Elegant University Club Chicago Wedding

1. February 2016 14:46 by Phillip's Flowers | 0 Comments

Kate and Kevin have known each other since childhood. So, it's no wonder their classic University Club wedding flowed with warmth, elegance, and grace. Kate was beautiful in her Alvina Valenta gown, and Kevin was so handsome in his officer's uniform. We loved the special touches this couple incorporated in their "Best Day Ever." Everything was filled with simple, understated elegance, and everyone was filled with love for this special couple. Captured by Averyhouse Photography and featured on Style Me Pretty, you can see it all at this Wedding Gallery. Congratulations Kate and Kevin. We loved working with you, and it really was the best day ever!

Kelly and Gene's Chicago wedding was upbeat, exuberant, and stylish. The ceremony at Old Saint Patrick's Church was beautiful, and the reception at River Roast was even better. Kelly selected gorgeous white calla lilies for her bridal bouquet, with complimentary bouquets of white tulips for her attendants. The clean and modern look carried over to the reception, where clusters of white tulips were combined with romantic votive candles in silver Mercury glass. Everything was picture perfect, and the guests had a blast. What a treat it was to be part of this fantastic couple's downtown celebration! See more from their talented destination photographer at Congratulations Kelly and Gene. You guys are the best!

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!
