Aria Bridal Show

By: Colleen Lennehan


The Aria hosted their annual Tasting and Vendor Showcase event last week, and we were thrilled to be apart of the evening.

We set our table up with “garden glamour” in mind. We draped a blush glittered runner down the center of the table, added a few mercury votives, and attached a ruffled skirt to the front; we loved the overall mix of glitter and earthy florals, as do many upcoming brides!

Terri created four completely different bouquets to highlight the wide range of flower possibilities. The first one sparkled and bloomed larger than any other rose we’ve seen. She used one white rose and dozens of petals to create a giant “single” rose bouquet. We love the uniqueness of this and how it shows off the beauty and simplicity of a “single” rose.

The next bouquet also appeals to the more daring bride as it only had three components: strung orchids, eucalyptus, and one massive succulent. The balance of tropical and organic in this bouquet is quite lovely, and would pair nicely with just about any color scheme.

The third bouquet shows off a classic style, but is still just as stunning as any other. Terri combined scabiosa pods, quicksand roses, white lisianthus , brunea, and eucalyptus in this sweet bouquet, giving it a natural look.

The last bouquet had echoes of ocean waves and rustling palm leaves. This tropical beauty had lush peonies, and fragrant garden roses mixed with white orchids, a classic island flower. Green ivy and two strands of orchids hung from the bouquet as well to elevate the look even more.

In addition to the bouquets Terri also created two centerpieces, one tall and one short, as well as a stunning birch arch backdrop.

The short centerpiece sat in a silver fairytale vase, topped with roses, hydrangea, stock, and eucalyptus, a popular look this year, but the tall arrangement really caught the eye of brides and grooms throughout the night.

Thin birch branches, mixed with white orchid strands extended out of the centerpiece, made of glittered hydrangea, white hydrangea, orchids, spray roses, and silver lemon leaves, while white feathers hung from the bottom. The entire glamorous piece sat on a clear pilsner vase, filled with birch branches.

To complete our vendor table we set up a birch arch with suspended succulent terrariums and strands of glitzy gems. Bunches of eucalyptus were added to the corners to incorporate the earthy feel we used throughout the table!

This was one of our favorite bridal shows to be in, we loved the overall outcome of our table and met many wonderful brides and grooms we hope to see again!

Wadsworth Mansion Wedding Show

This past Sunday dozens of wedding vendors gathered at the stunning Wadsworth Mansion in Middletown for their annual wedding show.

The venue, packed with brides and grooms, is a favorite of ours to work with.

Terri Krisavage Weddings and Events incorporated an all natural look for our display, a trend that is becoming more and more popular.

This earthy style allows the flowers and greens to create a beautiful “imperfect” look, in comparison to other traditional arrangement and bouquet styles.

We at Terri Krisavage Weddings and Events decided to really highlight all this trend has to offer through our bouquets, tablescape, mantle decor, and unique floral crowns.

Roses, hyacinth, ranunculus, amaryllis, fringe tulips, and succulents (among other stunning florals) were all used to create an organic garden feel, while hanging amaranthus draped from the table contrasted with a lush, vibrant look.

Another growing trend beloved by brides, bridesmaids, and flower girls are flower crowns: an earthy and creative addition to any wedding.

For the wedding show our team made three stunning floral crowns to wear throughout the day. We mainly used eucalyptus, bay leaves, succulents, and roses to complete the fairytale feel.

We absolutely loved the outcome of this all natural look for the wedding show and hope this sparked some inspiring ideas for you!
