Lilac & Honey

Flower garden hues of lilac and honey filled this modern, chic Boston hotel ballroom for a dreamy wedding.

Growing up, both Hillary and Zak’s parents were avid gardeners and took much pride in their designs. Hillary and Zak had visions of creating an indoor garden oasis for their ceremony and reception and Lo McShay of Lo Lo Event Design partnered with Poppy Floral Design to bring this vision to life. Meghan Perlow of Poppy Floral Design created a breathtaking floral Chuppah comprised of over 400 roses in creamy purple and honey hues. As a nod to Zak’s Moroccan heritage, paper lanterns with laser-cut Moroccan motifs were hung outside on the terrace where the cocktails were being served. The floral extravagance continued in the ballroom where terracotta pots overflowing with flowers and greens suspended from the ceiling hung over long mirrored tables. At the smaller tables, rose domes in three heights and shades added to the elegance of the room.

Vendor Spotlight On: Poppy Floral

This week’s Vendor Spotlight is on Poppy Floral! Stay tuned for Wednesday’s blog post featuring her stunning work.

1. How did your business come to be? 

Poppy Floral came from my passion for design and being able to work with my hands. After spending several years in Interior Architecture, a good friend of mine asked if I could do her wedding flowers as a favor. She was on a budget, and trusted my ability to bring her vision together seamlessly. After I made my very first bouquet for her, I was hooked! Poppy Floral was born, and I was eventually able to take the business full time and make floral dreams come true all year!

2. What are the services you offer?

Our services really vary by client. Some brides only need a few bouquets that they can pick-up at our studio located directly on site at the New England Flower Exchange, while others need our full service design staff to set-up large installations of flowers for a glamorous wedding decked out in florals! We create each package to be totally custom, and even offer DIY centerpiece kits that offer our high-end look on a budget.

3. Where are you located and how far will you travel to provide your service?

We’re located directly on site at the New England Flower Exchange in Chelsea. We love being able to walk right out our studio door and onto the market floor, giving us access to best and most beautiful flowers from around the world. We’re happy to travel all throughout New England to make floral magic. (Minimums do apply for weddings farther outside the Boston metro area).

4. How far in advance do you recommend clients to book?   

For popular dates such as May through June, and August through October, we recommend couples book 12 months in advance, but we’re typically able to accommodate wedding requests 6-9 months out as well.

5. What is one piece of advice you always give to brides?

For flowers, my best piece of advice for brides is to give your florist a general color palette and style you like (even if it’s a general word, like ‘romantic’, ‘classic’, or ‘rustic’) and let them create something truly unique and seasonal. Flowers can change not only be season, but sometimes even week to week! Being flexible and open to let your florist design to what’s the best in season will give you a better value, and a better final product for the big day.
