Chic Simplicity: a Wedding at Battery Gardens


Katlyn and Phil’s wedding, at Manhattan’s Battery Gardens, was a study in chic minimalism. When we first spoke with this beautiful bride, she had a clear concept: simple elegance, with a black, white and champagne wedding-color scheme and all white wedding flowers. Her vision was well suited to Battery Gardens, a sophisticated Manhattan wedding venue with a stunning water view.

When we design classic wedding flowers within a monochromatic color scheme, we love the look of bouquets composed of similar types of wedding flowers. For Katlyn’s bridal bouquet we used standard roses combined with garden roses. Textural variation kept her classic white bouquet contemporary. Bridesmaids’ bouquets were composed simply of white mini calla lilies.

White hydrangea decorated the card table, and white dendrodium orchids, spray roses and stock were added to create the understated, low centerpieces for reception tables. But our very favorite part of this lovely wedding is the exuberant little flower girl! Her pure joy was captured perfectly by Brett Matthews Photography.
