What is the first thing that comes to your mind when I say New York City? Since I am an NYC florist, many images come to my head, but even for those who have never been in the city that never sleeps, the Statue of Liberty is almost always the answer. I don't know what it is about this magnificent statue, perhaps its iconic location or the triumphant pose. Well, it is so beautiful that our couple chose to tie the knot at a wedding venue that sits right across from her, and the result was magical.
Jackie and Jack not only have matching names which I believe are cute, but amazing ideas for their wedding day. To start with, we have the wedding venue, The Liberty Warehouse, located in the historic Pier 41 and built around the 1850s. This former shipping warehouse has a new life and serves as an event venue, with its magical views of the statue of liberty.
One of the main features is the lovely outdoor space to host your ceremony with the sea and the statue as your backdrop. As you step inside, you get the feeling of the warehouse with the exposed pipelines and columns across the venue. And your eye is instantly drowned to the many windows surrounding the building from where you can catch natural light coming in during the day and the city lights at night.
Being a NYC wedding florist, I live for weddings with romantic lighting, candlelit ceremonies, and of course, beautiful blooms all over the place. The floral concept for Jackie and Jack's wedding was classic, with plenty of white, ivory, and greens. And it all started with a bridal bouquet inspired in English and hand-tied styles, with a combination of flowers and foliage. The wedding arch was a focal element for the ceremony, with an organic shape and following the classic hues. We set floating candles at each side of the chairs and framed the arch.
Fairy lights covered the warehouse ceilings for the reception, setting a magical mood for the evening. A combination of high and low centerpieces filled the room with blooms; for the low centerpieces, we kept a very natural shape, almost as if you had a small garden in your table. And there were two options for the high centerpieces, one very classic with a round shape and another one that simulated a tree with some curly willow and led candles hanging from the branches. table
I was thrilled to be part of this celebration as their NYC florist, and I enjoyed seeing the results. The whole decoration perfectly fitted ivory tablecloths, wooden floors, and wooden Chiavari chairs.
@Seangallery did an amazing capturing every moment of this loving union, and @theweddingplanandcompany nailed every single detail. One of my favorite photos is when Jackie and Jack are posing with an exposed brick wall as background, you can see how they glow in happiness and love, pure magic.
