My last wedding before all of the world shut down was in Feb 2020, which was just weeks before California was in lockdown. I was lucky to also be a guest at this beautiful wedding and thinking back, it feels like a lifetime ago…
Carley and Joe got married on such a fun day of 2-22-20! Even I won’t forget their anniversary so Joe better not haha (also he got the date embroidered inside his jacket pocket so I don’t think he will). They chose an intimate and lush venue that is new in San Diego called Flora. I love how that inspired our color palette and style for the wedding. We chose to keep things simple and minimalistic with lots of whites and creams and greenery.
Often times I will suggest to my clients who have a big bridal party to go for posy size bouquets for their bridesmaids. It saves the bride money as well as making her own bridal bouquet look more grand.
My favorite part of working with florals are the varies color palettes that I get to explore. Jenica + Kevin’s wedding was in the Fall and we used a lot of warm and moody tones to reflect the season. We kept with the gold and marsala burgundy hues, while mixing in with textural sage greens. When I first met with Jenica, I was immediately drawn to her attention to detail. She has such a great artistic eye and I knew that we would be able to work so well together!
Half way into her wedding planning, she moved half way across the globe to Asia and so we were communicating and chatting remotely, but mostly through emails. But her vision for her wedding stayed consistent and clear.
I’m pretty excited to share this wedding with you. This sweet young couple is full of joy and love. Kaitlin might be one of the sweetest people out there and Ryan is a lucky man!
I love how classic Kaitlin went with her dress. From the fit to the sleeves to the buttons and the timeless lace that embodies the gown.
I’m so happy to be sharing this sweet young couple’s love and special day! Seriously, going through their photos gives me the butterflies because you can just see the pure joy and love on their faces!
I absolutely love Sadie’s dress and that subtle train with the double open lace back is just so sweet.
Gahhh, look at Sadie’s face. She makes me want to get married again to my husband. That first time seeing your best friend at the alter and ready to pledge your life to him is moment that needs to be captured for forever.
As this holiday season is quickly approaching us and wedding season is slowing down, I love using this time to reflect on all the amazing clients I got to work with and weddings I got to be a part of through florals. It’s truly amazing how faithful God has been in this little flower journey of mine. Through this, I am blown away by all the incredible people that has been put in my path. I’m just grateful. So very grateful. And this wedding is one of them.
Jane and Justin’s wedding was back in March at the Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano. The color palette we went with was an earthy spring tone. Lots of muted and soft citrus and blush. We wanted to give it a very romantic spring vibe.
I had the privilege to work with Holly on her stunning wedding vision to make a white and green wedding shine like a jewel! She wanted an elegant affair of deep emerald jewel tones paired with crisp white and cream along with subtle pops of copper tones to have a modern lush feel amongst the vineyard meadows in Temecula.
I am detailed oriented so when I see the vision and style carried out in little details, it makes my heart so happy! Jordan, the photographer, is just a magician with that camera of hers. She too, has a detailed eye and she didn’t miss anything! As a florist, to have someone capture every detail and flower that I’ve intentionally put and placed, makes my work feel so loved and seen.
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)!!
This Spanish inspired wedding at The Villa in San Juan Capistrano is soft, cozy, dreamy, and romantic!
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.
There is so much to love about this wedding and I cannot not share all this amazing goodness.
I had worked with Desiree over the phone for her whole wedding, as I do with most of my out of San Diego clients, but immediately when I chatted with her, I loved her heart and vision.
