South Street Seaport Wedding on The Knot

By:

The-knot-chris-leary-weddings

Today on The Knot, a wedding we did back in 2012. What a sweet surprise to see our beautiful bride, with her bouquet of champagne roses, white Eskimo roses, peonies and anemones, and to remember that stunning skyline wedding cake. Unfortunately, the downtown Manhattan wedding venue with that beautiful view, Bridgewaters, has since closed due to damage from Hurricane Sandy. Let’s look back on this South Street Seaport celebration as a reminder of resilience, that essential quality shared by every great city and every great marriage.

Quintessential Manhattan Wedding: Central Park & 21 Club

By:

Central-Park_Bride-and-Flowergirl

A ceremony in snowy Central Park, followed by a sophisticated reception at the fabled 21 Club, made for a timeless Manhattan wedding, straight out of a classic movie. Landmark New York City venues add a sense of history and tradition which perfectly suited this beautiful bride’s tastes.

The bride envisioned classic, elegant flowers for her white winter wedding. We created her bridal bouquet with off-white garden roses and white phalaenopsis orchids, then wrapped the stems in satin ribbon and finished with a glamorous crystal brooch. Isn’t the above photo of the bride and her adorable flower-girl daughter with their bouquets just exquisite? The magical hush of Central Park in the snow was perfectly captured and you can see what a special moment this must have been. And our bride was a brave girl– that last day of January was one of the winter’s coldest days. She doesn’t even look like she noticed!

Warm Reception at The Nomad Hotel

By:

A sunlit ceremony in Jefferson Market Garden, a historic outdoor venue in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, and a luxe reception at The Nomad Hotel, added up to a wedding as sweet as it was chic.

Warm, romantic wedding flowers matched the day’s mood. We created bouquets, centerpieces and high floral arrangements in a palette of blush, ivory, light pink and white. At the bride’s request, we took extra care selecting blush blossoms for her bridal bouquet; she envisioned carrying flowers the color of ballet slippers. And for elegant, feminine bridal hair, we created a bridal hair pin with blush and ivory spray rose blooms, accented by a hint of seeded eucalyptus.

A Wedding at The Picnic House in Prospect Park

By:

Picnic-House-wedding-in-Prospect-Park

The Picnic House in Prospect Park is one of Brooklyn’s most beloved wedding venues. The park’s natural beauty provides wonderful views and a lovely setting for wedding photos, any season of the year. The Picnic House was certainly the perfect place for the vintage-bohemian wedding flowers we created for one beautiful Brooklyn bride.

Mini succulents played a starring role in the bridal bouquet. The fresh green of the succulents and viburnum played perfectly against pink lisianthus and white garden roses and spray roses. Another mini succulent became a striking groom’s boutonniere. Ranunculus, in two shades of pink, gave bridesmaids’ bouquets a look of their own.

By:

Plaza-Hotel-wedding-centerpieces

The Plaza Hotel is a classic New York City wedding venue, located right on Central Park, in the center of Manhattan. What a perfect place to create a bride’s dream of romantic, elegant wedding flowers!

If you follow us on Instagram, and watched all week as our studio filled up with over 10,000 amnesia, quicksand, mondial and vendela roses, now you know what we were doing with all those beautiful blossoms!

We loved creating dramatic high table centerpieces, bouquets and other floral decor with the roses’ sophisticated color palette of blush, cream, taupe and mauve. For the traditional ceremony chuppah, altar and sweetheart table, we incorporated lush white hydrangea and white phalaenopsis and dendrobium orchids.

Wedding at The Liberty Warehouse: Part 2

By:

The Liberty Warehouse is one of our favorite Brooklyn wedding venues and, as you enjoy photos of this gorgeous wedding, you’ll see why that’s true. Sweeping waterfront city views, wide-open indoor and outdoor space and antique, industrial charm make this a truly special place.

Last week, we shared details of the romantic floral arch we created for this ceremony. The same lush garden theme was carried through all the florals.

For an organic, cascading bridal bouquet in classic white and cream, we used standard roses, garden roses and spray roses, dendrobium orchids, lisianthus and stephanotis.

Bridesmaids’ bouquets were composed of blush and cream roses with white freesia. Table centerpieces were classic and romantic, in the same delicate, feminine color palette of blush, white, cream and pale green. Low centerpieces featured exquisite phalaenopsis orchids. We added drama to the high centerpieces with cascading dendrobium orchids and amaranthus.
