Wedding Planner RECAP @ The Chicago History Museum

Taking a look back at this rustic inspired wedding at the Chicago History Museum on the blog this week.  Lets see how you can transform a more formal, traditional space and give the space a more natural and rustic look.

The first starts with the colors and the actual blooms that you use.  For this wedding, The team at Revel Decor really helped put this look together perfectly!  By using a combination of bright colors, fuchsia and orange florals, along with some more natural elements, succulents, and assorted greens, really help set the tone.  This was the bride’s bouquet.


Looking at the History Museum, it really has such great, natural elements that really set the tone for this rustic inspiration.  First, the ceremony location, on the terrace is just simply, perfect!  With the park in the background.  By adding a natural arch up front and with floral elements anchoring the back of the aisle, this was really a perfect ceremony space.  (It rained all morning into the early afternoon and somehow, it turned out so beautifully to be outside!)



The place card table was set under the beautiful chandelier set in the lobby for cocktail hour.  Pulling in the colors from the bouquet along with purples, blues, and more to enhance the color.  Again, making and creating a more traditional shape, but the cascading greens and natural elements added, help set the look a part and stand out in the space.


The final touch was how the dining room came to life.  In the Chicago Room, the traditional elegance, needs to be dressed up.  Again, using a more traditional round shape floral piece, on a gold pedestal, using colorful florals and natural greens, really help make that look be more sophisticated to fit the space.

A few other elements, the cafe light treatment over the dance floor, along with the use of round and rectangular, linened tables with the French Country chair.  Using all of these elements, really helped create a rustic inspired wedding in a traditional space.



More to come next week on the blog!
