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.
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!
