Two weekends ago, I had the honor of creating a Flower Flash Wedding for New York Times best-selling author and former Editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue, Elaine Welteroth and her singer-songwriter husband Jonathan Singletary. In many ways the past three years of creating public floral art installations on the streets of New York, prepared me for their stylish, buoyant and spirited wedding on the front steps of their Brooklyn brownstone apartment. The design process was fast and bountiful, just the way I like it!
The color story and the blooms in this week’s Wedding Flower Flash Box are inspired by Elaine and Jonathan’s blessed day. There are white and coral peonies, sweet peas, delphinium (for something blue) and delicate hellebores. I know this summer will be bittersweet for those who had plans to wed and for their loved ones who were looking forward to witnessing these celebrations. This new wedding box is really a celebration box, intended for family and friends to gift to couples who had to delay and also for couples who have chosen to stay true to their date and finding creative ways to still wed!
With this in mind, in addition to the instructional flower arranging videos, I have added a bonus video on how to make a stunning hand-tied wedding bouquet. Personally, the act of gifting makes me feel hopeful and connected to my community and gifting serves as a gentle reminder that we can still look forward to big plans by sending small gestures of love. http://store.lewismillerdesign.com
