Modern Purple and White Orchid Wedding | Purple Modern Glam Wedding | Naperville Wedding Florist

purple white bouquet

Stacy and Nick’s chic and modern glam wedding at Marriott Chicago-Naperville was just impeccable! I love these beautiful images from the wedding captured by Jennifer Kaye Photography…and I LOVED making these beautiful flowers!

Stacy was adamant that only white and purple colors show in her wedding (no green!) so we designed bouquets and centerpieces that were chic and modern with very little green in sight! I actually think the only little bit of green showing was in the mostly all-white altarpieces–the stems of the tall callas–the only green in the entire wedding…So I think we did good!!!

We love when we get to do a modern wedding as its a nice change from the vintage and garden-inspired looks we typically do. Plus, I think this wedding is proof that we are great at modern looks too!

Orchids, roses, hydrangea, callas, carnations and lisianthus were among the flowers we used for this wedding. We used 4 different orchids varieties–dendrobium, vanda, phaleanopsis and cymbidiums. Wire, bling, gems, floating candles, submersible LED lights and stacked glass were key design elements we utilized for this wedding.

Thanks again to Stacy for being such a fun bride and to Jenny for capturing such lovely photos! I think it turned out great and I know the couple loved it too which matters most of all!

Big Announcement from KIO! | Baby Reveal Inspiration | Naperville Wedding Florist

baby reveal photos, creative

I have some BIG NEWS! After a long time spent trying to add to our family, we are finally expecting our second child, due August 22nd! We celebrated by taking this fun baby reveal photoshoot with the amazing Jennifer Kaye Photography. Cynthia at Blend Beauty did my makeup for the shoot and I made Aria a new dress in addition to sewing some fun pillows and a bunting banner. I love my husband’s silly face in this first picture–which pretty much exemplifies how sick I’ve been feeling so far! We are so overjoyed to finally be having another baby and Aria is so excited to finally be a big sister (new baby is due 12 days after her 3rd birthday!).

My team will be helping with our weddings in mid-to-late August and since I don’t take a typical maternity leave I’ll still be doing weddings up until I am due and then working again shortly there after (I’ll be making bouquets + centerpieces at least–but maybe I won’t be doing the actual setups for a couple weeks after). With my daughter I was literally in making bouquets the weekend after I had her–so who knows!!!

Still loving this wintery white bouquet from Taylor’s wedding at Arrowhead Golf Club this past December.
Peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, baby’s breath, and some silver brunia–it was just perfect for winter!
