Chicago History Museum Wedding with Shades of Blue

Chicago History Museum Wedding

When designing a wedding, you first begin with the space. What are you working with? Do you need to drape the walls, add new lighting fixtures, swap out the chairs? The Chicago History Museum is the most gorgeous space for a wedding and is beautiful by itself. The white walls have intricate millwork, crystal chandeliers in all the right places, and the classiest checkered marble floor. These details – along with the gorgeous plaza are what makes a Chicago History Museum wedding such a hit!

Sarah & Nick – 6.1.19

Sarah & Nick’s wedding was absolutely timeless. They wanted a fresh and romantic design with unique textures and pops of those gorgeous blues. Fluffy blooms like hydrangea, peonies and ranunculus were mixed with textures like thistle, delphinium, dusty miller and olive.

Sarah’s bouquet was filled with all peonies, olive and a touch of dusty miller. The men’s boutonnieres were made of white ranunculus, olive and a touch of thistle to tie in the blue details. Blue silk ribbon was even tied onto the stems of the men’s boutonnieres.

The linens absolutely transformed the reception room. A muted, rich blue was mixed with a blue and white patterned linen of your dreams. People tend to shy away from mixing linens, but when done correctly, can elevate the design immensely! The stone and silver mercury glass details of the vases added yet another gorgeous texture. White bars were set in the space with blue and white china topiaries to tie in the linen pattern. To complete the room, white band front planters were filled with a clean boxwood hedge.
