The Best Blooms for Winter Weddings

When we think of winter wedding flowers, we often jump to an all-white color scheme, while in fact there is a wide range of flowers in many colors available in winter to suit any floral design vision.  Amaryllis, Anemones, Orchids, Hydrangeas, and Peonies are some of the most popular winter blooms, as well as many varieties of Roses.

Even if you’re committed to an all-white winter wedding, mixing and matching shades of white can make for a stunning array of tones, textures and shapes, from antique ivories to soft creams to classic white-as-snow.  Silvery accents of Dusty Miller or Silver Brunia make for beautiful finishes for a monochrome winter wonderland look.

Classic Romance in Red Hook

Recently, we had the pleasure of working with one of our new favorite photographers, Le Image, at one of our all-time favorite venues, The Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn. With such a great team assembled, there was no doubt that bride Delaine Duncan’s wedding was going to be exceptionally stunning.

A simple color palette of monochromatic whites, with accents of subtle greenery and the occasional red rose, created a mood that carried through the evening. From details like the delicate lace wrap on the bride’s bouquet to the unique floral arch we constructed for the ceremony, the day was picture-perfect from beginning to end.

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.

Natural Beauty at Liberty Warehouse

floral ceremony arch by agaton strom

Romantic flowers and rustic touches struck a perfect balance at this Brooklyn waterfront wedding.  You might remember bride Jennifer’s natural, dimensional bouquet from this recent bouquet recipe featuring blush La Perla roses, cream dahlias and cascading jasmine vines.

Vows took place under a stunning, squared archway of curly willow branches, adorned with cascading greenery and studded with clusters of roses and hydrangea. As with the bouquet, the look was natural and rustic with lots of dimension and texture.

Mason jars, accented with burlap and navy-blue satin ribbon, held simple clusters of baby’s breath to decorate chairs. Wooden boxes held lush blooms for low reception-table centerpieces.

Click through to see every lovely detail, captured by one of our favorite photographers, the brilliant Agaton Strom.

Wedding at The Liberty Warehouse: Part 2

Fusco_Liberty_warehouse_bridesmaids1
The Liberty Warehouse is one of our favorite Brooklyn wedding venues and, as you enjoy photos of this gorgeous wedding, you’ll see why that’s true. Sweeping waterfront city views, wide-open indoor and outdoor space and antique, industrial charm make this a truly special place.
Liberty Warehouse by Kris Rae wedding photographer

Last week, we shared details of the romantic floral arch we created for this ceremony. The same lush garden theme was carried through all the florals.

For an organic, cascading bridal bouquet in classic white and cream, we used standard roses, garden roses and spray roses, dendrobium orchids, lisianthus and stephanotis.

Bridesmaids’ bouquets were composed of blush and cream roses with white freesia. Table centerpieces were classic and romantic, in the same delicate, feminine color palette of blush, white, cream and pale green. Low centerpieces featured exquisite phalaenopsis orchids. We added drama to the high centerpieces with cascading dendrobium orchids and amaranthus.
