Popular Wedding Flowers

By: Colleen Lennehan


With thousands of flowers growing all over the world it may seem hard to pick a handful of favorites, but when it comes to weddings, some blooms are chosen over and over again.

Many brides already have their “must have” flower list in mind before they slide their engagement ring on, while others need time to decide what blooms will go into their bridal bouquet.

We’ve created a list of 15 flowers that have been steadily popular over the past year. Terri designed each of these floral creations within the past few years and we gathered them all because they highlight one of the most used flowers by brides and grooms!

Real Wedding: Kristy and Brockett

By: Colleen Lennehan


Kristy and Brockett said “I do” in classic fairy tale form at the Riverview on October 16th, 2016.

Their entire day was filled with romance and tropical touches in both their ceremony and reception.

Kristy’s bridal bouquet of phalaenopsis orchids was beautifully unique. Terri mirrored the bridesmaids bouquets by using similar white and purple orchids. The groom and groomsmen wore orchid boutonnieres to carry the flower trend throughout the wedding party.

The couple married under an arch covered in twinkling lights and lush flowers. We used hydrangea, roses, stock, wisteria, and fairy lights to create this romantic backdrop for Kristy and Brockett. Their aisle was lined with clusters of roses and hydrangea, tied with multicolored ribbons to match their color scheme.

After they sealed their marriage with a kiss the couple and their friends and family went inside to celebrate their love. Submerged purple orchids in various cylinder sizes sat in the center of each table, while smaller arrangements lined their sweetheart table.

We loved working with this couple and helping their wedding day visions come to life.

Real Wedding: Shannon and Mo

By: Colleen Lennehan


Emerald green and glittery gold tones painted a vintage color scheme for Shannon and Mo’s September wedding.

The two sweethearts said “I do” at Saint Paul Church in Glastonbury, later celebrating their love at Infinity Music Hall in Hartford.

Besides the obvious sentiment of their wedding day, it was even more special booking at this venue in particular because Shannon’s father has a collection of guitars that are showcased there!

Earthy greens and creams paired well with gold, the combo created a vintage glam feel, perfect for a venue that holds so much musical history.

For Shannon’s bouquets Terri used white garden roses, ranunculi, freesia, succulents and gold seeded eucalyptus. The brides and bridesmaids bouquets all matched, the only difference was the size, allowing Shannon’s to bloom just a bit bigger!

The guys wore white ranunculi boutonnières, dressed up with some ivy leaves and gold seeded eucalyptus.

The intimate space at Infinity Music Hall was perfect for their reception. The stage was reserved for the stars of the night, Shannon and Mo, who placed their sweetheart table right under the spotlight.

The centerpieces were similar to the bouquets, each with hydrangea, roses, and ranunculi. We used mercury glass vases, each rested on a gold glittered runner.

We were so happy to be apart of their big day, and loved working with the venue during their first wedding! Congratulations to Shannon and Mo, we hope their future holds nothing but love songs and laughter!

Real Wedding: Nikole and Brendan

For Nikole and Brendan McCarthy, October 2nd, 2015 was a day painted in burgundy, blush, and gold.

The couple said “I do!” at the Lake of Isles in Stonington, Connectict, surrounded by a sweet bridal party of four gals and four guys.

Nikole’s bouquet of roses, gerbera daisies, hydrangea, ranunculus, astible, and gold seeded eucalyptus popped against her white sweetheart gown.

The reception centerpieces were altered a bit but mirrored the bouquets base flowers of roses, hydrangea, and gerbera daisies. A mix of these high and low arrangements, in either gold stands or vases, created a rich romantic feel.

Another area where flowers bloomed during their wedding was atop their sugary sweet cake. We placed blush and burgundy roses around the tiers, adding some color and natural decor to the cake.

Nikole and Bredan’s big day became a classic example of what a dream wedding can look like!
