Blumen Garden, Sycamore // Marry Me in the Garden Styled Wedding
Earthy, Vintage with a hint of glam. And so began the search for a venue. Something off the beaten Chicago wedding path with nooks and crannies that would provide plenty of opportunities to be creative. Blumen Gardens was just that place. Built in 1829 and currently home to a husband and wife team that have renovated and reinvigorated the space over the last 25 years to support their retail garden space, landscaping business and event venue. Earthy and vintage.
Now for the hint of glam…
Sticking with an incredible fall color palette of navy, gold, cream and burgundy, our creative team got to work on identifying details and designs that would inspire future couples. Our love for all things hand crafted, contrasting textures, warm colors and greenery stimulated our vision and ultimately lead us to all of our talented vendors.
Our bride adorn in a uniquely designed open back gown with perfect floral details to fit a fall garden scene was complemented by a pop of coral lipstick, shimmering rose gold glow, a romantically braided up-do, hand designed shaved diamond earring and an estate ring designed with a green amethyst stone and gold to stretch what can be consider as a wedding ring. The details of the bride’s look were to convey an earthy and effortless beauty by highlighting all her distinctive features.
Our groom styled in a navy suit, handmade burgundy leather suspenders and a floral inspired bow tie and pocket square with a mood ring wedding band, was the perfect match for our bride. The earthy, vintage touches were threaded throughout the wardrobe, hand water painted stationary, stunning table design and venue.
The florals selected not only fully supported our color palette but also added meaning to the design. Ginger and orchids are a symbol of strength, love and beauty, while the amaranthus is considered a symbol of immortality as its Greek name means “unfading”.
Let their love be strong, beautiful and unfading. Marry me in the Garden.
