Wedding Ceremony Flowers & Decor

As the couple said ‘I do’, they stood underneath a lush chuppah with a crown of white hydrangea, white Hawaiian dendrobium orchid sprays and white garden roses. The bottom of the chuppah was outfitted with a pleated fabric finish. Between the soft uplighting and the suspended twinkling gold mercury votives along the outside back wall of custom white drapery, the ceremony exuded a romantic elegance.

Wedding Bouquets & Boutonniere

The bride’s classic bouquet was created with white roses and hydrangea. The bridesmaid’s formal clutches of fresh white roses were a nice contrast to the the black dresses they wore. The groom’s boutonniere was a white rose with eucalyptus seed accent.

Wedding Reception Centerpieces

Inside during the reception, guests sat at tables boasting elegant floral centerpieces of white hydrangea, roses and stock in tall glass Palace vases. Romantic monet candle stands surrounded the formal centerpieces on the ivory dupioni silk linens we provided.

Special Features

Our team used soft amber/pink up lighting throughout the room to create the ambient mood. We also used pin spot lighting on all of the guest tables to highlight the centerpieces. For the reception, we repurposed elements from the ceremony to decorate the bandstand staging area. The floral chuppah crown was used to adorn the dance floor area while the wall from the ceremony was used behind the band’s stage.

As always, it was a pleasure working with party planner, Melisa Ludlow Imberman and a huge thank you to Fred Marcus Studio for capturing all the details!

Wedding Flowers & Wedding Design at New York Botanical Garden

August 22nd, 2016

 

The Bride and Groom kiss in the GardenAs the Bride and Groom began planning their New York Botanical Garden wedding they had one advantage over other couples: the Bride’s family have been celebrating milestones for years with parties designed by X-Quisite Flowers & Events, Inc.! 

15 years ago we provided decor for the Bride’s Bat Mitzvah – and her sister’s Bat Mitzvah a couple of years later. Trusting a wedding vendor is much simpler when you’ve worked together before, and the wedding design process is smoother when you’ve seen what your wedding designer can do. Not to mention the daunting task of creating striking floral arrangements for a wedding at a historic landmark that boasts 28 specialty gardens! Luckily, X-Q designed weddings at NY Botanical in 2014 and 2015.
