Ashley and Bobby: Circle Oak Ranch

weddings

When I first met Ashley and her mother, Wendy, I wanted to be a part of their family! I love their trust and mother-daughter bond, that even when Ashley had to move across the country in the middle of wedding planning when her soon to be husband was re-stationed for the military, her sweet mother took over and helped with the rest of the wedding details. It was truly so special to work with them both.

Ok…let me tell you about my love for orange mock. I feel like you never know exactly when it’s going to come back in season in the early summer time but when it does, it’s gone before you know it. It’s such a beautiful floral foliage that has such a short season so you better believe it that when it’s here, I’m using it as much as I can. Ashley’s bridal bouquet’s main ingredients were the orange mock and the white alabaster garden rose paired with the fruiting blueberry foliage–another amazing season greens with actual premature fruiting blueberries and of course white peonies (another bridal favorite that has such a short season)!!

Monique and Corey’s Modern Downtown Central Library Wedding

weddings

It’s been a minute since I’ve shared my recent work.  It’s been such a busy 2018 so far and I can’t believe it’s already half way over! I am so happy to share Corey and Monique’s wedding that was held in the heart of downtown at the Central Library.  What I love about this space is all the modern and clean lines. We played off the building structure and masculine texture to soften it with the florals.

Keri and Scott’s Rustic Boho Wedding

Guys, where do I even begin with this couple? I’ve never been more obsessed and in love than with these two. They have an incredible love story that is filled with heart ache, redemption, faith, pure friendship and love.  I wish I could share the details of their journey but it’s not my story to tell but to tell only of their first day of their forever together in these pictures.

Francine and Rey’s Modern Clean Minimalist Wedding at the Brick, Liberty Station

weddings

Are you guys ready for this? Francine and Rey’s romantic modern minimalistic wedding is nothing short of details, lots of planning and clean lines. Francine, who has impeccable taste and style planned out every incredible detail of this wedding. When it comes to florals to weddings, I’m usually “go big or go home” but in this case, less was definitely more!

The color palette of this wedding was textured greens such a varies eucalyptus types and clean crisp white blooms such as ranunculus, creamy majolicas, veronicas, hellebores and more!

Rey and his son getting ready together just tugged at my heart. They looked so dapper and handsome! And I can’t get over that perfect red lip for Francine!

Katie and Eric’s Blushing Neutral Wedding at Quail Ranch, Simi Valley

weddings

Katie and Eric’s wedding was definitely one for the books.  Every little detail was planned to the T and the vendors that were apart of this wedding were out of this world! It’s amazing when you work with insanely talented creatives who know their trade well and  hustle and give generously through their talents, how beyond amazing the event comes together. From Katie’s stunning blushing bridal dress from designer Haley Paige to Eric’s Gucci dress shoes, this wedding was nothing short of class.

The color palette for this wedding was to air on the side of lots of neutrals with pops of blush because we really wanted Katie’s amazing designer blush gown to stand out!

My favorite part of her bridal bouquet are the various garden roses that I used from a San Diego local rose farm called Ella Rose.

Ben and Rebecca’s Botanical Garden Wedding

weddings

Hi friends! I promise I’m alive! It’s been a busy wedding season and I’ve been enjoying immersing myself in dreamy florals.  And boy am I excited to share this wedding with you. Ben and Rebecca are sweet friends of mine (yes, I know I know…all my friends are so good looking!) and I was honored that they asked me to do the florals for their special day! When Rebecca and I started chatting about the style of her wedding and she really gave me a color palette and I just ran with it. I saw her wedding dress (all the pieces came from The Dress Theory here in San Diego) and it had an elegant boho feel about it. So that’s what I wanted the florals to embody.

Jess and Todd’s Lush Green Wedding at the Darlington House, La Jolla

weddings

Honestly, I can’t believe it took me this long to share this incredible wedding with you from July 2016. The couple is near and dear to my heart, as I’ve known Jess (the bride) for over 10 years! Both the couple are visionaries and creatives.  Todd is an amazing photographer from Chicago and obviously moved out here for Jess; but the weather, food and the people ain’t so bad either huh? And Jess is a videographer, director, and producer and the hot/cool teacher at a private school in Rancho Santa Fe that all the boys pretty much have a crush on. I’m sure of it.

Jess and Todd met while working on a documentary film together, traveling the Camino de Santiago following a man who has stage IV cancer and who dreamt of doing this walk. In the midst of producing this film, Jess and Todd got to know each other and obviously fell in love….and well…the rest is history and here’s the proof!
