Jessica & Sean Wedding – High Centerpiece – Cherry Blossom Hygrangea Tibet Rose Mini Calla – Maritime Parc NJ – Photography By Daniel Moyer
No other flower symbolizes spring like the cherry blossom. Revered for hundreds of years in Japan where it is the national flower, it represents the beauty and fragility of life. Its lifespan is very short – the blossoms start to fall around two weeks after peaking. Definitely not your everyday flower, the cherry blossom is marked by a delicate and exotic character that captivates the eye, heart, and mind.
We always get excited when couples come to us looking to incorporate cherry blossoms in to their special day. Ranging in colors from white to dark pink, their blooming branches add dramatic height to any spring weddingscape. From centerpieces to bouquets to dessert, here are ten stunning wedding flower décor ideas with cherry blossoms. Read More

We all immediately started dancing!” And with that, the tone was set for the rest of the night. Read More

Jean and Bryan alleviated many of their anxieties by making sentiment and tradition ever present themes through out the day. And once the bride and her father took to the aisle, it was clear to everyone that the couple’s wedding vision had been realized, and ultimately exceeded all expectations. Read More
