September is All About Weddings

Well, that is actually a bit misleading as September keeps us busy with all kinds of things from Weddings, to Funerals, School Decorating Events and the list goes on. I must admit, however, that creating wedding flowers for sweet and deserving couples is always a stand out at our shop. Take last weekend for example. We had three weddings and although we had to really hustle to get everything created, delivered and set up, it's such rewarding work. The photo above is for our beautiful bride Amanda K (yes we had 2 Amanda's in one day) and her handsome hubby Jon. Their wedding took place at the Boat House at Mercer County Park and although unseasonably warm, the day was spectacular and the lake view amazing. Are you planning a wedding for 2018? Now is the time to book your date with us!! To see more of our wedding designs be sure to visit our wedding website at www.perfectweddingflowers.com  

Scenes from a May Farm Wedding

The sun is shining and we have finished setting up another Farm Wedding in Hopewell so we had to share a few of the unique elements that both we and the bridal family created! Below is a pretty close up of Bride Brittany's Bridal Bouquets (say that 10 times fast). Created using cut succulent plants, cream stock, lavender spray roses, queen anne's lace, purple waxflower and a very pale lavender hydrangea.  The driveway leading to the farm is long so we placed hanging mason jars of flowers lining  ~ these even have a light in the bottom to glow as guests leave in the evening!   The family really got creative and hung a few ladders from the garage ceiling with lanterns! This must have looked amazing when the light came down!  Here's something fun! The farm ordered a few bales of hay that were 4 feet tall and we created huge letters made from fresh moss in honor of the bride and groom! After the wedding , the hay will feed to horses!  Once inside under the tent

A Vineyard Wedding

This past weekend we had the pleasure of creating wedding flowers for Nicole and Kyle, who held their wedding at Hopewell Valley Vineyard in Hopewell, NJ. Mother Nature was in rare form and I honestly think that it was one of the best weather days of the whole year. Using all white flowers, relying heavily on Dahlias, Hydrangeas and Garden Roses, the arrangements were earthy but elegant. On each side of the tent we created large displays of hydrangea in tall clear glass cylinder vases.  Cocktail tables, both high and low were placed around the vineyard and inside the meeting space. We especially loved the wooden chairs and stool not to mention the table cloths that intermixed a soft burlap style with other sporting a beige and white check pattern.  The 28 elegantly appointed guest tables each had a floral centerpieces measuring 12" high by 14" wide. The centerpieces were created in low dishes and then filled with flowers in shades of white and cream, which included

Another Busy Weekend at the Flower Shop

First off, a super big thank you to all my staff who did an amazing job this Weekend arranging and setting up 4 weddings and multiple other events. Fall is certainly on it's way and this weekends events were a combination of late summer tones and early fall ones with shades of pinks and peaches once again.  Anna's a bouquet was a natural blend of country style blooms such as a Queen Anne's lace, berries, gumphria, millet and eucalyptus along with elegant blooms such as ranunculus, tea roses, bouvardia, dahlias and freesia. I especially love the burlap ribbon treatment on the stems. Her bouquet smelled and looked amazing in person!   Moving on to Heidi's bridal bouquet - hot raspberry pinks, greens and white in the form of roses, orchids, mini callas and ranuculus along with accents of rhinestone spray for a touch of bling.   Moving on to Taotao's bridal bouquet in all shades of peach from light into dark using roses and mini callas.   Moving on

Peaches and Creams for a Country Backyard Wedding

Today's wedding bouquet is just so sweet! Dahlias, Donna Roses, fever few, queen anne's lace, hyperiucm berries, ladies mantle, spray roses and maidenhead ferns combine for a loose and airy bridal bouquet for our bride Carolyn. Don't you just love the natural, fresh picked feel? Soft tones have been popular this summer and most likely this trend will continue into the early fall bridal season. Lorrie's brides maids will each be carrying hand tied bouquets of soft baby's breath. Perfect for a New Jersey back yard wedding in early September!  Are you getting married in 2014 in the Princeton, NJ or Yardley, PA area?  Now is the time to secure your wedding date and we'd love to work with you.

A Back Yard Wedding In September

What a glorious day Patrick and Amber had for their back yard wedding. Setting the stage was the mother and father of the bride's farm  in Hopewell, NJ with lovely views in all directions of fresh green grass and lush trees. The perfect setting for a late September wedding  The bridal party all carried gerbera daisy bouquets. Yellow for the brides maid's and white for the bride. Yellow with accents of greens and creams was the over all color theme for the day.   After driving up a long driveway lined with hanging mason jars filled with yellow solidago asters and tiny white daisies the guests were led past the entrance to the home out into the side yard for the ceremony. This fresh flower wreath and potted mums helps set the tone for the rustic elegance of the decor to come.  When I met with Mother of the Bride Lisa at the family home I was taken by the large, open side yard with it's majestic tree. What a wonderful backdrop for the ceremony. Our iron ar

And the Crowd Goes Wild

We post photos of our wedding designs just about every week so imagine our surprise when I posted this photo on our Facebook Fan Page to have it skyrocket to over 100 shares and at least that many likes and comments? Wow, it just went viral - showing how powerful this color palate of purples and blues is right now. We loved the mixture of flowers used in Bride Rochelle's wedding bouquet - including Cool Water purple roses, Picasso mini callas, purple stock, limonium filler, white stephanotis (with purple pearl centers), purple lisianthus (with buds removed) and deep blue volkenfreiden delphinium.

Scottish Tartan Wedding

Had to share these lovely photos from Kyo Morishima Photography of last months Scottish wedding. I have to say this was a favorite of mine, only because it was so different and fun to create. The grooms flower was a mixture of a pheasant feather a loop of willow, a touch of red hypericum and seeded euc berries and some blue thistle. A tiny piece of the grooms Scottish Tartan finished the look. The brides bouquet also had all those elements but large red tea roses made a very textured but elegant bouquet. Thank you Kyo for the amazing photos and to the Nassau Inn who hosted this amazing wedding.
