All winter we wait and wait for the day to hear the longing sounds of birds chirping, to see flowers budding through the soil, and to feel the sun through our windows. Spring is finally here! The grass is green, the trees are blooming and it’s time to put our snow boots away for good. There are so many qualities of spring that we fall in love with. March, April and May are heartwarming months to take advantage of the colorful foliage and natural beauty around us. As a soon-to-be-bride, choosing to get married in the spring is an exciting time that offers you many great options when it comes to your bridal gown, bridesmaids dresses, wedding flowers and your venue.

One wedding photo that always makes us smile is the bridesmaids’ bouquet shot. Being surrounded by best friends and sisters is a beautiful moment for brides and good wedding photographers make sure to capture it. Formal wedding party portraits are classic, and playful or candid pictures are perfect for capturing personalities. But we have a soft spot for pictures of brides and bridesmaids posing close together, holding out bouquets to form a giant cluster of flowers.
We suggest asking your wedding photographer to take three types of bridesmaids photos: classic wedding-party portraits suitable for framing, shots that show off your wedding flowers, such as the clustered poses pictured here, and some wildcard photos of you and your girls being silly. Group leaps and jumps are popular for capturing that exhilarating wedding joy. Faux sexy-serious poses are also entertaining. What you want is wedding photos that reflect the spirit of your particular friendships. But if your group is having trouble letting loose, ask your wedding photographer for suggestions. Being directed to twirl, form a kick-line or throw all bouquets into the air will probably result in lots of laughter. And those may turn out to be your favorites. Read More

“When Mike and I got engaged we looked at a few venues, but I had always known that the Brooklyn Botanic Garden was where I wanted to get married. I grew up in Brooklyn and there was always something special about going to the gardens,” said Tracy. “I was a flower girl there, along with my little sister, when I was ten and she was six.” Read More

When Tracy first approached us with her floral design request, we were more than delighted to be able to work with her. She picked out a beautiful array of flowers that suited her unique style, as well as fun and festive summertime wedding colors. Her look also connected to a very vintage feel, which went perfectly with the ceremony and reception venue at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, as pictured above. Tracy’s bouquets and centerpieces featured a wide-variety of flowers, including peonies, garden roses, spray roses, orchids, succulents, and dusty millers. Her bouquets were lush, vibrant, and made a marvelous complement to her the style of her wedding dress, as well as the look of her bridesmaids, and one adorable flower girl.
