At STUDIO VERTO by Denenge Design, I conceptualize and create custom florals for weddings, home tours, and special events.  My arrangements are contemporary, pared-down, and elegant, globally influenced with a touch of the unexpected.  Dedicated to intricate detail, for a recent "Winter Wonderland" wedding in Chicago, I handcrafted custom cherry blossom trees and hand-strung thousands of Strass faceted crystals for centerpiece arrangements (see: Ace of Cups design in floral photo gallery).  I often feature crystals in my designs to mimic water and to enhance the reflective quality of each display (Strass from Sibilano's Chandeliers, Swarovski from Har-Man Importing and Fire Mountain Gems, Dave's Down to Earth Rock Shop in Evanston, On the Rocks Chicago on North Clark Street). 

A background in theatre, installation, and set design informs my floral design and styling.  I employ all manner of flowers real and faux, fruit, and props to bring the sketched vision to life, and I truly love the design process.  For each design, first and foremost, I take my cues from the client, reflecting individual personalities, themes, and visions in floral form.  Inquire about custom florals.
