Tanya and Jim’s wedding at City Winery in Chicago was awesome! Luckily our friends at Tim Tab Studios were there to capture all of the awesomeness. With a white and green color palette and a love of dark foliage it was easy to create a look that Tanya loved. Peonies, ranunculus, hydrangea, roses, dendrobium orchids, stock, protea, tulips, spray roses, Israeli ruscus, ruscus, lily grass, camelia foliage, and magnolia leaves were all used to create the beautiful designs. Tanya’s bouquet and the escort card table arrangement were my most favorite pieces I designed! When a client says: “make whatever you want for our escort card table at XYZ pricepoint, we trust you” GREAT THINGS HAPPEN…
City Winery ended up being a totally awesome venue to work at (and eat at–we had some yummy brunch while we were setting up!) We look forward to working there again!
Thanks to Tim Tab Studios for the photos and to awesome bride Tanya for sharing them with us!]]>
Easily one of my favorite bouquets I’ve ever made–Celia’s bouquet DAZZLED with garden roses, lilac, phaleanopsis orchids, peonies, ranunculus, lisianthus, roses, lavender, sweet pea and dusty miller…and it smelled amazing too!
Thank you to Tamara Gruner Photography who captured this stunning image for us!
Lianne and Mitchell’s bright and bold wedding at Danada House this summer was just fabulous! There was no shortage of color and everything POPPED against the beautiful backdrop of green grass and white picket fences. Our favorite floral features included Lianne’s bold bouquet, the venue’s arch decorated with hanging ribbons, bling and flowers and the floral-framed engagement photo in the foyer.
The bridesmaids wore a bright cobalt blue color and everyone carried bold bouquets which included a large mix of blooms including hypericum berries, mokara orchids, cymbidium orchids, roses, billy balls, spray roses, lisianthus, and delphinium.
I loved working with this couple to plan their amazing wedding. It was great to see it all come together so beautifully in person and in these lovely photos too!

I loved making this bold, bright, beautiful bouquet for Lianne’s Danada House wedding this past summer! It was captured beautifully here by Artistrie Co. This bouquet featured roses, garden roses, spray roses, biully balls, cymbidium orchids, vanda orchids, mokara orchids, hypericum berries, lisianthus, and delphinium in colors of white, magenta, hot pink, fuchsia, purple, yellow, orange, green and blue.]]>
There were two styles of centerpieces–one was a tall silver pilsner of tall callas, yellow oncidium orchids and hydrangea surrounded by 3 white ceramic squares of yellow carnations + cymbidium orchids; the other was a trio of mixed vases with clustered and color-blocked textural blooms and foliage–orchids, roses, hydrangea, snapdragons, stock, peonies, billy balls, yarrow, callas, carnations, salal, dusty miller, tulips, etc.
Leigh and Matt were married in front of trains, planes and
automobiles robots! It was quite a unique and memorable wedding and we loved working with them!

Stephanie’s bouquet was bright, bold and beautiful and loaded with texture! Orange and hot pink Asiatic lilies, callas, and freesia were wrapped in satin with a burlap overlay. Stephanie and Bradley were married at Fisherman’s Inn Wedding in Elburn, Illinois and Joy Lyn Photography captured all of the loveliness of this wedding here on her blog (we just did the personal flowers for this one, the bride’s family actually DIY’ed the lovely reception decor!)]]>
P + D’s intimate wedding at Redfield Estate in Glenview was just picture-perfect! We are so lucky that Tamara Gruner was there to capture all of the beautiful details! The bridal bouquet and the pave floral arch were my most favorite details of all! Roses, peonies, hydrangea, queen Anne’s lace, astilbe, ranunculus, spray roses, amaranthus, and an assortment of beautiful foliages made up the floral assortment.
The bride was all about details–and she picked so many lovely things–from the floral chair decorations she had us design to the assorted mercury glass votives and lace runners she provided, everything was pristine and just perfect for their quaint outdoor ceremony and reception. We were so happy to be a part of this dreamy & romantic wedding!]]>
In June we did an absolutely beautiful wedding for Celia and Julian at Anderson Japanese Gardens in Rockford with a reception at Makray Memorial Golf Club in Barrington. It was beautifully captured by Tamara Gruner Photography who was gracious enough to share a bunch of fabulous images with me–so please enjoy!
Celia and Julian chose a purple, lavender, yellow and white color palette for their wedding and flowers included hydrangea, roses, billy balls, yarrow, spray roses, garden roses, lilac, lisianthus, stock, dusty miller, seeded eucalyptus, snapdragons, phaleanopsis orchids, brunia, lavender herb, peonies, ranunculus, and baby’s breath.
My favorite pieces from the wedding have to be Celia’s amazing bouquet and the fabulous wedding cake! I also loved BOTH of the arches–our pave floral one that was used for the ceremony, and the 4-post canopy arch that was used over the sweetheart table at the reception.
Everything was just so lovely and came together beautifully. Celia was so trusting of us and knew that we could make her vintage romantic rustic feel come to life. We are so glad that we got to be a part of this beautiful wedding. It was unforgettable!
Thanks again to Tamara Gruner Photography for these beautiful images.
Becky and Jon’s bold and beautiful wedding at Danada House in Wheaton was absolutely amazing! Luckily, Robb Davidson Photography captured it wonderfully…(this shot of Becky ascending the stairs is just blowing my mind!)
Becky and Jon had totally unique colors–raspberry/fuchsia, yellow and silver/gray. We’ve never done a color palette quite like this before–and it looked great! Becky’s bouquet was probably my favorite detail of the day. It was made of peonies, callas and some spray roses in mostly white with a few pops of fuchsia and yellow throughout.
I loved working with this wonderful couple and am so glad they continued the “family tradition” of using me as their wedding florist! I actually did Becky’s brother’s wedding 3 years ago and it was also really awesome. Check out the gallery for that one here. I cannot tell you how happy referrals make us! Happy clients get us more happy clients and we really, truly appreciate all of the love! Thanks & congrats Becky and Jon!
