Thoughts & musings about flowers, photography, weddings and people.

Lisa + Dan / Battery Gardens / Battery Park, NY

Lisa and Dan got married earlier this year at Battery Gardens, a waterfront restaurant with panoramic views of the East and Hudson River in Battery Park. 

Lisa wanted something classic and romantic but with a punch of color so we decided on big, pretty blooms that could stand on their own such as coral peonies, blush garden roses, and white french tulips. She also wanted to make sure we incorporated a special surprise into the reception for all of the guests: beautiful clay candle holders that she had made by hand in the months leading up to the wedding!

One thing to know about Lisa and Dan is that they are two of the most incredibly sweet people. They gave me an invitation to stay for the reception and celebrate with them so I was able to witness them get married, with the river's edge as their backdrop and the sun setting behind them. It was lovely. By the end of it all, it felt like we were friends. Lisa and Dan, thanks for giving me such a great experience at my first official wedding as a floral designer...I won't forget it.

Cheers you guys!
