As we work to rebrand Orly Khon’s two companies, Orly Khon Floral Boutique and Tangerine Creations, we take a look back to the reason we have grown so much! In the blog series “Rebrand: A look back…” we share with you the memorable moments of the relationships we have built over the last decade.
To say that Brian and Maria Phillips of Brian Phillips Photography are amazing photographers/friends to us is an understatement. Orly met Maria and Brian around 2009 at a wedding at the Seaport Hotel. Orly was talking Spanish and Maria overheard her. They started chatting in Spanish together and the rest was history.
We have worked with Brian and Maria on countless events, weddings, bar mitzvahs, photo shoots. Every photographer has a style of their own, but what makes Brian Phillips Photography so special is their timeless style. Their work is so versatile, it’s no surprise that they are one of the most preferred Boston wedding photographers. You’ll find the work of Brian Phillips Photography on the Orly Khon Floral Boutique website and in the images below in which we both worked together.
Brian and Maria were actually the first photographers I had met when I started working with Orly five years ago. They were the photographers for the a photo shoot that we were designing with SD Events at the old Upstairs on the Square location in Cambridge. I remember seeing Brian on the set with his wife Maria and loving how well they worked together. Within the next month, we participated in another photo shoot for Grace Ormande at the ICA — Brian Phillips Photography was on the set again. It was then when I began to see how popular and special Brian Phillips Photography was.
It is always such a sense of comfort when we show up to a wedding or venue and know that they were hired as the photographer. Events, especially weddings, can be stressful, and it always feels so good to know vendors when arriving to the venues, especially Maria and Brian. We are SO grateful to have met Brian and Maria, as photographers and especially friends. Mwa!
As we work to rebrand Orly Khon’s two companies, Orly Khon Floral Boutique and Tangerine Creations, we take a look back to the reason we have grown so much — lots of client love! In the blog series “Rebrand: A look back…” we share with you the memorable moments of our client’s lives that included us over the last decade.
Below, the super sweet and fun Leigh-Anne shares her special experience of working with us in 2013. We worked with Leigh-Anne and Andre on the flowers for their wedding at the Wellesley College Club on August 24, 2013. We LOVED being a part of their special day and working with the colors and flowers that fit their style. Our favorite part about working with these two — Andre ordered the exact flowers of Leigh-Anne’s bridal bouquet for her birthday because he knew how much she loved her flowers. We wish them lots of love and happiness in their second year of marriage.
“Our experience working with [the Orly Khon Floral team] was seamless and incredibly enjoyable — they were sweet and helpful and the finished product was gorgeous! I cannot tell you how many compliments my bouquet alone received, it was the star of the show! I still keep a photo of it as my wallpaper on my computer at work, just so I can remember how beautiful it was. And the rest of the flowers were just as amazing — the boutonnieres, the centerpieces, the bouquets for the bridesmaids and the mothers — all were just perfect and so fresh too.”

Up until now, we have kept our boutique and studio somewhat separate. Because we have two different websites — one for Weddings and Events, Tangerine Creations, and other for our boutique inside Restoration Hardware, the Orly Khon Floral Boutique — we admit, it hasn’t been the most effective way for our customers to know about 100% of our services.
And THAT is what we are working on!
With this new change, every time you go to our website, you’ll see a section for floral design for weddings and events. You’ll also see a section for our boutique. With that being said, you will also see the world that is our boutique with photos much like this…
Many items you will see at our boutique are in neutral colors — but we are not limited to neutrals. We work a lot with succulents, orchids, silk flowers, items that will l a s t in your home or office.
We are excited to make this new connection with you and hope that you will visit our boutique sometime soon! Stay tuned for our new website…coming soon!
Meet the awesome Jessica Sutton, the owner behind JSGD. We have worked with Jessica since 2011, first on the redesign of Tangerine Creation‘s website and scattered projects here and there. Jessica designed an entirely new website for the Orly Khon Floral Boutique in Restoration Hardware this past year.
As our company rebrands, Jessica is working on connecting both the Tangerine Creations and OKFB websites to make one clean, fresh site that showcases all of our services. We couldn’t be more excited for this transition and we can’t wait to see our a fresh website that includes both floral design for events and the boutique! Stay tuned!

So you have all your ducks in a row for your wedding. The last dress fitting, guest seating, and gifts for your bridesmaids. Check, check, and check.
One thing you definitely don’t want to leave as an after thought are your nails. Every girl loves the special photo her photographer takes of her and her bridal bouquet. Look at our Pinterest page to see what brides are doing with their nails to compliment their dresses and wedding flower bouquets.

We love the photos of Marina and Alex’s wedding from Summer Street Photography. This summery outdoor wedding was full of color, with purple, orange, coral, yellow and even grey and white in some areas. Oh and lemons. Lots of lemon slices for the centerpieces. We worked with Renee Sabo and Tasha Bracken from SD Events with Marina and Alex, who were living in Australia during the planning of their wedding. Everything came together so beautifully at the Pierce House in Lincoln, MA.
Floral design is most fun when no two pieces are to be the same. Marina’s love for lush and colorful let us design each centerpiece to be unique, combining bright colors in dahlias, ranunculus, marigolds, gomphrena, succulents, and more.
Orly Khon loves geometric shapes. And color. She becomes inspired by lines and shapes everyday that give life to her beautiful creations. We were pinning away this morning on Pinterest and came across a full California wedding that uses geometric shapes to the max. Look to these photos for a little wedding floral design ideas for your special day.
I love the stacking of blocks for the centerpieces. The little succulent wedding favors with guest name are so adorable. Call us at 617-202-0299 to schedule a consultation to start the conversation on your wedding flowers.

Orly designed the flowers for Jill and John’s wedding at the State Room. The fiery oranges and deep purples made a beautiful color palette to design the flowers, especially for a fall wedding.
We worked with amazing vendors like the State Room, Unique Weddings by Alexis, Rentals Unlimited, Peterson Party Center, I Dream of Jeanne Cakes. We love that Bliss Celebrations featured one of our weddings, and we have a feeling that we are going to keep seeing this wedding pop up again here and there.
