Lavender and Navy Rustic Wedding | Danada House Wedding | Wheaton Wedding Florist

Danada House is one of our favorite venues and we just loved this wedding we did there for Rachel and Sam with Gina Cristine Photography. Everything was just lovely!

Who knew how nicely lavender pairs with navy?! It looked fabulous! The lavender and ivory bouquets the bridesmaids held popped off of their navy dresses. The centerpieces were simple yet chic with seeded eucalyptus, ivory hydrangea and lavender roses and spray roses. Half were in rustic crates, half were in clear square vases. My favorite piece was the sweetheart table arrangement! It was so FABULOUS!

Garden-Inspired Soft Spring Wedding | Riverside Receptions Weddings | Geneva Wedding Florist

Working with Jess and Justin on the flowers for their Riverside Receptions wedding was a total joy. Jess trusted us and knew we would do a great job, which only makes us feel more passionate about what we do! They also were wise enough to hire one of our talented photographer friends– Grace from True Grace Photography. Because of that savvy decision I have these beautiful flower photos to share with you!

We loved this soft pastel color palette that had some pops of purple in the mix and TONS of rich textures in the flowers and foliage. Succulents, anemones, scabiosa, garden roses and viburnum were some of the key featured elements throughout the bouquets, bouts and centerpieces.

Sidenote: I love the shot of the bouquets in the air above– I would caption it “Yay, we have awesome bouquets and we love love!”
Below are some more images of some of our favorite details. This arch, for one, was A-MAZ-ING. This is always the arch I like using at the venue (the venue has two of their own arches clients can use). I love the shape of this one and it worked PERFECTLY with the way I wanted to hang the chandelier and drape the fabric. This arch has never looked so good!

We love working at Riverside Receptions as it is always easy to work there (nice staff + ease of use!) AND the rooms are always bathed in light–so photos are easy to take there and always look nice. Jess and Justin had particularly awesome weather for their nuptials so they were able to take a lot of nice outdoor shots with Grace and our flowers as well.

We loved this one. It was one of our first of the season this year and it just came out better than we ever could have imagined. Wishing the best for Jess and Justin and hoping we get to work with Grace more in 2016 and beyond!

Purple and White Napa Glam Wedding | Hotel Arista Wedding | Naperville Wedding Florist

Nicki and Matt’s wedding was one for the books (and magic on the eyes!) We are so happy that they hired Miller + Miller to capture it so we can relive it through the beautiful images.

Hotel Arista looked amazing–there was no detail missed. The flowers, linens, draping, lighting, chairs…just total perfection.

Let’s talk about the ceremony… Our four-post arch was draped with fabric and we carefully hung Nicki’s glam chandelier. This was a fun challenge as I was 9 months pregnant when we did this wedding so my team really helped out!

Cocktail area did not disappoint… The foyer’s credenza was accented with three tall orchid and branch centerpieces and a custom chalkboard sign (that I made!) with beautiful draping behind. Small accent arrangements sat atop each highboy and cabaret table.

The reception was magical… They orientated the ballroom vertically instead of horizontally (which is the norm) and I loved this orientation for their reception. There was movement and it better showcased their king’s table, the band and the other special sections within the ballroom (including a vodka ice luge).

Metallic touches of silver, gold and champagne complimented the purple, lavender, white and cream flowers. A minimum of nine candles adorned every guest table. Everything flowed beautifully and there was a combination of short and tall centerpieces bringing interest and visual height to the space.

The lighting was a combination of colorful uplights and candles galore–and it worked perfectly. Everything looked just polished and glamorous without being stuffy and over-the-top.

We are so glad Nicki and Matt chose us to do their wedding. We loved being a part of it and it is one of our favorite Arista weddings to date. It is always a bonus when they also choose one of our favorite photographers as well!

Napa Glam Inspired Bouquet | Hotel Arista Wedding | Naperville Wedding Florist

napa inspired bridal bouquet

Nicki had one of the most beautiful bouquets we’ve ever made for her Hotel Arista wedding, and Miller + Miller Photography captured it perfectly! This Napa-inspired bouquet was the perfect combination of rich textures and fluffy romantic blooms. I call this bouquet “Napa Glam” and worked perfectly with Nicki’s stunning lavender gown.

Pieris, Berzelia, dahlias, freesia, garden roses, spray roses, hydrangea, and a new favorite of mine: “Blueberry roses” were used in this bouquet. It was a total stunner!
