The establishment of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden over a century ago paralleled the modern development of New York City. As skyscrapers, paved streets, and bridges grew like weeds, it was nearly impossible to find a soft spread of grass or blooming flower garden. Not much has changed to the concrete jungle that has come to define the cityscape. And thankfully, not much has changed to Brooklyn Botanic Garden since opening in 1911. It continues to be a designated green public space where people can come and get lost in the mesmerizing splendor of nature. It is no wonder then that the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is an in-demand venue for couples planning their wedding in New York City.

Rather, the colors, texture, and dimension that define a bouquet’s unique beauty are the result of major and secondary blooms in combination with fillers and greenery.

To help our readers better understand all the pretty details that go into assembling the perfect hand-held arrangement, we are sharing the floral recipes from our most ‘liked’ Real BB Wedding bouquets.

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.
