Pete and Leah

Chicago, USA

Pete and Leah are both talented designers and had a very clear vision of their celebrations. This was the Chicago wedding party as Leah is American, with another to follow later in Pete’s home country, Australia.

I loved the open brief and relished the chance to select particular blooms with both his and her heritage in mind. The no fuss manner in which Leah and Pete pulled all their ideas together comes across in the gathering of stems and specimens, no huge over the top arrangements, just a simple appreciation of each element in its own right. A canopy of wild Smilax vine helped create an intimate feel in the modern space and pulled together all the elements. It looked especially beautiful at night in the candle light, with the flowers and vines casting shadows across the walls.
