Mindy and Keith were married on the rooftop of their building and had their reception at Rock Bottom Brewery in Chicago afterward. Their colors were shades of yellow and gray with ivory and aqua accents. Flowers included garden roses, tulips, billy balls, ranunculus, peonies, germinis, yarrow, fever few, dahlias, brunia, solidago, and jonquils with silver sage and dusty miller foliage.
For the Personal flowers, Mindy carried a monochromatic yellow bouquet with touches of ivory. Flowers included peonies, ranunculus, tulips, garden roses and billy balls and the handle was wrapped in aqua ribbon with pearl detail. The Maid of Honor carried an all-bright yellow bouquet with silver brunia and foliage accents and a pewter ribbon-wrapped handle. The Mother of the Bride carried a tussy-mussy sized bouquet of white and yellow and the Mother of Groom and Grandmother wore match wrist corsages in yellow, white and gray. Keith’s bout consisted of 2 billy balls, 1 yellow ranunculus and silver brunia accents with exposed stems while the fathers had 2 billy balls, 1 white ranunculus and brunia accents. The Groomsmen had 3 billy balls with brunia and exposed stems.
We did not do any flowers for the ceremony, but I we did a bunch of items for the reception. Among my favorite reception details were all of Mindy’s DIY projects including the constellation table numbers and escort cards, the misc. signs she made, the flags for the cupcakes and the little people topper for the cake. She also had this awesome “Keith and Mindy” drawing that an artist designed for her on display on the escort card table. Loved it all.
For the rest of the decor though, Mindy provided vintage vases and containers and other items for us that we put out filled with flowers and candles. I also supplemented her items with mason jars and candle items from our collection to make sure the tables were filled with great finds! Inside the vases and mason jars I used a variety of mostly yellow with some white flowers. For the highboys and escort card tables I made mixed arrangements, but for the centerpieces we kept each flower segmented by type/color. The overall look was a fun, bold, eclectic mix of vases, candles and flowers and no two tables looked the same!
The escort card table was one of my favorites ever–because of the cute illustration of them and the cake stands and frames I used to display their DIY escort cards. It had many levels and items and looked really awesome when completed. I also designed a beautiful floral-rimmed card holder birdcage for the gift table that was accented with some vased arrangements and there were little ceramic birds Mindy provided put around the space as well.
The sweetheart table got vases for the bouquets and votives, and the cupcake tree was also decorated with an assortment of flowers.
Everything was just so fun! I LOVED doing this wedding.
A big CONGRATS to Mindy & Keith!
