Tabitha & Peter’s Wedding at Taste
Tabitha and Peter were married on a beautiful April day! The Ceremony took place at the Cathedral of All Saints and the reception at Taste in Downtown Albany. We love the garden style bouquets and centerpieces. Congratulations to the bride and groom!
We just absolutely love this vibrant and colorful spring bridal bouquet. This stunning garden style bouquet includes hydrangea, roses and spray roses, pink peonies, lavender and white lisianthus, lavender sweat pea, with touches of muscari and purple anemones.
The flower girl wore a garden style head wreath of English ivy and roses, and held a smaller version of the brides bouquet.
The bride and her bridesmaids are pictured at the Morgan State House in Albany. The ceremony took place at the Cathedral of All Saints in Albany.
The centerpieces for the reception, which were also designed in a garden style to coordinate with the bridal flowers, consisted of antique hydrangea with roses, peony, sweet pea, anemones and English ivy.
The centerpieces sat atop light pink cake plate to coordinate with the pink peonies. These light pink cake plates are also a rental item in varying sizes from Fleurtacious Designs.
The cocktail hour overlooked the city of Albany’s skyline. The linens were cinched with matching satin ribbon, with petite vases of daffodils and muscari.
The happy couple ends their evening overlooking the Albany skyline and eating cake.

Amanda & Kevin’s Wedding at Mallozzi’s
What made you choose Fleurtacious as your wedding florist?
Working with Kris Ann was amazing! I knew from the beginning I wanted her to do the flowers for our wedding. I would see her work on JP’s blog
and I always love everything she does and after meeting with her for the first time I knew she had to be our florist.
How did Kris Ann make your ideas come to life?
I came to her having an idea of what look and color scheme I wanted to go for. I was able to get a lot of my ideas from looking at all her previous weddings she had done and listening to all her suggestions. She was so helpful with choosing which vases and what type of flowers to use and what flowers would look good together. She was able to take those ideas and what seemed like hundreds of pictures and bring them together to create what I wanted. She did not let me forget one detail which I loved!
Was the end result what you expected?
I was blown away with the job she did. I loved everything about each and every arrangement! It all looked amazing from the church flowers, bouquets, centerpieces, cocktail tables, escort table, head table, cake flowers I loved it all!! It took my breath away and was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Even the way she arranged the candles on each table looked perfect. It was gorgeous and I wish we could do it all over again.
Guest Entry by Laura: The “Hurricane Bride!”
Our last blog entry was a feature on Laura and Edward’s wedding photographed by Joe Elario Photography. Their wedding has been such a hit that we wanted to reach out to Laura to get her perspective on her big day. It’s amazing how well things went despite the weather. Rain, snow, or hurricane, your Fleurtacious Designs flowers will be delivered to you! :)
Since my (now) husband and I live in New York City, we knew that planning our wedding upstate would require us to have a lot of trust in our wedding vendors since most planning would have to be done remotely. I knew that Kris Ann and her team at Fleurtacious Designs would provide amazingly beautiful flowers, but I never could have guessed how important it was for me to have complete faith in everyone involved during our wedding day. My husband and I were married on 8.28.11 – the day Irene drenched and blew her way through the northeast.
The days leading up to our wedding day were stressful, to say the least. Every time I checked the weather online, it seemed like the predicted forecast was getting worse. Of course, I kept fielding the questions/comments no bride wants to have to answer in the days leading up to her wedding: “are you still going to have the wedding?”, “can’t you just reschedule?”, “I bet a lot of people won’t be able to make it”, “have you checked to see if everywhere has generators?”. Despite many people acting as if the world was surely going to end, Kris Ann and crew were completely prepared and proactive to make sure that our wedding day went as smoothly as possible.
I returned to the Glen Sanders Inn at midnight the night before the wedding to find Kris Ann in the lobby hauling in box after box of centerpiece bowls, flower stands, etc. into the ball room. The following day, the incredible flowers arrived on time – impressive since many roads were closed. Armed with Hunter wellies and a smile, Kris Ann brought the wedding bouquets to the bridal suite. The flowers were stunning and completely exceeded my expectations. Kris Ann and crew not only were on-hand to set-up in the morning, but were also there throughout the day to make sure flowers were brought from the ceremony at Union’s Memorial Chapel back to the reception at the Glen Sanders.
The bouquets, centerpieces and other decorative flowers provided by Fleurtacious Designs were perfect. I couldn’t have hoped for a more reliable or talented team to make our wedding day beautifully memorable.
Laura and Edward’s Glen Sanders Mansion Wedding
Laura and Edward got married at Union Chapel on the day Hurricane Irene hit! As you can tell from the photos, the bad weather couldn’t stop this couple from having an amazing time. Their reception was held at Glen Sanders Mansion. The pretty yellow color of many of the flowers brightened up this gloomy day.
Such a classy look of the soft butter yellow & gray…. hydrangea, garden roses,gray brunia & dusty miller.
