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. Looking back at that moment ten years ago, Christina said, “We hit it off right away and have been together ever since.”

Celebrity Fall Weddings We Love

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.

 

 

What do you do when your one of the world’s top supermodels and your fiance’s baseball team has just won the World Series? You celebrate by getting married in Italy of course!

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.

Bridal Beauty at The Ritz-Carlton Battery Park

One of the best parts of working with Bride & Blossom is having the opportunity to hear the amazing love stories of our brides. Liza and Jesse’s story is no exception!

“Jesse’s sister Carly introduced me to Jesse at her Hanukkah party several years ago. My close friend from college grew up in the same town as Jesse and is close friends with Carly. It took Jesse almost a year to ask me out, but after our first date, the rest was history. Being married to Jesse makes me feel like the luckiest girl!”

We think she’s pretty lucky too, especially helping to create a classic ambiance for her traditional wedding at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park. Liza went with a clean, simple color palette in shades of white and ivory with blush accents that popped against the dominant neutrals she chose. With a show-stopping venue like The Ritz-Carlton, she knew better than to overdo it on décor, and let the setting add to the classy, romantic mood.

Perfectly Peachy at the Refinery Hotel

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.

We Love: Mini-Succulent Party Favors

Mini-Succulent-Party-Favors

We created these mini-succulent party favors for guests at our Spring Showroom Opening Party and we received so many compliments that we thought we’d share the idea. Simple to make and charming whether presented in a large grouping or singularly at place settings, these make great wedding favors or bridal shower favors. Use fresh succulents planted in soil, instead of cuttings, for party favors that are living reminders of your celebration.

  • Start with individually potted succulents. We chose all lavender-hued rosettes, for a uniform look, but these desert plants grow in a variety of shapes and soft colors. Ordering a collection of mixed succulents is usually a less costly option. Follow your floral supplier’s instructions for watering, then use a soft brush to clean off any stray soil.
