Boho Rehearsal Picnic

We love a good styled shoot. Not only are we able to work with our fav vendors (shout out to our besties!), but were able to be super creative and help brides think outside of the box, ahem, restaurant in this case. Me being 8 and half months preggo and about to pop, I wanted to get one last shoot in with great vendors. Almost like a baby moon, but for the wedding obsessed.

La Jolla is know for it’s breath taking views & amazing weather. We wanted to take a break from ordinary and go for a rehearsal dinner OUTSIDE. Keeping things relaxed, laid back, and fun.Mr. & Mrs. Wedding Duo_Seven Stems 30

With floor seating, and mismatched table wear, our rehearsal picnic is what Boho Chic dreams are made of. All under the stars and market lights. Letting the party flow with some glow. SD Social Lights rocked this set up as usual. Thanks Boys!

Creating a look this effortless is easy when you get great rentals, like we did from Lauren Sharon Vintage Rentals. Add in some great decor, like lanterns, candlesticks, amber glass,  mixed metals and of course our favorite, perfect blooms! Our base colors were brown, tan, blus, and creams. Giving us the freedom to add pops of colors throughout without getting lost. This created a beautiful flow that we absolutely adore.

Opting for floor seating meant taking our table to the next level. Plush comfy pillows surround our perfect tablescape. Mismatched place settings set upon lush greenery. Done & Done.

Candles, votives and blooms completed the bohemian vibe.

Our favorite part of the shoot was the photo backdrop. Part macrame dream catcher, part photo op, 100% RAD!

When talking parties, you can’t forgot the dessert. What’s a party without it? Our cake from Sweet Cheeks Baking Company, surely didn’t disappoint. With it’s square shape and adorable cactus detail, and macrame details, we were in love!

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.

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!
