Featured in the inspiration gallery on Grace Ormonde Wedding Style the New York is the 3rd in the City Series, a series of bouquets that are inspired by iconic cities.
New York is full of inspiration but I chose to focus on the architecture for this piece. The fabrics were carefully chosen in a grey tone pallete to pay homage to the large stone and concrete buildings that define Manhattan. The sea of windows that seductively wink back at you throughout the city are represented by the vintage square crystal buttons that you see scattered about the bouquet. Each one plays with the light and will flash rainbows at you if you give them the chance. The vintage faceted crystal balls represent the iconic ball that will drop in Times Square ushering in another year full of promise and intrigue.
Pleated silk chiffon leaves add strong defined lines and contrast with the gentle curve of the silk fabric flowers.
Each flower is hand cut and formed, looking closely you will see two different dupioni silks and a silver silk satin. Freshwater pearls mingle with the rhinestones. Smooth elements compliment textured ones and the entire ensemble marries together to form the New York Bouquet.
Each flower has its own hand wrapped silk stem. The collar is a hand pleated silk organza wrapped in satin ribbon and topped with rhinestones and genuine freshwater pearls.
