Bridget & Brad- July 2, 2011

Bridget and Brad's fun, summer wedding was definitely a memorable one for us here at L&L. There blooms resembled their favorite Syracuse University football team with vibrant blue and orange blooms. I will never forget forget the look on Bridget's face and the happy tears that followed when I presented her bouquet to her. Nuptials took place at the Blessed Kateri Church and a night of celebration was held at the Links at Union Vale in Lagrangeville NY.

Fall Inspiration

With winter just around the corner, I am hanging onto my favorite season  for as long as I can...dreaming and finding inspiration for next years Autumn weddings. Here are some great ideas for you brides planning your fall 2012 nuptials...enjoy!

The perfect way to add a bit of elegance to your fall decor is to combine those warm autumn blooms with a silver love this look!

Give your pumpkins a sophisticated sparkle with Martha Stewart's line of fine glitters. Many fun colors to choose from, have fun mixing it up!

Mini pumpkins are a fun, budget friendly idea for the escort card table. Spraying them in either gold or silver is an  easy way to bring elegance to the decor.

Lanterns and pumpkins definitely give that rustic warm feel to a chilly fall wedding.  
Here is another way that pumpkins and lanterns can be combined...this would be a great look for an indoor mantle as well.

What a delicious idea for guest favors!
Branches are a fabulous option for you economical brides...very rustic and simple. Add a few blooms and even some candles for a more dramatic look.
