Classic Romance in Red Hook

Recently, we had the pleasure of working with one of our new favorite photographers, Le Image, at one of our all-time favorite venues, The Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn. With such a great team assembled, there was no doubt that bride Delaine Duncan’s wedding was going to be exceptionally stunning.

A simple color palette of monochromatic whites, with accents of subtle greenery and the occasional red rose, created a mood that carried through the evening. From details like the delicate lace wrap on the bride’s bouquet to the unique floral arch we constructed for the ceremony, the day was picture-perfect from beginning to end.

Bouquet Recipe: Pink and Green Accents

2.29 Bouquet Recipe
The classic combination of pink and green gets a fresh lift in this bouquet. White dahlias and white garden roses create a neutral backdrop that takes this color scheme from ultra-girly to elevated elegance. The subtle hints of green from seeded eucalyptus and monochromatic pinks in spray and light pink roses are the perfect touch.

Venue: Studio 450

Wedding Advice from the BB Team: What We Would Do Differently

You spend months, maybe even years, planning your wedding day, and before you can take a sip of your champagne toast, it’s over! We know how quickly that day can go by, so the Bride and Blossom team got together to talk about what we wish we knew before our special days, and what we would do differently.

Elianna Phelps, Director of Events 

Our wedding was a more rustic/simple wedding on an island off the coast of Maine (July 21, 2012). We met in Maine, and lived there for about 5-6 years, so it was really meaningful for us — it was all about the views of Casco Bay as the backdrop for our ceremony and reception. We got really lucky had perfect Maine weather, not too hot and not storming, just blue skies and a salty sea breeze. We did not have a wedding party – just our immediate families (moms, dads, sisters) at the altar with us. It was really intimate and felt right. We wrote our vows together since we wanted them to be relevant to us.

A Peek Behind the Curtain

Some of you have had the chance to visit us at our sparkling Midtown Manhattan showroom, and hopefully we will soon have the pleasure of hosting those who have not.

Our showroom is where we meet clients for floral and decor design consultations and host really fun parties (we love a good party)!

In order to keep our showroom in tip top shape (clean, organized, and chic), we do all our back-of-house production and design at our studio in Long Island City, Queens. This is where we can really get our hands dirty to create beautiful wedding flower magic. We wanted to share some images from our archives of our home away from home.

Choosing your Wedding Flowers to Complement your Venue

If anyone has ever planned a wedding before or helped plan a wedding, you would know that there’s always some sort of vibe, theme or feeling that the couple wants to achieve. As a wedding designer, I often meet couples who are still in the process of establishing the overall look and feel of their wedding, yet torn as to which direction to head in with their flowers. With so many inspirations available these days (Pinterest, Instagram, Google, etc.), it’s easy to get overwhelmed with ideas and want to do a little bit of everything. My advice to couples is to start with the venue! Your venue will automatically set the tone. Your job (and our job) is to then complement the space with your décor.
