Bathed in warm sunlight and so much love, Lindsay and Damon's country club wedding was classic yet colorful and fun. The outdoor ceremony was beautiful, and we loved the bright touches of turquoise and orange in the club's classic ballroom. Lindsay coordinated most of the plannig from Texas, but with the meticulous attention of LK Events, everything came together pefectly. From the gorgeous setting and delicious food to the live orchestra and never-ending cupcakes, everything was just wonderful. Family and friends made it all complete for this terrific couple on their awesome day. Congratulations Lindsay and Damon. Your wedding was as special as you are!

Greek Orthodox Wedding and Acquaviva Winery Reception

3. September 2015 15:01 by Phillip's Flowers | 0 Comments

Francesca and Kyle met through friends, when she was attending Elmhurst College and he was studying for his CFA exam. That night they danced until 2:00 a.m. About two years of dating, snowboarding, and skydiving later, Kyle proposed in the middle of winter on a rooftop adorned with Christmas lights. "It was freezing and perfect," said Francesca. Their engagement was filled with family, good friends, and choosing everything for their wedding, including some wonderful DIY decorations, signs, and favors hand-crafted by the bride. Their ceremony at Holiday Apostles Church was gorgeous, and the reception at Acquaviva Winery was so romantic, with alternating high and low centerpieces in antique gold vessels surrounded by shimmering candlelight. The food, wine, and entertainment were spectacular, too. According to Francesca, "Kyle and I danced the night away just like the first day we first met." See more at Chicago Style Weddings. What a terrific couple and a fantastic wedding day!

Sunny Suburban Chicago Wedding

Thank you James Ivan and Emily Louise, of Ivan & Louise photography, for sharing these wonderful images from Megan and Brian's suburban Chicago wedding. The ceremony at St. Stephen's in Tinley Park was gorgeous, and the reception at the Hilton Oak Brook Hills Resort provided a beautiful backdrop for so many memorable photos. We loved designing Megan's hand-tied bouquet of lush white peonies. It was almost as lovely as she is! And, the other bouquets and floral accents in soft pinks, peaches, and whites complemented everything just perfectly. Brian was charming, the wedding party was awesome, and the weather couldn't have been better. See more at the Ivan & Louise blog. It was a dream come true, fairy tale wedding, and we know everyone truly wishes Megan and Brian a lifetime of happily ever after!

DuPage Wedding and Hyatt Lodge Reception

10. July 2015 14:22 by Phillip's Flowers | 0 Comments

It was so much fun being a part of Ashley and Steven's suburban wedding. And, since Ashley works with the DuPage Convention and Visitors' Bureau, it's no surprise she picked some of our favorite DuPage settings for her photos and reception, including the Elmhurst Historical Museum mansion, Ashley's alma mater, Elmhurst College, and the scenic Hyatt Lodge on McDonald's Campus. It was a nice suprise, however, that she shared her experience with other brides to be on her Ashley's Angle blog. "I brought in pictures of things I liked, and Phillip’s totally ran with it. Our designer seemed to understand exactly what I wanted even when I couldn’t articulate it." The floral designs and reception decorations featured peonies, ranunculi, roses, and other lush garden flowers, with Mercury Glass vessels, shimmering votives, and romantic scattered rose petals. Check out the beautiful images below from Michael Paul Photogaphy. What a memorable day and truly sweet couple! Congratulations Ashley and Steven. We know your life together will be filled with love and happiness.

Check out these gorgeous images by Angel Eye Photography of Dani and Matt's suburban wedding. The ceremony at Sacred Heart in Lombard was lovely, the reception at Oak Brook Hills stunning, and the children involved were so photogenic! Christine and Ann from Tying The Knot made sure everything went smoothly for this wonderful couple's day. From the scenic setting and breathtaking decorations by Phillip's to the scrumptuous red velvet cake, everything was spectacular. "Don Phillip brought our vision for the perfect floral arrangements to life with his talented artistry. The ambiance he created in the room was breathtaking."
