All photography by Jeremy Lawson Photography. The Details: Early summer wedding at City Winery Chicago. Color Palette: Burgundy, ivory, lots of green, and accents of coral and blush. Flower Palette: Dahlias, garden roses, white majolika, stock, green hydrangea, and serviceberry.

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 […]

All photography by Studio Finch.    

Revisiting M&M’s late June wedding from last year puts a smile on my face!  As always, Tim Tab Studios captured the wedding beautifully. For the bride’s garden-style bouquet, coral peonies, poppies, ranunculus, and garden roses were the focal flowers in a loose yet lush style of bouquet. The wedding party’s bouquets in coral, orange, fuchsia, and […]

E & S’s beautiful wedding at Bridgeport Art Center’s Skyline loft captured spring just beautifully, with loose and gardeny floral arrangements in shades of green, dusty purple, and pink with peonies, flowering viburnum, clematis, scabiosa, olive branches, and grasses.  All photography by the very talented Kent Drake Photography.

Rachel and Jason’s wedding at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum reminded me that there are many little things, easy to overlook, that we at Pollen do to minimize the ecological impact of our clients’ weddings.  Some are more obvious, liking working with locally grown flowers whenever possible.  Others are less obvious.  Here are a couple […]

I love texture.  And unusual, non-floral elements.  So I had a blast working on Erin and Dan’s wedding at the end of November.  Erin wanted her flowers to be a little unexpected, while still soft and natural.  Her color scheme of white, browns, sage green, and navy was tastefully understated.   Incorporating herbs, fiddleheads, berries and […]
