Spring Wedding Bouquets with Peonies and Sweet Pea

Spring Wedding Bouquets with Peonies and Sweet Pea

I know that we all felt spring a little closer yesterday with the warm up of the temperature. This made me think of spring weddings! I love these bridesmaids bouquets from a spring wedding. The flower color complements the bridesmaids light green dresses so well. The florals are a mix of sweat pea and light pink peonies which are so readily available in the spring months for bouquets!

Pantone Color of the Year announced for 2013

Pantone Color of the Year announced for 2013

We were tickled, um, GREEN, when Pantone announced their color of 2013 as Emerald Green. I love the color green and am so excited to see this appear in Chicago weddings and all things fashion, weddings, beauty and home. So today I pay homage to Emerald Green with some great finds! 

Bouquet Wednesday, Calla Lillies

Bouquet Wednesday, Calla Lillies

LOVING Calla Lilly bouquets lately! Calla lilies represent elegance, charm, beauty and grace and are perfect for a bride to carry on her wedding day. Today we are featuring the gorgeous calla bouquet of a wedding we did in the winter. We accented the bouquet with lilly grass to give it some height and structure.

Bouquet Wednesday, Pink Peony Bouquets

Bouquet Wednesday, Pink Peony Bouquets

It's Wednesday and I am bringing you a bouquet to enjoy today on Bouquet Wednesday! Today we see big full bouquets of  pink peonies. Peonies are available in the springtime and early summer and are my FAVORITE flower! I LOVE the look of the pink with the bridesmaids dresses. Gorgeous and dreamy and smell so wonderful! Perfect for yourself or your bridesmaids if you are getting married in May or June when they are in season. 

Spring Has Arrived in Chicago

Spring Has Arrived in Chicago

Happy Spring! Yesterday was the first day of Spring in Chicago (although it was a little chilly and rainy) and I for one am very much ready for the longer days and the popping of the green leaves, crocuses and daffodils. And Spring means the return of tulips and peonies to weddings. 

In honor of Spring, enjoy some spring themed wedding pictures!
