Bouquets, Boutonnieres and Centerpieces

Christina & Jon

March 29, 2013
Christina came to me with a very romantic vision for her wedding flowers: pale pink peonies, garden roses, and vintage touches. The bridal bouquet featured the palest tones. We also chose an arch of garden flowers in soft pastels for the outdoor ceremony and bright colored roses for the reception. Thank you Lina Jang for sharing these beautiful photos of the day!     www.jangphotographers.com

The Stone Mill

November 30, 2012

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.

 

The bridesmaids carried colorful bouquets with a interesting section of flowers – from pastel lavender spray roses and stock to deep purple allium, fragrant fresh lavender, airy bupleurum and mossy green dianthus.

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!

New York Botanical Garden

November 30, 2012

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.

     
For the dining tables Marina choose one of my favorite containers to present the flowers – a graceful footed glass compote that lifts the arrangement off the table without obscuring views and conversation. Wine bottle table numbers and soft green napkins added individual flair to each table.
 
 
The bride and groom shared this lovely sweetheart table; embellished with more of the requested olive branches and pastel flowers!
 
Our thanks to our designer Linh for her creativity and photography skills!

A Beautiful Bouquet

September 26, 2012
Just wanted to share this gorgeous bouquet.
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.

Tappan Hill Wedding

September 17, 2012
Tappan Hill Mansion is beautiful in any season but summer is especially lovely.
The rolling green hills provide countless spots for wonderful photos but
the Bride’s entrance on this grand staircase is always breathtaking!
Marissa’s beautiful bouquet was made of peonies, garden roses, freesia and lisianthus.

 

The elegant color scheme was white, cream and gray/green with a hint of blue in the bridesmaids’ bouquets and reception flowers.

The guests entered to this this gorgeous escort card table!
The candlelit sunset ceremony featured a sophisticated up-lit chuppah
with hanging tea lights.
The tables had unique configurations of several glass cubes, cylinders or rectangles.
 Thanks to H&H Photography and our own A. Hernandez for capturing the beauty of the day.

A Beautiful Country Wedding

August 9, 2012

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.

The flowers for each table were arranged in birch covered vases, each having a unique selection of pastel flowers. Borrowing the theme from the surrounding area, the tables were named for
fly fishing lures.

What a gorgeous spot for a wedding reception!
There were many lovely details in this wedding – including halos for flower girls.

Wedding at The Harold Pratt House

July 2, 2012
The Harold Pratt House on Madison Avenue was the elegant setting for a recent wedding.
The classic springtime theme included flowering branches and a selection of beautiful seasonal blooms.
The ceremony area was framed by freestanding “trees”
with delicate bouquets detailing the chairs along the aisle.
 
 White linens, frosted glass vases and candles at levels added a glow to the wood paneled room.
 Four triple long tables gave us plenty of room for small arrangements,
tall vases of flowering pear, floating candles in stemmed goblets and votive candles.
 Vases were arranged to lead the eye through the room and keep the view open.

The prettiest spring flowers were in bloom: lilac, tulips, and hyacinth
with roses, hydrangea and gardenias.
Thank you to bride and groom Kate & George,
the wonderful staff at the Pratt House and especially to
Daniel Krieger for capturing the elegance and style of this event!

Tanya & Jon

June 21, 2012
This lovely wedding began at the historic “Little Church Around the Corner”
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.
    
The guests moved to the Stone Mill at the New York Botanical Garden to celebrate.
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.
