Heading into the holiday season, we couldn’t think of anyone better to have as our featured bride for December than Lorenza. She and Pete celebrated saying “I do” on an enchanted winter’s day at the New York Botanical Garden. Here, Lorenza shares the first part of their love story.

Proposal & Planning 

In a time when casual dating via social apps is like a sport, Lorenza wanted something with more substance. Looking back, she says, “It was the busiest time of my professional career. I was a producer at CNN covering the 2016 election. Despite my busy work-life, I knew I was ready to meet someone special.” So upon the suggestion of a colleague, she joined, with some apprehension, the paid dating website, Match.com.

When we think of winter wedding flowers, we often jump to an all-white color scheme, while in fact there is a wide range of flowers in many colors available in winter to suit any floral design vision.  Amaryllis, Anemones, Orchids, Hydrangeas, and Peonies are some of the most popular winter blooms, as well as many varieties of Roses.

Even if you’re committed to an all-white winter wedding, mixing and matching shades of white can make for a stunning array of tones, textures and shapes, from antique ivories to soft creams to classic white-as-snow.  Silvery accents of Dusty Miller or Silver Brunia make for beautiful finishes for a monochrome winter wonderland look.

On Wednesdays, We Like Pink

According to color psychologists, seeing the color pink triggers feelings of being nurtured and understood. Pink calms the fiery passion of red, creating a more gentle and loving energy.  “Pink really lends itself to weddings and we see a lot of it, especially with pale pink being on trend,” says Creative Director Lindsay Saltz, “What’s so great about it is it’s fun and romantic while still being sophisticated – if done right…We get a lot of grooms who get nervous when their fiancée will take out the pink inspiration board or have an all-pink Pinterest board.”

 

Pink can be tricky – if you push too much pink against a poorly matched venue or combine too many tones and textures, things can quickly go from charming to childish. “Our goal is to make sure the wedding doesn’t look like Barbie’s birthday party so we’re super careful in what we use it in, how much of it we use and the shades we select when we design the wedding.”

Outdoor weddings can be a beautiful and unique setting for your special day, but these celebrations are not without their challenges — especially for flowers, which are sensitive to the elements. Read on for five tried and tested tips and tricks from the Bride and Blossom team to make your outdoor wedding a breeze.
