Ranunculus is one of nature most gorgeous flowers. There are over 400 species of Ranunculus . Their bright and vibrant petals come in different shapes and sizes. Ranunculus heads range from 3”-6” large. Their beautiful ruffle edged petals make this flower sought after by many brides to add Ranunculus to their bridal bouquet and centerpiece. The receiving of Ranunculus from your admirer means that you are young and radiant, attractive, and charming.
Stephanie was so much fun to work with. Her designs definitely reflected her sweet personality. Stephanie loved succulents, so we added a few into her mix of hydrangea, roses, tea roses, eucalyptus, and sweet touches of silver brunia pods. She rented our “Welcome to our wedding” chalk sign, which added a cute personalized touch to their ceremony entrance. We couldn’t of imagined a happier couple, and we wish them all the best!

Ha & Robert
Hamilton Manor – Hamilton, NJ
We are in love with this November wedding for so many reasons. At the first meeting with Ha, we had discussed a romantic garden style wedding with vibrant fall flowers with touches of pale blue. So much romance in the air along with the perfect collection of roses in bright red, bronze and gold caramel tones accented with draping eucalyptus foliage. These ethereal organic garden bouquets were finished and detailed with long streamers from the bridesmaids dress fabrics. Love this!
The ceremony began in the early evening at The Hamilton Manor in Hamilton, NJ. The romantic setting was magical with a candlelit aisle and scattered petals. The classic white pipe and drape back drop created a simple, understated intimacy.
The reception room at The Hamilton Manor was gorgeous with hardwood floors and the ambient lighting. The centerpieces varied between low lush with pillar candles and tall designs on gold vases. The cakes were adorable, three miniature wedding cakes in blues and golds created perfectly. These photos are my favorite of the season! To see more amazing photographs visit www.somethingbluenj.com
So happy to be a part of this special day!
Geode Cake – These rocky confections have the look of a cave inside, with sugary crystals shining through. The crystal formations come in every color imaginable, sometimes even bi-colored or rainbow.
Drip Cake –These wedding cakes look like they just came from the candy store. Literally dripping in chocolate, these confectionery beauties will make a statement.
Monogrammed Lace Cakes – White lace is synonymous with weddings. Brides have lace on their gown, invitations, and now why not their wedding cakes. Not every lace cake is created alike, making each one of a kind.
Clustered Cakes – Having a few small cakes to add depth and make for a unique table design, is a personal favorite of ours.
Nicked named “Tubers”, they are the national flower to Mexico. These fabulous blooms originated in South America and Mexico, in their mountain regions. One of the more hardy flowers to grow, as long as they are protected from wind, making the mountain range perfect protection. Now, mostly grown in North America in the Pacific North West, by farmers, these beauties make one hardy crop. They grow in between mid-summer to first frost, and take about 8 weeks to grow once planted. They need full sunlight, at least 6-8 hours.
The Dahlias bloom in a variation of sizes, from a 10”-12” dinner plate to a small 2” Lolli pop size. Their wide range of colors include red, pink, white, orange, yellow, purple, and many more. Some of the species may have bi-colored stripes, while others may have a variation of color just on the tips of the petals. Contrary to popular belief, there are no black dahlias, they are actually a deep burgundy color.
Florist use dahlias for almost every kind of celebration, while they are in season. The flower meaning of Dahlias is it that they are a symbol of an everlasting union, which make them great choices for engagements, weddings, and anniversary.

From the first time we met Sammie and Kevin, We knew that they were a true love story. Sammie loves flowers, and Kevin loves Sammie. She really wanted to create a lush and romantic garden party wedding. We used a variety of garden roses, tea roses, and hydrangea. The DuPont Country Club was a wonderful setting for her whimsical and lush garden celebration! A special thanks to Heather Curley of Twelve Stones Photography for sharing their photos with us!
A new spin on an old classic cascade bouquet is making a comeback. Although the round, lush, hand-tied bouquets is still very popular. The new cascade is bringing drama and romance in a big way. With draping orchids, textured amaranthus and vines, these designs offer a certain whimsy spilling with soft trails. Many of our brides want a version in a tear drop shape that is not as long trailing but still offers a graceful drape.
For the love of Nature- We love the trend of loose gathered garden bouquets. This field grown and just picked feel seems to have more air whipped into its bundles. Unexpected elements of thistles, succulents and herbs, add texture and a bit of treasure to a custom bridal bouquet.
Vanessa and Balal had a beautiful spring day for their wedding at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. This mosaic garden is an amazing, eclectic venue in the city! Vanessa loves purple! Her bouquet was a cascade style of four different variations of Orchids and Ivory Roses. Thank you Michael Chadwick for sharing these beautiful photos with us!
Danielle and Kyle were married earlier this May. Danielle loved the idea of the bright red flowers popping against the ocean blue bridesmaid dresses. We loved that she chose a bold paring! Congratulations to you both, we wish you all the best! Thank you to Douglas Photographics for sharing her photos with us!
