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 […]

Kim and Alex wanted simple but chic style for their fall wedding at Bridgeport Art Center. Judging by the incredible photos from Lisa Berry Photography, that is exactly what they got. Bridgeport Art Center set the stage for an urban, Chicago wedding. The wooden interior and stunning city views are absolutely breath-taking! Kim’s bouquet was filled […]

The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago has the most beautiful terrace for an intimate outdoor wedding. 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 […]

In the midst of a busy wedding season, we slowed down to create this beautiful Chicago Illuminating Company wedding.

Our lovely bride, Sophie, grew up in France and wanted to incorporate touches of home throughout her Chicago Illuminating Company wedding. […]

2017 was an incredible year for the Life In Bloom team!  We designed and produced 51 weddings, 6 corporate events, 2 baby showers, and 1 bachelorette flower-crown workshop.  Contrast that to 43 weddings and 3 corporate events that we had in 2016 and you can see why this year was such a whirlwind!  None of […]

This year, for the Life In Bloom Holiday Party, we hosted our team at our new home with one noteworthy surprise.  We transformed our dining room into a life-sized gingerbread house! The gingerbread house was actually pretty simple to construct.  Using just cardboard from leftover boxes (florist problems), craft paper, white acrylic paint, candy-cane patterned […]

Bonjour Bebe! One of our favorite showers to date was held in the Club Room at 2550 N. Lakeview this Fall. Baby Jake was welcomed home with a French inspired baby shower to meet his new family and friends. Guests were welcomed with decadent bites by Truffleberry Market, photos with baby Jake, and a bouquet […]

We met Torie and Amarit one night in Lincoln Park and were instantly captivated by their eye for design and appreciation for our craft. Not only were they getting married at one of our favorite wedding spots, The Ivy Room, but they were excited to hear about our favorite items to design. Together we created […]

Carroll and Eric wanted to bring a taste of Colorado to their Ivy Room fall wedding in Chicago, and that is exactly what we did. Using antlers, twigs, hanging amaranthus, berries, and a whole lot of natural foliage we brought the outdoors… in! There were so many unique pieces we want to highlight from this Ivy […]
