Floral Chandelier for Chelsea Piers Wedding
Sunset Terrace at Chelsea Piers
Are you as obsessed with floral chandeliers as we are? Hanging florals have taken over everyone’s Pinterest boards and we believe this wedding trend is here to stay. Luxurious hanging florals uplevel the entire look of a wedding. We were thrilled when bride Renee told us she was dreaming of a gorgeous, showstopping floral chandelier, for her wedding on Chelsea Piers’ Sunset Terrace in Manhattan.
Renee decided on an overall wedding-color palette of white, cream, blush and peach. We selected white and cream flowers with lush greens for the floral chandelier. A natural look, with lots of mixed texture, felt right for this summer wedding overlooking the Hudson River.
We shaped the chandelier with branches of Italian and Israeli ruskus, then added white Veronica, white carnations and cream hydrangea. Hundreds more white carnation blooms were suspended with clear wire, to create an illusion of flowers floating in air. The chandelier hung above the wedding reception head table, which featured a six-foot long floral runner. This centerpiece was composed of blush and white peonies and peach garden roses, along with some of the elements featured in the floral chandelier. Together, the hanging flowers and floral runner evoked fresh, heavenly romance.
Working with creative brides who love flowers as much as we do is such a pleasure. We couldn’t be happier for this wonderful couple, and we’ll be sharing more from this lovely wedding soon!
