Bouquet Recipe: Sweet Succulents

Sweet Succulent Bouquet Recipe

This bouquet recipe from Amanda Reppond’s wedding at the Picnic House in Prospect Park uses a classic pink and green color scheme to achieve a preppy, elegant style with a unique twist. The unexpected pairing of miniature succulents with traditional white roses, accented by splashes of pink and lime from green viburnum and pink lisianthus, make this bouquet as unforgettable as Amanda’s special day.

Choosing your Wedding Flowers to Complement your Venue

If anyone has ever planned a wedding before or helped plan a wedding, you would know that there’s always some sort of vibe, theme or feeling that the couple wants to achieve. As a wedding designer, I often meet couples who are still in the process of establishing the overall look and feel of their wedding, yet torn as to which direction to head in with their flowers. With so many inspirations available these days (Pinterest, Instagram, Google, etc.), it’s easy to get overwhelmed with ideas and want to do a little bit of everything. My advice to couples is to start with the venue! Your venue will automatically set the tone. Your job (and our job) is to then complement the space with your décor.

Bridesmaid Bouquet Photos: Gather Your Girls

pink bridesmaids bouquets

One wedding photo that always makes us smile is the bridesmaids’ bouquet shot. Being surrounded by best friends and sisters is a beautiful moment for brides and good wedding photographers make sure to capture it. Formal wedding party portraits are classic, and playful or candid pictures are perfect for capturing personalities. But we have a soft spot for pictures of brides and bridesmaids posing close together, holding out bouquets to form a giant cluster of flowers.
We suggest asking your wedding photographer to take three types of bridesmaids photos: classic wedding-party portraits suitable for framing, shots that show off your wedding flowers, such as the clustered poses pictured here, and some wildcard photos of you and your girls being silly. Group leaps and jumps are popular for capturing that exhilarating wedding joy. Faux sexy-serious poses are also entertaining. What you want is wedding photos that reflect the spirit of your particular friendships. But if your group is having trouble letting loose, ask your wedding photographer for suggestions. Being directed to twirl, form a kick-line or throw all bouquets into the air will probably result in lots of laughter. And those may turn out to be your favorites.

Romantic Floral Arch at The Liberty Warehouse

Liberty-Warehouse-Ceremony3

We created one of our most romantic floral arches for this wedding at The Liberty Warehouse on the Brooklyn waterfront. We loved designing all the floral decor for this stunning bride’s ceremony and celebration, but the arch that framed the couple’s vows, against a skyline view and sunset, is especially close to our hearts.

Beginning with a concept of a natural, garden-like structure with contemporary and romantic clusters of flowers, we constructed the arch with curly willow and wisteria branches. We first chose lush, decadent blush and cream roses, white spray spray roses and hydrangea, and blush stock. Dendrobium orchids trailed down the arch’s side, entwined with Italian and Israeli ruskus. Aisle decor was composed of clusters of the same flowers, all set in moss.

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.
