Jessica and Jay - September 1, 2018

What started as a gloomy and rainy morning, turned into this beautiful sun and love filled day. Jessica and Jay tied the knot on September 1, 2018 and turned their family of four into one big bundle of love. Being more than just a day of coordinator for this couple, I really got to spend the time and get to know them on a more personal level. Jay would always sit in on the meetings and let Jessica do all the talking, while he was quieter and more reserved. It wasn’t until the month before the wedding that he was more outspoken, calling me with these ideas, and really expressing how he wanted the day to showcase their love. Family traveled from all over to be here for their big day, including their friend and DJ, Mike “DJ Kutz” who came that morning from Detroit!

The way the two of them looking at each other still brings tears to our eyes. See it in these photos below!


Congratulations, Jessica and Jay! Forever wishing you a life time of love and laughter.

Chicago Blue Hues

Somewhere in the craziness we like to call “Wedding Season” we took part in a beautiful ethereal photo shoot. I always love working with Allie and John Photography but something about this shoot was special. It was during the busiest time of year for most wedding professionals. So attempting to get this together, we needed nothing short of a miracle. Turns out, the loveliness that all of these vendors contributed was much more beautiful than we could have ever dreamed of! It was even featured with Wedding Day Online. Check it out here!

Our models, a real life husband and wife team, looked so stunning in the most perfect lighting that Allie personally scouted out. It created what we can only call perfection. Amazing makeup and hair for our lovely Bride, Rebeca who also hand crafted the heavenly invitation suite. The gown was beyond remarkable and the desserts fit flawlessly into theme.

I feel so honored to have been chosen to design the tablescape for this styled shoot. From start to finish it was divine, sublime and exquisite! Each detail reminiscent of the Lake Michigan shoreline with hints of Vintage loveliness. Click through the gallery to get the full image of all of these incredible deets!

Love always,

Brooklyn & Nathaniel - June 16, 2018

June was a busy month for us which was very different from previous years. We usually got a ton of Fall brides but never this many in early summer. Each one was beautiful and unique and we adored every minute of it. Brooklyn & Nathaniel were no exception. The wedding was so lovely and the couple so beautiful. We are always a bit sad when we don’t get to plan the event. But, it is always super exciting to be able to create such colorful floral for such an important day! This was one of my favs. It even got featured in The Wedding Mag!


Here’s what we said about it in the magazine…

“Our Bride Brooklynn was such a beautiful and carefree soul. She was so sweet walking into my office, not sure exactly what she wanted in terms of flower types.  She told me she didn’t want anything too flashy, just colorful and fun, which matches her personality perfectly.  Billowy white drapery above the dance floor, pink napkins on the tables, and pops of blue, pink and yellow floral everywhere.  The centerpieces were precious and simplistic which fell into theme well.  Some tables adorned rustic wooden details with ball jars filled with the same bright colors and some held gold lanterns with a floral wreath around the base atop crisp white linens.  And after the ballroom was set, it looked just like Brooklynn… colorful, bright and fun! 

Kayla, the photographer really captured the vibrant colors of the day.  I just cannot stop looking at these photos! It was simply stunning all around and Brooklyn really chose an all star team of wedding professionals.  Flawless EVERYTHING.  Hair, Makeup, gown, we loved it all! And although I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting the groom, looking at the photos tells me he is a gem too.”

We wish you the very best Brooklyn & Nathaniel!
