Corals and Pinks for an Indian Groom and Bride

Our marathon floral job has come to a close. This is the last hurrah. The amaryllis, coral charm peonies and astilbe from Holland have held up and the tables are ready for the last night’s party. Bridget’s fabricated pagoda-shaped structures have been draped with hundreds of feet of plumosa fern garlands, and the candelabrum have been festooned in a delicate, local, coral-colored bloom. A beautiful finale for a beautiful couple. “Kudos,” to Bridget and the Designers’ Co-op, and thank you for bringing me along on your Indian Adventure. It will live with me forever.

The Indian florists who wove them did so with superhuman dexterity and speed.IMG_6585IMG_6601IMG_6603 IMG_6610IMG_6738IMG_6741IMG_6742IMG_6746IMG_6748IMG_6749Photography Beth Horta.

  1. Hello Beth! I remember you talking about India while I was taking courses at FSNY. I think Indian wedding is one of the most beauful parts of Hindu culture and you’ve definitely witnessed it!
