Saying “I do” in a bower of gorgeous florals couldn’t be any more romantic. As you walk down the aisle to meet your beloved, these sumptuous arrangements by Wood Violet, including double tulips, delphinium, olive and bay leaves, anemones, dried lunaria and ranunculus, line your sweet journey.

Your guests will happily indulge in this tasty assortment of charcuterie, cheeses and fruit from Fork It Foods. The table, styled by Et Voila Events, is graced with a bowl of Brownie tulips, Cappuccino roses and sweet peas, highlighted by bunny tail, miscanthus and pampas grasses from Posies & Pine. Understated hand-crafted candlestick holders from Covet & Ginger complete the look.

The well-dressed groom will sport a stylish boutonniere, also from Posies & Pine, that mixes dried and natural flowers, including astilbe, orchid and anemone.

This cake from Meringue Bakery takes the spotlight with pristine simplicity. Crowned with a feathery, ruffled sweep of frosting, it’s elegance itself.

Invitations never looked so inviting. The suite from Saffron Avenue features vibrant orange and sepia highlights, with the details spelled out in sophisticated calligraphy.
