Featured on Wedding Sparrow Blog | Soft Vintage Garden-Style Bouquet | Cuneo Mansion Wedding Florist

I was honored when Kristin La Voie asked me to design a bouquet for a beautiful styled bridal shoot at Cuneo Mansion in Libertyville. We made something soft and ethereal with a vintage garden feel. The bride wore two different dresses, and the bouquet complimented both ensembles beautifully! Check out the full feature on Wedding Sparrow today!

Here is the first look below…

Featured Bouquet | Peach and Mint Succulent Bouquet | Naperville Wedding Florist

Sydney’s bouquet was ABSOLUTE PERFECTION! She loved it, I loved it, EVERYONE loved it. It was just awesome. Perfect for her peach + mint green wedding at Starved Rock and so expertly captured by Braun Photography.

This bouquet featured peach Juliet garden roses, minty green succulents, silver sage, seeded eucalyptus, hypericum berries, spray roses, and lisianthus with handle wrapped in burlap ribbon with an awesome vintage brooch from my collection. See more from this wedding here.

Peach and Mint Green Wedding Flowers | Garden Rose Succulent Bouquet | Starved Rock Wedding Florist

peach mint bouquet

We love when brides love our work so much that they want us to do their personal flowers (bouquets, bouts, corsages) even if their actual wedding is out of our normal delivery range. Sydney and Ben got married at beautiful Starved Rock (unfortunately we do not deliver that far away!) but we were able to make them stunning personal flowers that they arranged for a family member to pick up and drive down the morning of the wedding. Obviously from the photos, you can see the flowers held up just fine and we were even able to provide them with some buckets of loose flowers that some of their friends + family arranged in vases on site.

For Sydney’s bouquet, she wanted peach + mint with a little bit of white and lots of garden roses and succulents. The bridesmaids carried peach roses with baby’s breath collars (sort of a Beidermeier style) and the boutonnieres were little bundles of assorted flowers, berries and foliage with jute wraps and exposed stems. Everything fit perfectly into their rustic theme at their gorgeous venue! Also, Braun Photography took such amazing photos I am in heaven looking at all of them!

Sydney was such a beautiful bride! She looks perfect in all of these photos! Her bridesmaids (our very own Kio gal Taylor included in the mix) were lovely in their mint dresses! What a fabulous bunch!!!

Green + Brown Rustic Modern Wedding | Green, Brown and White Flowers | Alsip Wedding Florist

We have some lovely images from Timothy Whaley & Associates of an event we did at the Doubletree by Hilton Alsip/Chicago. We love working at this hotel for any and all events but this one was particularly fun! The color palette was lime green, teal, brown and white and the vibe was rustic/modern/glam. I think we nailed the look!

green wedding flowers

So many gorgeous textures for this one! There were tulips, hydrangea, dianthus, orchids, silver dollar eucalyptus, roses, stock, fern curls, amaranthus, bells of Ireland, manzanita branches, curly willow branches, bear grass, ti leaf, mercury glass, bling, touches of gold and just so many fabulous things!!!

On a personal note, my husband and I had a night away (and toddler-free!) at the Doubletree and it was so relaxing, romantic and fun! I look forward to going again for another “staycation” soon! Hopefully I’ll be doing more weddings and events there soon…and I’m looking forward to seeing more photos from a photoshoot we did there a few weeks ago (it was a faux ceremony photoshoot for new marketing materials and it was super awesome!)
