Breathtaking Floral Ceilings

Nothing quite takes your breath away like walking beneath a sky of levitated blooms. Ethereal and whimsical, a floral ceiling is the most dramatic way to transform a space and is guaranteed to wow your guests.

So how are floral ceilings actually constructed?

“The ease of the on-site installation process really depends on the venue and what we have to work with,” explains Creative Director Lindsay Saltz, “Some venues have the perfect ceilings to attach wires and other necessary mechanics to…and others not so much. But once we get going and develop a rhythm, the actual hanging of the flowers becomes fairly easy. We mostly rely on wires and string to create a hanging treatment or chandelier.”

Bridal Beauty at The Ritz-Carlton Battery Park

One of the best parts of working with Bride & Blossom is having the opportunity to hear the amazing love stories of our brides. Liza and Jesse’s story is no exception!

“Jesse’s sister Carly introduced me to Jesse at her Hanukkah party several years ago. My close friend from college grew up in the same town as Jesse and is close friends with Carly. It took Jesse almost a year to ask me out, but after our first date, the rest was history. Being married to Jesse makes me feel like the luckiest girl!”

We think she’s pretty lucky too, especially helping to create a classic ambiance for her traditional wedding at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park. Liza went with a clean, simple color palette in shades of white and ivory with blush accents that popped against the dominant neutrals she chose. With a show-stopping venue like The Ritz-Carlton, she knew better than to overdo it on décor, and let the setting add to the classy, romantic mood.

Pretty in Pink

We know “wedding whites” and “something blue,” but there’s a third color that dominates the wedding industry: pink. This hue can show up anywhere from over-arching color schemes to non-traditional bridal gowns and, of course, flowers. Because so many blooms naturally occur in this hue, it’s no surprise that we have used a ton of pink flowers over the years at Bride & Blossom.

#MeetTheReineckes

When we think of the phrase “dream wedding” in the Bride & Blossom studio, we don’t mean a high-maintenance affair with pounds of tulle and a cavalcade of stretch limos. For us, a dream wedding is one where the couple’s unique love story shines through anything, even a rainy day in Manhattan.

The Reinecke wedding was the kind we dream about. These Boston College sweethearts held their wedding at Battery Gardens, accompanied by the mellow vibes of the Clark Eno Orchestra. The bride wore Kate Spade shoes for the ceremony and reception, but had no problem slipping into Hunter boots when the weather turned wet. From champagne with her bridesmaids until the moment she said “I do,” bride Kristen McEvitt was the perfect image of a princess.

Bouquet Recipe: Something Blue

 

If you want to put a fresh spin on the old adage of “something borrowed, something blue,” put the “something blue” in your bouquet! This arrangement borrows from the pastel color palette of spring by combining light and dark blue delphinium with lavender lisianthus and white garden roses to create a dimensional arrangement that is as unforgettable as the bride.
