A Softer Side of Fall

Fall Wedding at Chelsea PiersWith fall in full swing, it seems that everyone is embracing Apple picking, pumpkin lattes (pumpkin everything for that matter), sweater capes and of course fall colors. One major fall component that seems to be lacking this year is the traditional fall weddings.

Our fall brides have always been eager to embrace the fall season by incorporating the rich fall colors, seasonal blooms and sneaking some mini pumpkins in there somewhere. However, this year, were truly seeing a shift, in that brides seems to be reaching for the softer side of fall.

So what does this mean? It’s less of the rich fall colors like shades of red, orange, amber, browns and hints of yellow and more of the creams, blush, greens and a pop of burgundy for good measure.

Manhattan Wedding in the Snow

NYC-winter-wedding-in-the-snow

New York City is so romantic in the snow! One of our designers captured this perfect winter-wedding moment outside Tribeca Rooftop in Manhattan this weekend. The photo took our breath away. Our bride in her fur shrug, the visible adoration and joy, and lush wedding flowers aglow in the snow… So much to love!

For a peak behind the scenes as we created floral decor for the reception, take a look at our Facebook album or follow us on Instagram @brideandblossom.

Romantic Floral Arch at The Liberty Warehouse

Liberty-Warehouse-Ceremony3

We created one of our most romantic floral arches for this wedding at The Liberty Warehouse on the Brooklyn waterfront. We loved designing all the floral decor for this stunning bride’s ceremony and celebration, but the arch that framed the couple’s vows, against a skyline view and sunset, is especially close to our hearts.

Beginning with a concept of a natural, garden-like structure with contemporary and romantic clusters of flowers, we constructed the arch with curly willow and wisteria branches. We first chose lush, decadent blush and cream roses, white spray spray roses and hydrangea, and blush stock. Dendrobium orchids trailed down the arch’s side, entwined with Italian and Israeli ruskus. Aisle decor was composed of clusters of the same flowers, all set in moss.

Tracy Norton and Michael Fischer were married at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens

When Tracy first approached us with her floral design request, we were more than delighted to be able to work with her. She picked out a beautiful array of flowers that suited her unique style, as well as fun and festive summertime wedding colors.  Her look also connected to a very vintage feel, which went perfectly with the ceremony and reception venue at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, as pictured above. Tracy’s bouquets and centerpieces featured a wide-variety of flowers, including peonies, garden roses, spray roses, orchids, succulents, and dusty millers. Her bouquets were lush, vibrant, and made a marvelous complement to her the style of her wedding dress, as well as the look of her bridesmaids, and one adorable flower girl.
