By the time the rings were exchanged, it was clear to everyone that Yani and Divinity had put together the ultimate mixed tape of love songs for their ceremony. Yani looks back and says, “Finally, after the kiss, we exited into cocktail hour to ‘Is This Love’ by Bob Marley!” Here, she shares the final chapter in their Real BB Wedding Story.
We always tell our couples not to overlook the card table – it’s the first thing guests see heading into the reception and helps set the tone for the rest of the wedding. Yani and Divinity completely ran with the idea in welcoming their family and friends. The traditional décor fixture took shape in a jaw-dropping tree made of wisteria and birch branches adorned with roses, ranunculus, camellia greenery, and moss. “We had heart-shaped origami place cards, inspired by our connection to Japan, suspended from the branches waiting for our guests,” Yani says.

With the end of each season, we always like to take a moment to reflect on our weddings – what made each one unique, memorable, and especially beautiful. This past summer, we had the pleasure of decorating the most luxurious venues in the New York area. Wedding styles ranged from upscale elegance to natural romanticism to modern chic. As floral designers, it’s always exciting to see how flowers and décor enliven these already gorgeous spaces while expressing a couple’s style and personality.

With the start of fall just days away, we have been reflecting on the summer wedding season. And when it comes to luxury bridal fashion, flowers, and venues, the famous brides who walked the aisle this past season ignited our hearts and imaginations. Their highly anticipated nuptials took place at a French château, London church, English cathedral, and exclusive Hawaiian hotel. While these weddings were spectacularly lavish in every way possible, they were also a beautiful expression of each bride’s unique style and personality.
Katharine McPhee Katharine McPhee and David Foster’s much-discussed courtship culminated with the couple exchanging vows at the Church of St. Yeghiche in South Kensington in late June. The Actress-singer wore a gorgeous custom Zac Posen dress featuring a ballgown silhouette, sweetheart neckline, and layer upon layer of striped tulle skirt. She accessorized with a dramatic cathedral veil and soft colored floral and greenery bouquet. The ceremony décor of lush, bright blooms created a striking contrast against the church’s ornate interior. For the post-ceremony celebrations, which took place at a private club, the bride changed into a silk cocktail dress, also by Zac Posen. Reception florals had a decadent, English garden feel with verdant greenery embellished with white and green roses and hydrangea. Read More

As a wedding florist, we have much to be excited for heading into the fall. This time of the year has a particular air about it, which can be sensed in nature’s dark and moody turn as the days get shorter, colder, and quieter. And as the season changes, so does wedding décor. Soft hues and flirty accents give way to richer palettes and natural elements. When it comes to styling and design, autumn has much more to offer than pumpkins, orange, and Halloween (though there is nothing wrong with incorporating any of these themes into your big day!) From pretty bouquets to jaw-dropping ceremony backdrops to lavish tablescapes, we’re sharing gorgeous fall wedding décor ideas that celebrate the season’s romantic side. Read More
