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.

Housed in a printing press building from the 1920s, it has been fully renovated into a chic industrial event space highlighted by a soaring glass atrium, impressive glass window walls, and a rooftop complete with breathtaking views of Manhattan’s skyline.

“I’ll never forget seeing the ballroom for the first time,” BB Featured Bride Stefanie recalls. Gotham Hall’s grand, cavernous space is marked with a 3,000 square foot ceiling above an inlaid marble floor with classical gilded ornamentation all around. Decorating such a distinctive venue can be tricky. One could play it safe with traditional white or take a risk with a vibrant floral display. Stefanie chose the latter and here, she reminisces about her and Mike’s spectacular ceremony.
