Watching two people start their new life together is one of the best things about weddings. And let’s not forget about the post-ceremony celebrations! For their Guastavino’s reception, Madalyn and Jon underscored the venue’s magnificent interior with décor that was high-impact, yet sophisticated. Still, the night’s mood was joyous and full of energy with guests partying well into the late hours. Here’s the final chapter of Madalyn and Jon’s Bride & Blossom wedding story.

Part 4: Reception, Card Table, and Dance Floor

After Madalyn and Jon said “I do”, festivities got underway with a cocktail hour. “For the reception, I knew that I wanted to have the ceremony flowers suspended over the dance floor,” Madalyn says. While everyone was busy raising their glasses to the newlyweds, the Lucite chuppah was removed to reveal a gorgeous hanging floral chandelier that casted an enchanted air over the rest of the evening.

Beautiful Ideas With Delphinium Wedding Flowers

We’re not surprised that the delphinium has emerged as a favorite wedding bloom with our brides this season. Also known as the line flower and ‘larkspur’, the delphinium has a long stock covered with tiny blossoms making it the perfect accent for a centerpiece or bouquet. As one of the few true blue flowers in nature, it grows in a spectrum of blue shades ranging from pale and whispery to dark and intense.

The flower’s name originates from the Greek word “delphis” meaning dolphin. This description refers to its closed flower buds, which resemble a dolphin’s nose. In the language of flowers, the delphinium symbolizes an open heart, overall positivity, and fun and cheerfulness. Essentially, every quality you want on hand as you start a new life with the one you love most!

Bride & Blossom Featured Bride Marianna On Her Floating Chuppah

One of the best things about being a floral designer in New York City is working with brides who incorporate their own special traditions into their wedding day. The chuppah, a significant feature of a Jewish ceremony symbolizing the home of the soon-to-be married couple, lets a bride be creative and express their personality and style. This week, we talked with our featured bride Marianna about her jaw-dropping chuppah and how she felt on her wedding day.

Part 2: Gown & Personals

When we asked Marianna about saying yes to the dress, she told us, “I knew I wanted a classic Vera Wang sweetheart ball gown. I only tried on four dresses, and the last dress was the one I went with. I immediately fell in love with the classic design and long bridal train. I knew it was the perfect dress because I felt like a princess.” Not many brides-to-be have it this easy in the hunt for a wedding dress. But take just one look at Marianna wearing her breathtaking Dagmar gown by Vera Wang and you can tell that it was meant to be. She completed her bridal attire with a sweeping cathedral veil, also from Vera Wang’s Iconic Wedding Collection.
