How gorgeous is this wedding party? The bridesmaids wore tea length mint dresses and groom’s dude wore gray fitted suits. A combo everyone loves!08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-36608.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-08408.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-367

The bride stunned in an ivory Vera Wang ball gown (who doesn’t?). The groom rocked a  navy suit. They looked amazing together. Such a great match!08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-385

Ok, we can’t get over how cute the couples beloved dog was on their big day! A special wagon with tassels was used to transport the adorable pup! So sweet!!08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-246

We just love when couples choose to add unique elements to their ceremony. Michanne + Mark chose to incorporate a knot tying ceremony during their vows.08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-297 08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-300

Let’s talk arches. Not all arches are created equally. Check this beauty out.08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-215

Adorn with roses, dahlias, airplants, succulents and draping with silver dollar eucalyptus and green amaranthus, this arch is by far one of our faves. The deep blush and pop of coral added a dramatic and romantic element to their ceremony.08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-214

Can you just take a look at their LOVEFEST sign? Ok now check out the Stone House behind it. So pretty + fun!!08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-316

We created an amazing dessert display. Seriously, who doesn’t love doughnuts and mini treats? Simple, elegant, with just enough flair.08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-169

08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-165Adding unexpected design elements is must when pulling together your big day. We chose to spruce up the Stone House’s adorable hutch and  dusted it with greenery + dahlias. Adding photos of the couple and their pups, was such a great way to showcase their LOVEFEST!08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-170

We love a good cocktail as much as the next lady, and the couples bar surely didn’t disappoint. With custom cocktails, drinks were flowing!08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-192

Two words: Table Decor. We love a good tablescape. With a navy as a back drop, mismatched settings, and custom wine glasses, guests were more than impressed.08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-319

Mixed table top decor is a must when you have a large guest count, keeps it fresh, fun and grabs everyone attention to details.

How pretty was the couples sweetheart table? We loved the gold leather Mr&Mrs. The modern chairs truly popped of the rustic reclaimed wood table. Such a great combo.08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-434

Charmingly Chic Estate

CHARMINGLY_CHIC_V2

Weddings are super fun and full of love. But these two radiate love and happiness. Maybe it was their ear to ear smiles or stealing quick looks, but these two couldn’t keep their hands off each other. Just the way we like it!

Chelsea + Scott’s wedding truly warmed our hearts. Seeing a mother’s love for her son and a father’s love for his daughter blend together in one day is truly a magical moment.

chealsea2

From her amazing dress to her perfect bouquet full of dahlias to their seemingly effortless ceremony, Chelsea + Scott’s wedding was one our faves.We loved how their ceremony + reception all took place at her families Fallbrook Estate. The home was beyond beautiful and it was nestled in the s mountains surrounded with ridiculous views. This kept things super intimate.

thumb_163A0344_1024

Chelsea had a vision of “Rustic chic” mixed chairs with accents of black, white and taupe.  Lauren Sharon Vintage Rentals and Design, helped create the perfect space. Creating an effortless rustic look for the day. A clean color palette of black, ivory & cream kept things clean and simple. Perfect.

thumb_IMG_1344_1024

Having a solid color scheme and natural wood, gives the space an eclectic feel without being over whelming. Don’t be afraid to mix it up.
thumb_IMG_1321_1024

thumb_IMG_1311_1024Chelsea is a DIYer. She nailed each project with time to spare, all signage, tassels even the centerpieces! She is Superwoman.thumb_IMG_1361_1024

There’s always a little chuckle when we go over the Timeline, on  how little time the guys need to get ready. Scott won the award. The guys played golf all day and were onsite 1 hour till Ceremony, took 20 minutes to get ready. Literally! With time to spare. We caught them enjoying the calm before the storm. Guys are so lucky!

thumb_163A9416_1024We just love Scott & and his dudes rocked simple gingham shirts paired with slacks and vests. Such a fresh look.thumb_163A9378_1024

We went with our favorite local boothers,  Mobile Photo Booth. Fun, vintage, and pretty booths. Yep, I said it, pretty and their booths are just that. If you haven’t checked them 0ut, you need to. They are always smiling, have the best vibes and make the booth more than just a booth.

thumb_IMG_0083_1024

Props like mustaches and giant lips never disappoint.

thumb_IMG_0079_1024

We designed the bouquets in blush and ivory tones, with lots of textured greens. Adding to the overall design and complimenting the Bridesmaids mixed dresses. Keeping them the same draws attention without competing with the overall look.

This group of ladies have been forever friends, and are gorgeous inside and out.

thumb_163A9612_1024 Their fun antic inspired our next post! We cant wait to share THAT story. Fun. Beautiful. Bridesmaids. thumb_163A9580_1024

The night ended in the way is should, mini pies, cupcakes, cocktails and dancing! Jays Catering never disappoints with all their yummies. Guests had a blast all night!

So. Much. Fun.

From charmingly sweet details to a night full of dancing & laughter Chelsea + Scott’s wedding was epically perfect! All you need is love rings true when you blend the perfect mixture of love, happiness, & family.

Boho Chic

Bohemian. Boho. Organic. Freshly picked. We love it all! There is something about that messy perfect look that captures our hearts. Today’s Bride no longer strives for that perfectly round bouquet. The wilder the better,and we couldn’t agree more. Does it mess with our heads during the creating process? 100%!  Well thankfully San Diego Style Weddings liked our what they saw, and hand-picked our styled photo shoot for their January cover. Pretty AMAZING! The fabulous Temecula Creek Inn provided us the perfect backdrop. Here’s a collection of our favorite shots.

Pretty in Pinks!

Pink is such a beautiful color. There are so many different directions you can go with it: soft, bright, light, ombre’, fuchsia… the possibilities are endless! Pink and peonies were the only requests we had for our recent wedding. The Bride was working with us all the way from Texas. Yes, Texas! Having a destination wedding at the beautiful, Pacific Edge Hotel in Laguna Beach. With no real specific requests, this left room for the imagination (my favorite!) and this is what we came up with.

The beautiful Bride, Ellen was accompanied by her three junior bridesmaids. Their bouquets were full of pink ranunculus, stock, dalias, freesia, garden roses, spray roses and dusty miller. GORGEOUS!

How sweet is this picture!! Moms are the best! 🙂

Ellen was such a happy bride and it’s magnified in this picture!

Angela and Tim

 October was one crazy month for us. With the purple craze continuing, Angela’s wedding was a breath of fresh air. Don’t get us wrong, we love purple! But we also love a good challenge and here we were able to push our designs to the limit. Angela wanted a romantic feel, full of deep red and burgundy tones, Marisa and I were very excited! Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano was the perfect venue for this intimate wedding. One of our goals for the flowers is to not only exceed the brides vision, but to enhance the venue and we feel we paired them perfectly.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Angela’s bouquet was BIG and BEAUTIFUL! It was full of black baccara roses, burgundy dahlias, black calla lilies, red and burgundy spray roses and burgundy cymbidium orchids. Her flower girl wore a flower crown made of red roses.

0199

Not that this gorgeous bride needed any, but her make up was done by the lovely and talented Melinda Ruiz of Beauty by Melina. If you are still looking for someone to touch you up on your special day, call her!

0311

The boys sported some cute little boutonnieres made of burgundy spray roses and dahlia buds.

How adorable are these little guys!?

0102

The mother’s wore wrist corsages using the themed blooms.

0043

Pictures were taken before the ceremony, at the beautiful Mission. This crew walked through downtown San Juan Capistrano, followed by a mariachi band. A wedding present from the father of the bride.

LOVED IT!!

With everything set in place, guests in their seats; this wedding was ready to begin! Love these barn style gates!

0495

What better way to say “Here comes the Bride”. SO CUTE!

0535

This picture was too sweet to not include, Angela’s father walking her down the aisle.

0553

For their “arch” something non traditional and very touching: a cross! Using theme flowers and curly willow, this cross was absolutely jaw dropping!

0465

Burgundy roses, red roses, red orchids, dahlias and burgundy cymbidiums were just a few of the flowers on this gorgeous cross. We added dark purple hydrangea and trachelium to stay away from adding to the red and pink tones.

0466

The cross was one weekend project we couldn’t wait to construct. It was towering with a height reaching 10ft tall and was stained just the right tone to pop against the flowers. Lets just say this is definitely one of our favorites!

0623

For the reception, rectangle tables where lined up to form a “U” shape around the dance floor. Spread throughout the tables were mercury glass urns filled with these gorgeous flowers.

0461

Keeping with the theme, smaller clusters of flowers were added in addition to the votives and floating candles.

0458

The sweetheart table was full of floating candles wrapped in burgundy petals.

0460

At sunset with all the floating candles in play, this space was STUNNING!

Congratulations Angela and Tim!

Emma & David

Seven Stems was  honored to coordinate & create a close family friends wedding this past Summer.

Emma and David planned a beach themed wedding:  a romantic and elegant feel to it. We are proud to share their special day with you!

With a blush and lavender color pallet we incorporated spring flowers, herbs, and babies breath. These cute little boutonnieres and corsage’s added that special touch to the bridal party!

IMG_0365-XL

Looks like the guys really enjoyed them too! 😉

IMG_0795-XL

This luscious bridal bouquet was FULL of garden roses, fresh lavender, dahlias, and hyacinth.

IMG_0380-XL

For a day wedding, in early summer, candles at cocktail hour wasn’t going to work.  Here is a classic alternative!

I LOVE these garden roses!

IMG_1739-XL

We mixed up cocktail hour by using small arrangements for the lower tables. They turned out adorable!!

IMG_1748-XL

Hydrangea, lavender, dusty miller and babies breath; you can’t go wrong!

This bouquet, was PERFECT!!

 IMG_1169-XL

All table centerpieces were overflowing with kale, hydrangea, babies breath and lisianthus . Pops of orchids were added to top off the already gorgeous pieces!

IMG_1728-XL

It was a beautiful wedding with one of our favorite families; we were thrilled to be part of their special day!!

Congratulations Emma and David!!

Exquisite Weddings Launch Party

Let the “flowers do the talking ” is the goal when Michelle and I participate in any event. When the Exquisite Weddings Magazine email came for their Fall launch party, we were excited for the opportunity to show who we are. With the theme being”Glamour through the Ages”.

Our vision was to have a family room, mantel, couch, coffee table the whole shebang! When it comes to having our ideas come to life, it typically involves me with a hammer and nails. I’ve become quite the carpenter and tackling a living room set up was on the top of the to-do list. Thankfully the men in my life, my husband and dad know its coming and lend me a helping hand. Not so much willing but that’s another story. 🙂

As party favors for the brides to be, Michelle hand crafted these glitzy boutonnieres.

These cuties also came with a %15 OFF Coupon!! Did you get one??

After a couple of bumps in the road, or should I say thick carpet, we finally got the mantel level and flower frame up! A huge shout out to our new friends: Half Full Photography for saving our life, thank you for the shims!
