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.
This Spanish inspired wedding at The Villa in San Juan Capistrano is soft, cozy, dreamy, and romantic!
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!
This venue and this couple was just pure magic! For my non-local San Diegean brides, I have to work with them over the phone and I don’t meet them usually till their big day, so sometimes we take longer to communicate styles and inspirations (thank God for Pinterest right?) but for Jenn, I knew after the first phone call! Her kind and trusting personality came across immediately and I just loved working with her on this all whites and greenery magical wedding!
Her style was very clean, romantic, modern with a touch of whimsical.
There’s something so magical getting married under a giant tree with string light, surrounded by the people that love you and with warm summer breezes in the air. This little venue is tucked away in the side streets of Pasadena called Happy Trails Catering that offers the warm backyard feels of their space to get hitched.
For Chrislynn and Scott’s wedding I used a soft, dusty lavender palette, complimenting that with a dusty blue from blue thistle, dusty rose from quicksand roses, mint from dusty miller, and grey from silver bruina balls to neutralize the tones even more.
When I first met Allie, I was immediately drawn to her energy! She is just so sweet and spunky and I loved it! Later I found out that she worked for Young Life which I absolutely love! Young Life has made such an impact on so many of my friends growing up, helping them in tough situations in life. So I admire that Allie was a Young Life leader and loved the impact that I know she made on so many lives!
One of the things that I love to do is travel. So much so that I even get so excited to eat at the airport even though my husband tells me how awful and low quality airport food is because it is provided by a generic company not by the actual restaurant. I don’t care! And even the $10 chex mix (and I don’t really like chex mix) tastes so good! Does anyone get excited about the airplane food too? Like the mini peanuts and pretzels or if you’re doing an international flight, the small tv tray of food? Ha! No one? Just me? Ok, cool.
I’ve been beyond slacking on sharing these amazing weddings that I’ve been doing! It’s a combination of pregnancy lazy (I just want to sit on the couch and eat ice cream), the summer heat, and exhaustion from chasing after a toddler who just doesn’t have a stop button. Needless to say, I’m sorry! But here I am! And I’ve got to share this amazing wedding that took place at the bride’s parents’ estate. Raven is apart of a well known family here in San Diego where her family owns Hanger 94 (an action sport shop in East County San Diego) and her brother in law and dad started The Salty Crew which has blown up like crazy! Not to mention, this family is all about family, which what I admire about Raven and her family the most! They are all so close and tight knit and I love it! So when I had met with her initially for her floral consultation, I loved that her mother and sisters were all there!
I absolutely loved dreaming up this winter jewel toned palette with Raven. She wanted to keep things classy with black gowns for the bridesmaids and black tuxes for the guys. Adding pops of deep red, dusty blues, and varies tones of fuchsia pinks that brought out the rich jewel tone colors for this evening wedding.
I’m back at it! Finally after some time away from blogging about weddings, I have a good one to share! This year already has been so incredible working with creative brides who have a great vision but also trusting my work to deliver their vision for their amazing day!
Linda and Justin are such a sweet couple and it was such a pleasure meeting with them and dreaming up their wedding day! I loved their venue in the heart of downtown San Diego in an old historic hotel. The bricks and court yard along with the stormy clouds mixed with the twinkle lights all paired for the most perfect ambiance for this intimate wedding.
From her dress to her ring to her style…Linda is a pure classic and timeless lady through and through!
You guys! Family style dinner is my favorite. There’s something about breaking bread and sharing a good conversation with new and old friends that just warms my soul. Family dinners to me is such an intimate form of quality time spent amongst loved ones. I can’t wait for my son to be a little bit older where the chaos of feeding a toddler is a season of the past and cultivating fun and stimulating conversations is created.
it’s all in the details.
