For those of us not fortunate enough to live in eternal warmth, spring often signifies the much-welcomed peeling off restrictive layers, heavy woolen wraps and full length casings that double as winter coats. We’ve traded our cumbersome snow gear for the tailored sophistication of a trench coat and kitten heels. We breathe again and our world is filled with the budding optimism of sunlight.
Spring weddings are much like the light that breaks through the dense, grey haze of winter. They are flirty and fresh, bringing the first pops of bright color after the long departed summer hues have faded. They conjure images of lush rolling hills just beginning to sprout with green carpets and cobblestones wet from a light spring rain. Flowers, just like fashion, change for the season, and springtime flowers are some of the most beloved around the world. They are colorful, fun and bring sunshine into your days. Here at Bride and Blossom, we have a few of our favorite flowers that we love to work with during springtime weddings. Read More
We used to live a block apart from each other. I would always see Manjil walking his dog. We are both obsessed with dogs, and I would stop and pet his dog every time I saw him. Eventually I got up the courage to ask him out on a date. Four years later, I arranged for our families and closest friends to be flown in from all over the country for a surprise proposal at our favorite restaurant in the city, Ilili.

This pop-art inspired flowerwall, for a rooftop wedding at Manhattan’s Studio 450, was truly like nothing we’ve ever done before!
Grooms Manjil and Brad wanted a “jaw-dropping,” one-of-a-kind piece of living, floral artwork, to serve as backdrop for their tradition-infused ceremony. We used vibrant gerbera daisies, in a rainbow of shades, from deep red, fuchsia and orange, to yellow, peach, pink and white. Vivid hues invoked India’s floral wedding-ceremony decor. While the striking, contemporary pattern, set against a skyline sunset, made the moment very NYC.
A simple bouquet recipe today, perfect for a summer wedding. We created this fresh, blue-and-white bridal bouquet for a bride getting married by the sea in Westhampton. Flawless, white Tibet roses, white Gerbera daisies and bluish-white hydrangea were hand-tied with a white-satin ribbon. Simple, sweet and richly-textured, this bridal bouquet looked right at home against white sand and blue sky. Beach weddings make us wish summer in the Hamptons would never, ever end!
