The wedding ceremony is typically designed around an archway, chuppah, or arrangements. Entering high wedding season with warmer days in the forecast, many couples are opting to head outdoors to say “I Do.” From spectacular views overlooking lush landscapes and signature city horizons to intimate gardens and terraces, the allure of an open-air ceremony is undeniable. What makes decorating for an outdoor ceremony so exciting for us as wedding florists is the variety of styles and elements that can be used to help set the stage for this one-in-a-lifetime event between two people. We love working with clients to bring their outdoor wedding dreams to life.

‘Colorful minimalism’ sounds like a contradiction of terms, especially when it comes to wedding style. We completely understand if you are most comfortable in a uniform of black, white, and if you are feeling a little adventurous, beige. Color, however, is tied to emotion. And one of the most emotional days in one’s life is their wedding. Incorporating color doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice personal style or step way out of your comfort zone though. Actually, a dash of color, when applied thoughtfully and creatively, will complement your minimalist aesthetic, making it feel more special and expressive during this once-in-a-lifetime event. Let these ideas for adding color into your wedding help guide you in brightening up your big day.

‘Home is where the heart is.” While the saying is true, our relationship to ‘home’ has drastically changed this past year due to Covid-19. You can love the apartment, house, or condo in which you live, but having to carry out every aspect of your professional and personal life day in the same confined space day after day takes a toll. The reprieve that the holiday season usually offers from the stresses of work and life such as traveling and joyous visits with friends and family are not on the itinerary for 2020. This being said, we still have much for which to be grateful. If you haven’t made a list yet, try jotting down just a few lines detailing what you are thankful for – the exercise helps to shift perspective and uplift the spirit – guaranteed.
