Palest Blush Bouquet at Battery Gardens

Bouquet Recipe Battery Gardens_Melissa Kruse

It’s no secret: we love blush wedding flowers. And creating this textured, romantic bridal bouquet, in the palest palette of blush and ivory, was pure pleasure. Beautiful bride Adriana wanted flowers with a classic but fresh look. Her bouquet was softly rounded and dimensional, with stems partially wrapped in ivory satin ribbon.

We chose several of our favorite specialty roses:dusty-blush Quicksand roses, warmer blush Keira roses, and pale-blush La Perla roses. Using a variations of a similar color adds depth, even to light-colored bouquets. Ranunculus, spray roses and garden roses, brought cream, ivory and white into the mix. A few sprigs of seeded eucalyptus accented the flowers.

Bouquet Recipe: Jewel-Toned Beauty


Our bride envisioned a stunning, vibrant wedding bouquet, for her fall ceremony at Manhattan’s Ritz-Carlton Battery Park. Jewel tones have a special place in our hearts for fall and winter weddings.

We composed this lush, compact bridal bouquet with red garden roses, Freedom roses and deep-red Bacarra roses, combined with dark purple stock and magenta cymbidium orchids with burgundy centers. Stems were tied with an ivory satin ribbon, with ends exposed, for a fresh touch.

Romantic Jewish Wedding on Long Island

Greg & Dana's Wedding at Fresh Meadow Country Club from Sarah Tew Photography on Vimeo.

Fresh floral decor and time-honored tradition made for a perfectly romantic, Jewish wedding on Long Island in early fall.

Greg & Dana were wed at Fresh Meadow Country Club on Long Island in September. Dana wore a gorgeous gown by Carolina Herrera– it was perfect on her and Greg’s face full of delight at the first look was so fun to capture. The forecast was for rain and we weren’t sure what time it would start, but we lucked out and got just enough time to do the couple’s portraits together outside before it started coming down.

Wedding Flowers in Paris With Karen Tran


Last year I traveled to Paris to take part in Karen Tran’s Master Class. Today I came across a video and thought I’d share! It was just amazing to meet and work with Karen. Her floral designs have been a major influence and inspiration to our whole team. Her wedding flowers are created with a sense of lavish romance that really casts a spell.

You might recognize the lush tablescapes and ceremony decor we created for a styled shoot, from our gallery Charming Chateau. With photos by Christina Federova.

The shoot took place in Paris at Chateau de Bouffemont. You can learn more about Karen Tran’s Master Classes, and find some of the most beautiful wedding-flower inspiration, at The Floral Experience.

Right after high school, she followed her dream and moved to the United States. After starting out as a cocktail waitress in a small restaurant, she gained experience in all aspects of the hospitality business, working private and corporate events at high-end venues all over New York City.

Beata has focused on weddings since 2013, when she earned her certification as a wedding and event planning consultant and completed an internship with the David Tutera Wedding Experience Expo.
