Enchanted Forest Wedding | Photo Shoot | Chicago

DillyLily_071714_15Our lovely bride wears a long fitted blue mermaid style dress that compliments the lush earthy greens that covers her tablescape.



Our forest themed look has accents of succulents , peacock feathers, and blue mercury glass. The barked wood containers, driftwood, ferns, and moss add to the woodsy aesthetics of the photo shoot.  Instead of a traditional white dress this bride chose blue embrace the dress her mother wore almost 30 years ago for her wedding. The orchids were the first flower she fell in love with on her journey to becoming a floral designer. 


 To get married with Dilly Lily flowers, surrounded by nature would be a dream come true.

Chicago Wedding at Loft on Lake!

Ally and Ben’s Chicago wedding was filled with love, happiness and peonies! The Dilly Lily had a great time designing and delivering the urban-rustic inspired florals for this fun and elegant wedding at Loft on Lake!

AllyBen-0449 AllyBen-0559The birch pole Chuppah was lightly decorated with white blooms, seeded eucalyptus and vines trailing loosely across the birch.  


AllyBen-0919Following the wedding trends, Ally chose burlap table runners, mercury vases with soft and romantic vintage florals as her theme.


A lifetime of happiness to the happy couple!

We had a wonderful time working with everyone that made Ali and Ben’s special day perfect!

David Tutera at the Steve Harvey show!

Goolish fun!

We’ve joined forces once again with David Tutera for a goolish segment on the Steve Harvey Show! This is a peek into what is airing this October just in time for Halloween. The segment was all about spooky glam, it was a great mixture of red candelabras and eek … fake blood! David shared some unique Halloween tips for a villan and vixen party. Be sure to tune in for David’s tips and specialty cocktails to boot!
