Tamara Gruner | Private Country Club, Hinsdale, IL | tamaragruner.com
” We put this styled shoot together with our wedding vendors in the West Loop area of Chicago. We set this up at a private country club in Hinsdale, IL. We wanted to combine organic with elegance. We were also in love with this year’s color palette – grey, blue and mint.
Tabletop: Our floral design was organic, yet wild, with beautiful touches of blue and grey florals. Matching these florals were beautiful mercury color votives and silver mirrored candle holders, that added a touch of elegance to the ensemble. Table linen and table runner were kept neutral to highlight the beauty of the flowers and votives along with the napkins on the plates. The wonderful menu cards with their mint and
gold colored flowers added a little extra to all the elegance! To further accentuate the setting we added ribbons to the butter knifes to match
the elegant brown place cards with gold calligraphy.
Cake: We used a simple, but beautiful butterscotch cake, which was decorated with wild roses to match the theme and provide the organic
Dress & Accessories & Bouquet: The model is wearing a glamorous ivory wedding dress made of silk taffeta and lace from Victoria Sdoukos.
Accessories such as the beautiful Swarowski crystal sash and pearl bracelets and earrings were used to complete the bride’s enchanting look.
The hair style and veil adds romance to her look. The bouquet was festooned with wild roses which gives the bride an organic touch which
lined up beautifully with the setting.
Groom’s Attire: The groom is wearing a grey linen suit to match the style. His elegant accessories – bow tie and boutonniere adds that
little extra to our beautiful looking couple. ” – Tamara
