One year ago today, we produced two beautiful weddings for two beautiful couples. And funny enough, Rachel & Taylor, pictured in this first photo, were at our wedding that we produced at the @fschicago last night! It’s a small world! And it keeps getting smaller, one Life In Bloom couple at a time! Happy anniversary to Kristina & Kevin, to Rachel and Taylor, and last but certainly not least to Dan & Allie our FIRST ever Life In Bloom couple!
The amount of items that our team designed today is unbelievable! We challenged ourselves to pack more design into Friday versus Thursday this week for ultimate freshness. And while it was a long day of design, it will pay off BIG tomorrow with some seriously gorgeous blooms looking fresh as ever! Speaking of BIG, just wait until you see our massive ceremony arrangements coming to the @fschicago. Follow along on our Instastory for a behind the scenes look at our two weddings. Team-1 will be at @cbgweddings with @thecreativeplanners and @olivialeigh while Team-2 is at the @fourseasons with @blisschicago and @kylejohnphoto!
We have gotten a few questions recently regarding whether or not we travel out of state (or country) to produce weddings. We’re happy to report that we do! In fact we just booked a super fun wedding in South Bend, Indiana! We absolutely LOVE traveling for weddings as it gives us an opportunity to design in a new and unique venue that we have likely never worked at before! So whether you’re getting married in Indiana, Colorado, California, New York, or even Italy, give us a call! :-) Photo: @lunademarephoto
Interesting fact about us: As a husband & wife owned company, we spend a LOT of time together and we work very closely with each other. That being said, 98% of the time we get along quite well and are usually on the same page about design ideas, branding efforts, systemization of production procedures, etc... But apparently choosing furniture/decor for our OWN home is where we draw the line. We went to 4 different stores and looked at over 100 rug options for our living room today and couldn’t agree on one. The same was true for choosing new couch pillows... It was a long day.
Today’s weather in Chicago feels an awful lot like it did on September 22, 2018. With a tented wedding, the weather plays such a crucial role in determining how the day will play out. If it rains, it presents the challenge of not brining mud into the tent during set-up and being careful not to let things get wet. If it’s super hot, you have to worry about flowers wilting. With this wedding, we prepared for both cases and were rewarded with a cool fall day without a cloud in sight! Orchids exploded throughout the tent and hydrangea thrived! And @erickelley was there to capture it in all of its beauty! Planning and Design: @blisschicago @theblissbeau
