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 Etsy.com where people would put their hand written post card into the box. Super cute wedding and even cuter couple (:

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.
