Amanda & Chase | Romantic Spring White & Fern Wedding at Pear Tree Estate in Champaign, IL

April 2023

Amanda and Chase chose a classic white wedding style with ferns for a little bit of whimsy. Amanda’s bouquet was filled with lush white blooms of playa blanca roses, tulips, ranunculus, freesia, hellebore and lisianthus with ruscus, leatherleaf, and sword fern greenery. Bridesmaids bouquets were smaller versions of the bridal but with a touch of quicksand roses to compliment their lilac dresses. For Chase, we opted for a timeless white spray rose boutonniere with touches of lisianthus and deep greenery to match the bride.

The ceremony space at Pear Tree boasted a simple yet showstopping garden feel design. Deep green ferns with touches of white delphinium and larkspur lined the aisle. At the altar, the couple stood in front of a whimsical fern floor arch for a romantic backdrop. Unpretentious and approachable, the fern plants filled the ceremony space beautifully while still feeling comfortable and relaxed. Afterwards, these ferns were repurposed as gifts to the couples family members to continue to enjoy long after the wedding celebration.

Guest tables for the reception were filled with greenery, coordinating white blooms, and candlelight glow. For variety and interest, we chose three centerpiece styles on round and farmhouse tables. Floating candles and greenery were placed down the farmhouse tables as runners, while round tables had either a floating candle cluster with greenery accents or a lush white arrangement in a silver metal compote bowl paired with votive candles in silver hobnail holders. The overall effect was classy and lush with a touch of whimsy.

This was not the first time we worked with Amanda and Chase as they also modeled for a tasting event the previous year! We were thrilled to work with the couple for a second time at Pear Tree Estate, this time for the real deal. Congratulations to the newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Norton!


“Julie was absolutely wonderful to work with! From the first meeting all the way up to the wedding day was a complete breeze. Her communication, professionalism, and expertise took the stress and worry away from everything wedding related. To not have to worry about set up and take down and everything arriving perfectly and looking beautiful is priceless. She was very flexible and understanding with my ideas, wants, budget, etc. I can’t recommend her enough!”
