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 entered the Chicago History Museum’s main ballroom for the very first time says it all!
May 19th 2018. This was the day of the Royal Wedding. And it happened right here in Chicago at The Chicago History Museum Wedding Ballroom! Given what was going on across the big pond that very same day, it seemed only fitting that Maggie should carry a Bouquet of only Lily of the Valley, just like many of the past royal princesses. And Maggie looked as royal as any bride we’ve ever seen! Additionally, the decor at the Chicago History Museum was fit for both a king and queen. Their vision of bold spring colors mixed within blue and white china vases came to life beautifully.
Next, as previously mentioned, Maggie carried a lily of the valley bouquet. Her bridesmaids carried bouquets of hot pink garden roses, pink peonies, green hypericum berries, and blue delphinium. And inside the Chicago History Museum, the tables were set with a similar floral palette with the addition of light green hydrangea, white lilac, and Pink Orchids that spilled out of tall vases. The vibrant colors made quite a statement amongst the primarily white ballroom.
No wedding is complete without those additional decor details that give it its personality. And this wedding had PLENTY of personality. The chairs, the linens, the monogrammed napkins, the gold flatware. All of these beautiful elements made Maggie and Newton’s wedding the ryoal affair that they so deserved.
