ROMANTIC SECRET ELOPEMENT NYC: SAVARIA + HERVE

City Girl FlowersComment

On a cold December morning last year I received the warmest message! A beautiful bride-to-be, Savaria Harris, had seen my weekly floral arrangements at The Drybar and contacted me to design a bespoke bridal bouquet for her secret elopement ceremony in New York City. The ceremony would be held at Marriage Bureau, followed by a toast at the Crosby Street Hotel with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot that the groom brought back from Paris just for this occasion.

When Savaria shared an image of her lace dress, I immediately thought of an elegant soft color palate and luxury blooms that would enhance what she was wearing. Using some of her favorite flowers, I designed a graceful classic bouquet filled with peonies, roses and anemones. Photographer Kamila Harris (no relation to the bride) captured every stunning detail with perfection! I think Savaria's words sum it up best, "I just told my parents today [about the wedding] and my mother immediately asked for pictures. When she saw the bouquet she exclaimed, "gorgeous!"

Thank you, Savaria and Herve - it was an honor and joy to design the florals for your wedding. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness and love! Xx
