It’s not too often these days that we meet a bride who is marrying her high school sweetheart. Lauren and Jordan’s story goes back even further to when they met during childhood. Lauren recalls, “We ran in the same circles growing up but never really took an interest in each other until we were about 17. We never parted ways after that and the rest is history!”

5 Outdoor Weddings Tips & Tricks

Outdoor weddings can be a beautiful and unique setting for your special day, but these celebrations are not without their challenges — especially for flowers, which are sensitive to the elements. Read on for five tried and tested tips and tricks from the Bride and Blossom team to make your outdoor wedding a breeze.

#1 – While almost any flower *can* be used in an outdoor setting, it’s a good idea to steer clear of small, delicate flowers like ranunculus, sweet pea, and anemones for outdoor structures.

Aisle Style: Floral Arches in Twirl New York’s New Fall Issue


Two of our most romantic ceremony designs appear in Twirl New York’s new issue.

For an enchanting, Brooklyn waterfront wedding, an arch of wisteria and curly willow (#3) held decadent clusters of pink, cream and white flowers. Ruskus vines, entwined with dendrobium orchids trailed down the arch’s side to a moss base. Kris Rae’s beautiful photo captures the garden-like, natural concept of our design, as well as a moment of pure joy and love.

A rustic-branch chuppah (#5), adorned with  the lushest, white hydrangea blossoms, framed a traditional Jewish ceremony at a decadent, Hudson-Valley wedding, photographed by Ryan Brenizer. Aisle Style is a must-see if you’re looking for wedding inspiration – so many gorgeous, creative ideas for walking down the isle of your dreams.

Blue & White Bridal Bouquet Recipe

Blue Bridal Bouquet Recipe Westhampton Bath Tennis Dear Stacey Wedding Photography(1)

A simple bouquet recipe today, perfect for a summer wedding. We created this fresh, blue-and-white bridal bouquet for a bride getting married by the sea in Westhampton. Flawless, white Tibet roses, white Gerbera daisies and bluish-white hydrangea were hand-tied with a white-satin ribbon. Simple, sweet and richly-textured, this bridal bouquet looked right at home against white sand and blue sky. Beach weddings make us wish summer in the Hamptons would never, ever end!

Wedding Photographer Ryan Brenizer and the Brenizer Method


When Ryan Brenizer photographed a wedding we did at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, we were struck by the artistry of his work. His talent for catching breathtaking, candid moments is obvious and his dynamic compositions capture both motion and emotion. American Photo magazine named Brenizer as one of the Top Ten Wedding Photographers.

Brenizer accomplishes his unique style by taking shallow depth-of-field images with a fast telephoto lens. He describes this look as “bokeh panoramas.” It’s come to be known as the Brenizer Method, and is now sought and used by phoptographers all over the world. If you would like to learn more and maybe give it a try yourself, Brenizer did a Reddit AMA (“ask me anything”). He offers great advice for budding wedding professionals:
