NYC summer wedding.

The wedding took place on June 25 at the Harold Pratt House in NYC. This was a special wedding for me and my team because it was our friends wedding! It was a fun experience because we were there early setting up in our jeans and cloggs by day and then transformed into dresses and heals by night.... and then again for break down. It was like the Cinderella at the stroke of midnight! We danced and had an amazing time at the wedding, and then, as soon as it was over, we ran into the bathroom to rip off dresses and broke down the event.

The flowers we used were a bright combination of blue hydrangeas, yellow peonies, roses, godetia, calla's, ginger root, orchids, bluporum, and vibrunum.

For the ceremony, we strung about 200 orange carnations staggered in lengths across the back wall. It was a sweet and subtle way to frame the ceremony area keeping clean lines and an airy feel.

Summery blooms

This July 18th wedding had one my favorite summer bouquets filled with yellow celosia, coral peony, blue tweedia, dahlia, status, spray rose and protea greens. The bout's were made of crespedia, hypericum berries, and blue tweedia.

English garden wedding flowers

This wedding was inspired by English gardens, bird cages and the outdoors. We alternated the tables with bird cages adorned with roses, veronica, lily's, orchids, peonies, and ivy. Around the base were little bird vessels and medicine bottles with mixed blooms. The other tables were using a tall, cast pillar with a romantic mix of blooms as well as bud vases at the base. There were 8 brides maids with all white blooms including roses, peony, and hydrangea. The mom's had a posy of large white callas. The bridal bouquet was made of a mix of soft, muted colors including callas, peony, garden roses, sweet pea and more. The little mini urns were used for the cocktail tables. I LOVE these little things! I found them at the annual Brimfield antique show this past May. The large, vintage, blue bird cage was the main piece for the escort table. Check out those lamps on either side! The professional shot are by the talented PHOTOMUSE STUDIO.
