Navy and Gold Country Club Wedding

You can tell from these photos that Emily and Matt are really terrific, and their wedding was definitely terrific, too!  From the beautiful ceremony at St. Bede the Venerable in Chicago to the gorgeous reception at Palos Country Club, everything was amazing.  We loved the navy and gold color scheme that Emily selected, splashes of other colors for variety in the bouquets, her diamond earrings from Matt, and all the personal touches throughout the day.  The bridal party was a blast, and the reception was so elegant with white blossoms and gold accents everywhere.  See it all at Nicole Defilippis Photography. Thank you Emily and Matt for letting us play a small part.  We wish you an eternity of love and laughter together.

Chicago Style Wedding at Drake Oak Brook

18. December 2017 20:07 by Phillip's Flowers | 0 Comments

Seana and Mike met through friends at a Halloween party in Chicago of all places.  "We got to talking and really hit it off," remembered Seana.  Later that night, Mike helped Seana hail a cab, asked for her phone number, then called her the very next day.  "We would go on one date a week, and eventually that turned into two dates," said Seana, "then we were doing everything together."  "We would find ourselves walking around Chicago with no plan at all and finding fun in everything we did."  Their Chicago romance led to a gorgeous outdoor garden wedding and stunning indoor reception at the classic Drake Oak Brook Hotel.  Decorations included lush green and white hydrangeas, pink Tiffany roses, stock, triccilium, seeded eucalyptus, and clusters of romantic votive candles.  Guests enjoyed great food, terriffic music from the Matt Stedman Band and Ring of Music Orchestra, and the Drake's unique 3D LED dance floor.  Mike surprised everyone, including Seana, with a private fireworks display, and the couple capped off the evening with a sparkler send off to celebrate their love.  It was truly a magical day.  See more at Chicago Style Weddings.  Congratulaions Seana and Mike, your wedding was fantastic.

Melanie and Jamie tied the knot at the First Presbyterian Church of Wilmette, then celebrated with a fabulous reception at the historic Michigan Shores Club, designed by architect Daniel Burnham, on the shores of sparkling Lake Michigan.  We loved this sweet couple, their classic colors, the lush floral designs, and especially the shimmering candlelight accents.  And, with Don Cagen Music, everyone had a blast.  Other pros behind the scenes included Bella Bleu Bridal, Macy's Tuxedo, Clarkson Jewelers, and Jon Kailey Salon.  See it all at Gerber + Scarpelli.  Congratulations Melanie and Jamie.  We wish you a lifetime of love.

Karen and Mikey exchanged their vows on May 6 at St Rita of Cascia Shrine Chapel in Chicago, where Mikey had attended high school.  Their love story began more than seven years earlier, and you can just tell they have truly become best friends for life.  Their dinner reception with family and friends at the Hyatt Lodge in Oak Brook was filled with love, laughter, great food, gorgeous views, and rockin' tunes by DJ D Jones.  Everyone had a blast.  It was such a joy to share in this couple's incredible day.  Thank you Eva Ho Photography for posting these great images.  Be sure to check out the the awesome video trailer from True Shot Studios below.

North Suburban Chicago Wedding

Featured on Chicago Splash, Elizabeth and Ethan's May wedding was simply incredible.  From the beautiful ceremony at Saints Peter & Paul Greek Orthodox Church in Glenview to the amazing reception at Sunset Ridge Country Club in Northfield, everything was flawless. Elizabeth is a fine-art appraiser.  So, it's no surprise that her theme was Inspired by French and English gardens.  The white, ivory, pale blue, and lavender floral designs included a gorgeous archway adorning the church entrance, garden planter boxes filled with lush blooms, a shower of rose petals as the couple exited the church, botantical accents intertwined in the reception chandeliers, and even a huge floral wall for a photo booth.  "Our photographer created a guest book with images (from the photo both)," said Elizabeth. "We had so many that we ran out of pages."

The food was incredible, too.  There was a five-tier vanilla wedding cake with white chocolate buttercream frosting, served with vanilla ice cream and topped with chocolate and raspberry sauce, and exceptional music from both a string quartet and the Chris Sarlas Orchestra.  But, the highlight of the evening was when the bride's triplet brothers took the stage with their band, "Triple A."  Guests traded their shoes for "flip flop" sandals and danced the night away.  Did we mention the late night hot dog and beer-boiled Bratwurst bar?  How about the cinnamon and ricotta doughnut holes with hot fudge?  Everyone had so much fun!  But, the real treat for us was just getting to know this great couple.  Congratulations Elizabeth and Ethan.  We think you're incredible!
