Just In Time For Spring: Chic Color Combo Pink & Green!

With spring right around the corner, pink and green is a perfect color combination to make a wedding more… Preppy? Natural? Romantic? Whichever way you want to go with your wedding! There are a variety of ways to utilize the pink and green chic color combo!


When you’re going for a modern look, it seems you can really let your creativity flow. Preppy stripes, fresh fruit, a ring bearer’s pillow made of green flowers, and bold flowers you wouldn’t expect in a bride’s bouquet.


Green floral, leaves, grass, and even moss is a growing trend in wedding decor that lets you showcase natural beauty in its most pure form. Using accents of pink is a surprising way to really let the color stand out.


Pink is a common color for those wanting a traditional, romantic wedding and is usually paired with champagne, white, or another soft color – but don’t be scared to add a completely different shade! Green is a perfect combo and won’t take away from the sophisticated look of your day. It adds dimension to your floral arrangements and creates an aesthetic view.

Stay posted for more chic color combos!

Happy Planning!

Wedding Gown Trends for 2010

It is that time of year again when the anticipation ends! The New York Bridal Market has featured the fabulous 2010 wedding gown collections! There are many wonderful trends being seen in the bridal fashion world this year and we are here to introduce you to a few!

The top wedding gown styles going down the runway in 2010 include slinky silhouettes, ballgown, fifties inspired styles, mermaid, tea-length, and Grecian style.

Many designers are creating gowns to accentuate the brides figure with the silhouette gowns. These gowns are being seen in silk, lace, and satin. The silhouette gown is absolutely stunning on any bride wanting to show off her curves!

The fifties inspired gowns are breath-taking and creative. We love the infinite possibilities that this style of gown offers such as adding a belt at the waist or having an asymmetrical hemline. The fifties fashion is just fun and spontaneous!

A long the lines of the fifties inspired gowns designers are now designing tea-length gowns for a more casual, less traditional wedding. The tea-length gowns are perfect for a bride who loves accessories! With a shorter gown the bride can dress it up with a fabulous pair of shoes or dramatic jewelry! Love this style for spring 2010!

The Grecian style gowns are extreme romantic and elegant. Designers love this style for 2010 because of the high waists and sheer materials! This look is stunning for a formal and idealistic wedding.

One designer that stood out during New York Bridal Market 2010 was Oscar De La Renta with a collection that emcompasses all of the top wedding gown trends for 2010!

2010 is going to be a inspirational year for wedding gowns so have fun with your choice because there is a gown out there for every bride's personality!

Happy planning and shopping!!

Bella Bride: Christie & Ryan Garko

Christie and Ryan Garko had a courtship that lasted over five years prior to their wedding day in December 2009. Their wedding was absolutely stunning with a clean and classic palette of white and ivory floral. The couple selected Perkins Chapel and The Four Seasons Resort for their special and elegant day. The bride planned from multiple states as the groom, Ryan is a Major League Baseball player.

Our gorgeous bride and some of her wedding party pre-ceremony. Mayra Rams-Sanabria and Sonia Trevino provided hair and make-up services for our beautiful wedding party. There were a lot of girls to do, actually a total of 8 bridesmaids and 1 Maton-of-Honor, but like the pros they are, they pulled it off with time to spare for last minute touch-ups.

The ceremony was beautiful at Perkins Chapel designed with white and ivory toned floral to compliment the simplicity of the chapel.

Christie wore a Vera Wang ivory gown accented with a lace bolero and a stunning belt from Warren Barron. She carried a stylish bouquet of all white, ivory, and champagne floral including fluttery peonies, lush hydrangeas, and fluffy garden roses. The bride told Lucy, "I want my bouquet BIG!" It was perfect for our beautiful bride.

The bridesmaid’s wore beautiful gun-metal gowns with jewel accents which were a wonderful backdrop for the all white and ivory toned floral bouquets. The bouquets were a combination of lush garden cabbage roses and hydrangeas.

The reception was designed with elegant floral arrangements at a variety of heights utilizing the wedding’s clean and classic palette of all white, ivory and champagne tones. The reception was accented with silver chandeliers, vases, and candelabras.

The couple added a personal and creative touch to their big day with Cracker Jack and Peanut wedding favors for the guests to represent the couple and Ryan’s career in baseball, which has played a very big role in their lives together. This idea was absolutely adorable!

Christie and Ryan’s wedding was so much fun and we adored this couple. It's actually disappointing sometimes when our bride's wedding day comes and goes, however, we know that we will remain in close contact with them . We were so happy to have been a part of their wedding day! We wish them the very best!

Goodbye 2009 - Hello 2010

Happy Belated New Years Everyone!

We hope everyone had a great introduction to 2010 and are gearing up for a fantastic year! With the new year, we thought this would be the perfect time to reflect and thank the many wonderful brides and vendors we have been fortunate to work with in 2009. Without further ado, here is a "visual" reflection of 2009.

We couldn't be any luckier to have worked with some amazing brides and are eager to start 2010 with an "eventful" bang!

Happy planning all!
