If you have ever been to the Chicago History Museum, you know how incredibly beautiful the space is. So it was important to our couple, Rachel and Aaron, that we create a look that fit the preppy, yet elegant venue.
We had the pleasure of working with Emily of Five Grain Events which was a treat because by the time the couple came to us, they had a pretty clear idea of the style that they were after. Overall they wanted to create a fresh, organic feel, and to do that we started off by creating a custom walnut-stained Chuppah to give an organic feel to the ceremony. From the Chuppah, we draped a lush garland accented with white spray roses and peonies and intertwined it with a fabric cover that had been passed down from the Groom’s family.
Flanking the start of each aisle were two urns filled with an oversized arrangement of olive branches. Each chair along the aisle was accented with the cutest little bouquets consisting of spray roses, seeded eucalyptus, and olive.
After the ceremony, guests mingled in the foyer where they found their dinner seating assignments hung on a boxwood-covered wall, keeping with the overall green feel of the wedding. Upon entering the main ballroom, the simplicity of the tall olive arrangements was captivating. A 20’+ garland adorned the head table accented with the glow of LED flickering candles and each napkin received a beautiful menu and sprig of olive. Simply put: No detail was left unnoticed.
