Motorcycle Chic Wedding- Pollen and Pastry Chicago Weddings

Molly described the vision for her wedding using the words romance, party and motorcycles. When you scroll down you'll see that she absolutely achieved that vision! Her venue, Warehouse 109 is one of my favorites and Molly and her family were the absolute sweetest to work with.

Molly’s dark red/merlot and navy blue color scheme went perfectly with the venue and her pink hair! Cascading bouquets are some of my favorite to make and Molly’s bouquet featured red hanging amaranthus, Quicksand roses, burgundy scabiosa, lisianthus, and several foliages to give that draping effect. Lace from the mother of the bride’s dress was used to wrap the bouquet handle for the perfect finishing detail.

We created compote centerpieces for the head table and surrounded the couple’s Sailor Jerry rum bottles with greenery on each table.

And the dessert table was filled with a variety of cupcake flavors, from red velvet, raspberry lemonade, nutella, chocolate chip cookie, to rice crispy.

Gold and Blush Spring Wedding at the Ihotel: Pollen and Pastry Champaign Weddings

Brittany and Matt's April wedding at the Ihotel was a stunner! Brittany described her wedding vision as light, airy and clean, and her color scheme of white, blush and gold fulfilled that vision perfectly. Pair that with gorgeous photos from Rachael Schirano Photography, and this is definitely one of my favorite spring weddings!

Brittany's classic white bouquet was chock full of peonies, roses, ranunulus, stock, tweedia, veronica and plenty of greens. Spring bouquets are some of my absolute favorite!

We brought in those touches of blush to the bridesmaid's bouquets with accents of blush lisianthus, stock and carnations.

The reception was brimming with more greenery and touches of blush. Each table was accented with a garden style compote arrangement and the head table was finished with a lush garland and plenty of candlelight.

One of my favorite pieces of the day was the seating chart. Brittany had the great idea to display her seating chart on an arch and we added a garland to complete the look.

Blue and White Spring Wedding Florals: Campus, IL

The three words Erin used to describe the vision for her wedding were rustic, romantic, and bright. I think the flowers we chose for her May wedding certainly achieved that! Paired with Dani Lang's gorgeous photography, this simple spring wedding was a treat last year! Dusty blues were a popular choice in 2017 and I think that will continue for 2018.

Moody Spring Wedding Flowers

Erin's bouquet was made up of bright white roses, stock, and ranunculus with light blue delphinium for that pop of color. Silver dollar eucalyptus and Italian ruscus help soften the look.
