INSPIRED BY: Kate Moss' Boho Flower Girls

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We are still swooning over the images of Kate Moss' romantic bohemian English countryside nuptials.  When a wedding is that beautiful and perfectly executed it's hard to get it out of your head!  We were recently reminded of Kate's entourage of impeccably styled boho flower girls when we opened the most recent email from BHLDN announcing their new Flower Girl dresses.   It is hard to go wrong when selecting a pint-size outfit for your flower girls since they tend to steal to the show at the ceremony (right up until the bride appears of course!), but we suggest going with the timeless ease of a bohemian flowing dress in shades of off white or ivory accessorized by a floral halo crown of course!  [/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/1"][vc_single_image image="5923" border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" img_size="full"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Inspiration for Waldorf Astoria Planners Dinner

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]At the end of February , our own Jesse Deckard created all the design for the Belle Vie Bridal Couture show hosted at the Waldorf Astoria in downtown Chicago.  Along with a beautiful fashion show for brides to be, the event included a decadent private dinner for some of the top names in the wedding industry.  Here is Jesse's inspiration behind the impressive dinner tablescape and next week we will share the gorgeous images from this fabulous dinner.

When I found this gorgeous image online, I knew I must one day turn it into an event. The play of the sharp black and white with the crisp fresh green in such precise lines inspired my 32 foot long feasting table for a luxury dinner for some of the cities most elite. Translating the impressive molded black door, a solid linen of sparkling sequins was created creating base of this creation. Then bold black and white striped cushions and napkins were used at each place setting to mimic the charming canopy. Finally and most importantly, solid manicured boxwood hedges ran down the center of this feasting table with glorious bursts of areca palm fronds creating a solid profusion of verdant green against the very stylish black and white.

Real Wedding: Kristen & Charlie

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Being in this business, we get the true honor of getting to work with gorgeous decor, 5-star cuisine, dreamy details and, most importantly, we get to meet so many amazing people. And wow... does this wedding capture all of these honors and so much more. Kristen and Charlie look straight out of Hollywood... Kristen's a stunning, tall blonde with the most infectious smile and impeccable style. Charlie is dapper and dashing and loves Kristen (and golf!) in the ways that you see in the movies. But on top of it all, they are a thoughtful, incredibly fun couple who wanted their wedding weekend to celebrate their families coming together in a chic and personal manor. Kristen and Charlie were married at Kenilworth Union Church - a church that was a big part of both of their childhood's, followed by drinks, feasting and a wild dance party at the {gorgeous!} Peninsula Hotel. The inspiration for the day was elegant but cozy and the palette of ivory, cream and gold complemented the perfect fall day. To celebrate Charlie's love of golf, we (Jesse Deckard and the Event Creative team) transformed the cocktail party in to a smart little golf party - with a custom mini-golf set up and personalized golf balls, golf-flag drink stirrers and green and white custom fabrics for the pillows. The playful golf details were left behind as guests entered the ballroom for dinner {to the incredibly talented and lively tunes from Colby Bessera!} where white orchids draped down long feasting tables, thoughtful details by Cheree Berry Paper graced the tables and thousands of candles flickered around the room. After a surf and turf dinner, guests twirled on the dance floor, enjoyed the terrace at the Peninsula (where we arranged for a cigar bar in light of Kristen's dad's love for them!) and even enjoyed a surprise performance from the groom's brother. It was a night of beauty and love and we were honored to be a part of it all!
