Red, White and Blue 4th of July Blooms

Kim and Rob were married at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel and had their reception at the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza overlooking the Chicago River. The stunning room with a view was filled with beautiful red, white and blue 4th of July touches from the flowers to the favors! The flowers included red, white and light blue blooms including roses, hydrangea, Stephanotis, stock, Delphinium, and orchids. These two photos of the lovely couple and bridal party come courtesy of my talented photographer friend Kara Schultz. Thanks Kara!

For the personal flowers, Kim carried a festive bouquet of light blue hydrangea, red roses, white roses, white stock, light blue hybrid delphinium, Stephanotis and a little red Bee Balm. The Stephanotis looked like little stars and the Bee Balm looked like little fireworks. The bridesmaids carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet without these additions. The bouts and corsages were made of roses and orchids to match the bouquets. For the ceremony, I filled 2 baskets with white roses petals to be tossed at the couple. Hopefully the only shower that afternoon was a petal shower! For the reception, I filled 2 vases that Kim provided with white and light blue hydrangea and put them on the gift table. Kim provided her own hour-glass shaped vase card holder and decorated it with fun ribbons. Kim's maid of honor made some fabulous escort cards that look like tickets and Kim collaged her own table numbers that were shadow-boxes with tons of details! The table numbers sat next to my centerpieces which were 12 inch cylinder vases filled with either a red mokara orchid and blue stones or a white dendrobium orchid and red stones with a floating candle at top. All of them were placed on the venue's charger plates and surrounded by petals. I also put vases for the bouquets on the head table along with more petals and votives. Petals also rimmed the cake table, gift table and escort card/photo table.

It was a beautiful wedding and I cannot wait to see the rest of the photos Kara Schultz took of Kim and Rob!

Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Grzymala!
