Winter wedding at Angle Orensanz

This wedding was the absolute definition of romantic. We worked all year for this special wedding to come to fruition and WOW, was it worth it!

The chuppah was packed with white amaryllis, quicksand roses, peonies, majore spray roses and seeded eucalyptus. The canopy was vintage lace draped over the top with a bit of sparkly fabric sweeping back.

I had to make TWO chuppahs for this wedding (; Well, one of them was miniature for the cake topper!

The tables scape's were over the top decadent.  My flowers were mixed with the most gorgeous linens, flat ware and accessories that really made this wedding stand apart.

Indian inspired wedding at the Brooklyn Museum

This wedding was full of bright colors including a range of pinks, coral, light blue and silver. We used tons of coral charm peonies, peach amaryllis, pink callas, champagne garden roses and juliett roses. For the Mandap, we used only stands of lace, peach, champagne and ivory ribbons and dangled vintage chandelier bits at different lengths. You can see more images on my floral Facebook page HERE.

Steampunk inspired, fall wedding in Brooklyn!

With fall approaching, I wanted to dig up one of my favorite weddings from last fall that took place at the Prospect Park Boathouse. I was thrilled to hear from this "off beat" sort of bride. She was looking to me to conjure up some super interesting elements for her fall wedding that incorporated a vintage and steampunk elements. 

To start the bride wanted to make sure of two things. 1.) use lot's of orange. and 2.) use dried chinese lanterns. The task was on! For the centerpieces, we decided to use my serpentine vases that snaked in a semi circle on the tables that have a combination of chinese lanterns and fiddle head ferns. On either side of the serpentine snake, we had a mini bronze urns that had deep red Black Baccara roses, orange protea, scabiosa pods, dahlias, and berries. We chose a finely woven jute table cloth to neutralize the bright oranges, but, keep it warm.

The brides bouquet was one of my favorites. We went with a super rich and over saturated color pallet to contrast her gorgeous vintage inspired lace dress. Her girls were in gorgeous lace and copper satin dresses and also held a rich, autumnal bouquet of flowers. 

Her card table was super fun! We decided to use my vintage tool organizer for the card table display. Each of us spent time collecting old clock keys that became the anchor for the name tags created by the super talented Ruth Irving of Papertopias. Each key was nestled in a cubby hole, resting on top of a vintage napkin. Next to the tool organizer was my gorgeous vintage type writer from the 1920's that was used as the guest book. The paper was also hand crafted by Ruth Irving to feature a customized monogram to signify their special day.

Happy pre-fall!

Wedding at The Foundry, L.I.C. by Rebecca Shepherd floral design

This wedding took place on September 9th, one of the most gorgeous days of the year. This was also one of my favorite weddings this year to design. We kept is sophisticated and modern with a touch of glam-goth! We used David Austin patience garden roses, bells of Ireland, black star callas, red ranunculus, cymbidium orchids, chocolate cosmos, and the exquisite Tacca orchids for the over the top dramamarama additive. These are by far the most unusual orchids I have even encountered. We used them in special places like the bridal bouquet, the cake table, and scattered on the long table.  Another one of my favorite touches were the mixed silver and gold chairs and silverware. So fun and unique! See more from this wedding on my floral Facebook page. Enjoy! xo

The Cream Event in NYC with Patina Vintage Rentals

This event came and went like a whirl wind! Patina Vintage Rentals asked me about a week before to collaborate, and how could I ever say no!? I took a trip upstate to see there barn and "talk shop" a bit. When I saw the fire place mantle, I instantly knew what I wanted to do with it. I sketched down on paper what I saw in my mind and then it was all about the logistics of how to build and transport. I also added a fun picture of some of us gals including my beloved Firefly Events ladies who came up with a stylishly original tape scape and backdrop.

Ruffled blog featured the event as well!
