AFD Real Weddings | Kim & Michael - Shedd Aquarium, Chicago IL

In the Summer of 2016, a small crew and I packed up 3 vehicles to the brim with white and lavender blooms, and headed into the city for the Shedd Aquarium, from our humble home-based studio in Lombard, for Kim & Michael's wedding. Their ceremony was like none I had ever witnessed, complete with a dolphin show! Pair that with the cocktail hour skyline view, and a private reception in the great hall, this was truly a unique event from start to finish.

For her palette, Kim and I designed a blend of lush, full, blooms in whites and lavenders. We settled on white peonies, fresh cut lavender, light purple scabiosa, gorgeous mid-purple spray roses, 'cool water' roses, white hydrangeas, Italian ruscus, and accents of grey dusty miller.

It's hard to pick a favorite part of their wedding, as the reception was centered around a caribbean reef fish tank. It's not wonder the details of the day were picked up by Artfully Wed, you can see the publication here

It was a pleasure to work with such an easy-going couple, and amazing vendors. It is definitely one of those weddings that will remain in our Hall of Fame for years to come!
