orchids with magenta throats. The Bridemaids carried pink bouquets of peonies and roses with handles wrapped in chocolate brown to compliment their aqua dresses. The bouts and corsages were made with roses and some had Stephanotis accents.
For the ceremony, we did the traditional Blessed Virgin Mary offering and parent sign of peace flowers along with hydrangea for the pews and 2 sleek altarpieces. The hydrangea and altarpieces were reused at the reception as decor.
Lisa (my assistant that day) and I actually got to stay for the ceremony and it was beautiful. It is fun to get to see the loving exchanges between my couples!
For the reception, we did 2 centerpiece styles. One was a trio of cylinders filled with just water and a floating candle and surrounded by petals and bling. The other was a square vase of hydrangea with a submersible LED light and aqua stones in the bottom. The head table was decorated with petals, bling and vases for the bouquets and the cake table also got petals and bling. The sweets table got one of the altarpieces and the other was put on the entry table. I also designed a seating chart for the entry table that turned out really great! Bubble bowls with teal stones and floating candles adorned the highboy table, entry table and sweet table. The hydrangea from the ceremony was put into vase on the bar, sweet table and entry table as well.
I enjoyed working with Rosa to plan her wedding! I wish here and Greg a lifetime of love and happiness!
Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Burnette!
