Purple Theme Wedding at The Garrison, Garrison, NY on May 25, 2012

The ceremony space at The Garrison has SPECTACULAR views! Our company, Engaging Floral Designs, provided all the flower arrangements.  We decorated the bittersweet arbor in greenery with a center arrangement of lilies, mums, snapdragons, stock, and other greens and accented the structure with curly willow in bloom.
The aisle markers were very sweet - we designed little bud vases with purple and white toned flowers such as mums, lisianthus, stock, and roses with an anemone accent. After the ceremony, the bud vases were used on the cocktail tables!

The bouquets did double duty as personal flowers and then afterward as adornments for the guest book table once the bridal party no longer needed their bouquets!  The bride's bouquet had roses, calla lilies, stock and peonies in it.  The bridesmaid bouquets had lisianthus, roses and stock.

The walk down the aisle is just amazing... our client opted to have the aisle lined with lavender rose petals to complete the look:

On to the reception, all the tables in the room featured low centerpieces so that guests could enjoy the amazing views that The Garrison offers.  The arrangements were all purple and dark purple tones with flowers such as anemones, roses, stock, purple and white hydrangea, and greenery:

What a lovely wedding for such a sweet couple - so wonderful to work with you both!

Doral Arrowwood Wedding Flowers in Rye Brook, NY on May 27, 2012

In the ballroom, while the ceremony was about to start, the pin spots were turned on to illuminate the tall centerpieces.  The curly willow was forced to bloom some greenery to accent the structure.  Gladiolus in full bloom provided added height and volume.

On alternating tables, to save money, the client opted for low arrangements in bubble bowls in the color scheme.

Just prior to guests arriving, the ceremony arrangements were placed outside - lucky for the bride and groom today was a beautiful day and the rain never made a presence!

Orchids and Curly Willow Arrangements

Here's a simple look for those that are not big flower fans but want to still have pieces that make a statement in a room with very high ceilings.  Trumpet vases with white dendrobium orchids, oncidium yellow orchids and tall curly willow branches.
