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.

Lauren and Justin were married on this very terrace with 100 of their closest family and friends. The spot overlooks an architectural garden and is just steps away from Lake Michigan, a stunning Chicago setting. Their style was absolutely […]

Dancing is one of the main activities at any wedding celebration.  So it only makes sense that you really invest in creating a unique Wedding Dance Floor for you and your guests to enjoy.  And there are many ways that you can use decor to breathe life onto your dance floor.  So without further ado, […]

At Life In Bloom, we are always trying to design events where the decor withstands the test of time.  We are deliberate about choosing materials (floral product, vases, linens, etc. ) that we believe to be truly timeless and elegant.  That being said, here are 6 Wedding Trends for 2018 that we are so excited […]

In the midst of a busy wedding season, we slowed down to create this beautiful Chicago Illuminating Company wedding. Since their wedding was filled with fine textures and the sweetest blooms, it’s one of our favorites. Our lovely bride, Sophie, grew up in France and wanted to incorporate touches of home throughout her Chicago Illuminating Company wedding. […]
