Whimsical Spring Wedding at Lee County 4-H Center- Pollen and Pastry Illinois Wedding

What’s better than a beautifully decorated whimsical wedding? A beautifully decorated whimsical wedding, featuring a bride who is also bold enough to rock a black leather jacket! We were amazed by Alex’s impeccable taste in style ( I mean, check out that STUNNING Stella York gown) as well as her floral color palette.

Wild, organic stems of eucalyptus, blush lisianthus, and white ranunculus are what you see throughout Alex’s bouquet. Brides, don’t be afraid to mix femininity with masculine touches. That soft kiss of blush against the fierce backdrop of Alex’s leather jacket will have us fist-pumping all of our days.

Flatlays are some of our favorite shots, because they provide sweet little snapshots into the details of the day. These images by Rachel Osborn are styled so intricately and delicately - by adding in some of our own flower product as props, Jordan from Ever After Planning really made this stationary pop!

Who says corsages and boutonnieres all have to look the same? Alex invited us to get a little creative with the design and we think these white and blush ranunculus and ivory ribbons really set the tone for such an ethereal vision.

Have you ever seen an entire gang of bridesmaids in leather jackets? If this is the new trend, we’ll be the first to jump on board!

The tablescapes were kept simple, with lots of candles and just a runner of greenery and the occasional antique rose head here and there, but that head table speaks for itself on stage, showcasing a 20 foot long garland!

The bride and groom’s guests got to chow down on a feast of our salted caramel macarons, white chocolate raspberry cupcakes, chocolate chip cookies, and last of all our famous raspberry macarons. Did we mention macarons already?

Alex and Taylor, we count it a blessing to be able to say that we were among the 400 lucky people who can say they were a part of the most special day of your lives. Thank you for choosing Pollen & Pastry to be your florist and baker!
