Daniela & Ben - The Liberty House

Daniela and Ben Scandinavian Christmas Wedding at The Liberty House  - December 17, 2011.
Daniela and Ben wanted a Scandinavian Christmas inspired wedding - RPL designed a gorgeous bouquet and tablescapes to bring their vision to life.
Daniela carried a bouquet of all white flowers including white ranunculus, white stephanotis, white stock, white hypericum berries, and the much sought after anemones with black centers.

Her bridesmaids carried bouquets of white ranunculus, white hypericum berries, white anemones with black centers, and variegated pittosporum.

Thank you to Carey MacArthur for the amazing pictures of Daniela and Ben and the bouquets.

The reception, held at the Liberty House, Jersey City had strings of white lights as if you were visiting the Scandinavian Christmas marketplace.

Beautiful tablescapes were created by first lining the tables with evergreens and pine.  Then six arrangements were placed throughout the table incorporating silver mercury vases and candles.

A special placecard was decorated with Daniela’s stars, typical Scandinavian Christmas d├ęcor. The table was covered in burlap linen and a magnolia leaf garland.
The three chandeliers in the ballroom were draped with evergreens and white lights.
Thank you to Adam Alexander for the amazing pictures of The Liberty House ballroom.    ( )

A whimsical arrangement capturing the fun, magic and drama of Broadway.
A gold pedestal, mercury vase filled with Ocean Song and Vendella roses, burgundy cymbidium orchids, purple dendrobium orchids, purple lisianthus, white astilbe, and white hydrangeas, accented with peacock feathers and a brass horn. In the center sits our main character, a gold bird with luxurious black feathers!

RPL Kicks off 2012 at Bridgewaters - South Street Seaport New York

Oranges, tangerines, apples, cymbidium orchids, and tulips jump start this event
at Bridgewaters - South Street Seaport.
 Phenomenal views with tall ships of the New York Harbor in the background and the Brooklyn Bridge right outside the window - what a fabulous venue to have a party!
 Up on the rooftop to get a view of South Street Seaport below!
 Cocktail was masquerade themed  - gorgeous containers filled with lime green flowers, green tea roses and tangerine orange (Pantone's color pick of the year!) tulips and spray roses accented with gold masks with feathers and rhinestones.

Centerpieces were breakaways - the main center had succulents, hydrangeas, orange cymbidium orchids seeded eucalyptus and green olives.
Surrounding the center are vases of clementines, limes and orchids.
The third breakway was green kale. This is a great combo for this food industry corporate party and all the elements made unique centerpieces for any event.
A big shout out to Erin for choosing Rose Petals and Lace for this event. Check out 
Bridgewaters at South Street Seaport for any event!

Beach Weddings I- Lorraine and Dave, McLoones Pierhouse, Long Branch

Beach Weddings - RPL does the Jersey Shore  – Part 1  

Before 2012 starts rocking let’s take a look back at some of the amazing RPL weddings we designed in 2011.  Since it’s literally freezing outside, we’d like to start with some warm weather beauties - beach weddings designed by RPL. We are very fortunate to have such a vast array of venues in NJ but some of our favorite venues are at the Jersey shore. Who needs destination weddings when we have some of the most beautiful beaches in the country right in our own backyard and what better place to have a wedding than the Jersey Shore!

For the next few days we’ll post a few weddings from different “beach” venues.
First up is Lorraine and Dave’s wedding at McLoone’s Pierhouse in Long Branch.
What a beautiful bride! Lorraine looks stunning.
Lorraine carried a bouquet of green cymbidium orchids, ivory roses and calla lilies, accented with loops of bear grass.
Lorraine and Dave’s ceremony was held right on the beach under a natural wood arbor draped with beachy colored chiffon. The chairs down the aisle were also wrapped with matching chiffon.

Hawaii - No guess again--JERSEY SHORE
Beach  tablescapes were created using luscious green cymbidium orchids submerged in glass vases surrounded by nets, sea glass, and sea shells.
The sweetheart table was draped with netting and decorated with starfish and sea moss.

Thanks to Studio Photography for all the professional pictures (marked Studio, others are our own very non-professional pictures). Please visit  to view more incredible pictures of Lorraine and Dave’s wedding at McLoone’s Pier House.

Thank you Lorraine & Dave, it was our pleasure to work with you!
