Christina and Ben Wedding – Bride and Groom Bouquet – University Club of New York – Christian Oth Studio
Many of us can attest that our first impressions of romance came from the fantastical animated films by Disney. But very few can say that Disney played a direct role in finding their true love. Christina and Ben both have acting backgrounds and met while working as performers for Disney Cruise Lines. Getting into character day in, day out in such close quarters, close bonds with colleagues inevitably form. Christina looks back at that exciting time when their relationship was transitioning from a working friendship to something more and fondly says, “I guess you can truly say, ‘it all started with a mouse.’” Read More

One of the best things about being a floral designer in New York City is working with brides who incorporate their own special traditions into their wedding day. The chuppah, a significant feature of a Jewish ceremony symbolizing the home of the soon-to-be married couple, lets a bride be creative and express their personality and style. This week, we talked with our featured bride Marianna about her jaw-dropping chuppah and how she felt on her wedding day.

When it comes to weddings, what we really want to know about are the pretty details like the dress, shoes, and jewelry, and all those personal touches a bride adds to make her wedding day extra meaningful!

Part 2: Gown & Personals
When we asked Marianna about saying yes to the dress, she told us, “I knew I wanted a classic Vera Wang sweetheart ball gown. I only tried on four dresses, and the last dress was the one I went with. I immediately fell in love with the classic design and long bridal train. I knew it was the perfect dress because I felt like a princess.” Not many brides-to-be have it this easy in the hunt for a wedding dress. But take just one look at Marianna wearing her breathtaking Dagmar gown by Vera Wang and you can tell that it was meant to be. She completed her bridal attire with a sweeping cathedral veil, also from Vera Wang’s Iconic Wedding Collection. Read More
