Your Hudson Valley Wedding Needs These Wildly Beautiful Arrangements

Share

Skip the standard bouquet in favor of these nature-inspired arrangements and centerpieces designed by talented local florists.

Three area florists create designs that are lush, layered, and (mostly) locally sourced. Complementary but not matchy-matchy, bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces combine to stunning effect at The Briarcliff Manor.

Why it works

“Strong pinks give the arrangement a bold feeling, softened by apricot hues,” notes Bedford Village Flower Shoppe president Anthony Chillemi. “Injections of peach bridge the juxtaposing bold pinks and soft apricots for a striking balance.”
