Lavender Summer Wedding at Oak Hill- Pollen and Pastry Chicago Weddings

I'm sitting here writing this post on the most dreary of winter days and I can only just imagine the warm summer days that were captured in these photos! Laura and Donovan's summer wedding at Oak Hill was simply gorgeous. We did the personal flowers for the couple and I just loved Laura's color scheme of dusty shades of purple and blush.

One of my favorite details from this wedding were the Stephanotis flowers tucked into the Mother of the Bride's wrist corsage and into the bridal bouquet. Laura's mom had Stephanotis in her bouquet 35 years earlier and she surprised her by adding that in. How sweet is that!

Some of Laura's favorite flowers and foliages were garden roses, eucalyptus, and lavender so we made sure to feature those in her garden style bouquet. Other flowers in the bouquet included ranunculus, stock, several varieties of roses and spray roses, a few of those special Stephanotis flowers and plenty of greenery varieties. The smell was intoxicating!

Jewel Tones for Fall: Pollen and Pastry Chicago Weddings

I was in love with Jenna's jewel tone color scheme from the second she filled out her questionnaire! Those shades of blues, purples and reds were really the perfect color scheme for an October wedding. And let's be honest, I was dying to use my collection of vintage jewel toned pieces to complement this wedding. Flea market hunting is one of my favorite past times!

The colors popped so well against the gorgeous marsala dresses the bridesmaids wore!

Jenna's bouquet was full of purple hydrangeas, stock and lisianthus, blue eryngium, and burgundy ranunculus, carnations and cymbidiums. Several types of greenery added some fun texture to the bouquets!

The centerpieces were a combination of tall vases with branches, our small jewel toned glassware filled with flowers and emerald compote vases filled with similar flowers.

The couple's cake was one of my favorites of 2017. We started with a simple buttercream covered cake and added florals and greenery to bring it to life.

Couldn't have asked for a sweeter couple to work with!
