Wedding Profile: Green and White Winter Wedding at Skyline Loft

I’ve been thinking about the photo below (by Tim Tab Studios) for the past year or two.  The composition, the feeling of anticipation, the gorgeous dress… and that bouquet isn’t so bad, either, if I do say so myself. And while I generally don’t show photos where people faces are recognizable, I’ll tell you that this wedding was full of beautiful people.  And so kind, too!  You can get a more well-rounded look of the wedding on Tim Tab Studios blog, but I’m going to focus on the flowers, of course.  

The details:  February wedding at Bridgeport Art Center’s Skyline Loft in Chicago.  Color palette: White and green, with touches of blush and navy.  Flower palette: Peonies, viburnum berries, ranunculus, White Majolika spray roses, hellebores, Southern smilax.

But enough talk.  On to the photos!  The bride’s bouquet was a bit loose and gardeny with white peonies as the focal flowers and viburnum berries, camelia and Southern smilax added for depth and movement.

Even the elevator got some attention from us!  The chandelier was decorated with sprawling foliage.Flowers by Pollen. Photography by Tim Tab Studios. Skyline Loft elevator chandelier with smilax foliage garland.

For the escort card table, a loose and foliage-heavy arrangement provided a focal point.

The centerpieces served double duty at the ceremony, with the shorter centerpieces displayed on simple white pedestals down the aisle.Flowers by Pollen. Photography by Tim Tab Studios. Wedding centerpiece on pedestal for ceremony aisle decor.

During cocktail hour in the adjacent room, we transitioned the ceremony space to the dining space.  A mix of tall and short centerpieces provided variety throughout the room.  In this space, tall centerpieces draw the eye upward to the timber beams, wooden ceiling, and skylights.Flowers by Pollen.

The suspended foliage garland was all about this shot, don’t you think?  Thanks to Tim Tab Studios for capturing this moment so perfectly!
