Lauren’s Ethereal Floral Head Wreath

Ethereal Floral Crown Anthony Vasquez 3

Lauren and David’s engagement photoshoot is sweet perfection. You may remember the tutorial and flower crown recipe we shared when this charming bride-to-be asked us to design an ethereal, bohemian-chic floral head piece for her engagement session.

Ethereal SeaGlass Carousel Opens in Battery Park

Manhattan’s most ethereal new attraction might also be the best new spot in the city for engagement photo-shoots. The otherworldly SeaGlass Carousel, nestled in Tiffany & Co. Foundations Woodland Gardens, is now open in Battery Park. Designer George Tsypin, whose work you may remember from the 2014 Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony, evokes the experience of being underwater with nautilus-shaped canopy and fiberglass fish that glow and spin. A decade in the making, the SeaGlass Carousel is an instant landmark that brings a sense of magic to the city’s waterfront.
