Brooklyn Botanic Gardens wedding flowers.

My bride contacted me last summer to start planning her Feb. 19th wedding at the Botanical Gardens this winter. I have to say, it means so much to me to have a bride place such trust in me and leave so many design decisions completely in my court. She came to me knowing her colors were purple and grey and that her style was modern with a funky twist, but that was it! NOTHING makes me happier than to hand over a bridal bouquet to a happy bride. I loved working on this wedding!
The card table arrangement was made from Laurel branches with scallop shaped tags hanging from black ribbon assigning guests to a table. I wired in purple orchids into the branches for a pop of color and to soften the branches with blooms.
The grooms bout was made with a ranuncuous, purple trachelium and a touch of brunia.

Valentines Day inspirations.

Here are a few designers and artists who have beautiful products that inspire me. I have had the pleasure of working with ceramic artist May Luk, as well at stationary designer, Ruth from Papertopias. I have also been working on a new line of jewelry that groups semi precious stones in a way that looks like a flower. This particular necklace is made with black onyx and freshwater pearl. And, finally, last but not least, a hair adornment by Twigs and Honey.
Happy Valentines Day all!
