This was one of the most intriguing weddings that we have ever worked. The bride and her mother did not have a lot of familiarity with flowers but both have an exquisite eye for detail. This sort of situation is right up our alley. It is in executing the details that we really shine as wedding florists. From ruching of the double-satin ribbon on the bridal parties' bouquets to match their dresses, a crystal button accent on the bride's bouquet, to tons of candles on altar for the ceremony, this wedding had so very many details that made it special.
When South American hydrangeas weren't white enough, we located the perfect pure white hydrangeas from a grower in Canada.
Phaelenopsis orchid blooms added an ethereal quality to the ceremony flowers.
The famed Columbia Tower Club on 76th floor was the perfect setting for a beautiful sunset reception dinner. We combined tall florals with a lower version and tons of candles to create visual interest in the room.
Deep blue ribbon to match the table linens was accented with a sprig of rosemary - another one of the details that made this a truly splendid wedding.
Clusters of flowers accented the gathered linens of the cake table and matched the cake flowers in the Mother of the Bride's vintage silver bowl.
