The couple danced to Lucky by Jason Mraz.
Bunches of white flowers tied with a navy blue ribbon hung on the aisle chairs.
A large centerpiece of orchids, irises, stock and lisianthus sat on the escort card table.
The couple named their tables after the different areas in the botanic garden.
The couple wanted to keep things elegant, so a  mix of purple flowers and succulents in glass vases sat on the tables.
The couple's three-tier white cake had vanilla buttercream frosting and was decorated with blue, purple and white buttercream flowers.
The couple's outdoor ceremony was held in the rose garden. Erin walked down a navy blue aisle runner for a bit of contrast to the lush green space.
Guests gathered under the canopy of McGinley Pavilion for the reception. “We wanted to keep the décor simple yet elegant and let the centerpieces and the beauty of the garden take center stage,” Erin says.
Erin and Eric, Chicagoland natives, have been visiting the Chicago Botanic Garden together since high school. “It was a dream come true to get married in a place that had so much significance to us,” Erin says. The couple exchanged vows beneath a linen-draped huppah in the Krasberg Rose Garden.
Erin's bridesmaids carried a variety of white, blue and purple flowers combined with rustic succulents.
Eric had a simple white rose and purple calla lily boutonniere.
The couple served their guests strawberry mango infused water during the outdoor cocktail hour.
The couple's custom-made stationery had a floral theme throughout. Even though each piece was designed by a different designer, the colors and theme were consistent.
