Tara, a Bloomerent bride, talked about her August 2017 elegant and romantic garden-themed wedding at Paramount Country Club in New City, NY. She worked with Bloomerent florist Wyld to create the timeless, elegant outdoor and indoor garden setting she desired.
We asked Tara to answer a few questions about her wedding and planning process to give insight to all future brides and grooms.
How did you find your florist?
Through Bloomerent! I searched through several different Bloomerent recommended florists, but after speaking with Lydia from Wyld, it was a very easy decision. She completely understood the style I was going for, and was such a sweetheart.
How did you hear about Bloomerent?
My good friend, Danit Zamir, is the co-founder and co-CEO, so I’ve known about Bloomerent from the very beginning and couldn’t wait to use them for my wedding!
Were you the first or second event?
How did working with Bloomerent ease the traditional experience of choosing a florist?
As many brides know, searching for wedding vendors can be overwhelming. There are so many different companies to choose from that it’s difficult to know where to begin and who to trust. What I love about Bloomerent is they’ve already done the vetting process for you. I was able to go off of their recommended list of trusted florists, and find the florist who was the best match for me.
Would you recommend Bloomerent to friends?
What was the inspiration/theme of your wedding?
Our wedding was garden inspired, and it was really important to me to keep everything romantic, elegant, and timeless.
How did your inspiration/theme influence your flowers?
With the goal of keeping things romantic, elegant, and timeless in mind, I opted for a neutral color palette for the flowers, with pops of greenery, and lots of candles. Our ceremony took place in an outdoor garden, but the reception was indoors. In order to keep the garden feeling alive, Lydia hung flowers and greenery from the chandeliers surrounding the dance floor. This was one of my favorite details!
How was your experience working with your florist?
Flawless! Lydia is one of my favorite vendors we worked with. Aside from being obviously talented, she was a complete pleasure to work with. I had lots of questions along the way, and was very particular about the details, and Lydia patiently answered every question and delivered on every detail.
What was the highlight of your wedding?
There were so many special moments that it’s hard to choose just one, but I would have to say the highlight of our wedding day was having our favorite people in the world in one room. We had family and friends travel from near and far, and the amount of love and joy that radiated in that room was inconceivable. I wish I could replay that feeling over and over again!
What made you decide to be the First Event?
The creative/design aspect is something I really enjoy, so I knew I wanted to be the first event to have that experience. I also had a very specific color scheme and vision in mind for my flowers, so it was important for me to be able to have that control.
