Hitched: Maya & Sid's Botanic Garden Wedding - Part 2

I hope you caught Part 1 of Maya & Sid's wedding at the Chicago Botanic Gardens! And now it's on to their actual ceremony in the serene English Walled Garden and reception in McGinley Pavilion! Maya's family welcomed Sid's family to the ceremony at the gates of the English Walled Garden.

After the ceremony and cocktail hour, guests moved to McGinley Pavilion, which was decked in gorgeous, vibrant colors! I am absolutely obsessed with this moss elephant that Alex of Exquisite Designs created, and which we elevated on an acrylic pedestal. This graced the escort card table at the entrance to the reception.

We created and printed menus that wrapped around each napkin... loved this simple detail!

Love this trio centerpiece with vibrant shades of red roses, magenta spray roses and celosia, purple stock and orange spray roses in the mercury glass containers. There's even a tiny silver elephant on the table (Maya loves elephants!)
