Fresh & Green at The Garrison


Getting married at The Garrison, a gorgeous inn in the Hudson Highlands region of New York, means 360-degree views of the Hudson River, gorgeous natural light and crisp mountain air, all just an hour from New York City. This enchanting setting calls for fresh florals to weave nature’s beauty throughout the wedding ceremony and celebration.




One of our favorite ways to compose bouquets is to combine standard roses, garden roses and spray roses, in a subtle color palette, to add interest and depth. For this bridal bouquet, we began with classic, cream vendela roses. The groom’s boutonnière stayed simple with just a few white and cream blooms.

We often think of bridesmaids’ bouquets as variations on a theme. We took the color palette used in the bridal bouquet just a bit brighter with blush-peach spray roses to match the sweet bridesmaid dresses.

A card table featuring a tall floral arrangement welcomed guests to the reception. Our bride had a vision of romantic white and peach flowers, accented by curly willow branches, sprayed out in an asymetrical, “imperfect” style.

Lush, low and high table centerpieces were designed in an organic-contemporary style, with peach and green roses, white tulips, hydrangea, lisianthus and dendrobium orchids, accented with fresh, green hypericum berries, bells of Ireland, bear grass and lemon leaf.
