The romance of this spring inspired wedding design is filled with so much beauty. Captured by one of our favorite Chicago photographers, Nicole Jansma Photography, every detail is just as inspiring as it is gorgeous. Members of the vendor team shared their insights behind their own pieces of the design perfectly, so we thought we would share their own words describing this look:
From the Planner, Sarah Rhodes-Boyce: For this shoot, spring was on the mind. I envisioned a beautiful young woman riding her bike with a rattan basket up front filled with fresh spring blooms tied in a sweet sky-blue gingham ribbon. From there a color palette was born: light gray, soft blues and pinks, crisp linen-y whites and pure green. I wanted the shoot to be simple, sweet and young, surrounded by lush florals and old architecture. Despite the fact that it was an overcast, chilly Chicago winter day, The Armour House provided us with the most beautiful backdrop for the shoot and made us feel like we had been transported to an early, crisp Paris spring!
From the Florist, Jackson Floral Design: Fresh, just picked from the garden, spring florals in classic white and a touch of blush set the tone for the bridal bouquet and table arrangement. My vision was to add romance to the look with a full, organic styled bouquet and a statement centerpiece filled with big blooms and lush greenery. My favorite touch as a designer is to add long, trailing ribbons to the bouquet. They add a soft, ethereal element that I just can’t get enough of!
From the Photographer, Nicole Jansma Photography: Sometimes I feel like I get the easy part of the gig :) If you surround yourself by talented vendors who hand you something gorgeous to photograph, in the most dreamy of settings, you really don’t have to work too hard to make magic happen! For this shoot, I wanted to show off the incredible architecture of The Armour House and the lovely, springy florals. My style of shooting is very soft, quiet, and organic, so it was fun to blend that with something more bold and symmetrical like the backdrops we were given at this venue.
