We had the pleasure of working with the ladies from Michelle Durpetti Events for Ramona and Scott’s wedding last year. Their ceremony took place at the St. Basil Greek Orthodox Church and the reception took place at the Rookery in Chicago. Ramona wanted to keep things traditional for the ceremony with lots of white flowers. We created pew clusters of white casablanca lilies and orchids. For the ceremony, we created two large arrangements of lilies, white stock, white dendobrium orchids and white hydrangeas…. and her one request was that the amount of stems we used were odd numbers. I’m superstitious, so let’s just say I understood her request and happily obliged. Or, as Michelle Durpetti would say….. “it’s a frizzante thing”.
Ramona carried a hand tied bouquet of white lilies, white roses, white freesias, lilies of the valley, white agapanthus and white dendobrium orchids. Scott wore a single white calla and lilies of the valley boutonniere. During our first meeting she mentioned that she really loved flowers with a fragrance to them hence the choices of flowers we selected for her. All known for their light but lovely scents.
The bridesmaids carried colorful bouquets of pink roses, yellow callas, blue iris, orange mokara roses and seeded eucalyptus.
Just as the ceremony was full of white flowers, the reception was full of color. Ramona and Scott wanted a lot of texture and color for the reception flowers. We created low arrangements of pink sorbonne lilies, pink celosia, orange gerbers, orange unique roses, yellow chrysanthemums and little touches of italian ruscus.
Loved the four tiered wedding cake, created by Tipsycake and our cascading white casablanca lilies.
