Consuelo and Benjamin were married at Old St. Pat’s in Chicago and celebrated their reception at Allegra Banquets in Schiller Park. Their colors were champagne, orange and chocolate brown and flowers included callas, hydrangea, roses, spray roses, orchids and button poms.
For the personal flowers, Consuelo carried a bouquet of mostly white and champagne blooms with orange accents. It had hydrangea, ivory roses, cream spray roses, champagne sweetheart roses, ivory mini callas, mango callas, orange cymbidium orchids, Camel roses and Quicksand Roses. It was so beautiful! The maid of honor bouquet had orange roses and spray roses, brown button poms, mango callas, and champagne roses. The bouts and corsages were made of a variety of flowers including callas for the groom, best man and fathers, spray roses and orchids for the mothers and female readers and gift bearers, roses for the ushers and button poms for the ring bearer.
For the ceremony, we only had to provide Parent Sign of Peace flowers and a Blessed Virgin Mary Offering.
For the reception, we did a three different centerpiece styles for the 14 centerpieces including 4 manzanita tree arrangements with orchids, hanging votives and floral bases; 5 cylinders of submerged mango callas, and 5 arrangement of ivory hydrangea with curly willow branches in square vases. I also designed a large manzanita tree for the escort card table, provided a birdcage for the cards and added flowers to the cake. We finished the look by added petals to the cake, escort cards and head tables along with a of couple vases for the bouquets.
It was a beautiful wedding and Consuelo was a gorgeous bride! I was so happy to do her wedding flowers!
Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Gonzalez!
