Glamorous Wedding at the Historic Palmer House

A’s favorite historic hotel in Chicago, The Palmer House,  was the backdrop to this elegant wedding last year.  The bride wanted to use ivory roses exclusively throughout the wedding, with gold accents to compliment the gilding throughout the Empire Room.  A. and P. sprayed fiddle head ferns gold to add a bit of flair, wrapped gold wire around cylinder vases for sparkle, and used gold curly willow for accents on the tall pieces.

Additionally, the bride wanted to incorporate brooches into her bouquet a first for Pockets Filled With Posies but certainly not last!

For the 2 very special flower girls, we created “wands” just like fairy princesses using roses, hydrangea and hypericum berries.
