Company 251: Chicago’s hottest new wedding venue isn’t in Chicago…

Located in a restored warehouse that used to be a manufacturing hub for International Harvester, is newly transformed Company 251.  This new Chicago wedding venue located in Aurora, IL is the REAL DEAL!

Firstly, we were crazy excited to produce one of the very first weddings at Company 251 just a few weeks ago.  With a beautiful fall color palette and several other eye-catching decor elements, Jordan and Jack’s wedding was the perfect Life In Bloom debut for this equally stunning space. First we’ll share with you a little bit about their special day. Then we’ll tell you why we can’t get over this space.

The ceremony showcased a beautiful floral arch covered in smilax greenery, and pops of burgundy and blush roses and dahlias. The aisle was lined with thick salal garlands and gold lanterns the whole way.  Lastly, at the start of the aisle we placed two dark wood pedestals with two large focal arrangements (containing eucalyptus,stock, spray roses, dahlias, and salal) welcoming guests into the gorgeous ceremony space.

For the wedding reception, we used the garlands from the ceremony with added blooms of blush and burgundy dahlias to create one long head table design which ran the length of the venue’s gorgeous white marble tables.  In addition to the head table, the rest of the tables displayed a mix of wooden box floral centerpieces, candles, and a collection style, all with the matching fall floral palette!
