We love when our brides find ways to incorporate their passions into the wedding day celebration. Music is a very important part of Kate’s life. Her relationship with Chase deepened over their admiration for music. If their wedding were to be an authentic expression of their love for each other, music would have to be involved. This week, we talk with Kate about how combining floral decor with musical elements worked to create a wedding ceremony that exceeded all expectations.

Part 1: Proposal & Planning

Williamsburg, Brooklyn attracts a creative crowd. On any given sun-filled day, the neighborhood’s McCarren Park is sprawling with people relaxing on blankets, picnicking, and discreetly drinking wine out of red solo cups. If you are an artist, the chances of meeting another artist are pretty good. But what are the chances that the other art-minded person is your soul mate? Kate looks back, “That date is so memorable for the both of us and brings back a feeling that is unexplainable. We definitely were in a love spell, and the entire day was surreal, fascinating, and full of laughter.”

Founder Rachel Trimarco On 10 Years With Bride & Blossom

It’s hard to believe that our very own Rachel Trimarco, a self-professed born planner, never intended to start a career in the wedding industry. Fast forward ten years later and she’s running a successful floral design and décor company in the heart of Manhattan.

Rachel’s passion for flowers and sharp business aptitude led her to establish Bride & Blossom in 2008. Social media was just getting started. A new business couldn’t rely on posting eye-catching photos with snappy captions to attract attention and gain visibility. Rather, quality work, commitment, and maintaining excellent client relations were required. This was especially true in the wedding industry where goods and services are valued for their visual appeal and ability to meet clients’ aesthetic tastes.

Beautiful Ideas With Delphinium Wedding Flowers

We’re not surprised that the delphinium has emerged as a favorite wedding bloom with our brides this season. Also known as the line flower and ‘larkspur’, the delphinium has a long stock covered with tiny blossoms making it the perfect accent for a centerpiece or bouquet. As one of the few true blue flowers in nature, it grows in a spectrum of blue shades ranging from pale and whispery to dark and intense.

The flower’s name originates from the Greek word “delphis” meaning dolphin. This description refers to its closed flower buds, which resemble a dolphin’s nose. In the language of flowers, the delphinium symbolizes an open heart, overall positivity, and fun and cheerfulness. Essentially, every quality you want on hand as you start a new life with the one you love most!

Something Blue: A Creative Take on Wedding Tradition

Dear Brides-to-Be, you are about to be handed a long list of wedding traditions, which you’ll be expected to take care of. And at the top is “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” The first three clauses of the bridal good luck rhyme are easy to nail – family and friends will be showering you with heirlooms and tokens once the engagement news breaks. But that last one, something blue, can be a little tricky. And what does it even mean exactly?

We did some digging and something blue stands for “purity, love, and fidelity,” principles you definitely want going in to your wedding day. For the bride in need of inspiration for her something blue, here are some of our favorite creative takes on the wedding tradition.
