Guastavinos is a gorgeous venue underneath the Queensboro Bridge. It has enormous vaulted ceilings and beautiful lighting.
I was thrilled when Amanda and Steven asked me to create the decor for their wedding.
Here is a sneak peak of the flowers, I am hoping we will get some professional photos soon.
This is such a great space to work in. With soaring ceilings, you have to go tall. We combined hydrangea with babies breath and quince branches to create dramatic centerpieces.
This wedding was three days after Valentine’s day so we took a quick break on the 15th from being neck deep in Red flowers and switched gears on the 16th to be neck deep in White flowers.
For the ceremony we lined the aisle with candles trimmed with birch and created an arch with willow branches and quince. The arch was made in 2 pieces so it could be taken apart after the ceremony.
For the head table, we created a more intimate setting with pillar candles, mercury glass pedestals and groupings of white flowers.
Amanda and Steven loved the results.
Unfortunately I was rushing around and didn’t take the time to photograph her bouquet. I can’t wait to see the professional photos.
Congratulations to the newly married couple.Share on Facebook
