They say don’t dwell on the past, but we would happily relive just about every moment from our Real BB Weddings of 2019. The year leaves us with a great feeling of gratitude. We had the chance to really get to know our couples and make their wedding visions a reality. As our working relationships became stronger than ever, new connections with talented vendors and industry professionals were made. To say we are excited for what the future holds in 2020 would be a serious understatement.
Something else that has us excited is engagement season. The holidays kickstart a period of popping the question with a sparkling ring that continues through Valentine’s Day. For many, the first niggling thoughts of wedding planning soon follow. Since we are already in a state of reflection, we thought now would be a great time to spotlight decor from our Real BB Weddings of 2019 as inspiration for you lucky readers who are preparing to walk down the aisle.

An Enchanted Oceanfront Soirée at Gurney’s Montauk
Making the most of the ocean view at Gurney’s Montauk, this early summer wedding began with the bride and groom exchanging vows under an enchanted chuppah of manzanita branches covered with roses, dahlias, orchids, delphinium and greenery. Reception decor displayed low and high centerpieces (harlow stands were very popular in 2019) composed of pretty, cascading blossoms and greenery.
A Lush White, Green, and Burgundy Wedding at Brooklyn Botanic Garden
A color that works well in a variety of styles and palettes, burgundy had a strong presence last year. Pairing the bold hue with crisp white florals and rich greenery, this mid-fall wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden commenced with a birch branch chuppah showcasing asymmetrically arranged hydrangea, anemones, roses, dahlias, astilbe, snapdragon, and amaranthus. The seasonal-inspired color scheme continued on through the reception, casting a warm and intimate feel over the space.
If you ask us, reflection is a good practice to keep. It lets you take stock of the past while setting intentions for the future. After reviewing 2019, one of our biggest takeaways is how lucky we are. There are no words to describe the feeling that comes with the opportunity to decorate all of these amazing venues with the goal of making a couple’s wedding dreams come true. We can’t wait to do it all again in 2020!
