I wanted to share this beautiful blog post of a wedding Scarlet Petal designed late last year. Thanks to Misse of Honeybee Weddings for helping us make their vision come to life on their wedding day! Click here for the full post.
I first met with Noopur and Scott on an early Sunday morning after a very late and rare night out for them. It probably wasn't the most ideal time of the day to discuss all of the details of their wedding, but luckily Noopur came with a booklet of pictures for inspiration. We actually laughed about our first meeting on the day of the wedding. They both have the best sense of humor and were just a delight to work with!
This wedding was full of details, details, and even more details. I have to say that this was honestly one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever witnessed or been a part of! It wasn't just beautiful because of the hard work that went into planning, it was even more beautiful because of the relationship that Noopur and Scott have (along with their families).
As we watched their traditional Indian ceremony from afar, one might compare it to something along the lines of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". The two cultures combined resulted in an absolutely stunning outcome!! I can just blab on and on about how unique and special this experience was for our company, but I'm sure you would rather see the photos. Speaking of photos, I was so impressed with Monica Z Photography. Given there were so many details to capture, I think Monica and her team went well beyond their call of duty. I would highly recommend! Furthermore, Misse from Honeybee Weddings managed to pull this wedding together seamlessly.
Thank you again Noopur and Scott for making us a part of your special day. I wish you both a very happy and healthy future together.
This past Saturday was a busy one! We were spread out across Chicagoland with weddings at The Wit, The Morton Arboretum, and North Pond Restaurant. It was a beautiful sunny day and thank goodness since our North Pond wedding ceremony took place outside.
North Pond Restaurant is located just north of the Nature Museum on a small grassy hill overlooking a pond. It can easily claim the city's loveliest
setting with views of the city skyline that are stunning! Here's a snapshot of one of our planters that helped to frame the ceremony space just outside the entrance.
I loved the color palette of the bridesmaids' bouquets! We used textured flowers like dahlias, brunia berries, craspedia, stock, ranunculus, and dusty miller.
Erin and Nitsuh invited about 80 guests to celebrate their big day. Erin went above and beyond with her artistic touches. She placed a personalized fan on each guest chair with a crossword puzzle of questions about her and Nitsuh to keep guests busy before the start of the ceremony!
The interior of North Pond Restaurant used to be a warming building for ice skaters back in the early 1900's. Today it's a cozy and inviting restaurant that makes you feel right at home.
We used textured and earth toned flowers to highlight the reception table tops. The space deserves modest accents given the rich detailing in the natural architecture of the building. Below you'll see flowers like orange dahlia, hydrangea, bells of ireland, craspedia, pincushion protea, and wheat grass. We also accented with amber votives for a nice warm glow.
I was so excited when Misse from Honeybee Weddings informed us of Clare and Tommy's wedding feature in the new edition of CS Brides Magazine. We both worked together to make their day unforgettable. They were such a lovely and simple couple and you can tell by the pictures that their day was full of joy! (A big thanks to Misse of Honeybee and Bella Pictures for capturing the details of their special day - see photos below.)
When I met with Clare almost 2 years ago, she came in to our studio with a clear vision of what she wanted - a wedding straight out of Martha Stewart Magazine. The color palette was gorgeous in shades of apricot, peach, coral, and melon. She was a whimsical bride with a modern side, so we incorporated these styles into her personal flowers and reception decor.
We had such a wonderful time creating the decor for their big day. Thank you again Clare and Tommy for making us a part of it!
The designs covered included a 'modern vintage' bouquet of green cymbidium orchids, green viburnum, blue thistle, blue hydrangea, purple statice, and dusty miller, a DIY trio of my favorite turquoise vases that Jenny picked up earlier this week with a combination of the fuchsia and red ranunculus, and a 'green' alternative for a tall centerpiece - an oversize fern atop a silver pedestal vase. Jenny is going to send over some photos she took, so stay tuned for more to come!
