Lauren & Sean

This wedding took place at Leo Carrillo Ranch, in Carlsbad. I love this quaint farm style location! The peacocks are always just hanging around, and I enjoy their company when we set up. Lauren and Sean were one of the sweetest, easy going couples I have ever worked with. Lauren put all her trust in me, and let me do my thing. I just adore her for that.

I got to use some of my fave flowers here: hyacinth, veronica, ranunculus, juliet garden roses, and chamomile daisies.

The stunning images below were taken by the beautiful and oh so talented Jill Thomas.

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!!

The Crosby

The ladies at Two Rings and a Dress did an amazing job with these images!!

This photoshoot was featured in Ceremony Magazine, and we were so honored to be in this lovely mag for the last several years!!  The Crosby is an absolutely beautiful location for a wedding.  It’s so private, and the grounds are lush, green, and beyond stunning.

Don’t you just love the juxtaposition of the succulents, wood boxes with the feminine lace and blush tones?  It’s my fave. We used heleborus, cafe au latte dahlias, snowberries, bay leaves, and roses.

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.

Sara & Todd

Sara and Todd were married at the Park Hyatt in Carlsbad.  I must say I love doing weddings at this hotel.  It has a gorgeous ballroom and ceremony courtyard.  An extra bonus is that it’s right down the street from us!

I love the chuppah we created for the ceremony.  To me, the place where the bride and groom will say their vows is sacred, and it really needs to be a special spot for this ritual.  Plus, the pictures look so nice with a stunning backdrop.

We used tons and tons of purple and burgundy dahlias, along with phalaenopsis orchids and hydrangea.  The orchids really give it the elegance and drama that a ballroom needs.  The stemmed mercury glass candles are that finishing touch that create that ambiance to make the flowers stand out.

Jaymi & Will

Aside

One of my favorite weddings ever!!!  Jaymi and Will were such an adorable couple, and SO IN LOVE!!!!  They were married at The Viceroy in Palm Springs.  We used hot pink and coral charm peonies, pink piano, toulouse lautrec & baroness garden roses, pink dahlias, and peach ranunculus to create the bouquets.  The centerpieces were created with a variety of misc. seasonal blooms including billy balls, yaro, china mums, daisies, chamomile, and gerber daisies.

These beautiful images were taken by my dear friend Katie Scott from Swoon by Katie.  The coordination of this gorgeous event was done by the lovely and talented Carter and Cook Event Co.  Heather and Ashlyn are absolutely amazing!!

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!!
