Lorenza & Pete Wedding – Bride – New York Botanical Garden – by The Hons
Part 2: Wedding Dress & Personals
“I knew there would be so many gorgeous dresses that I could love,” recalls Lorenza. “I narrowed down one dress on Kleinfeld’s website before going in.” At her appointment, she was presented with three dresses including the dress she found online. Lorenza looks back and says with a laugh, “Sure enough, when I tried on that dress, I knew it was “the one. I was undoubtedly Kleinfeld’s fastest sale.”
She chose a striking trumpet silhouette gown by Israeli designer Pnina Tornai. The dress featured exquisite floral lace overlay, delicate cap sleeves, and an elegant chapel train. She complemented her look with an understated, cathedral length veil made of chiffon, also by Pnina Tornai, and Badgley Mischka shoes. Read More

Proposal & Planning
In a time when casual dating via social apps is like a sport, Lorenza wanted something with more substance. Looking back, she says, “It was the busiest time of my professional career. I was a producer at CNN covering the 2016 election. Despite my busy work-life, I knew I was ready to meet someone special.” So upon the suggestion of a colleague, she joined, with some apprehension, the paid dating website, Match.com. Read More

Do you know which flower to give to friends and family born in November? Chrysanthemum, the month’s designated birth flower! Festive, eye-catching, and versatile, it’s also a wonderful bloom to incorporate into fall weddings. From bouquets to wedding cakes, we’ve rounded up pretty floral décor ideas with chrysanthemums, this month’s BB Bloom in Spotlight.
Chrysanthemums (commonly known as “mums”) were first cultivated in China where the flower was documented in writings as early as 15th century BC. Around 400 AD, the bloom was introduced to Japan. So taken by the flower’s beauty, the Japanese adopted it as the emperor’s crest and official seal. After being introduced to Europe in the 17th century, the chrysanthemum received its present day name, which derives from the Greek words “chrysos” meaning gold (its original color) and “anthemon” meaning flower. Cultivation over the years has produced various types and colors including white, red, and purple. In the language of flowers, the chrysanthemum represents longevity, fidelity, joy, and optimism. With attributes like these, it’s no wonder couples want the flower close by on their wedding day! Read More
