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.” Read More
Get a sneak peak at a recent Brooklyn Winery wedding, today on photographer Rima Brindamour’s blog.
Bride Margarita’s bouquet included ivory and blush garden roses, white sweet pea and stock and light-pink ranunculus, with blue thistle and bright pink dahlias. Doesn’t she look stunning in that lace dress by Ivy & Aster? We love how the cobalt ribbon she chose, for her bouquet’s finishing touch, matches groom Jose’s suit. Click through and you’ll see it also matches her lovely shoes!
We can’t wait to share more photos from this sweet couple’s celebration.
Last year I traveled to Paris to take part in Karen Tran’s Master Class. Today I came across a video and thought I’d share! It was just amazing to meet and work with Karen. Her floral designs have been a major influence and inspiration to our whole team. Her wedding flowers are created with a sense of lavish romance that really casts a spell.
Bride-to-be Lauren asked us to create a floral crown for her engagement shoot and we were more than happy to say yes! Flower crowns are wildly popular with chic brides right now. Wearing blooms close to the face brings out every woman’s natural beauty and evokes tradition; adorning hair with fresh flowers, for weddings and festivals, was just as on-trend in ancient Greece and Medieval Europe as it is today.
We got to know Lauren’s lovely sense of style while working on designs for her big day next June. For this engagement session, she envisioned blush roses and shared an inspiration image from a gorgeous French wedding. Instead of standard roses, we suggested delicate, light-pink spray roses, and ethereal baby’s breath. Cool-toned, seeded eucalyptus complimented the intricate, ivory petals of tiny wildflowers, including poetically-named astrantia million stars. Fresh and romantic, the finished crown looked perfect with Lauren’s “lob,” worn in gentle waves. Read More
Hanging florals we created, for a very romantic wedding at The Plaza Hotel, are featured in the new issue of The Plaza’s magazine.
Here are two short videos that feature flowers from that same wedding (and some great music!). You’ll recognize the pink roses, suspended by strands of pearls, in the first video. In the second, watch our design team create glamorous, ombré-affect reception centerpieces.
For the summer wedding of a bride who is a very dear friend, we created this hand-tied bridal bouquet, composed of flowers in shades of cream and very pale blush. For a soft, airy, romantic look, we selected fluffy café au lait dahlias and peonies, delicate spray roses and sweet pea and classic Vendela roses. To finish the bouquet, stems were ties with white-satin ribbon, accented with lace from the bridal gown.
