There is that one moment during a wedding when the flower girl steals the show. All guests turn to see the sweetie in her adorable dress, sprinkling petals as she bashfully walks down the aisle. We love when one of our brides includes a flower girl in her bridal party. She adds a touch of charm and lightness to the ceremony. In addition to a basket full of petals, she may carry a mini-version of the bridesmaid bouquet or wear a pretty floral crown. For the bride who plans to have a flower girl or two, here are some of our favorite looks from Real BB Weddings to use for inspiration. Read More
Our new intern brought her cute, instant camera to the studio and took these shots of phalaenopsis orchids. Days later, we spotted one at flower class. This is the latest version of Fuji’s candy-colored Instax Mini. Simple to use, with a pop-out lens and included strap, it’s the perfect gift for a flower girl. I’m going to pick one up to surprise my four-year old daughter. She loves taking pictures (and posing!). Maybe this will reduce her obsession with my iPhone… too much to hope?
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. Read More
Happy Mother’s Day to all our beautiful brides who walked down the aisle with their own son or daughter as ring bearer or flower girl! We always love to see the ways that children are included in wedding ceremonies and celebrations. It’s especially touching to see kids escort their moms to the altar.
To all the brides who got married with their children at their side, all the brides who became step-moms when they said their vows, all our brides who are now moms or moms-to-be… have a beautiful Mother’s Day!
A ceremony in snowy Central Park, followed by a sophisticated reception at the fabled 21 Club, made for a timeless Manhattan wedding, straight out of a classic movie. Landmark New York City venues add a sense of history and tradition which perfectly suited this beautiful bride’s tastes.
The bride envisioned classic, elegant flowers for her white winter wedding. We created her bridal bouquet with off-white garden roses and white phalaenopsis orchids, then wrapped the stems in satin ribbon and finished with a glamorous crystal brooch. Isn’t the above photo of the bride and her adorable flower-girl daughter with their bouquets just exquisite? The magical hush of Central Park in the snow was perfectly captured and you can see what a special moment this must have been. And our bride was a brave girl– that last day of January was one of the winter’s coldest days. She doesn’t even look like she noticed! Read More
Flower girls scattering petals from moss baskets captured hearts, in a wedding at The Liberty Warehouse, in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Flower girls never fail to charm us. Photographer Kris Rae captured the joy, pride (and shyness!) that go along with this important role.
Moss-covered baskets complemented the romantic-garden aisle decor we created with roses, hydrangea, spray roses, stock and seeded eucalyptus, set in moss. If you’re planning a similar wedding theme and you like this flower-girl idea, ask your wedding florist to recreate these petal baskets.
