Kimberly wanted to make a statement and her wedding did just that- from the stunning black Vera Wang Dress to the 100+ gardenias we used to make the barn at Greengate Ranch, smell like a warm Southern night it was an unforgettable wedding.

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!

Coral + Rose Gold Inspiration

A few months ago a photographer friend and I probably had a little too much coffee and decided we needed to do something big.... thus came the Coral + Rose Gold Inspiration Shoot! We wanted to do create a look for brides to draw new and refreshing ideas from for their upcoming weddings. We've seen the blush and gold, the emeralds and pinks, the wedding whites, but I wanted to add a pop of color and go a little bit extreme with the new color trend that brides have been asking for and that was, CORAL. I've had a lot of brides asking for corals, but I wanted to add a twist onto the coral with the ombre style of going from light to dark, by using peach, coral and reds, with an accent of rose gold. The rose gold plays so well off these colors and I really love using the bold colors in the flowers to make the photos pop and add a bit of drama.  I hope you enjoy this shoot as much as we enjoyed creating it. Please make sure to check out all the amazing vendors that teamed up with us to make this vision come to life, and a special big thanks to Mirelle Carmichael for the stunning photos.

This ombre bouquet was created with coral charm peonies, garden roses, spray roses, dahlias and sweet peas. I also added in some foliage of umbrella fern and rose gold eucalyptus leaves.

A simple sweetheart table design with a trailing centerpiece is a perfect accent to any table! This floral chandelier was a dream to create, the coral charm peonies opened up perfectly and were such a stunning part. The hanging amaranths in the center brought in the flow and created a natural ombre look to the design.

I Love the idea of using all foliage for bridesmaids bouquets. These greens pop of color of the coral dresses and you can add some much texture with foliages. These bouquets included, umbrella fern, mint leaves, explosion grass, veronica, and green fern curls. 

The place settings were creating with the Rose Gold Design Master spray paint over maiden hair fern leaves. We also sprayed the fern curls the rose gold to tie into the place settings.
