As a wedding designer and stylist, we are impassioned by light color palettes and contemporary, nature-inspired weddings. We were beyond thrilled to collaborate with Maria Harte Photography to design a garden wedding experience for the modern couple, captured beautifully in a bright and airy, clean photography aesthetic. Our thoughtfully curated design concept showcases a luxurious garden wedding for the modern couple at one of the most beautiful natural settings, Chicago Botanic Garden. The Overlook is the perfect serene backdrop for a romantic ceremony and the English Walled Garden has an understated grandeur and lush surroundings that make for a truly unique wedding reception experience.
The upper English Walled Garden contains exquisitely set table surrounded by stone columns and lush greenery. An oversized floral statement piece from The Petal sweeps beautifully across the center of the table, and is filled with lush garden roses amongst softer color blooms and vines. Delicately placed Ivy brings a fresh look and feel to each place setting. Guests enjoy a fresh and savory meal on the modern place settings at a table covered with a textured linen with creamy ivory tones and a touch of luxurious sheen providing the perfect balance of natural style and elegance.
The ceremony aisle is lined with walnut chairs combined with wood bench seating fitting for the natural surroundings. The altar is framed by two towers of blush, rose, coral, and ivory color rose blooms and lush greenery. The groom looks sharp in a classic black bow-tie tux with a vest for a modern look. The bride looks and feels amazing in her custom fitted wedding gown with embroidered and beaded Chantilly bodice and peach ivory ombre tulle. A beautifully embellished cathedral veil is intentionally placed low over her loose and wavy hairstyle for a fresh and modern look . Her bridal look is completed with hanging floral earrings and sparkling rose gold shoes. She holds a large, unstructured and airy bouquet filled with large summer blooms and accented with the perfect trailing hand-dyed natural silk ribbon.
