This wedding took place at the Chicago Botanic Garden. For the ceremony, we brought the garden to the chuppah with Coral charm peonies and David Austin garden roses arranged in asymmetrical swaths giving the impression of an enchanted overgrown arbor. We then rooted the structure in drifts of flowers “growing” around it. Folkloric hollyhocks and foxgloves will strike fetching silhouettes against lower, feathery masses of delphinium, forget-me-nots and fragrant lavender and mint. Chic collections of overstuffed velvet love seats and vintage chairs added a layer of luxury to the scene. The reception celebrated the bride’s devotion to sustainable agriculture with market fresh summer delicacies, and an effortless, rustic vibe. We built custom terrarium chandeliers and festooned them with floral garlands to glow overhead while a marvelous display of echeveria succulents and terrariums were styled with masses of midsummer flowers on long farm tables below.
