on a gorgeous October Sunday.
The intimate and rustic Stone Mill at the NYBG is the perfect spot for smaller weddings, and it offers a beautiful outdoor ceremony location. This wedding used one of my favorite color schemes: shades of purple with fresh green to set off the cool tones. There was a lovely natural quality to all the decor.
For her flowers, the bride requested fresh artichokes (we used the preserved dried type to keep the bouquet from being too heavy), cream roses,silver gray brunia, fresh lavender, and bright green hypericum berries. Finished with a stem wrap of lace from her gown, the unique combination made a very striking one-of-a-kind bouquet.
Small sprays for the mothers to carry and boutonnieres for the gentleman carried out the theme with a stem wrap of rustic sisal.
The entrance window sill is one of my favorite spots; the perfect place for a welcoming arrangement to introduce the style of the wedding decor.

The happy bridal party!
We are fortunate to work at many beautiful venues in the NYC area and are always happy when the weather cooperates for outdoor ceremonies! The New York Botanical Garden has a beautiful arbor that we have embellished in many ways, for different seasons. The indoor space is also exquisite. Here are some photos from an early fall wedding.
The lovely bridesmaids’ bouquets featured shades of pink, coral, peach and green; some brighter and some more pastel to coordinate with their individually selected dresses.
The bride carried a loosely designed tied bouquet combining traditional roses (our favorite bloom, and their meaning is “love”!) with a variety of green elements and fresh lavender for an organic feeling.
We were so happy to be able to provide the bride’s requested fresh olive branches to reflect her Greek heritage. The addition of pink and coral garden flowers coordinated the ceremony setting with all the wedding decor.
Working with the bride, Marina, was such a pleasure! We both love a natural approach to floral design and she very much wanted to keep the garden feeling in all the elements of her wedding decor. It was also important to her to include meaningful personal touches.The escort card table showcased tall garden flowers in French market buckets for a natural look. A pretty individual detail was the crocheted Greek lace cloth used as the table topper.
The roses, calla lilies and freesia are all very traditional bridal flowers but the
hanging green amaranthus adds an updated, individual touch.
I like this for late summer/early fall brides.
The elegant color scheme was white, cream and gray/green with a hint of blue in the bridesmaids’ bouquets and reception flowers.
We traveled to Beaverkill, New York for Marcela and Marty’s recent wedding. The scenery was breathtaking, the day was beautiful, and the bride was radiant! I worked closely with the Marcela to achieve her vision of very natural “just picked” flowers for her decor.
From the bride’s collection of photos: the procession of all ten flower girls and numerous ring boys!
The classic springtime theme included flowering branches and a selection of beautiful seasonal blooms.

on East 29th Street. Because the church decor is so unique and detailed, we decided to keep the ceremony flowers “quiet” in tones of green, cream and white.
Tanya and Jon chose a literary theme for their table decor – fun for all!
We really enjoyed working with them to carry out their vision.
