Elyse & Steven

I absolutely adored everything Elyse had envisioned for her wedding day, and I knew after meeting her we had to work together!!  One of the most important aspects of her wedding was the ceremony chuppah.  We worked together over the course of a year to perfect every detail of this beautiful piece!  I am so glad we did though, because there is something so special about a well thought out ceremony.  This is where the first precious moments of husband and wife will be taking place, and I think this is the most overlooked part of a wedding.  I was so glad Elyse and Steven really understood how sacred this space is, and were willing to put in the effort to make it just right.

The ballroom we created was a really magical transformation, and watching it come together gave me chills.  I had a huge team of talented designers with me, and we made sure no detail was overlooked.  Adding trailing jasmine vines, clustering candles, and making sure the cake was decorated just right…..these were just a few of the the items on our set up list that day!

Of course I loved the color palette we were working with, and Elyse really loved romantic antique garden roses, along with delicate greenery.  We mixed tall and short centerpieces, and used a variety of silver and mercury glass vessels to give the room a soft glow.

Elyse and Steven are just about to celebrate their 1 year anniversary, so I thought it was fitting to post their lovely wedding.  I can’t believe it took so long, but I think it was worth the wait!

Bre & Kyle

Bre and Kyle…where do I begin?  Over the last year Bre has become an amazing friend.  I love her to pieces.  She is a true gem, and a genuinely sweet, kind hearted soul.  You really don’t come across someone like her very often, so I snatched her as my friend as quickly as I could.

When Bre asked me to travel to her family home to create the flowers for her wedding day I was completely honored.  I have never done flowers outside of the SD, OC, LA area, so traveling to Sacramento was both scary and exciting!

Once I got to her home I was welcomed with open arms to the most beautiful property I have ever seen.  Her family brought me in like I was a part of the family, and it made me feel so at ease.  We had pancakes for breakfast, we cruised the neighbors property to look at some amazing antiques they have stored away,and it was overall just an amazing place to be.  I didn’t want to leave!

I wanted to make Bre’s bouquet extra special, so of course I ordered tons and tons of garden roses and peonies, and made it as large as my hands could hold.  Bre’s dad hand made each farm table, as well as her ceremony ladder arch– what a guy!   I used small vintage glass, milk glass, blue and pink glass, along with tarnished silver pieces from her moms amazing collection.  Each had unique combinations of peonies, garden roses, astilbe, waxflower, spirea (one of my faves), astrantia, cafe au lait dahlias, babies breath, and hypericum berries.

Honestly though, the flowers were just  a tiny part of the special day.  Bre and Kyle’s wedding ceremony was heartfelt and truly beautiful.  I cried like a baby.  Their love story and love for God is so unique and inspiring.  I walked away from their wedding brimming with fulfillment and joy.

Bre is also a wedding coordinator herself. Her attention to detail is impeccable, and she has several years of planning under her belt. You must check her out if you are looking for a wedding planner…… Joyful Weddings and Events.

Lauren & Taylor: Featured on Green Wedding Shoes

Lauren and Taylor were married at Condor’s Nest Ranch.  It’s one of those venues that I  feel so connected to.  The scenery and surroundings are gorgeous and the venue has so many quirky, fun little areas to run off to.  I’m sure Katie from Swoon by Katie had fun cruising around the property with this super fun couple.

Lauren has such great taste.  Working with her was a dream because she kept her vision simple, and she gave me pretty much full reign of the floral choices.  I was so happy with the results.  We used dahlias, succulents, garden roses, lisianthus, scabiosa pods, seeded eucalyptus, and dusty miller.  EEK SO PRETTY!

Vi & Andrew

Vi and Andrew were married at  Twin Oaks Garden Estate.  It’s one of my favorite venues because it’s so quaint and has such a gorgeous natural setting.  There are tons of cute details around the property- including cute vintage couches, tables, and little hutches everywhere. There are adorable rose bushes, hydrangea bushes, and eucalyptus trees everywhere.

We used juliet garden roses, cafe au lait dahlias, antique old dutch roses, white kale, lavender lisianthus, and seeded eucalyptus greens in all the arrangements and bouquets.

These lovely images were taken by the talented Mary at Floataway Studios.  She did such an amazing job capturing that quaint, simple feel, of this wedding. I love how ethereal everything looks!!

Caroline & Adam

I just loved the sweet colors and amazing spring florals at this wedding!  We used rancunulus, sweet peas, garden roses, peonies, hydrangea, rice flower, and beronium. Caroline was such a sweet, easy going bride!  She pretty much gave me full reign to make centerpieces and bouquets for her lovely wedding to Adam.  I was honored to be there, and to provide the flowers for this beautiful day!
Thank you to Betsy and Jeff at La Vida Creations for these gorgeous images!

Jane & Ryan

 

Jane and Ryan were married at the San Diego Children’s Museum, and each time I look at the images from their special day I get excited all over again!  Jane obviously has an amazing style – as you can tell from her BHLDN gown GAH!!!!  LOVE IT!! These images are also TO DIE FOR!  You must check out Rachel and Rico at Studio Castillero.  They are super duper talented, and extraordinarily good people!!

Her bouquet was one of my favorites– full of succulents, garden roses, ranunculus, seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, and spanish moss (EEK!).  It is my absolute favorite thing to use texture!  Using moss, succulents, and wood, combined with a few glamourous elements like garden roses, ranunculus, and feminine ribbon make the bouquets and centerpieces stand out.
This wedding was also featured on Ruffled, so head over there for some more amazing images, and great wedding inspiration.

Natalie & Brennan

Natalie was one of those brides you just wanna hug and be friends with!  I was so fortunate to work with her, and create the flowers for her special day.  We used a combination of garden roses, lavender scabiosa, cafe au late dahlias, geranium, dusty miller, & peach hypericum berries for the bouquets.  We also included pink astilbe and yellow butterfly bush in the centerpieces (two of my absolute faves).

Enjoy!!

Kathryn & Bryan

 

 

Kathryn & Brian were married at the Rancho Bernardo Inn last September.  They were such a sweet easy going couple.  The wedding really felt effortless.  I think the simple/ timeless elegance really made an impact on Kathryn’s family and friends….her mom even called me Monday morning to personally thank me for everything.  I was so touched.

I love the simple, rustic elements such as garden roses, seeded eucalyptus, wooden box centerpieces, and rustic candelabras.  I also loved how she chose to keep the ceremony classic and white, but added pops of red, burgundy and rust into the centerpieces.
