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)!!
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.
Happy New Year friends!
This coming year brings a lot of amazing weddings for some incredible couples. But before we jump into the new year too quickly, in the coming weeks, I want to share some of my favorites of 2017 that I haven’t already!
I’ve taken a little break from blogging my weddings from last year, but I’m back at it now! As most of you know, I just welcomed my second son right before Christmas and now that we are all starting to adjust to being a family of 4, I am ready to dive into my 2017 weddings! So far in this winter, it’s been pretty rainy but I’ve been loving it. I have a fire started, my oldest has his line of garbage trucks in a row and my littlest is napping like a champ, which give me some time to just day dream of the amazing weddings I was able to be apart of last year. I couldn’t be more blessed to be doing something that I love, all the while being at home with my children. Being a full time stay at home mom while running a small business full time comes with its challenges (i.e.: I answer calls in my closet/bathroom to keep my clients from hearing my screaming kids or Daniel Tiger/Thomas the Train that is blasting in the background) but it’s all so worth it because I get to meet amazing couples like Kirby and Katie!
What a fun wedding to be apart of when you just adore the couple as much as I adore Andrew and Jeanette! Both are coffee connoisseurs and amazing creatives! I love how they focused on a couple key pieces of their wedding to be the statement: the ceremonial arbor installation and Jeanette’s dress!
This has to be the biggest bridal party I’ve ever seen! But that is such a reflection of who Andrew and Jeanette are as people and how they are amazing friends and the value they put in their community. Love it!
Ok, so this wedding may be one of my favorites that I’ve done. From the authentic fiesta pots and vases from Mexico to the rustic adobe bricks of the venue and down to every single vibrant color that I got to play with for florals. It was so fun! When Hannah and I first met to talk about her wedding we drafted a completely different style and concept. Then one day she messaged me to meet again because she had changed her wedding theme/style. I was so intrigued to what she had changed it to and then when she showed me some pictures of fun tiles and vases that she and Brandon had picked up from their day trip to Mexico, I was sold! They wanted their wedding to be a fiesta celebration and I couldn’t wait to get started on their florals! I really am so lucky that they gave me a lot of creative freedom to run with this because I just couldn’t wait to play with all the colors that I had in mind. So without further ado, I’m just gonna let these pictures speak for themselves.
Ever wonder how the stars are after rainy week? How the trees smell after it’s been watered by Mother Nature? Well, Krista and Chris’s very rustic wedding at the Hidden Oaks Estate in Ramona, CA allowed their guests to feel their love, smell the fresh earth and dance under the bright stars! This couple is so sweet, funny, and energetic and it was so fun to do the florals for their wedding. I hope you enjoy a few snippets of their beautiful day!
