Our Feature in New York Wedding Magazine

After eight years of Dating, Liz Lops, 46, proposed to Keisha Bell, 50 at Christmas with a video montage of their greatest moments of 2016— it ended on an image of a ring. “Liz is super-creative,” says Keisha, the managing director at a financial-services firm. It was Keisha who took on the creative role for the wedding planning, however, choosing Whitby Castle for its blank-slate interiors and ceremony-friendly outdoor space. “It’s a Rye gold club so probably one of the whitest places in the state. We were like , ‘Are we adding a little flavor to this place?” Keisha jokes. Liz surprised Keisha with a performance of the “Single Ladies” dance with their friend’s 9-year-old son, a Broadway actor; the other guests continued to cut up the floor as the playlist went on. “My college song was ‘Jump Around,’ so it was a bunch of 46-year olds jumping around to that song,” says Liz, who’s a teacher. Still, adds Keisha, “even though we were among 130 people, it also felt like just me and her.”

This wedding has to be one of our favorites. There was so much love on this day that my team and myself were emotional with happy tears. We worked with some amazing Vendors that day as well. Bjorn from Bjorn & Company introduced me to Keisha & Liz. Along with Bjorn, Keisha knew what she wanted and expressed to me her love for flowers so we wanted to give her a beautiful day. Our favorite part of the design was the chuppah. Check out that day below and the video which I promise you will make your heart melt click here for video which was created by Artvesta Studio.

Which Bouquet Style Represents You?

Hey lovelies, I know it’s been a while as this wedding season was super busy for us and I’m still learning how to balance everything. My business, mommy duties, wife duties, sister duties, being a daughter and giving self care which definitely was & currently not easy.

Today I wanted to talk about Bouquet styles and the most common ones we’ve seen. It all depends what you love and which represents your style best. I’ve had Brides who loved everything and they were just excited for the big day so I had to narrow it down to see which one best fits them. We do this by having a consultation and having a chat and then creating a Pinterest board that we can both view. They’re are also Brides who know what they want in every detail which is cool too. Then our job is to provide the best experience and create floral designs & decor for the big day.

Round Bouquet

The Round Bouquet is one of the most common bouquets we’ve created. It’s all about the shape in this bouquet. The flowers we usually use for this type of bouquet are roses & peonies. We can definitely use other flowers because it’s all about the dome shape. To me this bouquet is traditional & classic.

Cascade Bouquet

This style bouquet can be a statement piece all on its own. It’s a waterfall of flowers that elegantly drapes down. Typically we use orchids for this specific bouquet as they naturally have that shape. But in the 2nd photo we didn’t use orchids but used various flowers: ranunculus, calla lily, seeded eucalyptus, rosegold fillers. This bouquet is super elegant and can be traditional as well.

Posy Bouquet

This bouquet is a small bouquet that mainly uses flowers barely no greenery. This bouquet can be used by Bridesmaids and even Brides. It’s definitely a popular choice as well. Carrying a bouquet all day if you ever ask a past bride can be very heavy but a Posy Bouquet is a great alternative to still get a beautiful bouquet with a huge impact.

Handtied Bouquet

This past wedding season this was our most popular bouquet. This bouquet incorporates various flowers and different greenery usually put together with ribbon or twine. This style is very Whimsical and Rustic. It gives a feeling that these flowers were just cut straight from the farm/ field and given to the Bride. I love that feeling.

Pomander Bouquet

This perfect round ball of flowers is another classic style bouquet that can be held with a ribbon or even pearls as seen in the photo below. We’ve created these for flower girls and can be designed for a Bride as well.

Hello!

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day, any reason to celebrate LOVE sounds great to me. During this time alot of couples get engaged.  It's the beginning of a new adventure. I've heard from couples who are together for a long time that it even feels different once they get engage. Alot of emotions are felt during this time.

Today I would like to share this couple's Elopement photoshoot which was photographed by the talented Dream Pictures NY. We provided the Bride's bouquet and Groom's boutonniere. This couple wanted to celebrate their love in Central Park. I just love how the red pops in these photos. The color red really bring love and romance to this love story. In New York City Winter tends to be a little depressing with all the greys but this photoshoot shouts "Love is in the air at NYC". !

If you have recently became engaged and ready to plan the big day Contact us today. We love celebrating love and providing unique floral designs & decor.
