The Most Romantic Works of Art to See in New York City

Fall in New York City is one of the most romantic times of the year. The season’s warm, golden light casts a mood that is best enjoyed with someone special. Simply put, it’s a wonderful time to be in love!

The idea of love has fascinated artists through the ages. Our greatest creative minds such as Shakespeare, Rembrandt, and Picasso sought inspiration in love, using the emotion to make works of art so beautiful and passionate, they stand the test of time, resonating in the universal heart of mankind.

We can’t think of a better way to keep the amorous vibe flowing than spending a weekend afternoon strolling the corridors of a museum hand-in-hand. And lucky for us, New York City’s museums are home to some of the most romantic artworks ever created!

Palest Blush Bouquet at Battery Gardens

Bouquet Recipe Battery Gardens_Melissa Kruse

It’s no secret: we love blush wedding flowers. And creating this textured, romantic bridal bouquet, in the palest palette of blush and ivory, was pure pleasure. Beautiful bride Adriana wanted flowers with a classic but fresh look. Her bouquet was softly rounded and dimensional, with stems partially wrapped in ivory satin ribbon.

We chose several of our favorite specialty roses:dusty-blush Quicksand roses, warmer blush Keira roses, and pale-blush La Perla roses. Using a variations of a similar color adds depth, even to light-colored bouquets. Ranunculus, spray roses and garden roses, brought cream, ivory and white into the mix. A few sprigs of seeded eucalyptus accented the flowers.

Last week, we shared details of the romantic floral arch we created for this ceremony. The same lush garden theme was carried through all the florals.

For an organic, cascading bridal bouquet in classic white and cream, we used standard roses, garden roses and spray roses, dendrobium orchids, lisianthus and stephanotis.

Bridesmaids’ bouquets were composed of blush and cream roses with white freesia. Table centerpieces were classic and romantic, in the same delicate, feminine color palette of blush, white, cream and pale green. Low centerpieces featured exquisite phalaenopsis orchids. We added drama to the high centerpieces with cascading dendrobium orchids and amaranthus.

I grew up in Brooklyn and there was always something special about going to the gardens,” said Tracy. “I was a flower girl there, along with my little sister, when I was ten and she was six.”
