Melanie and Nick met like many couples do these days – online. After a few email exchanges, they made plans to meet at a chic downtown NYC bar only to find out there was a two hour wait to get in. The dive bar just around the corner seemed like a better option. Melanie recalls, “We spent hours talking and playing pool against a Michael Clark Duncan’s look-alike. In the cab ride home, I realized Nick forgot to close out our one-drink tab. That’s how lost in the moment we were.” She continues, “When we said our goodbyes, we both knew that we had just been on our ‘last’ first date.”

With the end of each season, we always like to take a moment to reflect on our weddings – what made each one unique, memorable, and especially beautiful. This past summer, we had the pleasure of decorating the most luxurious venues in the New York area. Wedding styles ranged from upscale elegance to natural romanticism to modern chic. As floral designers, it’s always exciting to see how flowers and décor enliven these already gorgeous spaces while expressing a couple’s style and personality.

Even with the help of social apps, navigating the dating scene in New York City is daunting. Finding a match takes a lot of time and effort. But there are moments when someone, for some reason stands out from the rest. Just ask Sara and Mitch. “He had a lyric from one of my favorite bands on his Tinder bio,” Sara says. “I saw it and decided to say ‘Hello’ through the messenger feature.” Shared interests rank high on the list of qualities one seeks in a partner. With a similar taste in music, they were already off to a great start, even before having the first date.

In an age when people are meeting through dating apps and social media, the beginning of Ashley and Joe’s love story maybe considered old-fashioned by some. “We met at work,” Ashley recalls. “I had recently joined the company and a co-worker introduced us in the hallway.” At that moment, a seed had been planted with the perfect conditions for them to get know each other and eventually fall in love.

We are excited to introduce Ashley, our Bride & Blossom Featured Bride for April. Ashley & Joe exchanged vows on a lovely day at Wave Hill. Here, she shares the first chapter in their Real BB Wedding story.

One of main reasons Rashna & Sean chose to get married at the Bronx Zoo was because it offered new and exciting experiences through out the course of their wedding. After an unforgettable ceremony, guests gathered in the Madagascar Exhibition for the first of many toasts to the newlyweds. Then it was off to Schiff Hall for a night of celebration.

Given Hilary’s taste for glitz and glamour, it comes as no surprise that she celebrated saying “I Do” with a reception comparable to the fabulous parties F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote about in The Great Gatsby. There was luxurious décor, sparklers, pulsating music, and a showstopping 5-tier wedding cake. Here, the bride talks about the final chapter in her Real BB Wedding story.

Part 4: Reception, Centerpieces, and Sweetheart Table

After a preliminary round of toasts during cocktail hour, guests found their seats via a captivating escort card table and made their way to the Plaza’s ballroom. There, the vibrant pink color scheme gave way to white and gold. “Brad wanted an all white ballroom, which I thought was a nice idea to keep everything romantic,” Hilary says. “The Plaza is marked by gold ornamentation on the ceilings and walls. There was something so beautiful and elegant about having clean white.”
