Luxurious garden wedding
From Beso Weddings & Events: Wedding design begins with a love story, a vision, a dream. Our thoughtfully curated design concept showcases a luxurious garden wedding for the modern couple at one of the most beautiful natural settings, Chicago Botanic Garden. The Overlook is the perfect serene backdrop for a romantic ceremony and the English Walled Garden has an understated grandeur and lush surroundings that make for a truly unique wedding reception experience. Custom designed wedding invitations set a warm and welcoming tone and romantic feel for a summer garden wedding.
Garden ceremony design
The ceremony aisle is lined with walnut chairs combined with wood bench seating fitting for the natural surroundings. The altar is framed by two towers of blush, rose, coral, and ivory color rose blooms and lush greenery.
garden party dinner
After cocktails and conversation, guests are invited to the upper English Walled Garden for dinner where they arrive at an exquisitely set table surrounded by stone columns and lush greenery. An oversized floral statement piece sweeps beautifully across the center of the table and is filled with lush garden roses amongst softer color blooms and vines. Delicately placed Ivy brings a fresh look and feel to each place setting. Guests enjoy a fresh and savory meal on the modern place settings at a table covered with a textured linen with creamy ivory tones and a touch of luxurious sheen providing the perfect balance of natural style and elegance.
asymmetrical square cake
As guests enter the dessert space, they are amazed by the towering 4-tier asymmetrical square cake with aged rough stone fondant finish and cascading vines of (sugar) sweet peas. The celebration continues as guests enjoy a slice of fresh cake and mini-desserts displayed in modern glass shadow boxes for an added special touch to the experience.
stylish bride and groom
The groom looks sharp in a classic black bow-tie tux with a vest for a modern look. The bride looks and feels amazing in her custom fitted wedding gown with embroidered and beaded Chantilly bodice and peach ivory ombre tulle. A beautifully embellished cathedral veil is intentionally placed low over her loose and wavy hairstyle for a fresh and modern look. Her bridal look is completed with hanging floral earrings and sparkling rose gold shoes. She holds a large, unstructured and airy bouquet filled with large summer blooms and accented with the perfect trailing hand-dyed natural silk ribbon.
