Signature Cocktails With Spice & Sparkle

Attracted to the concept of signature cocktails but not sure how to choose a drink that will please your crowd? Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

Consider Color: If your bridesmaids will wear plum and your bouquet and centerpieces will include purple orchids and lavender roses, champagne cocktails, created with crème de cassis blackcurrent liquor will perfectly coordinate.

Fall brings warmth and glow with burnished leaves, amber afternoons and evening firelight. Copper’s earthy radiance makes it the favored metallic of this season. We found inspiration in an exquisite Indian bride, runway fashions from Elie Saab And Meadham Kirchoff, and a gleaming barn wedding with a glittering cake by City View Bakehouse. Stir the embers of your autumn celebration with coppery accents, accessories and decor.

A November Wedding

Here’s a glimpse into a wedding we did back in November! Tiffany and Lawrence said “I do” in the beautiful Battery Gardens of NYC with the gorgeous color scheme of purple, lavender and orange. This was one of our sweetest couples, so easy to work with, and we definitely enjoyed the karate photos the groom preformed! The bride’s mother made us feel so welcomed by offering us food and even inviting us to the cocktail hour, which we declined because of our attire.

A special thank you to wedding photographer Steven Saldana for graciously sending us these lovely photos. Visit his site at: http://www.studiosaldana.com/ Read More

The Right Flowers

Choosing the right flowers and style for a fall wedding may seem somewhat daunting since the fall doesn’t offer the varieties and colors available in the spring and summer. However, there are many gorgeous and stylish blooms to choose from. Use a variety of textured flowers like Coxcomb with brilliant hues instead of just a few coordinating blooms for a lush, multi-dimensional arrangement. You can also opt to use non floral accents like fruit, vegetables, Birch Bark, Hypericum berries and cones. Pair the more exotic flowers with classic wedding flowers like Roses, Calla Lilies and Orchids in richer hues than you would use in the summer. For bouquets, gone are the loosely tied, garden like arrangements of the past season. Instead, go for the polished, rounded bouquets that are completely wrapped with satin or velvet and accented with rich colored jewels in crystals in pearls. Lastly, get creative with your vase choices. There are many options in traditional glass vases but instead incorporate urns, ceramic vases, colored glass, silver and gold leaf candelabras or even groupings of different shapes and sizes on each table. For your tables, consider adding loose colored leaves, mini pumpkins and anything else that celebrates the change of season.


Labor Day Wedding

As Labor Day is quickly approaching and summer is coming to an end, weddings are on the brain of all fall brides to be. September is the most popular month for weddings especially on the east coast where the weather is a bit crisper and foliage gives us a gorgeous array of color. While some flowers are now out of seaso……n there are tons of stunning options for fall floral arrangements. Consider dahlias, Chrysanthemums, and Asters. Many brides opt for non floral accents to commemorate the season like fall fruit, vegetables and leaves.


Big (Huge) Greek Wedding

Our team worked so hard this past weekend pulling off a huge Greek wedding where flowers ruled the day! Hydrangea and peonies were the primary flowers and the arrangements were made to WOW! It was well worth the effort and the arrangements were stunning.
