Spring Wedding Venues in New York City

All winter we wait and wait for the day to hear the longing sounds of birds chirping, to see flowers budding through the soil, and to feel the sun through our windows. Spring is finally here! The grass is green, the trees are blooming and it’s time to put our snow boots away for good. There are so many qualities of spring that we fall in love with. March, April and May are heartwarming months to take advantage of the colorful foliage and natural beauty around us. As a soon-to-be-bride, choosing to get married in the spring is an exciting time that offers you many great options when it comes to your bridal gown, bridesmaids dresses, wedding flowers and your venue. Being from the greatest city in the world, we know that the concrete jungle may not always offer venues that have organic nature roots, but from Bride and Blossom to all of our brides, we have a few hidden gems that are perfect springtime wedding venues in NYC.

The couple met at a mutual friend’s wedding in Tulum, and while they lived on opposite coasts at the time, they enjoyed each other’s company so much they started dating long distance right away. One year later, James proposed on a romantic weekend getaway in Paris.

With their family and friends gathering from California and the UK, James and Adriana chose to tie the knot in NYC because it was right in the middle.  “Since most of our guests would be coming from out of town, we wanted a venue that would truly capture the spirit of the city,” says Adriana, “We also knew we wanted an outdoor ceremony because we both really love New York in the fall.” After hearing about Battery Gardens through a friend, the couple took a peek during one of their frequent quick trips to the city, and fell in love with it instantly.

Bridal Beauty at The Ritz-Carlton Battery Park

One of the best parts of working with Bride & Blossom is having the opportunity to hear the amazing love stories of our brides. Liza and Jesse’s story is no exception!

“Jesse’s sister Carly introduced me to Jesse at her Hanukkah party several years ago. My close friend from college grew up in the same town as Jesse and is close friends with Carly. It took Jesse almost a year to ask me out, but after our first date, the rest was history. Being married to Jesse makes me feel like the luckiest girl!”

We think she’s pretty lucky too, especially helping to create a classic ambiance for her traditional wedding at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park. Liza went with a clean, simple color palette in shades of white and ivory with blush accents that popped against the dominant neutrals she chose. With a show-stopping venue like The Ritz-Carlton, she knew better than to overdo it on décor, and let the setting add to the classy, romantic mood.

Bouquet Recipe: Something Blue

 

If you want to put a fresh spin on the old adage of “something borrowed, something blue,” put the “something blue” in your bouquet! This arrangement borrows from the pastel color palette of spring by combining light and dark blue delphinium with lavender lisianthus and white garden roses to create a dimensional arrangement that is as unforgettable as the bride.
