All photography by Studio Finch.    

First and foremost, thanks to the very talented Tim Tab Studios for the gorgeous photos from Paige and Robert’s fall wedding at the Racquet Club of Chicago.  We loved working on this fall wedding for so many reasons: a super sweet couple, loose and gardeny floral design (our favorite style), and we got to work in a […]

POSTED IN: Summer wedding

Continuing our recap of last year by season, below are some highlights we captured of our wedding work last summer.  Summer ushers in some of my favorite local blooms such as dahlias, coxcomb, and cosmos.  Some of my favorites from the neighboring seasons are also available, such as peonies from spring and berried branches from […]

POSTED IN: Spring Wedding

In this blustery winter weather, it’s refreshing to see these photos from last spring!  Spring wedding flowers offer up delightful blooms such as peonies, ranunculus, anemones, tulips, narcissus…  And I love flowering branches of all types: lilac, forsythia, cherry blossoms, crabapple, quince, and snowball viburnum, to name a few.  Admittedly, a couple of these weddings […]

2013 was an amazing year at Pollen!  We worked on some truly lovely weddings, and got to work mostly in our signature style of loose and gardeny design (with a touch of whimsy).  I just love working in a style that “goes” without being too matchy-matchy. In the hustle to get our work out the […]

After some instruction and demonstration (and mimosas and bloody marys), the students designed their own arrangements.  I […]

I absolutely loved Colleen’s description of the look she was going for with her wedding flowers: refined roadside.  Love, love, loved it.  AKA: English garden gone wild.  Thank you to Dawn E. Roscoe Photography for the beautiful photos! The bridal bouquet featured some of my very favorite blooms of spring.  Flowering dogwood in a bridal […]
