while most of you were hopefully relaxing and bbq this past weekend, we embarked on a couple memorable wedding adventures. first up was a small, intimate wedding at ici in brooklyn. the setting was adorable and complete with a lovely backyard for the couple to exchange vows in. the flowers were vibrant, summery, and fun. we used succulents, dahlias, ranunculus, rosehips, garden roses, zinnia, porcelain vine, and purple basil. the best part was decorating the upstairs area with cut paper streamers, fans, and balls to create a festive dance party setting.
big congrats to nicole & james!
next up was a romantic, rustic wedding in the catskills on sunday. we woke up at the crack of dawn to drive 3.5 hours through hurricane irene's devastation to roxbury, ny. it was well worth the drive when we saw the old, refinished barn where the reception took place and the darling walking bridge that led guests over a stream and to the grove where the ceremony took place. the arrangements were composed of cafe au lait dahlias, juliet garden roses, astilbe, seeded eucalyptus, ranunculus, scabiosa, pears, mini apples, and clematis vine.
the dahlias were extraordinary this past weekend. as you can see they were almost bigger than shel's face. congrats to jessica & mark!
