Wedding day at Chez-Chicago

Chez Chicago


It was love at first sight when we stepped into the ultra fresh new event space Chez-Chicago early this year! It is stark and modern in style and has this ethereal light streaming in that feels like you are dreaming! It was the perfect backdrop for our Lichtenstein inspired wedding day!  
All it needed was that POP!  
And lucky for us, Amanda Hein was there to capture it all on film! She really has a great eye!
Magnificent Milestones

All things paper were created by Kara and the team at Magnificent Milestones. Her combination of dots and swirls, colors and patterns were right up our alley! She paid close attention to the details to set the tone for a fun and playful welcome.
Don’t you just love the skittles? We couldn’t resist!Portraits by Dilly Lily

Once inside you are greeted with portraits of the bride & groom that we created out of flowers! We were inspired of course by the silkscreen paintings of Mr POP Art himself, Andy Warhol. A little comic book humor; he looks ever-ready to marry his beauty with a vivacious I DO!

Pop Art Cocktail Hour

We really want this print for our kitchen!
Kale chips, beet chips, yam chips oh my!
Let’s start with a Blood Orange Martini – the signature drinks for the night!

If you get the chance you want to sit at her table! The food was so carefully curated and just look at the fresh vibrant colors! LOVE!

Dilly Lily

To carry out the evening Dilly LiIy created the florals and styled the room  – which would not have been possible without our constant partners at Tablescapes Event Rentals which provided all the contemporary table setting ( triangle plates and cool stemware) as well as the uber cool white laquer table and white mirage ghost chairs – which we have been using over and over for our brides! SO chic!

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.
