{ Lauren and Alex } May 11 2012

Lauren and Alex celebrated with family and friends out at Wolf Lakes - a lovely couple and beautiful weather.  I loved the color palette they chose of the greens, purples and fuchsias.  Very elegant.

Down the bridal isle we created hanging french wire cones filled with flowers.

On half of the tables we covered low cylinder vases with lace and filled with lush flower arrangements.  The bride made cute chalk board signs for each table number.

Another cute chalk board sign adorned the sweet heart table - it complimented our basil green table toppers really nicely.

The other half of the guest tables had various vintage bottles and jars filled with purple, green and fuchsia blooms.

{ Cristina and Zac } May 4 2012

Cristina's bouquet was pure joy for me to make.  I love putting together bridal bouquets and this one was no exception.  The elements were so interesting and the mustard yellow rannunculus and billy balls really popped alongside the dusty green echeverria's.

Her bridesmaids carried small bouquets full of white spider mums.

Nicole and Zach on May 12, 2012

Think old west meets sweet pinks and rhinestones.  This was the feeling I got at Zach and Nicole's wedding - held at the historic T Acres in Stevinson California.  As I wrapped Nicole's ultra feminine bouquet in lace and crystals a tall brown colt stood a few feet away, very curious.

Nicole provided us with a whole collection of rhinestone broaches - I sprinkled these throughout champagne, ivory and white roses.

For her sweet flower girl I hand made this princess wand.  These fabric rosettes were made from linen and finished with netting and rhinestones.

Large rustic lanterns were decorated with candles and soft flowers for the ceremony.

The bride lovingly made these rhinestone accented hanging mason jars which we filled with soft flowers.

Alex and Mark -- April 28, 2012

Alex could not be a sweeter and sincere woman - I loved working with her.  Alex carried a full soft bouquet of white peonies, white lisianthus, white stock and white rannuculus.


Her bridesmaids carried magenta bouquets with green lemon leaf.


On half of the tables we created low full arrangements of hydrangeas, roses and magenta carnations with soft greenery and black ribbons.

Kristi and Drew - April 28, 2012

I love looking back at these fun and unique flowers!  It was a pleasure working with Kristi and her mom on Kristi's wedding.  She and Drew celebrated at her families olive ranch in Mardera county under a huge white tent with little lights and touches of pink everywhere!  For her bouquet we used peonies, roses, echeverria succulents and spray roses.


The bridesmaids wore teal dresses and carried these soft bouquets in shades of pink.

At the People's Chapel we decorated the isle with iron candle stands and soft ivory tulling.

Party time at the family home...

Tall manzanita branches with hanging glass candle holders.

Lower arrangements were used on the other half of the guest tables - it was so fun to incorporate olives into these pieces.
