A posh, polished version of every little girl’s childhood wedding fantasy—that’s what we set out to achieve with Meredith Waga-Perez, floral and event designer and owner of NYC’s Belle Fleur. A Manhattan loft with floor-to-ceiling windows, aptly named The Glasshouses, provided the perfect canvas for our concept: playing the reflective qualities of different transparent surfaces—crystal, rhinestones, even ice—against one another for a glittering gala. The entry table displays three very cool (literally!) vases, hand-carved by Okamoto Studio Ice Sculpture, holding harmony calla lilies, Phalaenopsis orchids, peonies and garden roses.

Flowers, Ariella Chezar. A seashell garland. The Landing, a boutique hotel on scenic Harbour Island, Bahamas, sparked some sophisticated tropical touches for this island celebration. Escort cards from The Printery rest atop porcelain flowers, beside hyacinth-filled mercury-glass votives.
