The beach is where it all began for Bride & Blossom. It was Founder Rachel Trimarco’s waterside nuptials that planted the seed, which would eventually grow into a luxury floral design & styling boutique. Rachel visualized the floral landscape for her own wedding. On the morning of, a-bride-to-be walked through the venue and liked the flowers so much that she requested contact information for the florist. That bride became Rachel’s first client.

In the past twelve years since then, the sense of joy and excitement felt as summer begins and weddings head to venues lined with sandy beaches and picturesque seascape views is just as strong. After a year and a half of pandemic lockdown that greatly impacted how we gather and celebrate lifetime events, we are especially looking forward to this upcoming season. In addition to the breathtaking setting, what makes beach venues in the New York City area so alluring is that they offer the look and feel of a destination wedding without all the added planning, stress, and expenses.

When we first meet with our brides to discuss the design of their dream bouquet, they usually have one or two ‘go-to’ flowers in mind such as the garden rose, peony, or ranunculus. This is a great starting point, but rarely does a bouquet contain just one or two flowers. Rather, the colors, texture, and dimension that define a bouquet’s unique beauty are the result of major and secondary blooms in combination with fillers and greenery.

To help our readers better understand all the pretty details that go into assembling the perfect hand-held arrangement, we are sharing the floral recipes from our most ‘liked’ Real BB Wedding bouquets.

You’ve finally decided on the dress and shoes, now it’s time to start thinking about the flowers that you’ll be carrying down the aisle. As the bride’s ultimate floral accessory, the wedding bouquet is the finishing touch on your big day look and should be chosen carefully. While we love a voluminous clutch of cascading blossoms and greenery, smaller bouquets have been catching our eye most recently. What these petite arrangements lack in stature, they more than make up with beauty and meaning. Unique, creative, and personal details become all the more important here. This is especially true as brides have had to reconsider their original vision because of COVID-19, and plan for a smaller, more intimate affair.

This time last year, no one could have predicted what 2020 had in store for us. We rang in the New Year excited for a new chapter of Real BB Weddings. This all quickly changed in the face of a worldwide pandemic. It became clear that weddings, perhaps the most social event of them all, would be greatly affected as our new reality unfolded by the day.

If anything, 2020 has forced us to change perspective and consider what is most important and valuable in our lives. The handful of weddings we did are a testament to this new sentiment. Faced with an unprecedented list of challenges, couples shifted their focus and asked, “How can we make the most of this day given the situation and make it feel special and meaningful?” Large and lavish celebrations gave way to small, intimate gatherings where every detail was heartfelt and thoughtful (not that they weren’t before, but you get the idea). And friends and family who couldn’t be there in person joined via Zoom and FaceTime. While original wedding visions may have changed, the love, emotion, and beauty that unites two people in life remained as strong as ever.

Ending their once-in-a-lifetime event in a joyous celebration that united their cultural heritages was very important to the couple. Fanta looks back and says, “It was just a big party the whole night!” Here, she shares the details about their unforgettable, fun-filled reception.

A bride wants many things from a wedding dress.
