Confetti roses, gloriosa lilies, dahlias, marigold, tree ivy, uluhe fern, and blue veronica make this jewel-toned bouquet from Monica Chimes Floral in West Harrison a beautiful choice for a fall or winter wedding. Manfred Hirz of Patisserie Salzburg of Rye created this stunning four-tier cake with edible sugar flowers to coordinate.
Jennifer Spaziante of Arcadia Floral Company in Mamaroneck used ruffled green and white ornamental cabbage, lady-slipper orchids, and veronica, along with accents of rosemary, thyme, sweet basil, scented geranium leaves, jasmine, and fresh lavender, finishing the bouquet with an organic cotton tie embellished with buttons. Tracy Kamperdyk Assue, from White Plains-based City Limits, topped the four-tier banded cake with a floral layer and an artichoke.
