Traveling from London to New York City to get married is very exciting, but also comes with some meticulous planning. When Jenny first contacted me, it was ten days before her wedding. The floral designer she booked months in advance had just canceled. Some people would become frantic, but not Jenny, her inquiry was calm, cheerful and full of optimism.
Jenny wanted her bridal bouquet to be a surprise and asked me select the color palette, flower type and ribbon. When I saw images of her wedding dress, rose gold shoes and some photos of her with her fiancé, I envisioned a polished elegant bouquet with a touch of whimsy.
Photographer, Amber Marlow, planned a fabulous photoshoot and caught every precious moment of the elopement. She lead the couple from the Roxy Hotel to City Hall, through the East Village and over the Brooklyn Bridge. Knowing in advance the couple would be traversing the bustling city streets, I designed Jenny’s bouquet to be durable without compromising style. I included roses, eucalyptus, David Austin garden roses, and the ultimate luxury flower for this time of year, Japanese ranunculus. For an extra special touch, the stems were wrapped with exquisite hand-dyed ribbon by Silk and Willow.
Thank you Jenny and Andrew - It was an honor to design something beautiful for your destination wedding. Wishing you a lifetime filled with happiness, love and more adventures! Xx
