4th of July flowers

I couldn't help but post these flowers for this 4th of July weekend. I have these wonderful serpentine vases that I am in love with. They are so organic, free flowing and simple. In this arrangement I used Piano garden roses, white lisianthus, light blue hydrangea, red dahlias, red spray roses, red hypericum berries and dusty miller. Happy 4th everyone (:

reBar wedding flowers

This June 11th wedding had a super fun color palette including hot pink and turquoise. My brides colors were light pink, hot pink, turquoise and teal. The bridal bouquet was made with celosia, peony, godetia, chocolate cosmos, freesia, hypericum berries and modern greens. reBar doesn't really have "proper" tables, so, it's all about super cute bud vases to brighten up the cocktail tables and the beautiful Harvest table in the center of the bar area. I always enjoy working at this super cool DUMBO venue (: Enjoy.

Bohemian wedding flowers, NYC

This wedding took place on May 28th in a tribeca loft. The bride wanted a casual, earthy, yet edgy mix of flowers to trickle down the farm tables both inside and out. We used a combination of mercury tea light bottles and votives to sprinkle in between the moss and floral elements. The chuppah was made of natural birch wood with mix match ribbons tied to the front posts that were blowing beautifully in the wind. This image is pre fabric, due to the intense wind on the 13th floor over looking the water! The top bar has spanish moss and roses hanging from above.

F.E.A.S.T. at Round Hill wedding flowers.

This was my other May 21st wedding that took place at the gorgeous F.E.A.S.T. at Round Hillabout 75 miles upstate. These clients were near and dear to me for years. In fact, I nearly watched these kids grow up! The bride was looking for a soft, playful, feminine and natural looking flowers. We used lots of Peonies, veronica, roses, astrantia, scabiosa pods, delphinium, lambs ear, astilbe and thistle. The landscape at the venue was the perfect back drop to suit both the flowers and the brides over all style. The isle may have been my fav from this wedding. We used vintage blue mason jars hung from a shepherd hooks to line the isle and put down soft yellow and pink petals. They had a hand help chuppah that was made by their family, which I will post when I get the professional pictures.
I normally do not like to travel very far for weddings, however, this venue was a a pure joy to work at and wouldn't hesitate to make the trek again!

Brooklyn museum wedding.

I am very excited to share with you this super fun wedding that took place on May 21st at the gorgeous Brooklyn museum. My bride wanted bright colored flowers with tons of texture and kooky shapes. She really wanted designs that were outside the box of what you would expect from wedding flowers and of course I jumped to the challenge. In the beginning she wanted to incorporate little herbs or plants for favors because she loves to garden, but, sadly the museum didn't allow soil ): This gave me the idea to incorporate little radishes into her design because I felt like that represented her. She loved it! You'll notice in the close up shot of the center piece where I sneaked one in. In addition to the main center, we added little silver julip cups with thistle, red spray roses and billy buttons. Her bouquet was made with bold colors and included red charm peony, yellow ranunculous, vibrunum, poppy pods, white ranunculous, white peony, and yellow spray roses. The bout's were SO much fun!! This is a horrible picture, but, I promise I'll post the professional one when they come. You may have read on a ton of blogs about this brides invitation. They were the most brilliant one's I have EVER seen. You can see it here. When I saw these invitations I was so inspired to somehow incorporate the musical influence. After some milling around in my head, it dawned on my that we could subtly add in a old record/45 insert at the base of the bout's! They were thrilled at the idea and I certainly have never seen this done (: There are a bunch more elements that went with this wedding, but, you'll have to wait for professional ones in the coming months (;
