For the flowers she focused solely on decorating the barn, and wanted her guests to feel like they were walking into a Southern Night with the sweet smell of flowers. We decorated both chandeliers at Greengate and the 4 posts with over 100 gardenias, lilies, stock, hydrangea and foliages.

Elegant California Wedding Inspiration

Blush and White wedding with proteas, olive branches, peonies

We were so thrilled to be a part of this beautiful California inspired wedding shoot that was featured on Green Wedding Shoes. The shoot took place at a beautiful new venue on the Central Coast in the heart of the Edna Valley Wine Country, called Biddle Ranch Vineyard.  I feel blessed to be a part of this great team of vendors, which included the leading ladies of Karson Butler Events, who created the overall design and brought the shoot together to launch their new California office. It was also such a joy to work with the talented Jodi Miller Photography, who did an amazing job of capturing our CA scenery and light so perfectly!

The bouquet was created with the always stunning king protea, along with peonies, ranunculus, roses, olive foliages and touches of organic materials to create a light, whimsical feel to the soft and romantic colors. There's even a touch of pineapple guava's in there, can you spot them?! The centerpieces were created on the always impacting Fuse Trays we have available for rental and then the table was laid with a plush greenery garland of olive branches, silver dollar eucalyptus and bay leaves!

Bougainvillea Wedding, Paso Robles

This wedding was by far one of the most challenging but rewarding weddings of my career. As a florist we should know not to say "yes" to some things and using cut bougainvillea in one of the hottest locations, Paso Robles, CA, during August, should have been a clear "NO" but for some reason I did say yes, probably because I never like to say no, and in this case it paid off! I may have scooped out every bougainvillea bush growing in San Luis Obispo county, tested cut bougainvillea in fresh water, oasis and had sleepless nights over if it was going to wilt or not, but after this wedding was complete and I saw the images by the talented Jake and Necia Photography, it actually inspired me and reminded me why I love my job.

The inspiration of bougainvillea came from the brides hometown of San Diego, where it beautifully grows wild. I loved using the vibrant hues of this plant and loved bouncing the hints of purple and green off the fuchsia roses and anemones. And the mint foliage was the perfect accent and smelled great as well!

The centerpieces were created with candelabras trailing with bougainvillea and a gathering of small arrangements at the base. One of my favorite accents of this wedding was adorning the bride and groom chairs with the trailing bougainvillea.

The great team of Central Coast vendors for this wedding was lead by the girls at Touch of Style Events, with photography by Jake and Necia ,Catering from Trumpet Vine Catering, Lighting and DJ by Kramer Events, Venue Location Cellars 360, Paso Robles, CA and Calligraphy and Stationary from Umbrella Tree Designs.
