Peach Juliet Garden Roses in the Bride & Blossom studio
Peach, the sophisticated cousin of that ubiquitous wedding color — pink. This often-overlooked color can add a delicate touch of femininity to your wedding decor without going over-the-top. It works brilliantly as the subtle pop in a neutral color palette, and is brought to life with the addition of vibrant greenery. At a recent Bride & Blossom wedding held at Manhattan’s Refinery Hotel, we saw this color take center stage as the star of a particularly sophisticated soiree. The cosmopolitan venue provided the perfect backdrop for hues of peach, ivory, and cream with lush green accents.
Since the beginnings of Bride & Blossom, we have had the privilege of working with so many extraordinary venues, ranging from intimate urban spaces like Studio 450 to sprawling rustic-romantic landscapes like Blue Hill at Stone Barns. One of our favorite locations by far has been the Village Club of Sands Point, at 1916 Italian Renaissance-style mansion built in upstate NY by Issac Guggenheim.
What makes this space special is not only its inherent beauty, but its ability to be completely transformed into an absolute fairytale with the right touches. Our mother-of-the-bride said it best: “You all not only met, but exceeded our expectations for the day! You transformed the Village Club of Sands Point Mansion, which is already a beautiful setting for a wedding, into something that was magical and truly memorable.” Read More
Today’s bouquet recipe combines two types of white orchids with white and cream roses to create a multi-dimensional, textured bouquet in the palest wedding colors. The perfect blend of tradition with a touch of personality that is utterly New York City, this arrangement is as unique as the bride who carried it.
Bride Cheryl Fradin and groom Adam Caviezel have one of those old-school New York City love stories that most people will tell you is the stuff of fiction.
“Adam and I met at a mutual friend’s birthday party at Houston Hall. He caught my eye, and we started talking. He got right to the point and asked me if I had a boyfriend. When I said no, he asked if I was at the party with anyone. Adam took me out dancing when the party was over, and we both felt an instant connection. Five weeks later we were in love and inseparable, one year after that we were engaged, and one year after that we were preparing to walk down the aisle! Every day we thank our lucky stars that we walked into each other’s lives.”
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.
