This was a mid-September wedding at the gorgeous, historic, Montauk Club in park slope Brooklyn. We used soft and feminine flowers, with a bohemian twist for the bouquets. The bout's were made with little polka dot feathers white ranunculous, and a chocolate cosmo for the groom's bout.

The weekend of September 3rd was a very busy one! This was yet another wedding we did in our beloved borough. The bride wanted a relaxed, simple, yet beautiful mix of mostly muted, washed out colors with a few little unexpected textural pops. The bridal bouquet was made of juliette garden roses, scabiosa pods, queen ann lace, cedum, snow berry, hydrangea, dahlia, seeded euch, and shaker grass. The center pieces were made of a collection of containers including blue vintage ball jars, medicine bottles, and a wooden stump riser.

This August 26th wedding was super fun to design and was held at one of my favorite places to work; The Foundry, L.I.C. Rich in colors and tons of texture, we used a blend of oranges, purples, greens and pinks. I loved the greenhouse room where we used emerald green wine bottles with taper candle sticks along side bud vases stuffed with thistle, dahlias and dianthus. The ceremony arrangements were some of my fav's with the dramatic paper ferns, hydrangeas, thistle, greens, and branches.
This August 20th wedding was held in the back yard of Brooklyn brownstone steps form where I live. I love when my neighbors email me to do their flowers and we realize we sort of know each other (: Her colors were bright pink's and purples. We used fluffy, bright blooms including Dahlias, lisianthus with more modern flowers like Picasa callas and dendrobium orchids. The boutonniere was made of purple lisianthus and jasmine.
The bride and groom wanted an elegant, sophisticated, yet organic feel to their flowers. We used a soft mix of blooms including hydrangea, callas, dahlias, astrantia, seeded euch, scabiosas and more. For the ceremony we used glass cylinders with floating candles, petals and two larger arrangements using hydrangea, roses and curly willow branches.

I've got a few back to back posted because I am playing catch up from this summer's weddings. This was an August 13th wedding.
I LOVED this bridal bouquet. It was a small/medium scale using the sought after David Austin garden roses, red Piano roses, spray roses, dahlias, ranunculous, and coxcomb. We used a Daffy blue ribbon and a butterfly memento pined on to the handle. The centers incorporated hydrangea, hypericum berries, white lisianthus, red piano roses and stock.
The chuppah for the ceremony had lots of thin birch poles attached to steel structure, red berries and greens in the upper corners and white delphinium coming up from the base.
This was an August 5th wedding for two lovely fellow Irish folk that loved to bike. The bride requested her flowers to incorporate lots of herbs and wild flowers in addition to any sort of Irish element we could think of. As I scratched my head.... it came to me to use Jameson, Tullermordue, and Guinness beer cans as the containers! I carefully ripped off the tops o the cans, foamed them up and popped in the flowers. They were super fun and great for guests to take home.

I met this couple just a few weeks before their August 5th wedding in NYC. They were very excited to bring in some local Brooklyn people to collaborate on their wedding. The bride was so sweet and had no shame admitting that pink is her very very favorite color! The style we went for was sort of a mash of shappy chic meets the Hamptons. We used garden roses, jasmine, stephanotis, orchids, hydrangea, calla, tulips, and white and pink gomphrena and more.
