A Bride & Blossom Love Story

NOTE: I asked our Creative Director Lindsay to share the story behind her romantic wedding photos. We always love to share our brides’ love stories, but this one is very close to our hearts! – Rachel

I remember Rachel emailing me about this good friend of hers I “had to meet.” I almost said no because of a series of bad blind dates but something told me to meet him. We met outside a restaurant in the city and he was standing there waiting for me with his headphones on. I
thought that was funny because we didn’t know each other so I could have been walking around calling his name and he wouldn’t have known. Immediately something clicked and even though I was nervous, I felt so comfortable with him. I’ll always have such a vivid and special memory of that night. I think I was smiling the entire train ride home.

Five On-Trend Centerpieces

Centerpieces are one of the primary focal points of your wedding decor. In weddings past, stuffy, fussy floral arrangements reigned supreme, but these on-trend designs are a perfect opportunity to showcase your personal style.

1. The Rustic Romantic

 

Venue: Studio 450

Photographer: Carly Michelle

Flowers: Pink esther roses, seeded eucalyptus, white stock, lavender dahlia

These mid-height naturalistic arrangements are reminiscent of a walk through an enchanted forest. They accent the table without overwhelming the decor, and work well with simple color schemes.

2. The Pop Princess 

Venue: Studio 450

Photographer: Photo Pink

Flowers: Purple Anemones

Though they be but little, these purple anemones are fiercely fashionable. A single, exotic bloom that matches (or offsets) a monochromatic color scheme is both an aesthetic asset and a conversation-starter for your guests.

We Love: Moss Baskets for Flower Girls

Flower girls scattering petals from moss baskets captured hearts, in a wedding at The Liberty Warehouse, in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Flower girls never fail to charm us. Photographer Kris Rae captured the joy, pride (and shyness!) that go along with this important role.

Moss-covered baskets complemented the romantic-garden aisle decor we created with roses, hydrangea, spray roses, stock and seeded eucalyptus, set in moss. If you’re planning a similar wedding theme and you like this flower-girl idea, ask your wedding florist to recreate these petal baskets.

Etsy seller justanns offers handcrafted moss baskets finished with burlap ribbon and a vintage button. We also love this heart-shaped moss basket from Little Things & Favors.

We Love: Faceted Glass Terrariums from West Elm

We were so inspired by the way Helen Guzman, of Bonito Designs, displayed roses like precious jewels at a recent shoot. It’s easy to imagine more ways to use these glass terrariums and boxes by West Elm. They would make exquisite table card holders. Or, fill one with a few berries, a citrus fruit or a sprigs of herbs, to display next to the description of a signature wedding cocktail. At home, use one on a bedside or coffee table, to display wedding keepsakes like the ribbon and pearls that adorned your bouquet, your groom’s bow tie, or the jeweled comb you wore in your hair.

Thinking Inside the Box

We recently spent the day in Brooklyn, working with a talented team, on a styled shoot. Helen Guzman, of Bonito Designs, displayed perfect blush roses and delicate sprays of baby’s breath in beautiful glass boxes and a French country glass canister. We used a simple, wooden box to create a centerpiece of Dahlias and wildflowers.

All these boxes reminded us to always think outside of the box; to look for inspiration everywhere and consider how objects around us can be used in creative wedding flower designs. Remember this next time you plan a dinner party or holiday at home. Look around and experiment by using your own home decor items– small mirrors or frames, china tea cups, carafes, canisters– in unique floral centerpieces.

Peacock Feathers for Weddings

Luxe, jewel-toned peacock feathers make a bold statement in wedding decor and bridal accessories. A magnificent wonder of nature, the feathers’ popularity spiked during the opulent Art Deco era, and have long symbolized renewal and eternal life in Eastern cultures. It seems only appropriate to include such fine plumage in weddings. After all, this bird’s audacious mating rituals rival our own poshest ceremonies and celebrations.

Above, we layered peacock feathers to wrap a bouquet of deep purple blossoms, including hydrangea and call lilies in burgundy tones. Below, more striking ideas from around the wedding-sphere. To get all the details, visit our Pinterest board, Feathers in Wedding Decor and re-pin away!
