Garden romantic meets strong geometric shapes in this wedding from June at the Boston Harbor Hotel.
We worked with our clients, Eleanor and Nigel, to create a beautiful stylish design fitting for the space and occasion with a color palette of ivory, peaches, and coral.

Bridal and Bridesmaid bouquets featured those gorgeous “Coral Charm” peonies that we can never, ever get enough of, “Juliet” and “Caramel Antique” garden roses, along with some sweet little lovely spray garden roses called “Lea Romantica.” Added touches of scented white jasmine vine, mint, and sweet pea gave some gestural touches to the bouquets and centerpieces.

There are great options out there beyond calla lilies for boutonnieres (not that we don’t like calla lilies…) like small garden roses here with touches of jasmine flower and vine for the groom.

The ceremony and reception took place at the hotel, overlooking the harbor. We did tall arrangements filled with white hybrid delphinium, ivory spirea, roses, and peonies to complement the bouquets:

Centerpieces were our lush organic style but in more geometric containers. We’re big fans of footed vases, urns, and other unique things but it was great to see how good this kind of floral style still looks (and maybe a bit in contrast with the container that holds it too):

And lastly a sea of linens, glass, and florals…just really, really pretty:

Thank you again to Eleanor and Nigel for having Petalena be part of your day; and to Simi Rabinowitz for the beautiful photographs.
