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!

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!)

Romantic Pink Bouquets | Pink Wedding Flowers | Naperville Wedding Florist

romantic pink bouquet

We loved making beautiful bouquets and boutonnieres for Stephanie and Frank’s wedding at the Seville in Streamwood.  We are so happy that we have beautiful photos from my friend Victoria at Sprung Photo to share!

Stephanie’s bouquet was just gorgeous! We combined light pink, ivory and coral pink blooms including Cafe a Lait dahlias, garden roses, and lisianthus together and wrapped the handle in an heirloom sleeve from a family wedding dress. It was such a beautiful look!

We also did some very simple and chic ceremony decor–white hydrangea hung from pink ribbons for the ceremony chairs. The bouts and corsages we made with roses, garden roses and spray roses and the bridesmaids bouquets were made with ivory, cream and champagne flowers including roses, garden roses, dahlias, stock and lisianthus.

Romantic Peach, Green + Ivory Wedding | Fulton’s on the River/River Roast Wedding | Chicago Wedding Florist

peony bouquet

Nikki and Jakub’s wedding at Fulton’s on the River (now called River Roast) was just amazing! Luckily, Britta Marie Photography expertly captured so many of the beautiful details of the day so I can share them with you!

I loved the subtle ivory, peach, blush and green color palette. The centerpieces were rich in texture but subtle in color which only added to the romantic vibe. Interesting combinations of silver lanterns and flowers within champagne frames, and lush textural blooms with natural manzanita branches with hanging votives in curvy glass vases were among the centerpiece styles.

I totally loved the slate blueish gray bridesmaids dresses. The bouquets really POPPED off of them while Nikki’s fluffy peony and garden rose bouquet looked soft and romantic against her gorgeous gown.

We also did our signature Chicago Themed Table Numbers on the guest tables and had a large manzanita tree on the escort card table greeting guests as they walked into the reception space.

One of the cuter details of the day was the custom hand-drawn map I designed and the tiny dandelion vase I made the morning of the wedding as a last minute request of the groom. Jakub was giving Nikki a lovely necklace with a dandelion seed in resin pendant and wanted an accompanying dandelion arrangement for it.

Thanks again to Britta Marie Photography for these lovely images and to our wonderful clients Nikki and Jakub for letting us be a part of their special day!
