New Jersey Wedding Florist: Impromptu Photo Shoot with Laura in NYC

Recently, my husband and I visited his sister and her fiancé in New York City.  With all of the gorgeous flowers for sale on the sidewalks, I just had to buy some and make a bouquet.

We stopped at The Trailer Park Lounge for drinks and food.  What better place to create the bouquet?!  People probably thought that I was crazy.  I love the vibrant colors of the ranunculus, mums, and freesia.  I am so happy that Laura agreed to model for me.  We had a great time finding random places in NYC to take pictures.  Plus, Scott is a great assistant, especially when he demonstrates how to pose!  LOL  Unfortunately, he will not allow me to pot the pictures of him.

After spending at beautiful day in New York City, we went to a cherry blossom festival in New Jersey outside of Montclair.  So, this turned into a two-day shoot!  Hope you enjoyed these pictures as much as me!

Delaware Floral Designer: Winterthur Point-to-Point

The first Sunday of every May brings the feel of Springtime and the steeplechase races at Winterthur Point-to-Point.  My husband and I have been able to attend this event numerous times, and we always have a great time.  Can you ask for a more gorgeous day to spend outside?!

After the Kentucky Derby yesterday, it is nice to see everyone dressed up today for the races in Delaware.  Who doesn’t love the over-the-top fashion?!

My new obsession has been designing and creating these derby inspired hats.  I made this floral fascinator for Christina to wear to Point-to-Point.  Doesn’t she look beautiful?!

I loved making this out of monestra leaves, aspidistra, Dendrobium orchids, and freesia.  This hat will definitely stand out in the crowd!!!

Delaware Wedding Florist: Alyssa & Ian’s Engagement Shoot

Alyssa and Ian are about the cutest couple I have ever seen.  Megan of Honey Bee Photography captured their love in their magical engagement shoot at the enchanting Gibraltar Gardens in Wilmington, Delaware last fall.

Alyssa and Ian got engaged at Disneyland in California.  How awesome is that?!  I absolutely love the touch of Disney with the carved Mickey pumpkin they used in their engagement photos.  They wanted to have their pictures taken in a beautiful garden that was kind of reminiscent of Beauty and the Beast.  I think that Gibraltar Gardens was the perfect site!

I loved designing and creating a whimsical floral crown for Alyssa with grapevine, ranunculus, and succulents.  I think that it looked gorgeous on Alyssa!

Delaware Wedding Florist: Veil Trends Trunk Show at Jennifer’s Bridal

I wanted to share my pictures from moments before the Veil Trends Couture Trunk Show began at Jennifer’s Bridal.  They are scheduling appointments through Sunday, March 15th.  Contact Jennifer’s Bridal today to come in and see of the gorgeousness going on!

I even tried one of the hair accessories by Veil Trends Couture on.  The veils are AMAZING!  I especially loved the one with the black lace trim on a cathedral length veil.

With all of this cold, wet weather that we have had recently, I decided that I wanted to bring a little sunshine into Jennifer’s Bridal.  I cannot wait for Springtime to be here!  I repurposed a birdcage and birdbath and filled them with vibrant colors.  The floral arrangements were in a garden inspired style with lilies, tulips, daisies, garden roses, pompom mums, daffodils, irises, and hyacinths.  Can you imagine your wedding with these flowers?  Do you like the style?

The next trunk show at Jennifer’s Bridal is March 27th through March 29th.  They will be showcasing the incredible bridal gowns from Hayley Paige.  These gowns are breathtaking!  Contact Jennifer’s Bridal to schedule your appointment.  For a full list of upcoming trunk shows, please check out their events page.

Each trunk show at Jennifer’s Bridal allows me to showcase a different style and color palette.  I love being able to be creative!  I can’t wait to share what I come up with for the next one!

If you’re looking for a unique, designer wedding gown, then Jennifer’s Bridal is the best place to go!  They are a great boutique bridal shop in Hockessin, Delaware.  And as always, I would love to schedule a floral design consultation for your wedding or special event.  Have a nice weekend everyone!

Rehoboth Beach Wedding Florist: Floral Stylized Photo Shoot with Hannah & Giannah

In anticipation of the upcoming wedding season, I wanted to share this floral stylized photo shoot of Hannah and her daughter Giannah.  It was a damp and breezy day at the beach, but any day at the beach is wonderful!

The pictures were taken at the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk.  Seeing this boardwalk always brings back fond memories from my childhood.  Once I can see the Dolle’s sign, I get filled with excitement just like I did when I was a little girl.

The inspirational bridal bouquet and floral hairpieces warmed this day right up with their vibrant color scheme.  Red dahlias, orange protea, yellow roses and coxcomb bursting with greenery make the perfect selection for beach wedding flowers.

I hope that these pictures inspire you for your wedding day.  Contact me to schedule your own bridal consultation.
