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.
Rachel’s bouquet was vivid and textural with a hint of creamy roses as a nod to bridal traditions.The floral style was rustic, warm and seasonal with beautiful open roses contrasting scabious pods and velvety dusty miller leaves. Berries and a sisal wrap completed the grooms unique boutonniere.
The autumn foliage was a perfect compliment to a perfect day, just as we had hoped!
The light held long enough for outdoor photos and a stroll through the gardens.
The escort apples were enjoyed by guests at the end of the evening.
