Hot Fun

Holly & Jason flew in all the way from windy Chicago to be happily married at the classic La Valencia in La Jolla.. Focusing on a love for bright, fun colors that evoked the vacation feel of their San Diego destination, we found playful snapdragons and cymbidium orchids wrapped well in pink flax leaves. Holly’s bouquet was a soft, feminine spin on the color scheme- ruffly white nerines and ranunculus combine with blush garden roses and peonies with their golden … Read more

Julia & Michael wanted a romantic and luxurious feel to their wedding getaway. As a destination, La Jolla, California isn’t too shabby especially when staying and celebrating at The Grande Colonial hotel… with a color scheme that blended unbelievably well with the hotel’s own palette, the flowers covered a spectrum of warm corals to cool aquas… Julia’s bouquet knocked the color into place with it’s deep flame and mango miniature callas, dahlias, proteas, orchids, and echinachea pods, all tied with … Read more

Shades of Green

Shades of Green

I am personally very excited that everyone else is getting excited about Green Weddings. Green weddings are not a fad; they are here to stay, just as recycling and reusing, they will eventually become the norm. That is not to say that everyone will be wearing hemp wedding dresses and putting potted succulents on their guest tables, but there will elements of eco-consciousness available at every turn. Choose to use locally grown flowers and recycled glass vases like we did … Read more

Oh Hunny-Bunny!!

Happy and Joyous Easter! I admit I am a sucker for all signs of Spring- lambs, chicks, bunnies, pink and cheery anything. Yes, guilty as charged- I am a girl through and through. Still, there’s two ways to do pink- sweet and sassy.
