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.

Perfectly Peachy at the Refinery Hotel

Peach, the sophisticated cousin of that ubiquitous wedding color — pink. This often-overlooked color can add a delicate touch of femininity to your wedding decor without going over-the-top. It works brilliantly as the subtle pop in a neutral color palette, and is brought to life with the addition of vibrant greenery. At a recent Bride & Blossom wedding held at Manhattan’s Refinery Hotel, we saw this color take center stage as the star of a particularly sophisticated soiree. The cosmopolitan venue provided the perfect backdrop for hues of peach, ivory, and cream with lush green accents.

Unique Rustic DIY Decor Ideas

rustic
adjective rus·tic \ˈrəs-tik

1. of or relating to the countryside; rural.
2. constructed or made in a plain and simple fashion; in particular.

 

Considering the actual meaning of the term, “rustic” weddings can end up being more elaborate and expensive than the more traditionally-styled weddings that people usually associate with being generally over-the-top. With the warmer months upon us, barn weddings that mix outdoor elements with a cozy, casual indoor setting are abundant.

The rustic theme is a blank canvas, offering tons of opportunities for you to lend your own creative touch to the decor. You can even collaborate with your florist to pair custom floral designs in your color palette with handmade decor elements to take the DIY wedding trend to the next level. For full tutorials on the ideas here, click the links below each image!

Flower Crowns Forever

Are floral crowns a classic wedding element, or a trend that has managed to stick around? It’s hard to say. In Ancient China, brides traditionally wore orange blossom wreaths on their wedding day, and Elizabeth Taylor crowned herself with hyacinths before she said “I do” to fellow actor Richard Burton in 1964. Throughout the centuries, brides have worn flowers in their hair to symbolize youth, fertility, and the natural cycle of life.

Modern flower crowns are less about tradition and symbolism than they are about color-schemes and overall aesthetics. Floral wreaths work at any time of year, but with the vibrant Spring and Summer wedding seasons quickly approaching, we need even more inspiration to fuel our creativity here in the Bride & Blossom studio.

#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.

Spring Fling! Flower Class

The most recent flower class at the Bride & Blossom showroom on the Upper East Side was one of our most successful yet — we are always so happy to see the beautiful creations made by our students at the end of the night! The spring fling theme carried through their designs in the form of bright tulips, lush greenery and delicate pastel accents.

Sharing our passion for the art of floral design is one of the best aspects of being a part of the team at Bride & Blossom, and we cherish these nights when we have the opportunity to come together with the community and teach them to make something beautiful.
