Bridal Beauty at The Ritz-Carlton Battery Park

One of the best parts of working with Bride & Blossom is having the opportunity to hear the amazing love stories of our brides. Liza and Jesse’s story is no exception!

“Jesse’s sister Carly introduced me to Jesse at her Hanukkah party several years ago. My close friend from college grew up in the same town as Jesse and is close friends with Carly. It took Jesse almost a year to ask me out, but after our first date, the rest was history. Being married to Jesse makes me feel like the luckiest girl!”

We think she’s pretty lucky too, especially helping to create a classic ambiance for her traditional wedding at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park. Liza went with a clean, simple color palette in shades of white and ivory with blush accents that popped against the dominant neutrals she chose. With a show-stopping venue like The Ritz-Carlton, she knew better than to overdo it on décor, and let the setting add to the classy, romantic mood.

#MeetTheReineckes

When we think of the phrase “dream wedding” in the Bride & Blossom studio, we don’t mean a high-maintenance affair with pounds of tulle and a cavalcade of stretch limos. For us, a dream wedding is one where the couple’s unique love story shines through anything, even a rainy day in Manhattan.

The Reinecke wedding was the kind we dream about. These Boston College sweethearts held their wedding at Battery Gardens, accompanied by the mellow vibes of the Clark Eno Orchestra. The bride wore Kate Spade shoes for the ceremony and reception, but had no problem slipping into Hunter boots when the weather turned wet. From champagne with her bridesmaids until the moment she said “I do,” bride Kristen McEvitt was the perfect image of a princess.

Sunset Elegance at The Liberty Warehouse

The Liberty Warehouse is one of New York’s most unique and breathtaking wedding venues. The pre-war building on Brooklyn’s iconic Red Hook shipping docks was built in the 1850s, and is the only place in the state where you can see the Statue of Liberty’s face as you look out over New York Harbor.

This was an especially fun wedding to do because of the sunset timing and the overall elegance, enhanced by little details such as the bride’s shimmering, beaded gown, candles flickering in tall glass cylinders, and black table linens. By paying close attention to every element of the decor, we were able to create a romantic mood that set the stage for an unforgettable evening.

Ella’s Flower Class Birthday Party

My little girls have been surrounded by flowers since they were born. Coming into the studio, and sometimes even to weddings, is such a treat!

Ella often picks wildflowers and pulls apart arrangements to make her own “bouquets”. It brings me so much joy to share my love of flowers with my girls. I was thrilled to plan Ella’s 5th birthday party with my leading ladies, featuring custom made floral décor, a flower design craft and gorgeous sugar flower cake. Ella was in her glory, and I hope this is a birthday party she will always remember. I especially adore the picture of her in front of the beautiful pink Hydrangea flower wall.

Palest Blush Bouquet at Battery Gardens

Bouquet Recipe Battery Gardens_Melissa Kruse

It’s no secret: we love blush wedding flowers. And creating this textured, romantic bridal bouquet, in the palest palette of blush and ivory, was pure pleasure. Beautiful bride Adriana wanted flowers with a classic but fresh look. Her bouquet was softly rounded and dimensional, with stems partially wrapped in ivory satin ribbon.

We chose several of our favorite specialty roses:dusty-blush Quicksand roses, warmer blush Keira roses, and pale-blush La Perla roses. Using a variations of a similar color adds depth, even to light-colored bouquets. Ranunculus, spray roses and garden roses, brought cream, ivory and white into the mix. A few sprigs of seeded eucalyptus accented the flowers.
