Katelyn & Sean’s Wedding Flowers

Katelyn and Sean’s wedding flowers colors included a palette of ivory, blush, and soft pinks. They wished to describe their wedding as Parisan with a touch of chic yet vintage flare. The bride’s hand tied bouquet  included fully bloomed roses, peonies, and lemon leaf. A thin layer of ivory lace ribbon surrounded the stems for an elegant handle.

Danielle, from Simply Perfect by Melissa, planned an elegant affair for this couple with every detail in place. Gerber + Scarpelli Photography took the couple and their bridal party on a tour of the city, from skyscrapers to bridges, gardens to historic corners. We simply adore watching this lovely bride and her bouquet spread sunshine through Chicago.
