Frosted Winter Wedding at the Double Tree- Pollen and Pastry Bloomington-Normal Wedding

Carly and Allen’s friends planned a Super Bowl party as a secret scheme to set them up. Boy, are we glad it worked out because look at the beautiful winter wedding this union led to!


To achieve Carly’s “just barely winter” theme, we filled her bouquet with blue delphinium, white ranunculus, whimsical lisianthus, and antique roses. We also added airy pieces of Italian ruscus, baby blue and silver dollar eucalyptus to give it that extra oomph of texture.

We simply cannot get over the gorgeous way Rachael Schirano captured the lighting in these portraits!

Getting to design a flower girl crown is one of the sweetest projects of being a wedding florist and the end result is always so, so precious.

We also adored Carly’s choice of color for her bridesmaids dresses- that soft blue gives such a subtle, frosted take on a winter wedding. And the best thing about a bridesmaid dress is that you can totally shorten it and wear it again, right?

If you’d say that dessert isn’t one of the most important aspects of a wedding, you’d definitely be wrong (and you might even be crazy). Carly and Allen opted for a tiered cake to cut themselves and treated their guests to an assortment of delicious cupcakes.

We love when our couples take our dessert menu and customize flavors to represent their favorite things to be shared with their closest friends and family!

Centerpieces can be as simple or as elaborate as you please. And sometimes, they’re a little bit of both.

We used repeating patterns of eucalyptus, hydrangeas, and blue delphinium to bring out the same light wintry look.

Carly and Allen, your wedding day was beautiful and we were so blessed to be a part of it! Congratulations, you two!
