With the start of fall just days away, we have been reflecting on the summer wedding season. And when it comes to luxury bridal fashion, flowers, and venues, the famous brides who walked the aisle this past season ignited our hearts and imaginations. Their highly anticipated nuptials took place at a French château, London church, English cathedral, and exclusive Hawaiian hotel. While these weddings were spectacularly lavish in every way possible, they were also a beautiful expression of each bride’s unique style and personality.
Katharine McPhee Katharine McPhee and David Foster’s much-discussed courtship culminated with the couple exchanging vows at the Church of St. Yeghiche in South Kensington in late June. The Actress-singer wore a gorgeous custom Zac Posen dress featuring a ballgown silhouette, sweetheart neckline, and layer upon layer of striped tulle skirt. She accessorized with a dramatic cathedral veil and soft colored floral and greenery bouquet. The ceremony décor of lush, bright blooms created a striking contrast against the church’s ornate interior. For the post-ceremony celebrations, which took place at a private club, the bride changed into a silk cocktail dress, also by Zac Posen. Reception florals had a decadent, English garden feel with verdant greenery embellished with white and green roses and hydrangea. Read More

One of our favorite floral designs to collaborate on with brides is the bouquet. There are so ways to go with what is the most personal element of your wedding flowers. A forecasted wedding trend for 2019 is the long stem bouquet. We’re hesitant to use the word “trend” here, because it suggests that what is “in” now will be “passé” sooner or later. It is our aim to create designs that speak to a bride’s style and personality, something she can look back at years from now and still be happy with. This is what makes the long stem bouquet so wonderful. While it will bring dramatic flair to your big day look (heads will turn, we promise), it complements styles ranging from classic to romantic to modern. Here are fifteen gorgeous long stem wedding bouquet ideas for every type of bride. Read More
