Real Wedding Teaser - Inspiration Board

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

One of our favorite clients of all time was married this past fall.

The wedding ceremony took place at the super-charming St. Chrysostom’s church, nestled on a residential street in the Gold Coast.  And the reception?  Bliss fave - Chicago History Museum.

JEH had a personal style meant for us.  Layers of J. Crew and accents of Kate Spade – modern updates of classic styles.  When she said she was toying with a color palette of Navy, Fuchsia, Kelly Green and Glittery Gold we thought we would die!

We would be honoured to help bring THAT vision to life!

As a little teaser, we would like to share the inspiration board we created in the early stages of our planning process.  This visual, conceptual tool was used as inspiration for everything from attire to stationary to florals and linens.

 

Stay tuned to see how the inspiration board came to life this past October!

It's Peony Season!!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We look forward to the short springtime peony season every year like it is Christmas!!  We just love seeing those beautiful shades of pink and fuschia peonies pop up at the flower mart (not to mention the luxe look of white peonies!).   These fluffy flowers add such a beautiful touch to a bridal bouquet or a feminine addition to a centerpiece.  Here are few images of peonies that are inspiring us right now - including a little snapshot of the massive peony bouquet we have brightening up the Bliss Weddings Studio currently!

Real Wedding: Charlotte & William

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="11346" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][vc_column_text]

Last fall, Renny and Kara pulled off an amazing autumn engagement party at the Botanical Garden’s Pullman Barn. Their idea was to showcase a couple going through wedding related celebrations that every couple encounters  throughout their engagement. They named their faux couple William and Charlotte, and created an amazing celebration thrown my their "best friend" in their honor. The barn was transformed into a cozy, classic, with touches of preppy, presentation that called for a night of great fun with friends and family alike. The charming barn was detailed in coral and navy with plenty of eye-catching accents of gold. The outside is where the fun really began, with bobbing for bling in bubbly, golden apple croquet, customized mad libs about William and Charlotte and a muddling bar. The night ended around a romantic, cozy fire pit with custom pillows and throws for the guest to snuggle up with and take part in making s’mores while sipping their night caps.  Can’t wait to see what’s next for William and Charlotte’s engagement!

The new Pullman Barn at Chicago's Botanical Garden was the perfect location for this couple!

Golden foliage adorned the ceiling of the barn as well as the table.

Customizable place mats where a hidden gem under guests plates.

Take a Sneak Peak!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We recently had a photo shoot for our new ad that will be out soon! With all the changes happening at Bliss we needed to throw Katie Kozlowski, our newest senior weddings consultant, into the mix and show everyone what we are all about! Besides, who doesn't love an afternoon of shoes, glitter, cake and champagne? We can't thank Cindy, from Fandl Photography, enough for spending the day with us photographing all our silly antics and costume changes! The delicious pink ombre cake was done by our friends at Alliance Bakery and Cafe, and was delightful until the very last piece (what swimsuit season?)! And our very own, Kara Superfine, used her fabulous floral background to create the gorgeous hot pink bouquet that we are still dying over!

Here's a sneak peak of what will be published soon in bridal magazines galore. We hope you enjoy!
