Confession. When Kaity Brawley sent over the photos of Ainsley and Jad's wedding, my jaw dropped. I've had the privilege of working with some incredible photographers from around the country, but these photos completely took my breath away.
There couldn't have been a more fitting bride to carry such a dramatic, over-sized bridal bouquet. Ainsley, already stunningly beautiful, was an absolute vision on her wedding day. Her gown was breathtaking, but the confidence she carried with her bouquet literally turned heads. Gorgeous, lush peonies were blooming in early June, so we mixed them with garden roses, astilbe, eucalyptus, stock, ranunculus, and other full, fragrant blooms.
As Ainsley and Jad made their way to their wedding at the Chicago Cultural Center, traffic nearly stopped as thirteen beautiful bridesmaids followed behind them. The venue was lit with soft, dim candle light, greenery, and charming collections of small floral arrangements. Of course, the ladies at Shannon Gail Weddings and Events made the day so easy for everyone, there was a brief moment we actually felt like guests at the wedding!
