Pink

The Bliss Studio

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]While there were plenty of sneak peeks of our new studio space in the photos from our Kiki Party, we thought it would be fun to share some proper photos of the space when it isn't in party mode! After a long search for the perfect space, we finally found this gem right around the corner from some of the best restaurants and shopping in Wicker Park/Bucktown. With a little inspiration, a few coats of paint and tearing down a couple walls this space started transforming into the Bliss Weddings & Events Studio back in early December.

Renny scoured our favorite antique stores, Jayson Home & Garden, and One Kings Lane to find the perfect furniture and accessories to compliment the color story of navy, white, kelly green, fuchsia pink, and metallic gold.

Our favorite parts of the studio include the fabulous silver and kelly green metallic palm leaf wallpaper in the powder room, the comfy chic seating area and of course- the bar cart set against fabulous metallic snakeskin wallpaper!!

Thank you to Studio ThisIs for the great pics!

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!

Kiki Kiss Mirror

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]There weren't just fabulous dancers and delicious drinks at our Kiki party, there was also the now infamous "kiki kiss mirror." As guests arrived, they were given a "kiki lip" in either bright fuchsia pink or marvelous red courtesy of the talented ladies at Reiman Condron Beauty! We then set up a mirror outside of the powder room for guests to leave their Kiki kiss as well as their signature claiming their smooch! We were inspired for the Kiki kiss mirror from our very own Kara Superfine who has guests sign their names using lipstick on the bathroom mirror at her annual holiday bash! What a fun idea for a bachelorette hotel room or even a saucy bridal shower!!

Real Wedding: Carey & Matt

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]  Take a look at the stunning Fall wedding of Carey & Matt planned by Renny on October 13th.  The Chicago Illuminating Company served as the venue for both the dramatic and modern ceremony as well as the glamorous reception that had guests celebrating well into the night!  Jeffrey & Julia Woods Photography was on hand to capture every beautiful moment from the stunning couple to all the little personal touches sprinkled throughout the event in the couple's color scheme of rich navy, bright pink, grey and white.  The vibrant colors of Fall were also in full force to set the backdrop for some breathtaking bridal party shots in the courtyard of the Illuminating Company.  Even though it may have sprinkled a little earlier in the day, the weather cleared up just in time for the emotional ceremony set under a dramatic Chuppah created by Event Creative.  Guests were whisked to the cocktail hour in the cozy bar off of the courtyard  and greeted with a pink hued signature cocktail.  Dinner was served under the 40 foot ceilings of the main dining room complete with lucite candelabras and seemingly floating white hydrangea centerpieces adorning the tables.   The beaming couple and their guests then danced the night away only stopping for quick breaks to sit in the glossy white modern victorian lounge set up bordering the dancefloor!   Congrats to Matt & Carey!
