It’s hard to believe that our very own Rachel Trimarco, a self-professed born planner, never intended to start a career in the wedding industry. Fast forward ten years later and she’s running a successful floral design and décor company in the heart of Manhattan.
Rachel Trimarco – Founder Owner Bride & Blossom
Rachel’s passion for flowers and sharp business aptitude led her to establish Bride & Blossom in 2008. Social media was just getting started. A new business couldn’t rely on posting eye-catching photos with snappy captions to attract attention and gain visibility. Rather, quality work, commitment, and maintaining excellent client relations were required. This was especially true in the wedding industry where goods and services are valued for their visual appeal and ability to meet clients’ aesthetic tastes. Read More
One of the best things about owning a wedding floral design company is getting to form meaningful relationships with our brides. I love the fact that 99% of Bride & Blossom’s clients are women. And while my work focuses on making sure their wedding day meets all expectations, the topic of beauty always comes up. Through conversations, I’ve learned that most of us share a concern that our makeup and skincare are not only effective, but also healthy. For this reason, I am excited to introduce Beautycounter, a revolutionary company committed to offering safe beauty and skincare products to women and their families. Read More
Peach Juliet Garden Roses in the Bride & Blossom studio
Peach, the sophisticated cousin of that ubiquitous wedding color — pink. This often-overlooked color can add a delicate touch of femininity to your wedding decor without going over-the-top. It works brilliantly as the subtle pop in a neutral color palette, and is brought to life with the addition of vibrant greenery. At a recent Bride & Blossom wedding held at Manhattan’s Refinery Hotel, we saw this color take center stage as the star of a particularly sophisticated soiree. The cosmopolitan venue provided the perfect backdrop for hues of peach, ivory, and cream with lush green accents.
We may still be waiting for April showers to bring May’s flowers to the streets of NYC, spring has officially sprung. Color palettes are getting lighter and brighter, and so is the mood of our bridal bouquets. Here are five of our favorites from the Bride & Blossom archives to spark your inspiration!
Cornell Business Review featured an interview with our founder and CEO, Rachel Trimarco, this month. Rachel speaks about the importance of web-based marketing and how the floral design and wedding industries have changed in the past few years.
Social media has really revolutionized the wedding planning industry and the floral industry as well because my brides share images. We get tagged, photographers tag us, we tag photographers. We have everything in our Instagram and Pinterest feed… The whole industry changed about three years into me starting my business which was right at the time when I was ready to start taking it to the next level.
Did you know that we are New York City’s only luxury, floral-design company specializing exclusively in wedding flowers? It’s true, we only do weddings! Our company name makes it pretty clear we cater to brides. In this video, Rachel, Founder of Bride & Blossom, explains how that sets us apart. Get a peak behind the scenes at Gotham Hall and The Plaza Hotel, and watch our team create unique hanging florals and an ethereal white chuppah.
Rachel was inspired to start a floral-design studio after creating all the floral decor for her own wedding. That initial spark of passion informs everything we do. We never lose sight of how much every detail, of every bouquet and arrangement we create, matters. Read More
