C+ M at Battery Gardens

Crystal (from the West coast) and Mark (from the East coast) wanted to incorporate different elements of their native regions in their wedding decor.  With deep burgundy and marsala tones offset with cream and hints of peach and sage green, the highly textured florals and greenery perfectly came together to create a luxurious and romantic setting for their special day. The arrangements were structured and architectural, and their reception was held in a NYC institution that overlooked the Statue of Liberty. Every part of their wedding meant something special to the couple - dinner tables were named after locations in the city that they visited together, we placed succulents from California were placed all around the tables, and they even brought their own WALL-E and EVE figures for their cake topper! Thanks C + M for having us as a part of your big day!

T + J at Studio 450

Studio 450 is a raw space in midtown and the epitome of what you would think a "blank slate" venue would be: white walls, white floors, big windows, plenty of open space... we knew that Tiffany's choice of bright coral and pink tones would stand out beautifully, but we were amazed to see just how amazing everything looked. Tiffany's choice of white table linens and chairs also added to the look, with just the flowers and hardware adding color to the room. I can't even think of any other words other than "stunning" and "breathtaking" - everything looks perfect.

We used soft and feminine spring flowers for Tiffany's bouquet - Coral Charm peonies, Piano and Juliet garden roses, blush ranunculus, hypericum berries, and eucalyptus leaves. Centerpieces had similarly soft textured blooms like sweet peas, tulips, and lysimachia, with slightly "wild" accents with organic shapes.

S + J at Battery Gardens

Sometimes you meet clients you "click" with almost immediately and it makes the planning process so much more enjoyable. Sometimes you remain good friends with the clients way after their wedding. And sometimes the clients are so cool that you can't help getting ridiculously psyched about their big day. We loved working with Sofia and Javi - thank you for giving us the creative freedom to create your dream winter wedding!

Javi had one request for the ceremony and reception - all white everything. And so it was.

F + S at Gramercy Park Hotel

Fleur and Shaun's wedding last June was an effortless, classic affair of creams and natural greens against elegant black and white linens. For an iconic venue like the Gramercy Park Hotel, we chose timeless colors and textures, like peonies and orchids. Mirrored vases and mercury glass pillars added a hint of shine and an extra "oomph" to an already stunning display.
