We have had a lot of new followers on here lately so we figured it would only be appropriate to introduce ourselves! We are a husband and wife owned company. Rachel Wyffels is the founder and lead designer here at Life In Bloom. She’s my best friend. She’s my wife. And she’s one of THE most talented designers I’ve ever met. Of course I may be biased... did I mention we’re married? All joking aside though, Rachel is extremely kind, thoughtful, and her work ethic is inspiring to all that have had the opportunity to work alongside her (Not just saying that for the brownie points). And then there’s me. Outside of managing the majority of our Instagram account these days, my primary role here at Life In Bloom is to facilitate all of the scheduling and organizational systems that allow our day-to-day operations to run (relatively) smoothly. Every day is different and I enjoy the challenges that each new event presents. New floral palettes, new inventory, new venues. It all keeps me on my toes. What really makes Rachel and I work so well together is our shared passion for beautiful flowers and creative approaches to event design, hence why this time of year is one of our very favorites! As we begin meeting with so many new incredible couples and start planning their 2019 weddings, we just love the creative process and can’t wait to see it all come to fruition in just a few short months!
People often ask: “Why should we enlist Life In Bloom as our floral and decor vendor for our wedding?” If we could sum up our answer in just one word, ‘CURATED’ would be top on that list. We always emphasize to our clients that their decor should extend beyond just the flowers on the tables. The details should flow together seamlessly. Linens matching chairs that match the flowers which complement the dress which coordinates with the cake, which is inspired by the architecture or the history of the venue. Seamless. Why choose us? In our humble opinion, we are exceptionally well positioned to help curate seamless moments just like these. Photo: @photos_by_raisa
Give us all of the candles! To be completely honest though, our team can attest to this, cleaning vases, cylinders, and glassware along with pulling candles and votives is certainly not one of the most glorious parts of the job... but my oh my does that heavy candlelit glow make a serious impact!

Today is going to be an exceptionally beautiful day! We have THREE teams out setting up in all corners of Chicago. Not only do we feel lucky to work at some of Chicago’s most fabulous venues, but we’re also extremely blessed to work with such amazing fellow wedding vendors! Shout out to @chichicweddings, @aliphillips and @storybook_weddingsandevents! Let’s do this! Photo: @truegracephoto
