Lorenza & Pete Wedding – Wedding Party – Ceremony – Church of St. Paul the Apostle – by The Hons
“I’ve always loved the tradition that you go to a church and get married,” says Bride & Blossom Featured Bride Lorenza. “Both Pete and I are Catholic and our faith is very important to us. We both have nostalgic memories of going to church as children and wanted the rituals and songs to be part of our wedding.”
Part 3: Ceremony
It’s not uncommon these days for a couple to have both their ceremony and reception at the venue, especially in New York City. At the same time, the city is full of beautiful churches ideal for a religious ceremony. One in particular stood out to Lorenza. “When I was at CNN, my work schedule was pretty busy,” she says. “The Church of St. Paul the Apostle was just a block away from my office, so I would go there for mass when time allowed. And every time I walked through the doors, I was overtaken by its beauty.” Read More

One of the most beautiful and well-known species in the flower kingdom, is hydrangea. Hydrangea originated in many regions of the world, including North and South America, Europe and Asia. Now worldwide, they are very famous and a popular flower grown in gardens, while also being used at special occasions and weddings. Offering a variety of species in the kingdom, it is most famous for its hydrangea and Dutch hydrangea variety.

Peach Juliet Garden Roses in the Bride & Blossom studio
Peach, the sophisticated cousin of that ubiquitous wedding color — pink. This often-overlooked color can add a delicate touch of femininity to your wedding decor without going over-the-top. It works brilliantly as the subtle pop in a neutral color palette, and is brought to life with the addition of vibrant greenery. At a recent Bride & Blossom wedding held at Manhattan’s Refinery Hotel, we saw this color take center stage as the star of a particularly sophisticated soiree. The cosmopolitan venue provided the perfect backdrop for hues of peach, ivory, and cream with lush green accents.
Recently, we had the pleasure of working with one of our new favorite photographers, Le Image, at one of our all-time favorite venues, The Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn. With such a great team assembled, there was no doubt that bride Delaine Duncan’s wedding was going to be exceptionally stunning.
A simple color palette of monochromatic whites, with accents of subtle greenery and the occasional red rose, created a mood that carried through the evening. From details like the delicate lace wrap on the bride’s bouquet to the unique floral arch we constructed for the ceremony, the day was picture-perfect from beginning to end. Read More
Carats & Cake featured the picture perfect wedding of my dear friends Aaron and Lindsay. What could be better than designing wedding flowers for a couple I introduced?
Castle Hotel & Spa, one of Westchester’s poshest venues, was the perfect setting for the outdoor ceremony under a fairytale floral arch and a glamorous reception surrounded by high and low centerpieces and arrangements in shades of purple. The romantic bridal bouquet was composed of rare Mentha roses from South Africa, in the most delicate shade of lavender. I loved Lindsay’s taste and vision so much that we hired her as Bride & Blosssom’s new Creative Director! Read More
