Five On-Trend Centerpieces

Centerpieces are one of the primary focal points of your wedding decor. In weddings past, stuffy, fussy floral arrangements reigned supreme, but these on-trend designs are a perfect opportunity to showcase your personal style.

1. The Rustic Romantic

Rustic Rose Centerpiece

 

Venue: Studio 450

Photographer: Carly Michelle

Flowers: Pink esther roses, seeded eucalyptus, white stock, lavender dahlia

These mid-height naturalistic arrangements are reminiscent of a walk through an enchanted forest. They accent the table without overwhelming the decor, and work well with simple color schemes.

2. The Pop Princess 

Purple Anemones

Venue: Studio 450

Flowers: Purple Anemones

Though they be but little, these purple anemones are fiercely fashionable. A single, exotic bloom that matches (or offsets) a monochromatic color scheme is both an aesthetic asset and a conversation-starter for your guests.

Ombré Floral Chuppah at Tribeca Rooftop Wedding

Tribeca Rooftop Shlomo Cohen Wedding-25

Tribeca Rooftop Shlomo Cohen Wedding-22

We created one of our most unique floral chuppahs ever, for Nicole and Mark’s romantic wedding at Tribeca Rooftop. For the traditional Jewish ceremony, bride Nicole wanted a chuppah that felt both classic and contemporary. And she definitely wanted lots of purple flowers!

Weightless, white chiffon cascaded down each of the chuppah’s four posts. We adorned the structure’s front with an ombré lush roses, hydrangea and carnations, in deep purple, fading into lavender and finishing with white. Ombré florals should have a painterly quality, which we were able to achieve by selecting beautifully-hued Ocean Song and Cool Water roses. 

Nicole carried a rounded bouquet in gorgeous shades of beautiful white and lavender with pops of green: ivory roses,, white mini-calla lilies, light purple Sweet Pea, lavender Ocean Song Roses, seeded eucalyptus and velvety Dusty Miller.

All Hearts & Flowers at Bryant Park Grill

Bryant-Park-Pink-Bridal-Bouquet

Kyna and Peter’s chic Manhattan wedding, at Bryant Park Grill, couldn’t have been any sweeter. Glamorous bride Kyna envisioned an elegant outdoor affair, shot through with pure romance.

Kyna carried a bridal bouquet of fluffy, light-pink garden roses. Bouquets composed of a single type and color of flower are always a classic choice. The groom’s boutonniere was a single, budded garden rose with an accent of greenery.

Lush reception tablescapes cast a rosy glow for the party, with blush and light-pink roses, Candy Bianca roses in the perfect shade of medium pink, and blush hydrangea. These long, low arrangements were surrounded with clusters of small white candles, floating in glass vases.

Love at Le Parker Meridien New York

sweetheart-table-le-parker-meridien

Looking for an elegant Manhattan wedding venue with a stunning view? Caroline and Jonathan’s celebration at Le Parker Meridien New York will inspire you. This French-tradition hotel offers several lovely event spaces, but floor-to-ceiling windows, overlooking Central Park, make the Estrela Penthouse something special.

Bride Caroline chose wedding flowers in a palette of light pink and cream, with touches of lavender, accented with soft green. She wanted a loose, natural look for her bridal bouquet. We included blush garden roses, light-pink roses, off-white garden roses, ivory spray roses and white sweet pea, with blush astilbe, dusty miller and jasmine vine accents.

To create an intimate, ethereal ceremony space, trios of floral arrangements, set at varying heights, featured lush, cream hydrangea, studded with lavender and light-pink roses and garden roses, and finished with cascading amaranthus, ivy and Italian ruskus. High card table and reception centerpieces were variations on this theme.

Are you as obsessed with floral chandeliers as we are? Hanging florals have taken over everyone’s Pinterest boards and we believe this wedding trend is here to stay. Luxurious hanging florals uplevel the entire look of a wedding. We were thrilled when bride Renee told us she was dreaming of a gorgeous, showstopping floral chandelier, for her wedding on Chelsea Piers’ Sunset Terrace in Manhattan.

Renee decided on an overall wedding-color palette of white, cream, blush and peach. We selected white and cream flowers with lush greens for the floral chandelier. A natural look, with lots of mixed texture, felt right for this summer wedding overlooking the Hudson River.

Glamour at The St. Regis New York

St-Regis-Wedding-Ceremony-Florals

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.
