It’s not Thursday, but we’re throwing it back today to 2014! Showing off this gorgeous, modern, and chic Chicago wedding is a must. Jennifer and Jeffrey are picture-perfect. Sure, we’re biased, but we have the most lovely and beautiful couples!
Their ceremony couldn’t have had a more perfect backdrop. Holy Name Cathedral is absolutely gorgeous. And their formals with our gorgeous city playing a role? Perfect.
Jennifer’s bouquet was a stunner! A romantic, textural bouquet of cafe au lait dahlias (the perfect fall flower), elegant orchids, classic calla lilies, garden roses, luscious lisianthus, and the fluffiest hydrangea. The final touch was incorporating the rosary, which was such a touching tribute to her heritage. Complementing the blush bridesmaid dresses, we utilized ivory and white blooms to showcase the color palettes. Even though we are florally biased, a classic black tux, with just a crisp pocket square is the epitome of modern elegance.
The head table was adorned with the beauty of the bouquets and enhanced by our classic stemmed candle holders with floating candles. For the centerpieces, we varied between three height levels to add depth to the reception space. First was a tall, silver trumpet vase topped with a textural and rounded design of dahlias, garden roses, and hydrangea. The second style was a design similar to the first style, placed upon our silver stands. Finally, there was a lush and full wreath design, set around the base of our stemmed candle holder trio.
The couple had so many sweet details, like their table numbers! They showcased the couple at the number corresponding to their ages! Alliance Bakery made a stunning and delicious cake. We love getting to adorn stunning cakes with luscious waterfalls of florals. And that ceiling treatment is beautiful! Working with Gina of One Fine Day Events is always a pleasure. We knew all of the elements were perfectly planned!
Thanks to all the vendors who worked so hard to make this a beautiful wedding. And thanks to Jennifer and Jeffrey for allowing us to “floralize” your wedding.Wishing you all the best for years to come!
