Real Chicago Wedding ~ Deep Shades Purples at Room 1520

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

We had the pleasure of working with Beth Bernstein from SQN Events , Steve Koo Photography and J&L Catering a few weeks back at the popular Room 1520 for Katie and Rob’s purple wedding.  This couple wanted a lot of deep purples for their wedding and after seeing Katie’s wedding dress I knew she was the perfect candidate for a fun purple bouquet.

Katie carried an all over purple bridal bouquet of stock, vanda orchids, sweetpeas and one of our favorite varieties of purple roses.

Her bridesmaids carried white peonies bouquets with a little bit of dusty miller and Katie even gave each bridesmaid a broach with their initials as an accent to the bouquet handles.

For the ceremony we created a suspended structure of manzanita branches, white phalaenopsis orchids, green hanging amaranthus along with glass bubbles with lights and purple orchid blooms.

We created monochromatic arrangements of purple hydrangeas, purple orchids and purple carnations in white glass vases for the dinner table arrangements along with hot pink uplighting throughout the space.



Katie and Rob thank you for letting us be part of your wedding day. Thank you to Steve Koo Photography for sharing these amazing pictures and for SQN Events for letting us be part of this amazing team of vendors.
