Let’s brighten your day with a gorgeous, romantic July wedding! As we are meeting with brides for 2017/2018 weddings, Kelsey’s wedding has been such an inspiration.
Kelsey and Kyle’s wedding was at The Ravisloe Country Club in Homewood, IL. Never heard of it? Well, you are missing out on this hidden gem in the south suburbs of Chicago! Spanish mission-style architecture, ivy-covered walls, terracotta tiles, those are just a few of the amazing details of this beautiful venue! It was the perfect place to have an outdoor ceremony in July! With outdoor ceremonies, we always keep a close eye on the weather to make sure it’s not going to rain on the couple’s big day. We usually have marquees on stand-by just in case the weather does take a turn and today was no different! Luckily, the weather held up and the sun was shining all day.
Their sunset ceremony was filled with beautiful music from a string trio as Kyle and Kelsey became husband and wife. Following was a cocktail hour and then dinner and dancing in one of the most stunning spaces we’ve had the privilege of designing. Soft romance was magnified as the room filled with golden sunlight.
Kelsey’s beautiful color palette of blush, golds, and soft greens were a perfect fit for the reception space. All of the chosen elements truly complemented each other. Succulents, unique brass lantern centerpieces, and romantic candelabras were the backdrop to the gorgeous blooms of roses, lisianthus, and lush greenery such as seeded eucalyptus we used. Kelsey loved unexpected elements, like succulents, and using flowers in unique ways. We also used baby’s breath, as a “lace” like element to the bouquets. I also surprised Kelsey with the cafe au lait dahlias in her bouquet. They were too stunning to pass up, and it was sheer perfection to her vision.
