When Pantone named “Classic Blue” as its 2020 Color of the Year, we, admittedly, had mixed emotions. From a floral designer’s standpoint, the announcement presented quite a challenge as there are very few flowers that are naturally blue. At the same time, blue is a timeless, versatile, and emotionally charged color – qualities that make it a perfect fit for weddings. This notion is furthered when we consider what Pantone said in support of its choice.

Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold to a new era.

A romantic air takes over New York City during the winter months. Perhaps it’s the atmospheric lighting or chilling temps, but everyday sights have a dreamy, cinematic quality about them. Couples planning to say “I Do” this season are especially lucky because they can take advantage of the wintry city scenes to create once in-a-lifetime snapshots.

This past holiday season, a handful of high-profile ladies took advantage of their vacation time by walking down the aisle. From the gorgeous gowns and luxury venues to the floral decor and after parties, each of these stars in the worlds of entertainment and sports made their special day truly remarkable. We are always up for a good celebrity wedding recap and decided to take a look at the famous brides who rang in the New Year by saying “I Do.”

Hilary Duff

Our first famous bride to tie the knot over the holidays is Hilary Duff. The ‘Younger’ actress married singer and record producer Matthew Komas in an intimate ceremony at their L.A. home just before Christmas. The internet was abuzz when Hilary posted photos of her custom gown by Jenny Packham. Simple yet bold, the design featured a fishtail silhouette (100 buttons adorned the back!) paired with structured shoulders and cape-like sleeves. For their at-home nuptials, the couple worked with planner Yifat Oren of Oren & Co and floral design studio Hollyflora to create a romantic, dreamy atmosphere expressed though organic greenery and soft pink, plum, and off-white florals.
