FASH­ION­ABLE FALL FETE

ART HIS­TORY

Martha Stewart Weddings - - ONE AUTUMN EVENING -

Floral de­signer Sarah Ry­ha­nen from Saipua pitched the idea of a dra­matic and unique bou­quet, and in­cluded Ro­maine Brooks’s Femme avec des fleurs oil paint­ing (circa 1912) on the mood board. The sub­ject, wear­ing noth­ing but a drape of black fab­ric on her back, is pic­tured hold­ing a cas­cade of as­sorted flow­ers. And so the idea for Glara’s bou­quet was hatched. “An an­cient nude lady—who knew?” says the bride.

We got ready to­gether, not in dif­fer­ent rooms, be­cause we didn’t see the value of separat­ing our­selves ar­ti­fi­cially when our ap­proach to the rest of life is one of part­ner­ship. —MATTHEW, ON SHAR­ING A SUITE FOR PREWED­DING PREP
