A Personal Touch and a Pop of Color

This weekend we worked on a boho-chic wedding with the Hudson River as our backdrop. Adding their own personal touch, the groom and his father worked together to build the Chuppah, and topped it with crocheted linens made by the bride’s Great Grandmother. Hanging votives along the edges of the chuppah and floating candles at the base of it created twinkling lights around the ceremony structure, allowing the piece to really come to life.

We teased guests with the bright pink bridal bouquets during the ceremony, and later added the oranges and greens to the centerpieces to give the elegant white tables and d├ęcor a pop of color.

The escort table was adorned with various bouquets of flowers, each breed sat in their own vase. We used White Phalaenopsis Orchids, Calla Lilies, Hydrangea, and Spray Roses.  We added a textural element by hanging these awesome Pom Poms in varying sizes and styles above the table, adding soft orange and green touches to the scenery. This installation really set the tone for the rest of the event.

As stated, we then really brought the party to life with these colorful and elegant centerpieces, paired with floating candles and votive candles.  To keep the look interesting, we alternated centerpieces, using either 3 different sized arrangements or one lush arrangement.   For the reception and cocktail hour we used  Gloriosa Lilies, Peonies, Hydrangea, Roses, Viburnum, Spray Roses, and Calla Lilies in a combination of cream, pink, orange, and green.

For the cocktail hour, we topped each table with a single bloom in a bud vase.  

It’s all about taking a natural look with a few elements of surprise to keep it chic, interesting and classic!
