Lavish Love Story at New York Botanical Garden

Lindsay and Noah said their vows under a dream-like white Chuppah studded with clusters of roses. We used color to achieve a perfect balance between timeless and modern for the classic ceremony and candlelit reception at New York Botanical Garden. Photographer Fred Marcus beautifully captured this smitten couple’s celebration.

We love using purple and lavender flowers for so many reasons. For outdoor weddings, purples are gorgeous against green grass and trees. Dresses in shades like plum and aubergine flatter nearly everyone, so bridesmaids look and feel their best. Here, we wrapped sweet lavender roses with deep berry ribbon to create the attendants’ bouquets.

Lightscapes and centerpieces, with blossoms in shades of deep pink, lavender and lilac, created a dramatic mood. Arriving at the reception, guests were immersed in a violet glow. Floating opulent colors against clouds of white hydrangeas kept the look elegant and distinctive.
