Fleur (on Logan Square Blvd in Chicago) arrangements are simply decadent! A few weeks ago, I got to go behind the scenes of a styled bridal photo shoot. Not only that, but, I had the pleasure of being a part of the session! During our break, I snapped a few shots of the bouquets Kelly, at Fleur, created. The coral peonies were breathtaking! Aren’t they just perfect? Makes me want to have another wedding…

So, for the first time in my life, I was on the other side of the camera, watching Sara Gray + staff of MarryThis! make magic happen as I played the role of a bridesmaid. It was also the first time I got to see the Aérée Loft space in the West Loop. The location is really gorgeous — open, bright, raw, and ready to be transformed into anything.

I can’t wait to see the final product on Elizabeth Anne Designs. I’m sure it’ll be stunning. (update: here’s the shoot!. The third photo is of me + the couple is my girlfriend, Alexia + her husband to be, Nick.)

p.s. A big thank you to Kelly for letting me keep the bouquet! It stayed alive for quite some time and kept my grandma smiling for days.
