An early May wedding at the Brooklyn Museum gives way to a bounty of spring florals. LMD was lucky enough to be the last wedding at the museum permitted to use open flames. With that honor, we took full advantage. Setting the Beaux Art Court aglow with copious amounts of candlelight ranging from large ivory pillar candles encased in tall, glass hurricanes to small, individual etched glass votives placed at each guest’s table setting. Hundreds of peonies, including Duchess, Coral Charm and Madam Jules were used to create fluffy and layered center pieces. Glass cloches held specimens of helebores, sword fern, and plum ranunculus while footed mercury cups overflowed with glossy, bright, red cherries and blueberries. Every detail, from the bride’s delicate bouquet of lily of the valley to the white washed trellises climbing with wild smilax was the total embodiment of spring.
