Ah… a favorite summer wedding to talk about today! When I met fashionista Jillian I knew we were going to have a fabulous wedding! Her impeccable style, taste and love of fashion… I couldn’t contain myself at our consultation! Kate Spade inspired her wedding, so we ran with it by utilizing modern gold vases and lanterns with hot pink blooms. Oriental lilies, lush roses, luxurious hydrangea, and the unexpected detail of an arching fern were just a few of the striking details. And the topper to this wedding – We created “purse bouquets” instead of the traditional bouquets, since hello Kate Spade purses are our fave!
The venue, CD & ME, is a unique space in Frankfort, Illinois with two venues on the property. Jillian and Tim’s reception was held in the tented area, and with the cafe lights and fabulous layout, the setting really maximized all of Jillian’s elements.
Her bouquet was a stunner, a box purse from Charming Charlie’s and we used only the premium of the premium. Luxurious orchids from phalaenopsis to vandas. Luscious peonies. Decadent garden roses. Dutch hydrangeas.
The boutonnieres for the handsome gentlemen were… of course a unique element, too. Instead of a traditional bloom secured with a pin, we created a pave design that really complimented the tuxedos.
Unveiled killed it with the event design which included black linens, black and white runners, and gold polka dots.
And to stay with the theme of unexpected details, by not using the escort cards of traditional folded cardstock, instead it was a beautiful oversized mirror with hand written calligraphy from Rebeca Lynn which we added a soft garland to.
Creative Cakes made a modern and fun cake, and we added orchids and peonies as the finishing touch.
