Wedding Flowers in Paris With Karen Tran

 

Last year I traveled to Paris to take part in Karen Tran’s Master Class. Today I came across a video and thought I’d share! It was just amazing to meet and work with Karen. Her floral designs have been a major influence and inspiration to our whole team. Her wedding flowers are created with a sense of lavish romance that really casts a spell.

You might recognize the lush tablescapes and ceremony decor we created for a styled shoot, from our gallery Charming Chateau. With photos by Christina Federova.

The shoot took place in Paris at Chateau de Bouffemont. You can learn more about Karen Tran’s Master Classes, and find some of the most beautiful wedding-flower inspiration, at The Floral Experience.

Ombré Floral Chuppah at Tribeca Rooftop Wedding

Tribeca Rooftop Shlomo Cohen Wedding-25

Tribeca Rooftop Shlomo Cohen Wedding-22

We created one of our most unique floral chuppahs ever, for Nicole and Mark’s romantic wedding at Tribeca Rooftop. For the traditional Jewish ceremony, bride Nicole wanted a chuppah that felt both classic and contemporary. And she definitely wanted lots of purple flowers!

Weightless, white chiffon cascaded down each of the chuppah’s four posts. We adorned the structure’s front with an ombré lush roses, hydrangea and carnations, in deep purple, fading into lavender and finishing with white. Ombré florals should have a painterly quality, which we were able to achieve by selecting beautifully-hued Ocean Song and Cool Water roses. 

Nicole carried a rounded bouquet in gorgeous shades of beautiful white and lavender with pops of green: ivory roses,, white mini-calla lilies, light purple Sweet Pea, lavender Ocean Song Roses, seeded eucalyptus and velvety Dusty Miller.

Mood Board: Castle Garden Wedding

Mood Board-Castle-Garden

After meeting a bride-to-be and talking with her about initial thoughts and inspirations, we put together mood boards and color palettes. Today, we’re sharing a mood board for an outdoor wedding, held in the gardens of a castle venue. Ceremony inspiration images, of a lavish floral arrangement set in a stone urn, and a grass aisle thickly strewn with petals, set a romantic, extravagant tone, perfect for this setting.

Starting with a soft color palette of peach, ivory, blush and green, we added depth by choosing flowers that also incorporated slightly more saturated tones. Peach Juliet garden roses deepen to coral at their centers. Butter-yellow parrot tulips pick up the warm tones present in cream hydrangea and stock, and ivory garden roses. Pale blush comes into play with ranunculus, and with the outer petals of pink tree peonies, while that flower’s deeper-pink, inner petals surround a yellow center. Italian ruskus, jasmine vines, seeded eucalyptus and geranium leaf added a range of medium to dark greens, and lush textures, evocative of a summer garden in fullest bloom.

Wedding Flower Inspiration From Sweden’s Royal Wedding

Wedding-Flowers-Swedens-Royal-Wedding

Sweden’s Prince Carl Phillip married Sofia Hellqvist this weekend at Stockholm’s Royal Palace. Who can resist a royal wedding? Lavish settings and nearly-unlimited budgets make royal weddings a wonderful source of wedding inspiration. Watching a bride become an actual princess seems to prove that fairy tales do come true. Of course, what transfixed us about Sweden’s big event was the wedding flowers.

Flower walls of vibrant pink blossoms served as backdrops for both the ceremony altar and the head table at the reception. Outside, extravagant, deeper pink flowers decorated stone columns at the front of the palace. The bridal bouquet included cream and coral garden roses with sprigs of myrtle. Cuttings from the same plant have been carried and worn in the hair of Sweden’s royal brides for over a century.

Wedding at The Liberty Warehouse: Part 2

Fusco_Liberty_warehouse_bridesmaids1
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.
