Posted in Ceremony & Reception Locations, Wedding Planners

Ibitayo and Oluseyi had their wedding on August 14th 2010 at the beautiful Floryan Banquets in Des Plaines, IL.

Erica Siafa of G.E.S Events was the wedding planner of this wedding and she did a FANTASTIC job. The creative  use of flowers, candles and colors created a fun and colorful- yet elegant wedding. Our photographer had a blast photographing this fun couple at their gorgeous wedding. The wedding color theme was a rainbow of bright colors. Whoever said that wedding colors had to just be one or 2 colors will be amazed to see how the use of so many colors created a breathtaking reception.  The bridal party was as colorful as the flowers- with  dresses and vests to match the beautiful floral arrangements which included bright pink  hydrangeas, colorful carnations, elegant white roses,  fancy feathers and fun beads among other items.

If you are looking to plan a colorful wedding at a beautiful banquet hall in the Chicagoland area, we highly recommend that you contact G.E.S events and consider the beautiful Floryan Banquests in Des Plaines.
