Yesterday I met with my wedding florist to finalize all the details for the big day. We’ll be using vintage pitchers, silver and white and soft-colored ceramic, as the vessels for our table centerpieces, filled with garden roses, ranunculus, and whatever else the florist finds at our local flower farm, in shades of peach, pink and white. I am absolutely loving the trend toward Dutch still-life inspired arrangements, capturing textural and colorful blooms and fruit, artfully composed. Gorgeous images below via the talented Brooklyn based florist/stylist, Amy Merrick.
