Any good love story starts with flowers, right? It was my birthday, and I was young and new to NYC. And there, right in the office for all my coworkers to see, was a gorgeous arrangement. My heart swooned, (no matter they were sent by my mother), as the florals were captivating.
The next year, I received a cake delivered by BAKED and topped with breathtaking flowers by, who else? Élan – the Tribeca florist whose style always filled me with so much love.
But what is love if not shared? So, I knew who to call for my friend’s bridal shower, and when my boyfriend popped the question, I knew who had to be with me on that most important day.
I never imagined the first happy tears I would shed on my wedding day was when I saw the bridal party bouquets. I knew then that it was all going to be perfect. From the church to the reception staircase, to the fireplace mantel to the dining room arrangements to the bridal suite -- they created the magic anyone would dream about. And if you don’t believe me, there are gorgeous pictures to prove it. Roses, hydrangeas, orchids, ranunculus eucalyptus, and many more, all at the perfect moment of bloom.
