From Chicago to California; Marissa and Shane have lived and traveled all over the states together. I just love how easy-going and thirsty for adventure these two are. They are absolutely PERFECT for each other, and adorable to boot. I have known Marissa for several years (she attended college and is friends with my daughter), and she always has a smile on her face. With a move back home to Chicago from California, and a busy work schedule; it was hard to find time to go over their wedding day floral vision, but we did it. On a humid summer day we met for lunch and discussed all the details for their romantic Fall wedding at the Blackstone Hotel right off Michigan Avenue. From the amazing banquet room balcony to the modern touches of red and black; this venue is nothing but gorgeous. To make it even better, we were excited to learn our friends Sarah and Ryan of Miller + Miller Photography would be capturing all the details for the day. Pretty pictures equals fun blog post for all of you!

These two wanted the presence of Fall to shine through with their floral color palette, so with navy as their base color we added pops of orange, peach, purple, fuchsia and yellow. To add some elegance; the centerpieces were draped with crystals and gold accents were used as well throughout the decor.

It was such a pleasure working with these two and I wish them many years of wedded bliss, whether it’s in Chicago or wherever life takes these two hardworking busy bees!
