A little stormy weather didn't dampen anyone's spirits at this gorgeous wedding in St. Charles, IL. Tracie was stunning in her open back gown by Kitty Chen. Her bouquet included Juliet roses, dahlias, astilbe, Dusty Miller, and seeded eucalyptus, complemented perfectly by the bridesmaids' clusters of pink hydrangeas. After a wonderful ceremony at the Baker Memorial chapel, there were photos in the rose garden of the Baker Hotel and a fantastic reception in the ballroom, complete with illuminated dance floor. The table decor featured vintage lanterns adorned with brightly colored blooms. And, everyone had a blast! This couple's memorable day ws featured on Syle Me Pretty, and you can see more of images at Kristin La Voie Photography. Tracie and Daniel, you were a delight to work with, and we wish you all the happiness in the world.

Brittany and Colin became engaged in San Francisco, tied the knot at Our Lady of the Wayside Church in Arlington Heights, and celebrated their reception with family and friends at the beautiful Hilton DoubleTree Esplanade Lakes in Downers Grove. We loved this couple's scenic venues, tasteful decorations, and fantastic wedding party. Brittany is a teacher, which may explain why she was so patient with us. Her Demetrios gown was gorgeous, and her floral selections were, too. This May wedding overflowed with happiness and beauty. Thank you Gerber and Scarpelli for sharing these wonderful photos. And, congratulations Brittany and Colin. Your wedding was a joy!

This wonderful Chicago wedding began with a romantic proposal on the Lakshore Trail just outside the Shedd Aquarium, followed by a surprise dinner party with family and friends at Highline in River North. So, it's no wonder that Caren and Leo's actual wedding day was just as romantic, memorable, and meticulously planned. They exchanged vows at the inspiring Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii on Lexington, with shimmering candles lining the aisle. Caren wore a gorgeous Carolina Herrera gown and carried an elegant white cascade bouquet. Then, they hosted an amazing reception at the JW Marriott on Adams. What a venue! Everything was picture perfect, including the cake and other delcious treats! The happy couple met as students at the University of Illinois, moved back to the Chicago area after graduation, and just seemed to gravitate toward the city. Their wedding was a celebration of their love with all the style and flair that Chicago has to offer. Thank you Caren and Leo for letting us be a part of your incredible day. See more at Gerber and Scarpelli.

When it comes to wedddings, are you a traditionalist, a romanticist, or perhaps a modernist? Inspired by fashion icon Vera Wang, these three styles can help any bride select the best bouquets and reception decor for her individual taste and personality. FTD Fresh explores all three in a series of recent blog posts featuring bouquets by Phillip's from the Vera Wang Wedding Flowers Collection. For the traditionalist, we created a simple compact bouquet of luscious white and blush roses. For the romanticist, our designers crafted a more natural handheld cluster of miniature white and lavender calla lilies. And, for the modernist, we selected a contemporary cascade design featuring purple phalaenopsis and cymbidium orchids with dramatic tropical foliage. Thank you FTD for sharing some of our work on your wonderful floral blog! See more inspiring Vera Wang bouquets to help find your style at Vera Wang Wedding Flowers.

Amanda and Al tied the knot at the beautiful St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Naperville, with its dramatic, sunlit sanctuary. Breathtaking! Their reception at Oak Brook Hills Resort was really beautiful, too. The florals were white with pale amber and soft yellow accents. Featured blooms included peonies, garden roses, spray roses, hydrangea, and stock, with alternating high and low centerpieces, crystal garlands, and lots of romantic votives at the reception. There were tons of great outdoor photos, too. It was a truly wonderful day filled with love, laughter, good friends, and happy memories. See more at Avant-Garde Photography. Congratulations Amanda and Al. Your wedding day was spectacular.
