Dawn & Brian desired the sweetest ceremony, with all the trimmings and details of homegrown love like theirs…
Dawn’s childhood best friend and wedding planner helped her find a venue right in their own neighborhood- the ever classic Mille Fleurs restaurant in Rancho Santa Fe.
The palette of sky blues, marine navy and all hues in between popped with sunshine of yellow ranunculus, chamomile, and eucalyptus wrapped in vintage ribbon.
For the men, fetching handkerchiefs monogrammed with their initials on yellow gingham…
Nestled right inside the Mille Fleurs courtyard is this expansive tree- bedecked with playful ribbon streamers and dangling jars of blooms, it became the au natural backdrop the couple yearned for.
After the ceremony for cocktails, it was a free for all with croquet and picture taking!
The french countryside aesthetic came through the floral design with lush arrangements of tall white hybrid delphinium, acacia branches, yellow and white ranunculus, and icy daffodils in shimmering silver vessels.
Dawn & her mom made jam for all the guests as favors, topped with soft muslin fabric and a twine tie.
Dawn & I share a penchant for fancy vintage ribbons, so when she wanted something truly unique on her bouquet, it was easy to oblige! Apricot and grey embroidery of petite blooms wrap the stems of ranuculus and freesia, feverfew and scented garden roses.
Little egg cups and budvases toppled with blooms of every sort, including fresh lavender that gave the entire patio a relaxing fragrance.
More vintage ribbon to be found everywhere you looked, here tied around a vase adorning the table of family photos and the traditional Guestbook.
Rare cigar boxes provide housing for some fluffy china mums and ranunculus, acacia and yellow misty peek out the corners…
& the dessert display!
Ranunculus, and garden spray roses surround the cute cutouts of Dawn & Brian for their cake topper, while craspedia billy balls dot the cupcakes below.
Aahh… sweet love xo. Congratulations D & B
