You just never know when your soulmate is going to walk into your life. For Christina and Derek, all it took was a chance meeting through a mutual friend. Not long after, the couple realized that they had found what many spend years looking for – true love.

B&B Blooms in Spotlight: Amnesia Rose

“Love planted a rose, and the world turned sweet.” With so many quotes about the romantic beauty attributed to the rose, the words of poet Katherine Lee Bates rank as our favorite. Not all roses are the same though, and each type has its own singular allure.

To inaugurate B&B Blooms in Spotlight, a blog series devoted to our favorite wedding flowers, we are going to talk about the amnesia rose. In recent years, this bloom has caught the admiring eye of the wedding industry and become very popular with our own brides. What makes the amnesia rose so special is its unique lavender, beige and green tones, which give the flower a lovely ‘antique’ look. For this reason, they are the perfect floral feature to showcase in a vintage style wedding.

Interview with Katie Rotio of Katherine Elizabeth Events

The saying goes, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” By the time Katie Rotio began planning for her wedding, she was enjoying success as a custom wedding stationery designer for her business Katherine Elizabeth Events.

Katie’s wedding was set to take place in Massachusetts in November – not an ideal situation for a bride-to-be who desires local fresh flowers to decorate for her special day. Instead of giving up on her floral fantasies, Katie took matters into her own hands, literally, and taught herself the art of making paper flowers. She spent night after night making roses and calla lilies to create her entire wedding décor – one bridal bouquet, eight bridesmaids bouquets, 21 boutonnieres, and over 171 single flowers for the centerpieces! Needless to say, her guests were stunned by the whole presentation.

Here at Bride & Blossom, we always say that there are no rules when it comes to choosing your wedding flowers. But it’s hard to not be swayed by the season and this is especially true in fall. Summer’s soft pastels and punchy hues give way to autumnal tones of burgundy, wine, orange, rich yellow, and deep lavender. A golden magic pervades the air making it a wonderful time to get married. Simply put, we are falling for florals and rounded up our favorite blooms and color schemes to celebrate the season!

Kate’s bright and beautiful bridal bouquet, composed of peach, coral, and blush roses with white calla lilies, can’t help but bring a smile to our faces!  The cool white lilies and natural greenery help to gracefully merge the trio of warm tones and really bring this bouquet to life.  We love how the colors pop next to her dress and pair perfectly with the lush Battery Gardens background.
