Christmas in Chicago— get your cocoa ready for this winter wedding, complete with textured branches, glistening lights, and warm hues, perfectly emulating a mix of rustic glam & woodsy elegance.

With expert styling by Jasmine Galleria’s floral & décor department and a venue that perfectly lends itself to a beautiful winter ambiance, this dreamy winter wedding affair is sure to get you into the good ol’ holiday spirit.
Our creative & talented florist, Michelle reflects on the day & couple:
“Eileen’s wedding was a magical end to our wedding season! Every aspect was pure winter elegance; especially her bridal bouquet! Eileen carried a white composite rose bouquet created from hundreds of white rose petals. The contemporary “bouquet” mimicked a full size rose opening right before your eyes. It was absolutely stunning! Equally as stunning in their simplicity were the Picasso mini calla bouquets carried by her bridesmaids. The deep purple in the center surrounded by the white outer edge was the perfect touch to enhance the romantic winter look!
The jaw dropper was, however, the fully decorated open wabranches to complete the woodland winter theme! Mixed table adornments included 24” glass cylinder vases filled with birch branches and decorated with hanging candles. The remaining tables had cylinder trios topped with floating candles, and each table was sprinkled with snowflakes. The main focal points however, were the eight ceiling to floor wooden beams decorated with grape vine and string lights! The room was BUSTLING! Everyone was busy! After we had finished, the room had transformed! The soft lighting of the string lights and candles perfectly accented the wood grain of the room surrounding them. It was one of our most stunning winter weddings. Congratulations you two!!”
Congrats Eileen & Reid- We wish you two a lifetime of love & happiness!
