We just got a bunch of beautiful images from T + S Hughes Photography in our inbox from Sarah + Brian’s wedding this past summer at Sepia in Chicago. It is so nice to “defrost” with these soft, romantic blooms!
Sarah’s bouquet was full and fabulous with garden roses, peonies, succulents, ranunculus, and some seeded eucalyptus foliage accents. The handle was wrapped in lace and adorned with a cameo brooch and a photo frame. It was sheer perfection!
While the personal flowers kept to softer tones of mint, peach, ivory and light pink, the reception flowers brought in a little burgundy to match fabric on the banquettes at the venue. Mercury glass touches were scattered about both the cocktail space and the reception space–and “found objects” enhanced the decor as well–my favorite detail being our vintage typewriter covered with gorgeous blooms!
Since Sepia used to be a print shop we paid homage to its rich heritage with typesetter’s blocks for the “CARDS” and typewriter-fonts were used on the paper items. The couple also used one of my favorite decor vendors, Finding Eden LLC, to have custom books cut to their initials! They were such a cute touch!
A mixture of floral pieces were designed for the cocktail area with the actual centerpieces being more petite so they’d fit on the narrow rectangle tables during the reception. Everything looked smashing!
I can happily report that when I was lucky enough to make dinner reservations months before the wedding with my husband to “check out the space” and the food at SEPIA is AMAZING!!! Loved it! We will definitely go back!
Thanks again to T & S Hughes Photography for these images and to Sarah and Brian for sharing them with us!
