I try not to post two weddings on the same day, but May is crazy busy! This May 14th wedding was super fun to design. The bride wanted a modern spin on springy colors. The bridal bouquet was one of my fav's. We used these gorgeous roses with bright pink edges, peonies, green mums, parrot tulips, poppy pods, orchids, and ferns. The bridesmaids held bouquets made of all greens and whites including peonies, mums, poppies, and ferns. The ceremony was at the Brooklyn Historical society where we used a larger scale arrangement set behind them along this stunning oak table. This grandiose space was perfect for the ceremony!
This May 7th wedding was all about spring time! We used all soft colors of spring including lavender, yellows, blues and pinks. We caught the very last week of cherry blooms hence their full blooms. Enjoy!

This spring-y wedding was so much fun to design! The bride wanted an unstructured, elegant look using soft tones. I chose muted greens like eucalpytus, succulents, and dusty miller to accent the flowers. The main blooms were peonies, pink veronica, ranunculous, poppy seed heads, and queen ann lace. We alternated the centerpieces by using the full scale arrangement with mercury candle sticks and paired the succulent based arrangements with a collection of mini bell jars. These featured tiny succulents with grey spanish moss for a simple, elegant spin on a terrarium! The escort table had a huge cherry blossom arrangement with little bird bud vases at the base.
