Summer pastels, under sunny Long Island skies, made this Glen Cove Mansion wedding a stunner. Christa and Bruno are head over heels in love and it shows. We’re obsessed with Lydia Campbell’s photos of this once in a lifetime day! Enjoy all the sweet moments of pure joy and the most perfect wedding weather. Here are all the details on the romantic, midsummer bouquets and floral decor we created for this sweet couple’s ceremony and reception.
Christa’s classic color palette, of blush, pink, cream and ivory, flattered her blue-eyed, platinum-blonde beauty. An elegant, hand-tied, bridal bouquet of ivory Vendela roses looked chic against her white dress. We embellished a satin-ribbon bouquet wrap with a lace overlay and a straight line of pearls. Bruno’s boutonniere was a single, flawless, ivory rose. Read More
Sherry and Auren met the old-fashioned way, at a friend’s birthday party in New York City. “After the first date, both of us knew this was it,” Sherry told us. Auren proposed several months later on the picturesque Pont des Arts (lover’s bridge) in Paris.
The couple shared a vision of an understated, contemporary celebration, against a backdrop of classic, timeless elegance and romance. Where better than St. Regis New York? This recently renovated and redesigned, grand hotel preserves the storied feel of Old New York.
For the traditional Jewish ceremony, we created a four posted chuppah, elegantly draped in white chiffon, with a lush line of florals along the top. Candlelit blush, cream and lavender rose petals lined both sides of the aisle. Gilt chandeliers and soaring ceilings in The St. Regis Roof, a Beaux Arts Ballroom, called for tall, couture-look centerpieces. Flowers including Cool Water and Ocean Song roses were carefully arranged to create a chic ombre effect, from cream to blush, to pale pink, to deeper lavender. Read More
When I designed my first Chuppah, I loved the unique opportunity this was to create a sacred place of love and unity. Not being Jewish, this was not a tradition I was familiar with, so designing it was also a wonderfully eye-opening cultural experience. Naturally I love celebrations, but I have a special place in my heart for all things wedding.
In case you do not know, the Chuppah is featured at traditional Jewish weddings. According to Chabad.org,
The chuppah is a tapestry attached to the tops of four poles. The word chuppah means covering or protection, and is intended as a roof or covering for the bride and groom at their wedding.
This just in… One of the coolest chuppah structures we have ever seen! It was from a wedding at the New York Public Library. It’s made of books and hanging light bulbs from the center. We can’t imagine how much time was spent on creating this. Hopefully the books were recycled!
