It's always exciting when one of our past weddings is picked up by a national wedding blog such as Style Me Pretty so you can imagine our delight when we found out the wedding floral designs created for Jeff and Astrid were featured this month. Here are a few highlights from this very Elegant Princeton Wedding ~ photography by Rebecca Yale.
Trying to decide if your bridal bouquet should be simple and classic, perhaps a combination of all white and ivory flowers or perhaps you want to pop it out and have fun with your colors and choose a more dramatic color combination. In my experience, this is truly a personal choice.
With 50% of our brides going with white, ivory or paler tones and the other 50% going more colorful, I admit that I'm a sucker for these more unusual color combinations. Take this weekend's bridal bouquet for Megan with it's dramatic textures and color. Shades from peach, pink into deep oranges, this bouquet has lots of contrast and texture. Garden roses, dahlias, ranunculus, pincushion protea and hypericum berries accented with touches of baby's breath (see previous blog, those are what her bride's maids are carrying).
Because this bouquet is not only colorful but textural (all different shaped flowers) but not styled too wild, the overall look of the bouquet is still somewhat formal. I personally can not wait to see pictures of Megan holding her gorgeous bouquet!
Over the past year or so, baby's breath has really become a staple element in our floral designs and this summer has been no exception. This weekend, we're creating floral elements for a wedding at Chauncey Hotel and Conference Center using lots and lots of baby's breath including these for the bride maids. The stems are wrapped in a burlap ribbon for a rustic feel but not as rustic as twine. The bridal bouquet will be styled in vibrantly colored flowers but keeping to the simple, vintage theme, the centerpieces will be simple baby's breath in a mason jar.
Looking forward to 2015 weddings, I can't say for sure if the baby's breath trend will continue, although quite a few of our weddings for September and October will also be using this affordable but romantic flower. Stay tuned to our website to see future floral creations!
We were so excited when the Philadelphia Zoo reached out to us for permission to use our Funky Peacock Feather bouquet on the cover of their new Wedding Brochure. We are so honored and how great would it be to have your wedding at the zoo? I'm hoping that we get to do one there very soon!
This bouquet was created about 6 years ago for a bride having her wedding at the Lambertville Inn. It remains one of our most popular bouquets with requests coming in from all over the country for this bouquet style. The peacock feathers are such a great addition, don't you agree?
Nothing makes me happier than when a bride shares her professional wedding photos like this one sent to us today by our bride Tara.
Taken by Jeff Tisman of Jeff Tisman Photography, this all white bouquet reads like a dream. Garden, tea and spray roses, lisianthus, dahlias and lambs ear combine with cascading touches of ivy trails.
An all white bouquet is always a classic and really looked amazing in this Fairy Tale Themed wedding. Would you consider this style bouquet for your own wedding?
What a fun time of year to have a wedding and we love the drama of these bouquets created for this weekends wedding. We don't often do lots of weddings in November and this year we have quite a few this year.
This bouquet was being designed for Jessica's brides maids. Ring of Fire sunflowers, Black Bacara roses along with brown hypericum berries make a striking combination, wouldn't you agree?
What I love most about this combination is the different shading and textures that each flower provides. Also, the striking yellow really pops against the dark burgundy roses. Be sure to check out our Fall Category of this website for more photos from this fall themed wedding!
The fall is such an amazing time of year for weddings given the color and flower choices. Take this bouquet for example ~ this includes so many unusual and fun funky flowers such as cymidium and mokara orchids, brunia, pincushion proteas, mini callas, roses and even fern curls. Created for our bride Alicia, it really was the perfect bouquet for her wedding outside at Grounds for Sculpture. I personally think the bouquet itself was a work of art!
I especially loved the different colors and textures and how they combined to give the bouquet movement. As this bouquet is spun around, it looks slightly different on all sides. Although, not for everyone, this bouquet will really be remember by everyone who sees it, don't you think?

What a lovely day it was for this wedding being held at Valenzano Winery down in Shamong NJ earlier this spring. Patricia and Ariel had a lovely Spring day. It's always wonderful to see the professional photos and I especially loved this one of the bridal bouquet.
A combination of roses, ranunculus, craspedia, dusty miller and phaelanopsis orchids, this bouquet was far from ordinary. The brides maids carried bouquets in coral and yellow as their dresses were a bright sunny yellow while their shoes were a deep rich coral. What a striking combination against the back drop of the vines at the winery.
Thank you to Cain Images Photography for the wonderful shot.
Inspiration photo ~ why do I ask my bride to show me pictures of wedding flowers they like? One of this weekends weddings is the perfect example; past bride Kate carried a rather large bridal bouquet of all roses from light, to medium and then onto deep pink. A classic design and such vibrant colors, perfect for summer.
Fast forward 3 years and this weekend's bride Alice see's Kate's bouquet on our website, her heart begins to quicken and she finds a bouquet she loves. See how easy that was for Alice? Also, a bit easier for me being Alice and I were never able to meet and did all our wedding flower planning via emails and phone conversations.
Taking the time to search the World Wide Web (and WOW how truly big it is) to find photos of flowers you like will go a long way in helping us to get quickly into your floral zone. So if you are planning your wedding right now, get crackin' and checking out the millions of amazing flower photos available on line! You'll be glad you did and so will I!
I'm always amazed by how fast our brides can show us photos of their wedding. Take our lovely bride Emem who was married last weekend. Don't you just love how amazing she looks with her bouquet? Garden roses, mini callas lilies, hydrangeas, peony and touches of fresh ivy loops made for the perfect creamy pink bridal bouquet for an outdoor late June wedding.
Emem and Jim were married at Paradise Vineyards, a picturesque setting in Chesterfield NJ. Among the vines is a sprawling mansion that looks like it belongs in the mountains of Tuscan more so than New Jersey.
After a long walk down the rose petal lined aisle, Jim and Emem exchanged their vows and then ventured back up for cocktails and a sit down meal. After seeing all the photos from their day, I fee like I attended this amazing wedding.
