Lau (aka “Love”) and Alvin were married at St. Patrick’s Church in Wadsworth and had their small reception at Flatwater on the River in Chicago. Their colors were pewter, black and white with a touch of red.
For the Personal Flowers, Lau wanted a cascading Phaleanopsis orchid bouquet with callas. It was huge and stunning and she loved it. Alvin wore a Phaleanopsis orchid bout and the rest of the guys got Dendrobium orchids or mini callas. The wrist corsages were a mix of orchids and sweetheart roses and the flower girl got a red mini carnation pomander.
For the ceremony, we did a monogrammed aisle runner and 2 tall calla altarpieces with black curly willow branches. All of the items were later moved to the reception.
For the reception, Lau and Alvin sat at a sweetheart table that was decorated with a damask runner and clear and red votive holders with candles. The guests sat at tables with a damask runner and submerged dendrobium orchid cylinders with floating candles on top. They were simple and chic and really added to the stunning riverside ambiance.
Tiffany and I loved working with Lau planning her wedding flowers. Lau is my friend Stefanie’s sister-in-law so she knew she wanted to use us after being in Stef’s wedding a couple years ago. I am so glad everything worked out and we were a part of Lau’s wedding.
Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Sievert!
