“To everything, there is a season, and there is a reason for every season.”
Whether your wedding is on a charming Hudson Valley farm or a rooftop terrace with spectacular views of DUMBO, a helpful point of reference to narrow your palette are seasonal blooms. Let the summer sun be a guide to an illustrative spiral of ripe foliage. This time of year, flowers are a beautiful parade of blue and purple hues. Delphiniums and gladioluses elevated by a silver-gray place setting combine for modern elegance. This pairing can easily cross over to a bohemian fete; an ethereal mélange of lavender and hydrangea with opal and linen will cast hearts in the eyes of any gypsy-soul. Adding a tapestry of morning glories woven into a ceremonial arch is reverent of love and peace. For a welcoming, rustic reception, cornflowers and asters tied together with black-eyed Susans are emblematic of a bride who wears cowboy boots and lace.
Katie and Matt are a fun couple who drove a sunny yellow golf-cart to greet guests. Katie held tight to her bouquet of hydrangea and peonies, an antique broach pinned inside a succulent, and Matt flashed his cubist blue socks as he steered the cart over rolling hills. The outdoor reception was on the gorgeous greens of their family’s campground in Slumber Valley. Under the tent, the table-scape reminiscent of Ann-Margaret’s yellow dress against the opening screen to Bye Bye Birdy. Billy Buttons inside cobalt vases counterpoised the blue lace runners set atop crisp, white tablecloths. Ferns were used as centerpieces, creating an energized palette of cheerful blues, greens, and yellows.
