Spring Wedding Inspiration with Blush, Peach and Purple Flowers at Elkspace, The Sentinel Hotel

Earlier this year I collaborated on a wedding inspiration shoot with some of the best vendors in Portland, OR! Spring is one of the best times of the year for beautiful flowers, so I went all out with shades of white, blush, purple and green flowers. Lots of amazing ranunculus, hellebores, spirea and tweedia too!

French Garden Inspired Seattle Wedding with Purple, Pink and White Flowers

This French inspired editorial was one of my favorites from last year. I traveled up to Seattle for the very first time and enjoyed every minute of it! This shoot was a labor of love by all of the vendors listed below and we all had a great time styling and working together that chilly day. :)

Some of the flowers I used here are garden roses, clematis, viburnum and ranunculus. This shoot took place in November, so this is a pretty good glance at what winter wedding flowers could look like. Hope you enjoy!

Thank you to Belles & Bubbles for the beautiful feature earlier this year!

Sophisticated White and Green Wedding Flowers in Chicago, at Room 1520

Where to begin with this winter wedding celebration? Anna and Ryan are some of the coolest people. Each of them have their own fun and cool personality, which makes them both a joy to be around. Another neat thing was how laid back they were about their wedding! Anna totally let me have creative control of the flowers, with only one request - that her bouquet have a large, gold succulent in it. Done and done! Each of their friends played a huge part of their day too, one even made over 20 mini naked cakes. These were for each of the tables, we decorated them with fresh florals too!

I'm slowly figuring out that the neutral palette of white and green is pretty much my favorite. I love the simplicity of it and how clean it looks, with everything! Since their wedding took place in November, we had a lot of wintry greens, berries and textures. My favorite of the flowers we used are the anemones, such show stoppers on their own. Everything about this day glowed, I'm so happy with how everything worked out. :)

A & R's wedding was also featured on Style Me Pretty, which we are all so grateful for. Thank you to SMP for the beautiful feature!

Botanical and Organic Inspired Celebration at The Kitchen, Chicago, with Peach, Pink, Cream and Burgundy Wedding Flowers

This botanical and organic inspired wedding was another favorite from last fall. Christina and Howard were one of the sweetest couples and had such a unique and special vision for their wedding day. What a joy to work with couples like them!

Their ceremony took place at Bond Chapel, on the University of Chicago's campus, with their reception following at The Kitchen Chicago. At the time, The Kitchen was a brand new restaurant and we were the first wedding they hosted. :)

Everything about their celebration was carefully planned and thought through, including their flowers. I loved using local Midwestern dahlias, garden roses, a mix of foliages and much more to create their fall, botanical look.

Christina and Howard's wedding day was featured on Style Me Pretty and Carats and Cake, too! On top of that, their celebration was chosen as a part of Style Me Pretty's March Madness competion and was crowned "Best Modern Wedding of All Time" by Style Me Pretty. Such an honor!!

Starved Rock, Waterfall and Adventure Wedding Elopement Flowers

This elopement session gives me chills. The majestic background of Starved Rock is something that I can't even imagine. And to elope there? How dreamy! I wasn't able to attend this shoot with the rest of the group, but these pictures are so incredible that I had to share. 

This bouquet still remains to be one of my favorites because of the rich, moody colors I decided to use. The plum foliage was killer this time of the year, and those caramel roses were something else! I was on a clematis kick when this shoot was taking place, so of course a few delicate clematis were thrown in. :)
