Oscar Worthy Weddings

In the aftermath of the Oscars, we often find ourselves daydreaming in a haze of all things glamorous.  Let’s take the opportunity to celebrate this Wedding Wednesday by observing the inspirations of red carpet worthy style.  It’s no secret that a wedding is a production, but some performances are more noteworthy than others.  From shabby to chic, and silver screen sirens to first ladies, celebrities have tied the not in all shapes and forms over the years.  What will you strut down the aisle when you go bridal?  Whatever your wedding style is, have a look at some of these epic romances that resulted in matrimony..

In a New York Minute

It’s been an epic week here at L’Atelier Rouge, with an event every day and sometimes even two.  Tapping into our inner worker bees, we buzzed around a multitude of flowers in every arrangement here at the studio, day in and day out.  Black Magic Roses, Ocean Song Roses, Garden Roses, Super Green Roses, Vanda Orchids, Hanging Aspidistra, Hydrangeas, Phalaenopsis Orchids, Paeonias, Pin Cushions, Magnolia branches, decorative organic fruit, you name it, it’s here.  We are almost wall to wall with various rose breeds, and as you can imagine it smells divine.


From a Gala for the French Institute Alliance Francaise, to a two-day conference at the Mandarin Hotel, the week came roaring in like a lion.  It continued to go out that way too, because next on the books were a couple of extravagant dinner receptions at 583 Park Ave.  Then we conducted a gold leafing demonstration followed by an interview, and we made our debut in Brides Magazine, but that was only the beginning..  This weekend we conquer what will be one of our most lavish weddings thus far, at the Pierre Hotel.  Rome wasn’t built in a day, but by the end of the week, we feel like the soldiers responsible.  For our next trick… No sleep til’ the Pierre Hotel!  It’s safe to say this week has gone by like a New York minute.  Cheers darlings
