I thought I'd start out with some of my friend's weddings. Doing a friend's wedding is a great honor, and a bit nerve racking because it has to be beyond perfect! You love these friends and want them to still love you after their big day! :)
On July 3, 2004 Julie and Rob were married at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe-- one of my favorite San Diego locations!
Julie choose to go with a beautiful, soft color palate of ivory, white, and blush pink. There was over 90 dozen roses used in this wedding from the bouquets to the kissing balls that hung from the huge Pepper Tree, to the 20 dozen rose petal runner. Also incorporated was eucalyptus in the arrangements with sprigs of eucalyptus tucked into a ribbon wrapped napkin
Nicole and Ken were married in Santa Barbara, CA at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum in the heart of Downtown SB on September 10, 2005.
Nicole LOVED the look of the all dark Burgundy mini calla lilies which we combined with Black Bacarra Burgundy roses and light pink roses for her bridesmaid's bouquets and boutonnieres.
Emily and Derek Fox were married at the San Diego Catholic Diocese's Chapel on April 5, 2008 and their reception was at Derek's parent's home in Alpine.
Em loves tulips and so we did all red tulips for the reception, but for her Bridal Bouquet it was all elegance with two dozen long stem white French Tulips.
Becca spent a great deal of time making sure her dream wedding was perfect. For her flowers she wanted mostly white and ivory with a touch of light pink and lots of bling! She also wanted lots of candle light to set a romantic atmosphere. The result was elegant and picture perfect.
It was a beautiful day and Ali had a clear vision for the flowers and decor... "dusted off from Grandma's attic" organic feel with dahlias, poppies, succulents, billy balls, dusty miller, etc... The personals and reception flowers were arranged by Honey and Poppies, but I was able to arrange the ceremony "focal point," a beautiful sofa table that they purchased to have in their home as a reminder of such a lovely day.
My brother, Ryan, and his wife Ali were married on August 28, 2010 at a private residence in Rancho Santa Fe called the "Emma House."
