Ombré Floral Chuppah at Tribeca Rooftop Wedding

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


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.

We Love: Instax Mini 8 in Pink

Instax Mini Pink

Our new intern brought her cute, instant camera to the studio and took these shots of phalaenopsis orchids. Days later, we spotted one at flower class. This is the latest version of Fuji’s candy-colored Instax Mini. Simple to use, with a pop-out lens and included strap, it’s the perfect gift for a flower girl. I’m going to pick one up to surprise my four-year old daughter. She loves taking pictures (and posing!). Maybe this will reduce her obsession with my iPhone… too much to hope?

Gorgeous Glen Cove Mansion Wedding

Wedding Bouquets at Glen Cove Mansion

Summer pastels, under sunny Long Island skies, made this Glen Cove Mansion wedding a stunner. Christa and Bruno are head over heels in love and it shows. We’re obsessed with Lydia Campbell’s photos of this once in a lifetime day! Enjoy all the sweet moments of pure joy and the most perfect wedding weather. Here are all the details on the romantic, midsummer bouquets and floral decor we created for this sweet couple’s ceremony and reception.

Christa’s classic color palette, of blush, pink, cream and ivory, flattered her blue-eyed, platinum-blonde beauty. An elegant, hand-tied, bridal bouquet of ivory Vendela roses looked chic against her white dress. We embellished a satin-ribbon bouquet wrap with a lace overlay and a straight line of pearls. Bruno’s boutonniere was a single, flawless, ivory rose.

Summer Bouquet Recipe AnnaLeeMedia

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.
