With its golden glow and rich colors, fall casts a romantic allure that cannot be denied. Even celebrities succumb to the season’s intoxicating spell and plan their weddings from late September through early December. Just recently, two star weddings caught our eye – Kate Upton and Verlander and Colton Haynes and Jeff Leatham. While these weddings are drastically different in style, they are both heartfelt expressions that celebrate each couple’s love and personality.

Cancun, Mexico. Spring Break, 2008. It was Alyson’s senior year of college, and this was her last hurrah before graduation. One night, she and her girlfriends were out at the hotel bar when Gary and his friends approached and asked if they could sit together. Alyson offered to share her seat with Gary, who was celebrating being in preseason for Major League Soccer with the rest of the team. The gang shared in a wild night of partying, and Alyson and Gary said goodbye assuming they’d never see each other again. Read More
On the East bank of the Hudson River, thirty miles north of New York City, lies the beautiful historic settlement of Chappaqua. Founded by the Quakers in the 1780s, Chappaqua is home to a multitude of stunning historical buildings, including the timelessly elegant Crabtree’s Kittle House, where Ryan and Darren Mooney were married in impeccable style this past November.

Ryan and Darren reside in Boston, where they met during their second year of law school. “We were both at a mutual friend’s birthday party where I learned Darren was moving not far from where I lived,” recalls Ryan, “I must have had liquid courage because I jumped at the opportunity to show him the neighborhood. It was very awkward, to say the least…we went to the gym and then Trader Joe’s! It stuck though, and we’ve been together ever since!” Read More
With fall in full swing, it seems that everyone is embracing Apple picking, pumpkin lattes (pumpkin everything for that matter), sweater capes and of course fall colors. One major fall component that seems to be lacking this year is the traditional fall weddings.
Our fall brides have always been eager to embrace the fall season by incorporating the rich fall colors, seasonal blooms and sneaking some mini pumpkins in there somewhere. However, this year, were truly seeing a shift, in that brides seems to be reaching for the softer side of fall.
So what does this mean? It’s less of the rich fall colors like shades of red, orange, amber, browns and hints of yellow and more of the creams, blush, greens and a pop of burgundy for good measure. Read More
This pop-art inspired flowerwall, for a rooftop wedding at Manhattan’s Studio 450, was truly like nothing we’ve ever done before!
Grooms Manjil and Brad wanted a “jaw-dropping,” one-of-a-kind piece of living, floral artwork, to serve as backdrop for their tradition-infused ceremony. We used vibrant gerbera daisies, in a rainbow of shades, from deep red, fuchsia and orange, to yellow, peach, pink and white. Vivid hues invoked India’s floral wedding-ceremony decor. While the striking, contemporary pattern, set against a skyline sunset, made the moment very NYC.
The Picnic House in Prospect Park is one of Brooklyn’s most beloved wedding venues. The park’s natural beauty provides wonderful views and a lovely setting for wedding photos, any season of the year. The Picnic House was certainly the perfect place for the vintage-bohemian wedding flowers we created for one beautiful Brooklyn bride.
Mini succulents played a starring role in the bridal bouquet. The fresh green of the succulents and viburnum played perfectly against pink lisianthus and white garden roses and spray roses. Another mini succulent became a striking groom’s boutonniere. Ranunculus, in two shades of pink, gave bridesmaids’ bouquets a look of their own. Read More
