Ask anyone who has gone through it, wedding planning is full of surprises. Ashley had a clear idea of what she wanted to wear.

Part 2: Saying Yes to the Dress
The first visit to a bridal boutique can be overwhelming. Pressure mounts in the search to find ‘the one’ amidst rack upon rack of gorgeous designs. Any anxiety Ashley was feeling on the way to her appointment at Monique Lhuillier was quickly put to rest the moment she stepped through the door. “My sales person, Frank, told me that this was a journey and we were going to go on it together. He couldn’t have been more right.” She started pulling dresses that met her criteria – long sleeve and completely fitted with all-over lace. The sparks just weren’t flying when she looked in the mirror though. Then one particular dress caught her eye. “It wasn’t lace, it wasn’t long sleeve, and it definitely wasn’t fitted. But there was something about it that stood out to me.” Ashley put on the dress and immediately knew it was ‘the one.’ “The reaction from my Mom, sister, and best friend helped seal the deal. I tried on a few more looks. But at the end of the day, it was this gorgeous and completely unexpected gown that stayed with me.” Read More

Jessica & Sean Wedding – High Centerpiece – Cherry Blossom Hygrangea Tibet Rose Mini Calla – Maritime Parc NJ – Photography By Daniel Moyer
No other flower symbolizes spring like the cherry blossom. Revered for hundreds of years in Japan where it is the national flower, it represents the beauty and fragility of life. Its lifespan is very short – the blossoms start to fall around two weeks after peaking. Definitely not your everyday flower, the cherry blossom is marked by a delicate and exotic character that captivates the eye, heart, and mind.
We always get excited when couples come to us looking to incorporate cherry blossoms in to their special day. Ranging in colors from white to dark pink, their blooming branches add dramatic height to any spring weddingscape. From centerpieces to bouquets to dessert, here are ten stunning wedding flower décor ideas with cherry blossoms. Read More
