October 23, 2010 - Alison and Brendan's Wedding

"A Mid Summer's Night Dream" -- soft creaming hydrangeas, moss, fragrant lilies -- candle light.

Allison carried a creamy bouquet with hydrangeas, dahlias, and lisianthus ringed with scented geranium leaves.

Her attendants wore the most gorgeous moss dresses and carried cream hydrangeas with green hypericum berries and pink lisianthus.

Upon arrival, guests were greeted with a full lily arrangement at the guest book table.

For the ceremony, we created moss balls wrapped in curly willow branches that hung down the isle.

Over in the reception area, a lovely chalkboard outlined the dinner menu for the guests.

The guest tables had three different centerpiece designs. One with manzanita branches, moss balls, hanging orchids with hanging crystals.

The second had our gold urn filled with soft flowers and brown kiwi vines.

The final design was a collection of square vases with candles along with hydrangeas, lilies, dahlias, and moss.

The head table was also decorated with the square vase and flower design.

October 23, 2010 - Amber and Michael's Wedding

In true autumn fashion, Amber and Michael chose a palette of chocolate brown and dark red with touches of dark orange. Amber carried a lush full bouquet of all "Black Magic" roses.

Her attendant's carried "Black Magic" roses, heanodis roses, and flame calla lilies with coffee hypericum berries.

Down the isle, we hung twig boxes full of flowers. These were later carried and used as centerpieces on the guest tables.

Additional twig boxes were made using all dark red roses. All of the centerpieces sat on top of our brown organza overlays.

Silk pomander balls were also made.

October 23, 2010 - Nicole's Baby Shower

Congratulations to Nicole and Ian as they await the arrival of their first child. Nicole's sister, Trisha, hosted the baby shower at her home.

The theme was Moroccan and the flowers and linens we provided were bright and romantic.

Thanks for letting us be a part of these special family events!

October 22, 2010 - Erica and Derrick's Wedding

This lucky couple celebrated with family and friends in Pismo Beach. My sister-in-law, Amy L. Horn, took some gorgeous professional photos for me because we were unable to make the trip.

Erica's bouquet contained white hydrangeas, navy blude delphen, white phalenopisis orchids, and white roses.

Erica's attendants wore midnight blue and carried these crisp nosegay bouquets made with green cymbidium orchids, green hypericum berries, and white roses.

October 17, 2010 - Emilie and Daniel's Wedding

Emilie and her family did a fabulous job creating these amazing centerpieces with gold painted manzanita and potted with phalaenopsis orchids. I only wished that I had snapped a photo!

Emily carried a fresh and modern bouquet with cream hydrangeas, white roses, white lisianthus, rhinestone studded stephanotis, white and light pink cymbidium orchids with hanging white phalenopsis orchids.

Her bridesmaids carried petite bouquets with peach "Loli-Pop" roses, champagne spray roses, and light pink spray roses.

October 16, 2010 - Stephanie and Jarrod's Wedding

Stephanie had a very clear vision of how she wanted their wedding to look. I was honored to help bring that vision to life through our flowers, linens, and decor. Stephanie used the peacock and it's colorful feathers as her inspiration.

Stephanie carried a traditional white and cream bouquet. 

Her bridesmaids carried bouquets with dark purples and creams with dark teal ribbons.

Some of the boutonnieres consisted of orchids and peacock feathers. 

Submerged calla lilies in a tall vase decorated the guest book table.

For the ceremony, we hung small lanterns with tea lights from shepherd hooks that were decorated with orchids and colorful ribbons.

A large arrangement was made for the unity table.

Over in the reception area, we used our white chair covers with two different colored sashes, navy and purple, to decorate the chairs. 

On the tables, we created two centerpieces. The first sat on top of our square mirrors in a rectangle vase with green ti leaves, purple stock, magenta amaranthus, and green hypericum berries with peacock feathers.

The second centerpiece sat on top of our round mirrors and had submerged magenta dendrobium orchids with LED lights that lit up the cylinders in the evening. In the center of the three cylinders were peacock feathers. 

Around the perimeter of the pavilion, we hung our dark green and peacock feather wreaths from the lights.

A final arrangement for the bar area.
