Nicole and Tony returned to a place that had wonderfully strong family ties and memories as their wedding destination.Getting married along the shoreline of Cape May New Jersey meant bright, bold and fabulously vivid flowers would be in order. Roses, Dahlias, autumn sedum and hypericum berries in rich beautiful colors gave Nicole the brilliance she desired and also incorporated some of the Seasonal textures that are indicative of a glamourous September wedding.
Michelle & Jared
Michelle and Jared wed on an upstate New York farm in late summer. Childhood memories and whimsy was the direction they wanted to take. Happy, bright and a little bit vintage speak of her color pallet and Fire flies in glass jars and floating paper lanterns were in attendance. Michelle wanted flowers to reflect her free spirit and love of nature on a warm summer evening. We used Dahlias, wheat celosia, fever few and crespedia to name a few. Just picked wild flowers continued the sweetly nostalgic feeling into the barn during the reception, filling many, many vintage collected bud vases on the dining tables. From this day forward, only sweet and romantically happy memories are allowed.
Katy & Jim
Katie and Jim were married in the early days of spring. They wanted to incorporate the newness of the season with the beginning of their life together. Forsythia was a must as was tulips, grape hyacinth and freesia. Their Irish heritage was also an important element and was hinted at with the use of spring green viburnum and beautiful bells of Ireland. Elegant with a beautifully feminine twist on traditional.
Alana & Jake
Alana and Jake’s end of summer wedding was in such a beautiful formal garden setting. Rustic yet sophisticated. Simply relaxed florals spilled out of hand made wooden boxes while hops vines meandered along the seating card table surfaces.Pee Gee hydrangeas, Lavender stock, garden roses and scabiosa all came together to speak of abundant garden bouquets. Delicate details like creamy yellow hypericum berries, queen anne’s lace and dusty miller are used to give the ladies nosegays an elegance that only a summer’s garden could supply.
Marina & Matt
Marina and Matt's big adventure started with a beautiful venue (the Highlands country club) which offers a relaxed yet elegant atmosphere. Marina longed for a delicate vintage color pallet with plenty of interest and texture. We used a creamy peach rose, paired with autumn seedum, cream hypericum berries, Dahlias and hydrangea. A punch of playful color was added with yellow crespedia buttons and pink bunny tail celocia. Her choice for table arrangements included a candy dish filled with all of the above and each table was completed with an array of delicate bud vases filled with darling snippets of color and deer antlers adding a touch of rustic outdoorsy flair. We wish Marina and Matt nothing but "Happy Trails" on life's high ways!

Christina & Greg
Christina and Gregg picked the most beautiful spot they could find for their Adirondack wedding. Simple and seasonal colors for early October are what Christina wanted. Something to reflect their love of the great outdoors and the Lake Placid area majesty. Sunflowers and red spray roses are paired up with mango colored calla lillies. Her bouquet is finished off with sea foam statice as brilliant as the blue Adirondack sky they married beneath.
Cynthia & Chris
Fairy tales do come true!
Cynthia and Chris were married in dreamlike Cinderella fashion on Long Island New York. The most heavenly pale pinks and creams capture the lighthearted femininity that Cynthia loves. Esperance roses, petite white gerbera daisies, pink majolek spray roses, dusty miller and andromeder flowers were all used to create this soft and sophisticated wedding pallet.
The only thing missing was the glass slipper!

Stephanie & Chris
Oh Heavenly Day!
Stephanie and Chris's wedding took place in what appeared to be Paradise! One of the most beautiful vineyards on the East end of Long Island N.Y. provided a stunning backdrop for this happy couple. Mother nature surely didn't skimp on the weather and the love of family and friends was just everywhere!
Bright sunny colors against soft aqua blue dresses reminds Stephanie of wonderful childhood days spent on endless strands of beach. Yellow pincushion proteas and craspedia sparkle against the crisp clean pink peonies and peachy orange roses. Silver dollar eucalyptus, variegated white and green hosta, soft grey/green lambs ear and a touch of echeveria add texture, interest and movement to her bouquet.
Sophisticated magic was the result of all of Stephanie and Chris's hard work and planning. A perfect beginning for a match made in heaven!

Monica & Jim
Clarity, Simplicity, Honesty.
Monica and Jim's beautiful Senate Garage Wedding took place in historic downtown Kingston, New York. The weather was clear, sunny and comfortable. Monica wanted un-fussy elegance and timeless style. We kept it simple, Zinnias, Dahlias, Roses, Alstromeria, Hypericum berries and Baby's breath. Many of the flowers we used here for Monica and Jim were locally sourced and from my own gardens. This was important to them. It is Important to us also, we love growing as much as we can and then sourcing the rest from local small farmers in and around Columbia County.
Clear, honest, simple......Perfect!

Carrie & Alex
There was Music in the air!
I can't say that I've ever met a couple more in tune with one another. Carrie and Alex celebrated their love and commitment on a wonderful September afternoon at the beautiful Senate Garage location in Kingston New york. When I asked them what colors and themes they wanted to incorporate into their decor the answer was HAPPY! So we brought in vivid watermelon pinks, yellows, oranges and whites. I went for fun shapes like big splashy Dahlias, wide open Garden roses and Craspedia. Elements such as Fever few , Zinnias, Summer grasses and Asparagus fern brought in the relaxed vibe that this couple was all about!
We enjoyed working with Carrie and Alex and wish them a life long marriage of nothing but HAPPY!

Megan & Andrew
Smokey mountain wedding
Megan and Andrew tied the knot on a cool September afternoon at the beautiful Foxfire mountain house in Mt. Tremper , N.Y.
Rich and smokey colors were used to play up Megan's naturally beautiful coloring. Purples and Burgundys were played against rosey sand colors for a floral statement that was dramatic yet held an air of subtle sophistication. The roses, Dahlias, scabiosa and amaranthus presented a smoldering romantic vibe, while the wild grasses, thistle and camomile reminded everyone that this couple has a playful love of nature and a relaxed and content relationship. Megan and Andrew were a joy to work with. They listened carefully to suggestions and offerings and put together a Party atmosphere that was uniquely theirs.
We wish you both the best of everything a wonderful union can bring.

Doug & Elissa
A Tasteful affair
Doug and Elissa are both involved in the food industry. She as a chef and he a Sales person. So incorporating a few gourmet notes into their floral vision was a must!
We used mushrooms and a variety of herbs in Elissa's lush bouquet. Her color palette leaned towards creamy pastel colors with pops of pinks and yellows to brighten things up. Elissa asked for a more formal bouquet shape, something with a slight drop in the front. We clustered the flower content, Peonies, roses, craspedia, dusty miller, ranunculus and of course the herbs and mushrooms which gave her that full but not overwhelming classical feel.
Twinkling fairy lights and floral touches everywhere made for a deliciously magical affair!
