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!

Stevi & Kendrick

Stevi and Kendrick.  Holy wow, aren’t they both gorgeous?  Stevi is angelic, and Kendrick is so dapper.  Seriously rad human beings inside and out.  They offered me a cookie the first time we met and I was like WHAAAAT?  You guys are so cool.  I want to be your florist AND your friend!  I feel so grateful for clients like them….we value and respect each other.  It’s just THE BEST.

Take a gander at the insanely amazing images below by Lane Dittoe.  He’s so dang good.  He makes my flowers look INSANE.  I get goosebumps looking at his work.

Ok this wedding was just so fun and relaxed and rad.  I loved the flowers I loved the people.  Yep.  Thank you Stevi and Kendrick- for being you….and for picking me!!!

Featured on SMP: Erin & Andrew

Erin & Andrew were married at the same location as my last posted wedding….The Darlington House!!  This venue is just so charming – I understand why brides choose it!  I think our floral style fits so well at this venue too, so it’s just one of those matches that I think makes sense!!

When I met Erin, I knew immediately I wanted to work with her.  It was so obvious that she has a great sense of style.  When she said she loves greenery- I was even more excited.  Sometimes brides shy away from greens because they think they look “cheap” or too earthy.  My opinion is that natural foliages make the flowers stand out, while keeping an organic, natural vibe.

We used tons of silver dollar eucalyptus,myrtle, jasmine vines, ivory and coral garden roses, spray roses, and dahlias.

These images are so great…please go check out Schnack Studios!!

Kimberly & Matt

Kimberly and Matt were married at the Darlington House, and I must say, June is the BEST month of the year to get married.  It’s that magic month where spring and summer collide.  Of course we get peonies, but there is also a plethora of other amazing flowers available!  For this wedding we had a color palette of soft pinks, blushes, nudes, ivories and lovely accents of grey.  Peonies, garden roses, cafe au lait dahlias and scabiosa were just a few of the flowers in the bouquets and on the tables.

Enjoy these gorgeous images from Erin Saldana !!

Baby shower for Mabel

Over the weekend I attended a sweet friends baby shower.  It made me realize, and I had yet to post images from my own baby shower earlier this year!  I could not have asked for a more perfect day.  My sweet family, along with Bre and Danae from Joyful Weddings helped pull all the sweet details together.

The theme was Bows, Bundts, and Blooms….so perfect.  Each guest brought a bow for Mabel, we ate yummy bundt cakes, and of course, I brought some fun spring flowers to decorate.  Bre’s mom with Forever Vintage provided all the vintage touches…adorable dressers, vintage plates, and sweet lace linens.  I know the whole vintage thing has been around for awhile now, but I can’t seem to get enough of it.  And, Forever Vintage has the most amazing collection of items.  If you are in the Sacramento area- you have to check them out.

I am so blessed to have such amazing people in my life!!  Here are a few of the details that my friend Katie with Swoon by Katie captured.

Featured in San Diego Style Weddings Magazine & Style Unveiled!!!

So excited to share some images from a recent photo shoot!  It was a Great Gatsby inspired theme, so we decided to use clean white and green florals including white hydrangea, white peonies, green viburnum, heleborus, veronica, star of bethlehem, tulips, and hanging amaranthus.  It’s one of my favorite things to use fresh greens against simple white blooms.  The look is organic, clean, simple, and timeless!!

Leila from Brilliant Event Design came up with the overall design of the photo shoot which included layers of detail and beauty with soft, feminine overtones using sparkly mercury glass, crystal, rich gold and silver glassware, luxurious fabrics and of course lush florals.  A great husband and wife team-Amore Photography captured these lovely details.

There were also some amazing vintage rentals from Lauren Sharon. The venue is one of my favorites – Villa De Flores in Rancho Santa Fe.

These were just a few images, but there are SO MANY MORE!! Check out our 7 PAGE SPREAD in San Diego Style Magazine or head over to Style Unveiled!!!

Family of 4!!

I didn’t think I could love another human being as much as I love Cash, but when Mabel came into the world,  it was like another chamber of my heart opened and I was instantly in love.  I am so incredibly blessed.

There aren’t really words to express how much these images fill my heart with joy.  I cannot thank Chelsea Anne Photography enough for taking time to capture my family so beautifully.

Here’s our little family of 4……

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.

These images were taken by the amazing Lane Dittoe.  He is beyond words talented.  Don’t even get me started.

Jenny & Chris: Featured on Junebug Weddings

Jenny and Chris were married at Maravilla Gardens in Camarillo.  It is such a beautiful, serene place, I fell in love with it the moment we stepped foot on the property.  Jenny looked absolutely stunning.  I just love seeing the bride so glamorous, happy, and glowing on her special day.  Jenny was the epitome of how a bride should look, feel and act on her wedding day.  It was so obvious that she was thrilled to be marrying Chris, and their love emanated that day.

These beautiful images were taken by Christine Bentley and were also featured on Junebug Weddings.  Head on over there to check out more of images, as well as tons of great inspiration!

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!
