It is always a breath of fresh air when our clients come to us wanting a truly unique floral palette.  Meredith and Casey used their floral palette to determine the color palette for the rest of their Summer wedding at The Ivy Room in July.  Their linens, their stationary, even their napkins were all influenced […]

Anyone who knows us, knows that we love a good winter wedding.  Especially a January wedding! A January wedding is perfect for intimate, glowing candle-lit wedding ceremonies because it is already dark (at least in Chicago) by like 4:00pm so it is easy to create that warm cozy vibe.  This mood pretty much sums up […]

This past September, we were so excited to bring Katie and Ryan’s Ovation Wedding to life! And we were even luckier to work alongside T and S Hughes Photography who captured their fall wedding so wonderfully. Full of deep colored flowers including dahlias and scabiosa, their wedding flowers encapsulated everything that we love about fall […]

This past Spring, we had the privilege of designing and producing Emily and Ian’s Wedding at Exmoor Country Club in Highland Park.  This was just our second wedding at Exmoor Country Club and the tent, which gets set up just off of the club’s main dining room is the perfect setting for a Spring wedding!  […]

This past Spring, the Life In Bloom team, alongside Stephanie Cook of The Creative Planners, designed and produced this stunning Chicago History Museum wedding with chinoiserie vases and an abundance of hot pink orchids.  The end result was a stunning mix of old meets new, traditional meets contemporary!  The face of the bride as she […]

This past Fall, we designed and produced the floral and decor for the first Ace Hotel Chicago wedding.  So-Jin and Kevin wanted a wedding with jewel tones and warm lighting throughout the space, which was perfect for what ended up being a cool and rainy day in October. With a palette of burgundy, plum, maroon, […]

It seems like just yesterday, but somehow it has been two months since we had the privilege of producing the most beautiful Langham Chicago Wedding we’ve ever seen!  The green and white floral palette included some of our favorite Spring Blooms, specifically the Spirea, along with large branches of Olive, which completely transformed the Langham Chicago […]

Nestled in the heart of River North, sits an ivy covered building, properly named, The Ivy Room. This is not the first wedding we have blogged at the location, as it is one of our favorite wedding spots. Last fall, Jess and Joel tied the knot at this venue and we could not have been […]

Gena and Sean celebrated their “big day” with a Morgan Manufacturing Wedding this past February. The couple wanted a winter-glam atmosphere, so picture this: guests enter the cocktail hour to find their names on suspended acrylic escort card boards. The names were printed on post-it notes, a personal touch since the couple has a history […]

A picturesque wedding day looks like this one: beginning in the gardens of the Armour House and ending inside the marble filled ballroom. Kimmy and Joe said “I do” on the sunniest day of September at this stunning venue with 100 of their closest friends and family. The sweet couple could not have been more […]
