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.

Exquisite Bouquets, The fashion show!

  Not only did we create for The Exquisite Launch Party, we were invited to participate in their fashion show we said, “YES!”

The lovely ladies walked around the Launch Party wearing some gorgeous wedding gowns and carried our custom bridal bouquets. Each one in a different style to show variety and cater to every type of bride.

Ombre is must! We went from the pale tones to hot pink all while keeping it romantic with a touch of silver dollar eucalyptus.

Not all brides gravitate towards the blush tones, so for this next bouquet we used dark purple and burgundy tones accented with ti leaves. Using purple hydrangea, black calla lilies, roses, dianthus and dahlias. OoOH lala!

I’ve noticed a lot of brides are leaning towards an earthy more organic approach to weddings. And this bouquet screams all that! Made of natural green foliage, curly willow, parrot tulips, cotton, succulents and garden roses. Simply stunning!

And last, but not least, our peach dream team. A gorgeous flower crown accompanied by a matching sherbert colored bouquet. Using Juliette garden roses, dahlia, parrot tulips, roses and freesia. Perfection!!

As always, it was a pleasure to design and create these unique bouquets, I hope you find something that inspires you to think outside of the box and go big with your own bouquet!

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.

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!

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

How adorable are these little guys!?

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

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!

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

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

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!

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.

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

Congratulations Angela and Tim!

Fall in Love!!

With the weather finally cooling down around here its beginning to feel like Fall!! I absolutely love this time of year!! The leaves are changing, it’s getting cold and I can finally wear my Ugg boots, scarfs and jackets! Hot cocoa by the fireplace here I come….well soon enough. This time of year also gets super busy wedding wise, which is why I havent had time to blog! I’m forcing myself to sit down and take a breath to tell all you lovelies out there about a super fun and creative event my sister and I recently got to be a part of! 🙂

Pottery Barn was having their Friends and Family event and asked for two floral centerpieces; one Fall themed and the other Winter. Now, I love the holidays, don’t get me wrong, but my sister Marisa…LIVES for the holidays!  She is SO incredibly crafty and has been bugging me about what we’re going to do for the holidays flower wise since, I’d say,  the middle of summer, at least! Haha! Nothing wrong with that! 😉

Oh, ok, so back to Pottery Barn…. with this opportunity to do absolutely whatever I wanted (which really doesn’t ever happen) I wanted to do something GOOOOD, and BIG, and holiday ishh with an elegant touch to it. I didn’t want to stick a turkey in the middle of a bunch of orange hoopla and call it done.  So, after looking thru a bunch of different materials for inspiration, it was time to put our plan into action and go pickin ( literally I mean pickin!).

I already had these GIANT crates that I wanted to use, so we were going to have to definitely downsize it…

So Marisa and her husband went to work sanding and resizing it.

Once we had the box ready, we were able to put our blend of cream, sand, pale orange and brown flowers together. I went picking, literally (see I told you!), through my friends neighborhood and found some foliage like magnolia leaves, dusty miller, sycamore leaves and other goodies to add that special FALL touch!!

And thanks to the lovely and TALENTED Megan Young of Megan Young Graphic Design & Photography, we were able to turn this into a mini photo shoot!

I’d like to take this opportunity to say that this could very well have been a  country inspired, vintage/rustic Fall wedding. So after making this lovely beast of mine, I got crazy and made a bridal bouquet to match!

Megan is so good with what she does and I highly recommend her for any or all your photographic needs! Check her out at www.megan-y.com for more information and samples of her work! I can not wait to collaborate with her again!
