Bright and Airy Wedding at Pear Tree Estate- Pollen and Pastry Champaign, IL Wedding

Pear Tree Estate has a way of making anything and everything in it’s light appear equally as beautiful. There’s just something to be said about a venue that looks good enough for a bride to walk down the aisle in her Sunday morning sweats and still be wedding-ready.

We love this photo of Leslie getting ready to marry Andrew. Can’t you just feel the building anticipation and excitement stirring?

We made simple hand-tied bouquets to adorn each row of chivari chairs, held there with long hanging bows of champagne ribbon. Intricate sprigs of olive branches, eucalyptus, and blush roses added just the right touch of delicacy.

We designed taller aisle pieces to go on top of two of our gold vase rentals, which served to frame either side of the altar. Longer stems of plumosa and eucalyptus added an ethereal, draping effect, while white mums and blush garden roses pulled together the soft pinks and golden hues of the room.

Nothing but smiles for Leslie and Andrew on their wedding day. Just look at how these two look at each other!

We believe the term “go big or go home” most definitely applies to your wedding desserts. Pear Tree set up the perfect hanging table to arrange a beautiful array of our cupcakes and delicious brownies from LA Gourmet Catering, for Leslie and Andrew’s guests. Not to mention a tiered naked cake with buttercream frosting and a garden rose garnish.

If you haven’t caught on to the wooden farmhouse table trend yet, the following images will win you over.

Leslie and Andrew opted to alternate their guest tables with an array of varied centerpieces. Boxed rectangle planters, gold compotes, and tall risers playing host to olive branches filled the room with the greatest combination of texture and shape.

A beautiful wedding day and a stunning bride and groom to match. Congratulations, Leslie and Andrew!

Thank you Sweet Darlings Photography for sharing these lovely images and as always, to Pear Tree Estate, for being such a gracious host.

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.

Marsala and Blush Fall Wedding at Pear Tree Estate: Pollen and Pastry Champaign Weddings

Jonathan and Victoria were an absolute pleasure to plan a wedding with! Victoria planned the entire wedding while juggling Vet Med School and a busy life and she did it all with grace! So glad we could work with this sweet couple.

This simple arbor from Spruce Wedding Rentals was the perfect base to attach our lush florals to.

Blush Summer Allerton Park Wedding- Central Illinois Wedding Florist

Wedding planning doesn't have to be a stressful process! Every once in awhile, I complete a wedding without ever meeting with the bride and groom in person. We plan the entire wedding florals over the phone and email and always end with a great result! This recent June wedding was one of those weddings! 

Melissa was absolutely great to work with. She requested a color scheme of dark green, ivory, blush and gold for her summer wedding at Allerton Park and what she chose came together greatly!

Her blush bouquet was made up of garden roses, hydrangeas, spray roses, spirea, succulents, and plenty of foliages. 

When I finally met Melissa on her wedding day, I realized what a beautiful and sweet bride she was and the photos that Micah McCoy Studio shared are just gorgeous!
