By the time the rings were exchanged, it was clear to everyone that Yani and Divinity had put together the ultimate mixed tape of love songs for their ceremony. Yani looks back and says, “Finally, after the kiss, we exited into cocktail hour to ‘Is This Love’ by Bob Marley!” Here, she shares the final chapter in their Real BB Wedding Story.

Part 4: Card Table, Centerpieces, & Hanging Floral Dance Floor Installation

We always tell our couples not to overlook the card table – it’s the first thing guests see heading into the reception and helps set the tone for the rest of the wedding. Yani and Divinity completely ran with the idea in welcoming their family and friends. The traditional décor fixture took shape in a jaw-dropping tree made of wisteria and birch branches adorned with roses, ranunculus, camellia greenery, and moss. “We had heart-shaped origami place cards, inspired by our connection to Japan, suspended from the branches waiting for our guests,” Yani says.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: It’s Going To Be A Royal Wedding Like Never Before

After much speculation, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement. Prince Harry kept the proposal traditional and intimate, getting down on one knee over a chicken dinner at their cottage. Taken by surprise, Meghan said “yes” before he even had a chance to present the the ring, which was custom-made using his mother Princess Diana’s diamonds, and a central stone from Botswana, a place of special meaning to the humanitarian couple.

We couldn’t be more excited! And we’re certainly not alone on this, but Prince Harry and Meghan come across as different in comparison to other famous royal pairings. Perhaps it’s because he is the younger, more rebellious prince who got caught doing the same stupid things we did in college. Maybe it’s because she’s an American actress we already know from a popular television show. They seem relatable and down to earth, more like a couple you’d see nestled in a booth at a pub than seated side-by-side on thrones.

Falling For Florals: Gorgeous Blooms For The Season

Here at Bride & Blossom, we always say that there are no rules when it comes to choosing your wedding flowers. But it’s hard to not be swayed by the season and this is especially true in fall. Summer’s soft pastels and punchy hues give way to autumnal tones of burgundy, wine, orange, rich yellow, and deep lavender. A golden magic pervades the air making it a wonderful time to get married. Simply put, we are falling for florals and rounded up our favorite blooms and color schemes to celebrate the season!

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.

Blush Bouquets Under the Brooklyn Bridge

image

New York City brides, get ready to be inspired! We loved bringing this bride’s vision of classic, feminine wedding flowers to life in a color palette of blush, cream and white. A reception venue right on the Brooklyn waterfront in Williamsburg gave the celebration (and the photos!) a stunning skyline-view backdrop.

To create rounded, compact bouquets, we used petal-dense roses, garden roses and ranunculus. The sweet flower girl carried a pomander ball of carnations. Lush, tall centerpieces set the mood at Giando on the Water. Loosely arranged white hydrangea and ranunculus, blush stock and garden roses and cream roses were loosely arranged in trumpet vases. Cascading burgundy amaranthus and candles in crystal added over the top romance.
