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!
