New York City transforms into an enchanted wonderland during winter. Snow dusts the streets, buildings, and trees, bestowing a soft, quiet hush everywhere.

It may be be cold, but you have a romantic backdrop of glimmering snow and festive decor to work with. Iconic places like Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge as well as hidden gems like a quaint pub or picturesque street set the scene to make the most unforgettable wedding photos.

Modern Classic at Mandarin Oriental

view nyc mandarin oriental

Ideally located between Central Park and the Hudson River, Mandarin Oriental sets itself apart with breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline and exquisite attention to detail.

Stunning bride Carolyn could not have chosen a more fitting venue for her elegant celebration. Classic wedding flowers, in a timeless palette of blush-and-white, were designed to be both traditional and on trend. Ranunculus joined white garden roses and blush Keira roses in a compact, rounded bridal bouquet with fully wrapped stems. Bridesmaids, wearing a striking shade of royal blue, carried snow-white Tibet roses and ranunculus, while the sweet flower girl carried a delicate nosegay of blush roses.

Glamour at The St. Regis New York

St-Regis-Wedding-Ceremony-Florals

Sherry and Auren met the old-fashioned way, at a friend’s birthday party in New York City. “After the first date, both of us knew this was it,” Sherry told us. Auren proposed several months later on the picturesque Pont des Arts (lover’s bridge) in Paris.

The couple shared a vision of an understated, contemporary celebration, against a backdrop of classic, timeless elegance and romance. Where better than St. Regis New York? This recently renovated and redesigned, grand hotel preserves the storied feel of Old New York.

For the traditional Jewish ceremony, we created a four posted chuppah, elegantly draped in white chiffon, with a lush line of florals along the top. Candlelit blush, cream and lavender rose petals lined both sides of the aisle. Gilt chandeliers and soaring ceilings in The St. Regis Roof, a Beaux Arts Ballroom, called for tall, couture-look centerpieces. Flowers including Cool Water and Ocean Song roses were carefully arranged to create a chic ombre effect, from cream to blush, to pale pink, to deeper lavender.

Moms as Brides: Happy Mother’s Day Part 2

Mothers-Day-Brides-Manhattan
Happy Mother’s Day to all our beautiful brides who walked down the aisle with their own son or daughter as ring bearer or flower girl! We always love to see the ways that children are included in wedding ceremonies and celebrations. It’s especially touching to see kids escort their moms to the altar.

To all the brides who got married with their children at their side, all the brides who became step-moms when they said their vows, all our brides who are now moms or moms-to-be… have a beautiful Mother’s Day!

Quintessential Manhattan Wedding: Central Park & 21 Club

Central-Park_Bride-and-Flowergirl

A ceremony in snowy Central Park, followed by a sophisticated reception at the fabled 21 Club, made for a timeless Manhattan wedding, straight out of a classic movie. Landmark New York City venues add a sense of history and tradition which perfectly suited this beautiful bride’s tastes.

The bride envisioned classic, elegant flowers for her white winter wedding. We created her bridal bouquet with off-white garden roses and white phalaenopsis orchids, then wrapped the stems in satin ribbon and finished with a glamorous crystal brooch. Isn’t the above photo of the bride and her adorable flower-girl daughter with their bouquets just exquisite? The magical hush of Central Park in the snow was perfectly captured and you can see what a special moment this must have been. And our bride was a brave girl– that last day of January was one of the winter’s coldest days. She doesn’t even look like she noticed!
