Marissa & Ryan 6.18.16

Happy Anniversary to Marissa and Ryan! We can't believe it has already been one year! 

Marissa and Ryan were married on a gorgeous summer day at Indian Pond Country Club. The bridesmaids wore aquamarine which we paired with pops of coral, green, and pink blossoms. The bride also carried a colorful bouquet with soft touches of sweet pea for added texture. 

This wedding was extra special for our Artistic Blossoms family. The bride has been best friends with Camille since childhood, and Camille was so honored to be the Maid of Honor. 

The rich color theme continued into the reception with textural blossoms including hydrangea, peonies, spray roses, and blue thistle. A mix of of the centerpieces incorporated sea glass and starfish to include the bride and groom's love of the sea. It was a spectacular day to celebrate love, friends, and family.

Four Summer Wedding Ideas You'll Love

Summer is wedding season, so let the wedding inspiration begin! Here are four Summer Wedding details that will add fresh inspiration to your dream day.

1. Summer Citrus
Nothing says summer like cold lemonade. Give your wedding some extra zest by mixing in citrus details. Lemons, limes, or oranges can bring color and playful texture into any table scape.

2. Go Green
On trend for Summer 2017 is foliage decor. All-foliage centerpieces or alter pieces can create a lush and dramatic look to your wedding day details. Using greens allows you to introduce a rich balance of texture and fresh, vibrant color. Pair with sleek metallics for a truly sophisticated look. 

 

3. Tie the Knot
Update the Summer Nautical trend with playful details. In addition to wrapping bouquet stems or decorating glassware, mixing rope into the flowers is a unique and dynamic way of incorporating nautical elements. These bridesmaid's bouquets put a sophisticated spin on the classic New England nautical look.

 

4. Fresh Cut Details
Nothing says summer more than green grass. Incorporate grass into your design plan for a lush look. Cubes of grass for cocktail tables or a grass tablescape for holding placecards is a fun and fresh look that is perfect for any summer wedding.

What's your job at Artistic Blossoms?

I am a designer at AB as well as manage the Artistic Blossoms website, blog, and social media. Even though I'm in New York City, I split my time between New York and Boston to get back and design.

What are you doing in New York City? 

Art! I am currently in my last year of my MFA in sculpture. I do installation based work and have a studio in Tribeca. My experience and education as an artist has a huge impact on my work with flowers (and vice versa). Sometimes I even use fresh elements in my art installations!

What do you think about Pantone's Color of the Year for 2017?

I think Greenery is a fresh and luscious color for 2017. It is a color that will translate well with florals. Adding lots of fun textured greens like ferns or banana leaves, green hydrangea, and succulents will add rich natural warmth to any floral display. Bring on the green!

What's the best way to make a table setting truly unique?

Other than beautiful blossoms, I think a vase or vessel can take any centerpiece to the next level. I personally love mercury glass, because it is elegant and delicately reflective. If you have candles mixed on the table, the light shimmers against the mercury glass. I happen to love any metallic touches. 

What’s your favorite trend for 2017?

Bridal Magazines are saying color is going to make a comeback in 2017. I say, woo hoo! I love color and there are so many beautiful blossoms out there in an array of colors. I think for weddings or events, rich palettes can create a look that is fun, while still elegant. Don't get me wrong, subtle palettes are beautiful but color has personality! 


What's the best part of your job?  

Working with my mom and sister. They are so incredibly talented and it is such a gift to get to work with them. We always have fun designing and the AB studio is always filled with laughter and good energy.  

Camille and I also have a fun behind the scenes instagram account called Daughters of AB , be sure to check us out @daughtersofab
