This is a wedding I worked on last summer with the fabulous Jesse Deckard at Botanicals, a branch of HM Designs and the charming Lauren Carter of Lola Event Productions. The bride is an architect so she had wonderful style and a great eye for color and design. The color palette was an unusual but stunning combination of navy and baby blues, rust orange, vibrant citron/chartreuse, and rich burgundy - along with polished wood.
The bride also wanted some 'green' elements to the reception - hence the potted plants on the guest tables. All of those vividly colored coleus plants were donated after the event to be planted.
Every single table had a custom designed manzanita branch 'chandelier' suspended above it, creating a wonderful and dazzling ambiance throughout the Great Hall of Cafe Brauer in Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo.
These wedding pictures were all taken by my friend Erica Baracca. Check out her gorgeous pictures at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/littlepretty
