Real Wedding: Danielle and Kris

This unique brunch wedding took place on a gorgeous day this past September in Hyde Park in Chicago. The ceremony was performed at the historic Bond Chapel on the University of Chicago campus. The stunning stained glass combined with the overgrown ivy and the dark wood pews create a warm and intimate setting.

Jesse Deckard of Botanicals, a branch of HM Designs worked with the couple to enhance this already gorgeous setting. Over sized fluffy green and blue bi-colored Dutch hydrangea was the featured flower at this event; used in large arrangements framing the altar, adorning each individual pew, in the bouquets, and later on the guest tables. The flower girls each carried a custom made peacock blue satin pouch (perfectly matching the sash on their dresses) filled with soft green rose petals to toss down the aisle. Additionally they wore fragrant stephanotis blossom crowns.

I love the unique color palette this couple chose. That deep peacock blue color is so unusual, and looked truly gorgeous in the chapel. The design went down to the smallest details, creating a charming ambiance for their special day!
