I like flowers.
I really do, but spending a fortune on plants that are flown in from far away and most likely going to be discarded the next day is just not my cup of tea.
So I made the easy decision that a traditional florist is not the route I will be going for my wedding.
Luckily we have a family friend who started Avium Flowers, providing fresh-cut flowers grown right here in Chicago in a sustainable and organic manner.
Right now I am working with them on the flowers and colors that I like. When the time comes, they can then order the appropriate seeds and specifically keep me in mind for the next growing season.
My wedding flowers are legitimately being grown just for me, right here in Chicago.
Seriously, how cool is that?
See some of their amazing work below.

Did you know Avium also does weddings? In the midst of the start of the season chaos it was invigorating to sit down and talk #bridalblooms for some upcoming autumnal celebrations 🍂🌹❣️ Photo cred: the amazing @heidiuhlmanphotography . . . #womenfarmer #urbangrown #chicagowedding #weddingtime #bridetobe #slowflowers #aviumweddings
