      Pretty in Pink      It's a myth that pink is a color that's only appropriate for Spring months.  Elegant dark pink hues, and soft blushes can be used to set a romantic or modern mood in any season.  In fact here is a throwback to an event we did for a holiday party where we paired different shades of pink with deep wine shades and greens to set a whimsical and organic scene without being too literal.

      Christa and Dave's Fun Family Affair at  Carnivale Chicago      We had the pleasure of creating the decor for Christa and Dave's big day this past September.   The weather was gloomy but that didn't put a damper on this fun intimate event.  The bride is one of the most chill people you'll ever meet and wanted a ceremony and reception to match her laid back disposition ... we achieved this with lots of warm glow candles, beautiful rich purple tones and subdued white centerpieces that would not clash with the vibrant atmosphere of the reception venue.  The happy ( and gorgeous) couple got to enjoy their big day with an intimate group, in an intimate setting with a big city as their backdrop!  Photo credit goes to Jamie Vester Photography and Design

Christa and Dave's Fun Family Affair at Carnivale Chicago

      Coral and Pink Bliss Wedding at  Winnetka Community House    What do you do on a cold November day to stay warm?  You remember the beautiful days of summer.  Happy dreaming with this post that's WAY overdue.  I can't think of a better color scheme to capture a perfect summer wedding than coral, pink and peach.  The background was a Winnetka garden, a gathering of friends and family, a stunning bride and dapper groom, flowers galore,  all weaving together into a perfect event.  Among other personal touches,  the bride wanted to honor her grandmother with her favorite flowers, peonies, and we were happy to oblige.  We caught the perfect seasonal window for coral peonies, mixed with rich pink peopnies, vendela roses, spray roses in all shades, deep pink ranunculus, baby succulents, dhalias and coral berries.  Words can't really capture the beauty of these colors, but the great photos captured by  http://www.njeribishota.com/  can ... We enjoyed putting together these blooms, and can't stop swooning over these gorgeous pics!
