Brooklyn Botanic Gardens wedding flowers.

My bride contacted me last summer to start planning her Feb. 19th wedding at the Botanical Gardens this winter. I have to say, it means so much to me to have a bride place such trust in me and leave so many design decisions completely in my court. She came to me knowing her colors were purple and grey and that her style was modern with a funky twist, but that was it! NOTHING makes me happier than to hand over a bridal bouquet to a happy bride. I loved working on this wedding!
The card table arrangement was made from Laurel branches with scallop shaped tags hanging from black ribbon assigning guests to a table. I wired in purple orchids into the branches for a pop of color and to soften the branches with blooms.
The grooms bout was made with a ranuncuous, purple trachelium and a touch of brunia.
