In honor of their 1 year wedding anniversary, I wanted to share V + T’s beautiful modern wedding! Where do I even begin with these two? Vanessa and I have known each other since she moved down to San Diego to help plant a church that my family and I attended. I’m so drawn to her ambitious go-getter focus driven personality, all the while serving people around her wholeheartedly and with a big ol smile. These two both share a heart to serve God and His people while having so much fun! I’m just so proud of Vanessa for also chasing her dreams and working so hard to becoming a nurse. She was studying for her nursing exams while planning her wedding!
So here we go…a peak into their perfect day!
What an honor to be a fellow vendor along side my dear friend Alyssa who was the brilliant photographer for this day! Alyssa captured this day so perfectly and her photography is just breathtaking. Alyssa’s ability to make a couple feel so comfortable and at ease is evident as she captures them at their natural best.
When designing and planning for Vanessa and Tyler’s wedding, our mood board comprised of mostly neutral earth tones such as terra-cotta, rust, soft blushes and cream and touches of mauve and grey. We included textured images of velvet, silk and wet paint and concrete to show that we wanted the wedding vibe to feel modern and eclectic while transcending moments of whimsy and romance. I added some dried florals to add texture and spray painted some dried palms to give it that modern pop but pairing it all with romantic florals such as my all time favorite quicksand roses, brown mauve fancy carnations, caffe latte roses, dahlias, majolica spray roses and the ever show stopping and pricey toffee rose that was EVERYTHING to my floral vision board.
I can’t thank Vanessa enough for giving me so much creative freedom with this window installation at BLDG 177. It’s amazing what will happen when a bride trusts her floral designer. Magic happens. One of my favorite things about working at BLDG 177 is that its a blank slate. The opportunities to create fun installations are endless and my creativity can go wild here. We knew that the big window was going to be a backdrop and wanted to create something that we can also repurpose for the sweetheart area which was at a different location. My vision was to create something wild and organic in a very clean and tame space. Almost to create an oxymoron in a space so to speak.
Of course behind every amazing floral designer, is her team and at this wedding, I was 35 weeks pregnant with my third child and having the support of my dear friend Leah (and fellow flower mama) from Bespoke Occasions Floral Designs meant the world to me. Grateful for my community of floral friends.
I love how we repurposed the ceremony pieces for the sweetheart table. Thus, saving the couple a ton of money while still having such a lush sweetheart set up!
The reception was clean and simple but not lacking of anything. Everything was timeless yet trendy!
Thank you again Vanessa and Tyler for allowing me be a part of your epic day. You guys are amazing! I wish years and years of happiness friends!
