Today we will talk about a stunning JW Marriott Wedding. A perfect blend of classic and elegant in the heart of Chicago filled with bold colors like purple and a touch of turquoise turquoise and accented by soft metals, upscale blooms, and the romance of candlelight.
Darien carried a lush, hand-tied bouquet with a natural cascade of arching blooms composed of exquisite white peonies, “Picasso” calla lilies, classic creamy roses, lavender miniature garden roses, cream calla lilies, white stock, arching white phalaenopsis orchids, and a soft bed of variegated greenery to support the blooms. Her bridesmaids carried clutch bouquets to complement their majestic purple dresses of roses, miniature garden roses, orchids, stock, and eucalyptus with handles wrapped in pewter silk ribbon.
For their guest tables, we repurposed the beauty of the bridesmaid’s bouquets in silver footed vases as well as created lush design of purple blooms with touches of white.
This couple is seriously the sweetest. Not only did they have us create a “Happily Ever After” bouquet, which was provided to the couple that wins the longest marriage dance, but they donated all of their leftover florals to a nursing home and hospital patients! We love when couples give their blooms to a good cause.
Thank you to Darien and Ben for having us “floralize” your beautiful day. It truly is an honor to have worked with such an amazing couple. Wishing you a million years of happiness!
