A Rose By Any Other Name

With their versatility, deep-rooted symbolism and timeless appeal, roses are the perfect emblem of love to grace any wedding décor.  Our obsession with roses dates back to Ancient Rome, when roses were used to symbolize devotion to Venus, the goddess of love, beauty, and desire.  The rose is the official flower of the United States, the United Kingdom, and even New York.  Fossil evidence teaches us roses are over 35 million years old, with 150 species naturally growing across the Northern Hemisphere.  It wasn’t until the late eighteenth century that we began to breed roses and create thousands of hybrids in a wide range of colors and shapes.

Perfectly Peachy at the Refinery Hotel

Peach Juliet Garden Roses in the Bride & Blossom studio

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.

Bouquet Recipe: Pink and Green Accents

2.29 Bouquet Recipe
The classic combination of pink and green gets a fresh lift in this bouquet. White dahlias and white garden roses create a neutral backdrop that takes this color scheme from ultra-girly to elevated elegance. The subtle hints of green from seeded eucalyptus and monochromatic pinks in spray and light pink roses are the perfect touch.

Bouquet Recipe: Dramatic Texture in White

In today’s Bouquet Recipe, we used all-white flowers and a touch of greenery to give a classic, white bridal bouquet a fresh look. If this style inspires you, ask your wedding florist for a multi-dimensional bouquet with dramatic texture.

White flowers will never go out of style for weddings, and they look beautiful for any season. When sticking to a monochromatic color palette, the key is to get creative with texture and shapes.

Natural Beauty at Liberty Warehouse

Romantic flowers and rustic touches struck a perfect balance at this Brooklyn waterfront wedding.  You might remember bride Jennifer’s natural, dimensional bouquet from this recent bouquet recipe featuring blush La Perla roses, cream dahlias and cascading jasmine vines.

Vows took place under a stunning, squared archway of curly willow branches, adorned with cascading greenery and studded with clusters of roses and hydrangea. As with the bouquet, the look was natural and rustic with lots of dimension and texture.

Mason jars, accented with burlap and navy-blue satin ribbon, held simple clusters of baby’s breath to decorate chairs. Wooden boxes held lush blooms for low reception-table centerpieces.
