Blush, Pale Pinks and lots of Chicago Romance at the Drake Hotel in Chicago

We just moved into a new(much bigger space) and our recent client Sarah was a special one to all of us at Exquisite Designs…. This is the first of many events that we will be producing from our new studio in the west loop. Sarah came to us last year …. she wanted lots of blush, pale pinks and a little bit of romance in her flowers. She wanted a garden feel to her arrangements with accents of gold, candlelight, peonies, ranunculus, hydrangeas and roses.  She picked the perfect time of the year for her flower choices, the day was absolutely spectacular.

Not only did the weather cooperated, but we also had the pleasure of working with a great cast of vendors such as Tiffany from Soiree Chicago, Okyne Media, Bellissima Photography and The Drake Hotel.

Sarah’s bouquet was a stunner. Truly one of our favorite bouquets at Exq Designs with a textural mix of white and blush peonies (you got it, it had peonies in it), white sweetpeas, white calla lilies, dusty miller and blush ranunculus. I always know that if it’s a hard to let go bouquet, we’ve done our job. This was definitely one of those.
