Here is Part 2 of Geometric Goldmine. When weddings are this over the top AMAZING we need 2 posts to show all the fabulous details! From the amazing venue at Temecula Creek Inn, to their adorable Sweetheart Table, this wedding is truly one of our favorites!!08.15 Marc & Michanne_Wed-370

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

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!

EW Event_SS-030

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!

EW Event_SS-031

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!!

EW Event_SS-033

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!

Kelsey and Josh

 A young and very much in love couple from my church recently got married and Seven Stems was honored to be part of their joyous day. Kelsey was a DIY bride who was inspired by babies breath and hydrangea with accents of peach and coral. Crystal, of Crystal Nicole Photography, did a beautiful job capturing Kelsey and Josh’s special day. I hope you all enjoy!

Kelsey wanted a delicate floral crown of babies breath. She looked absolutely gorgeous!!

 Her bridal bouquet was full of white hydrangea, peach stock, babies breath and a few succulents. Loved it!!

Her awesome bridesmaids had all different dresses in shades of coral and peach. Their bouquets where light and fluffy bunches of babies breath. Cute shot!

Congratulations to the happy new couple!

Kayla and Ronnie

One of my favorite weddings of 2013 was at The Villa in San Juan Capistrano for Kayla and Ronnie. They are the sweetest couple and just SO darn cute! Everything about their wedding was romantic, bright, warm and inviting! Tyler Branch, of Tyler Branch Photo, did an amazing job capturing every detail, so enjoy! 😉

The Villa  is such a unique venue with so many areas to place flowers to make your guest feel more at home. Here are a few of the lovely arrangements we had throughout some of the seating areas.

Kayla wanted a soft color pallet keeping in mind the sunset colors of Fall. So we used a lot of pastel colors with pops of orange and yellow. Some of the flowers used were; Stock, Larkspur, Kale, Anemones, Dahlias, Roses, Succulents and Lisianthus.

 Silver dollar eucalyptus, bay leaf, and pepper tree were some of the greens we used that were in full bloom during this season. Flowers were added to these on site urns in the courtyard area. Simply stunning!

Kale has been pretty popular these days, and was a “must have” for this wedding. Yes, it is the “giant green vegetable looking thing” in this centerpiece. 😉

Kayla has such a bright and bubbly personality! So we thought having her bouquet full of all color would help to make her shine brighter!

Mission accomplished! It was a perfect match!

With her bouquet being full of color, her bridesmaids bouquets were all white and really popped against their coral dresses.

 An added feature to their wedding, was a moss-covered “K” and “R” to welcome the guest’s! Love the grey suits for the guys!

The boutonnieres were cute and simple! Loved all the different ways we wrapped them!

Their arch. OMGOSH!!! It was so full and lush and I could go on talking forever and ever about it. By far, one of my favorites, of all times! And that says a lot, considering I’ve been doing flowers for over 10 years now!

Cheers to the happy couple!!

Their centerpieces consisted of hydrangea, kale, succulents, dahlias, roses, lisianthus, orchids and pepper tree.

The cake table was adorned with a couple of centerpieces and, of course, the toss bouquet. Simply jaw dropping! All of it!

Thank you to everyone who helped make this wedding a huge success! All the best to this lovely couple!

Antique Love Photo Shoot!!

During the summer, we had the opportunity to put together a fabulous photo shoot with some wonderful professionals, Studio Carre’ photography and Cynthia Zatkins Events. Our theme was antique love and this is what we came up with. Our spread in San Diego Style Weddings Magazine wasn’t able to show all the lovely details that went into this, so here we are to re-examine them for your viewing pleasure, ENJOY!

Marisa and I knew we wanted something to create a more dramatic effect while still maintaining the romantic feel of the shoot. We came up with this structure built of birch branches, covered it with curly willow, passion vines, hanging crystals and pearls. We also found these fantastic hanging votives and filled them with our theme flowers.

View More: http://studiocarre.pass.us/sdswtabletop2013

 It was all set and ready to shoot, until we all noticed this empty “hole” in the center of the hanging décor/votives. Michelle on site with no tools, minimal supplies “MacGyver’s” this little a bird nest, flower ball, gem. I think it might be my favorite part!

We used rope to tie the birch branches together and also used it to hang the structure from the tree. La Jolla Women’s Club let us use their location and if you haven’t been there, I highly recommend it. Their gardens are just beautiful!!

Peonies, garden roses, mint leaves, hydrangea, mokara orchids and budlia were just a few of the beauties we incorporated.

View More: http://studiocarre.pass.us/sdswtabletop2013

We used bud vases, mercury glass, a terrarium and antique candle holders to add to the theme. Each filled with something special! Lavender, succulents, curly willow the list goes on and on!

 Our colors were melon and cornflower blue. Its hard to find blue flowers that will work with you, not against you. And thankfully, we found this gorgeous hyacinth! It was just the right touch to bind all the textures and colors together.

 Fresh Invitation Studio created this wonderful dinner menu and “thank you” note to compliment our theme!

 For the special bride and groom, flowers were added to decorate their chairs. Ribbon and lace were used to tie on the beautiful florals and passion vine.

TREATS!!  Thank you Cassy, from Celebratory Treats! Gluten free never tasted so good.

celebratory_sevenstems2

A different way to show off your flowers, we thought this cake stand was so adorable and  had to incorporate it somewhere. The treat table was a perfect fit!

The boys from Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler really hit it from head to toe! They looked so cute in their vests too! 🙂

lifeissweet_sevenstems2

These gorgeous girls from Morgan Scott Boutique really added that special touch to our tea party with their handmade headpieces. We had the pleasure of wearing a couple of their beautiful work during the event!

I Love the way this little mason jar transformed the cocktail area! Those colors just really popped!!

sidetable_sevenstems2

We served two different blends of tea, decaf and regular, which were a big hit! As I was constantly having to run back to the kitchen and make more. It was definitely yummy! I highly recommend TEAVANA in the Mission Viejo mall.

The Latest Shoot!

Here are the pictures from our latest photo shoot in case you missed the posts on our Facebook! Marisa and I  had that “creative itch”, and what better way to do that, then re-create a whole wedding…. for fun! So we went to work brainstorming and getting crafty with wood pallets and, voila’! ENJOY!! ( We certainly did!)

The arch Marisa built and stained turned out better than I could have ever have imagined it! She is SO crafty and I am SO thankful to have her has my partner…in crime ;)!

Thanks to the lovely and TALENTED Megan Young of Megan Young Graphic Design & Photography, we were able to have her work with us and be a major part of our photo shoot! She is so great to work with and I can’t wait until our next project!

We wanted to keep this project very organic and chose flowers that were very earthy. Using flowers such as Kale, air plants, acacia, hydrangea with roses and Spanish moss, I think we accomplished it beautifully!

The bridal bouquet is a combination of all the lovely flowers we used. Adding in succulents to keep with the organic theme. Using lace to wrap, I think this might be one of my favorites, I’ve ever made! It was just so sweet and smelled amazzzzzzing!!

Tea party bouquet

Every groom needs to match his bride, so I decided to give our imaginary groom plenty of options to choose from. I just love how these came out! How awesome is the mint in there!?

Its come to my attention that flower crowns are becoming an up and trendy thing for some brides, so with this opportunity to do whatever I wanted, I decided to make one and model it for you personally… HAHA!

And no wedding is complete without a centerpiece to place at all your tables for your lovely guests, to finish it off we created a beautiful arrangement in an awesome tin container. Did I mention how lovely everything smelled?!
