The Growing Tree

As each year goes by the trees grow, their branches stretch larger and taller with every year that passes. For this reason we decided to showcase how Trevor had grown through the years by hanging his photos in this Manzanita tree centerpeice. Trevor, my husbands relative, graduated from Dekalb Highschool on June, 5th. Here is a snapshot of this graduation decor.

Love this photo!!

His cakes were created by my mother in Law, she doesnt have her own business, but I am always telling her to start one! Her buttercream frosting (Shown here) is to die for. Ok I am going to stop talking about it because it makes me hungry! If you are interested in her cakes contact me here.

Here are the centerpieces created by The Petal Boutique, my very talented sister-in-law. Orange roses and curly willow were used in these arrangements.

The party was great! Simple decor and arrangements to celebrate Trevors Graduation.
Had to sneak this one in! Here is my husband assisting with the placement of the chair cushions after the rain had stopped. He is sometimes with to help with local events and this time I caught him on camera!!
Congratulations Trevor!

La di Real Wedding: Dorsae and Lewis

Last November we had the opportunity to work with Dorsae and Lewis for their wedding. While living in Houston the couple needed assistance planning their wedding back home in Chicago. There was no detail missed for this elegant affair. Take a look! All photographs provided by Jai Girard Photography. The crushed velvet wedding programs were flown if from Berings, in Houston, TX

The Event floral design was created by Chicago's Daniels Discriminating Floriculture. To accent the 155 foot aisle at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, simple white rose pave balls suspended by crystals and placed on every 5th pew.

Here you see two tall cylinder vases topped with white rose pave balls with crystals raining down the outside of the vase at the halfway point down the aisle.

Love this shot from Jai Girard Photography, this is our best man holding the ring.

The Crimson color of the Bridesmaids gowns partnered with the white fur wraps was absolutely stunning!

Doesn't the flower girl look like an angel?

American Idol Finalist, and dear friend to the bride and groom, LaKisha Jones was the worship soloist at the ceremony.

Our Bride and Groom, Dorsae and Lewis exiting the Chapel with a Sparkler send off.

The Beautiful Bride

The Handsome Groom

The Brides stunning Ball gown and Cathedral length veil was designed by Priscilla of Boston.

The Reception was held at the Palmer House, Empire Ballroom. The guests were greeted at the staircase and escorted to their table.

The Empire Room was transformed into a classic winter wonderland. The Guest tables were decorated with Manzanita snow trees draped with crystals, hanging candles and a variety of white floral. Five Crystal candle sticks of varying heights surrounded the centerpieces.

The linens were a gorgeous Silver Brocade, with pearl embossed design and a satin ribbon finish.

The dance floor was a sparkling silver, and the Bride and Groom's monogram was projected in the center as guests arrived. The Chameleon chairs were covered with a white cowl back and crystal broach, all provided by Classic Party Rental.

Each place setting featured silver burst chargers (Classic Party Rental), silver lamoure napkins and a stunning tri-fold menu book

The Bride and Groom sat at a sweetheart table decorated with rose pave balls and candlelight. The collage of the bride and grooms engagement photographs provided by Exceed Photo, was displayed behind the sweetheart table.

The Brides bouquet was made to reflect her mothers bridal bouquet. It was made with White roses and dripped with crystals.

The cake was beautiful on the outside and the inside. This 7 tier cake from Take the cake featured these delicious flavors:coconut cake with coconut butter cream and pineapple filling, strawberry cake with strawberry cream filling, Italian cream cake with cream cheese filling and chocolate fudge cake with two layers of salted caramel butter cream and one layer of creme brulee. Delicious!

This included Canadian cold water lobster tail with crab cake stuffing, lemon butter, 6oz prime aged Filet Mignon with a cognac cream reduction, buttermilk mashed potatoes and asparagus and red pepper.

Dorsae and Lewis danced their first dance to Nat King Cole's "Unforgettable", performed by musician Marcus Gentry and the Grammy winning gospel singer Yolanda Adams.

Later in the evening Dorsae did a quick dress change and surprised Lewis with a choreographed dance and dancers from Be the Groove Productions.
