When I designed my first Chuppah, I loved the unique opportunity this was to create a sacred place of love and unity. Not being Jewish, this was not a tradition I was familiar with, so designing it was also a wonderfully eye-opening cultural experience. Naturally I love celebrations, but I have a special place in my heart for all things wedding.
In case you do not know, the Chuppah is featured at traditional Jewish weddings. According to Chabad.org,
The chuppah is a tapestry attached to the tops of four poles. The word chuppah means covering or protection, and is intended as a roof or covering for the bride and groom at their wedding.
When we do our work at Bride and Blossom, designing Chuppahs with elegant and enchanting floral arrangements is a real gift. It is an entirely unique canvas, and we want to make the arrangement perfect . I love the challenge and the unique opportunity I have to share my love of designing with and your special day in a way that allows me to be so creative. That, and of course, I truly love what I do.
I sometimes like to reflect on the past work I have done, and sometimes my thoughts go the many Chuppahs I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to work on. Each one was so different, unique like the clients I was designing them for. It reminds me of why I got into this business in the first place: to celebrate love, commitment, and the magical qualities of flowers.
These days, as business has truly taken off, and wedding season in full bloom, I still find time to locate enchanting and inspiring images of Chuppahs, as well as other floral arrangement designs. This allows me to stay fresh,revived, and ready to tackle any creative challenge so as to give my clients the Chuppahs, and weddings, of their dreams. One concept I have truly fallen in love can be found to the left. How amazing to see a chandelier within a Chuppah: this is absolutely gorgeous. It makes me all the more excited to design next wedding season’s Chuppahs, and for many more seasons after that.
