In Rhode Island, the season so often dictates the event. We forget that even without a warm summer breeze, our romantic seaside vistas are still there for our viewing pleasure — and so are our grand and historic properties that easily will take your breath away. That’s why we’re thrilled to be a part of a late fall wedding this week at the gorgeous Hotel Viking in Newport.
The bride selected dark red wine as her color of choice, and the lushness of her centerpieces (a first look pictured below) will surely warm up the chilly seaside breezes off the Atlantic.
The monochromatic Black Pearl roses, Chilean peonies, Dutch amaryllis and calla lily will be accentuated by flickering candlelight.
The bride will carry a similar red-wine-rich bouquet down the isle, and, in an unexpected twist, her bridesmaids will hold all-white versions of her bouquet, with roses, peonies, amaryllis and calla lily.
We’re excited to see the whole wedding come together later this week, as we’re sure it’s going to be a once-in-a-lifetime event.
If you’re considering a winter wedding, please feel free to contact us at the shop at 274-3929. We’re booking for late fall/early winter 2013 (can you believe it?).
One of our favorite places for weddings is Whispering Pines. Last fall, we were lucky to get to work with a lovely couple that decided to get married at Whispering Pines. The groom wore his military uniform while the bride wore a stunning strapless dress. They chose to use many brightly hued flowers that matched the groom’s uniform. It was a beautiful ceremony.
I met Jessica in December of 2010 while traveling on an airplane. I noticed that she was looking at a wedding magazine, so I approached her and we started to talk. She mentioned that she was going to be getting married in October of 2011 and was looking for a florist. Soon afterwards, she called me, we met at the shop, and decided that we were a good match for each other.
We have been incredibly lucky to have some amazing couples come to us to have their wedding flowers for their weddings. Laura and Brendan are just another one of these couples. They are perfectly suited for each other and their love for each other radiates to all around them. It was such a pleasure to have met them and to share in their special day! We wish them all the best in their future together.
We are so excited for Valentine’s Day! We just got in the most beautiful shipments of flowers from Holland, Ecuador, and California. There are roses (both long stem and regular length) and rose sprays of all colors, calla lillies, orchids, tulips, lillies, and iris, among the many choices of flowers. One of my favorites are sweet peas, which are only available in February and over the summer months. Stop by to smell the roses and have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
Here’s a rose for you!
This Sunday, January 9th, Blooming Blossoms will be displaying some bridal arrangements at Whispering Pines’ Booth at the Southern New England Bridal Expo. This year, the trend for bridal flowers is bright and bold. If you have a chance, come by the booth!
Hi, my name is Pam and I have owned my own flower shop since 1986. I started working with a friend of mine who had her own flower shop, and I fell in love with flowers. To this day, my passion for flowers has only bloomed stronger.
I hope you join me as I share my experiences in the floral industry. I’ll be visiting the flower markets to choose the best flowers. You can also follow my brides through their wedding days.
I am excited to begin blogging. See you soon!
