Fall wedding for a Brooklyn couple

Matt and Laura wanted a warm, autumnal, wedding blending lots of oranges, reds, and yellows with plenty of texture. They are a relaxed creative couple who were a breeze to work with. We used mostly orange"Trix" roses, black baccara roses, orange protea, mini euch., berries, mums and celosia in our designs.

Laura also wanted a pair of custom made earrings to go with her vintage flare accessories. We created the perfect size hand made earrings using 14k gold fill, aqua-marie, and moonstone rondells for some shimmer.

French-parisian style wedding at the Montauk Club, Brooklyn.

The Montauk Club in park slope Brooklyn is one of my very favorite venues to work. It's old world beauty is breathtaking and was the perfect backdrop for my Oct. 23rd wedding. The style was a sort of darker twist on a French-parisian market. We used all warm tones which complemented the bridesmaids vintage, mix matched, mustard/gold dresses. The bridal bouquet was a mix of Dahlias, billy buttons, pheasant feathers, protea, and plumb colored roses. The center pieces were my signature mixed bottle collection on a stump riser covered with burlap. The card table was one of my all time fav's. I constructed a "bird on a wire" type card/tag holder. The tags had a tea stained look and were attached using tiny little clips. In the center of the table, I made a large arrangement inside one of my vintage bird cages. To the far right was a stack of vintage books with an oil lamp glowing in all it's glory. My bride scored a vintage mail box on where people would put their hand written post card into the box. Super cute wedding and even cuter couple (:

Galapagos Art space wedding, Dumbo Brooklyn

My bride was looking for a slightly vintage look with a crisp twist using bright greens and vivacious yellows. I used white hydrangea, yellow freesia, white ranunculous, billy buttons, star of david, ferns and a black handle for the bouquets. For the ceremony flowers, we used the most gorgeous white Amyrillis mixed with red and yellow berries, curly willow branches and hanging tea lights. The cocktail tables were small, so we used an assortment of containers to mix it up a bit. My favorites were these tiny little birds nest's with billy buttons, white dahlia's and china berries.

Montauk Club wedding, Brooklyn NY. Grandama's attic style flowers.

I don't know how I get so lucky with getting the sweetest couples ever. Julie and Stu came over for a consult about 2 months before their big day. They wanted a "Grandma's attic" style wedding using vintage medicine bottles, mason jars, and Julie's hand painted, hand build stamp pad display on each table. They got married at the gorgeous Montauk Club in Park Slope Brooklyn and their flowers were a complete joy to make.

Earthy green thumb wedding in NYC

My client for this Oct 9th wedding was a very down to earth garden grower who's colors were burgundy and lavender. I LOVED putting her collection together. It was one of my fav's over the weekend. For the favors table, we did a bunch of little bud vases with burgundy scabiosa and rose mary sprigs. The bridal bouquet was made of white callas mixed with lavender and whispy greens. The brides maids bouquet's were made of fresh lavender and scabiosa pods. I loved the wristletts for the moms! They were made with mini succulents and fresh lavender on an adjustable, aluminum bracelet.

The Foundry in Long Island City. Black, white, green wedding.

I finally got professional pictures from this wedding back in July and thought I would share. The ones I used were terrible, since I am no photographer (:
Linsey and Jeff found me online and promptly set up an appointment to talk about their flowers. These two were a pleasure to deal with not only due to their quality taste in style, but, they were beyond organized! The bride told me that her desired floral style was whimsical yet modern and clean and slightly edgy. They wanted to use all black, white and green florals to complement the exquisite Foundry venue located in Long Island city. We choose chocolate cosmos which actually smell like chocolate! Gerbera daisies with a black center, fiddle head ferns, white hydrangea, geranium, and stephanotis in the bridal bouquet. Her ceremony pieces were clear cylinders using branches, green berries, and gorgeous white delphinium. The HUGE urn was so much fun to make. I literally had to straddle between the ledge and the center urn. It is made up of Manzanita branches, vibrunum foliage, JUMBO fiddle heads (3 in the front of large arrangement) and white delphinium. Lindsey's brides maids wore a custom made head band with white Dahlia, chocolate cosmos and geranium attached to the side for a little 20's flare.

Brooklyn Boat house wedding flowers, "Great Gatsby" style.

I love every thing from the 1920's and was thrilled to do a "Great Gatsby" style wedding at the Prospect Park Boathouse. This venue is not only gorgeous, but, it's practically my back yard. My bride contacted me only TEN day's before her wedding! We had a very tight budget, so, we did simple center pieces using Pampas ferns, white calla lily's and a strand of pearls dripping around the container. The brides maid's bouquet was created with pale pink hydrangea, pink lisianthus lambs ear and a subtle semi circle of pale pink feathers. The bridal bouquet was hands down my favorite from this collection. I got my hands on some unimaginably light pink "bombastic" roses which made for a breath taking-ly (not a word; I know!) sweet and simple bouquet. I collared the roses with soft silvery lambs ear for a final touch. I also used my vintage bird cage as a card receiver. Inside was a single stem of pale pink hydrangea in a vintage medicine bottle dripping with pearls and pink feathers sitting at the bottom of the cage.
