C&E {Rancho Las Lomas}

I really enjoyed having C&E as clients for their Rancho Las Lomas wedding. They were the sweetest people and I couldn’t have asked for better clients! Thank you again for the honor of working on your wedding! Here are more floral detail shots from Chenin Boutwell… wedding by the lovely Eva of Red Velvet Occasions.

The venue’s famous blue tiled wall:

The wedding arch consisted of curly willow branches, eucalyptus, lisianthus, statice, hydrangea in green, ivory and blues, and green amaranthus.

C’s bouquet with hydrangea, freesia, anemones, mini cala, maidenhair fern and tree fern that created a very wispy ‘feathery’ look to go with their peacock theme:

C’s genuine reaction when she first saw her bouquet was wonderful & I am always so glad to do what I do when I see a bride taken back with happiness.

E’s bout of mini cala, scabiosa, a little statice for that pop of color and tree fern:

Honor attendant wristlet & bouts:

 A shot of the happy couple with E’s parents… I like this one because it shows the lovely iris wristlet on his mom:

C & her ladies:

Bridesmaid bouquet of casablanca lilies, fiddlehead ferns, scabiosa and tree fern. A great call on C’s behalf to give her bridesmaids white bouquets to contrast with their vibrant dresses, don’t you think?

Ceremony… when brides request swirly petal aisles, I make them looser in design, giving it a more organic touch because… well, the other way just isn’t our style.

A little cocktail hour guy with ranunculus, dianthus, statice and of course, scabiosa (did you notice that was a Bunch Studio favorite?)

For the centerpieces we had 3 alternating styles: low and lush, a trio of filled cylinders, and topiaries:

Each place setting had a sprig of statice… a simple elegant touch to any dinner table:

The dessert station by My Sweet & Saucy was also placed underneath the arch:

And ending with beautiful Christine!

Remember the Anatomy of a Sparkler tablescape I did with my friends Zoie Events & IbiCake in January for Utterly Engaged’s New Year’s Party?


Well Jenny of Alders Photography loved it so much she brought me on to do her friend’s Bridal Shower! She coined it Perfect Chemistry… how clever is that? Jenny added so many great details to my concept, it was fantastic to see it come to life! I definitely wanted to stay as a guest.. I mean, gazpacho served in mini beakers..??!! The shoot was featured on Style Me Pretty today.. check it out here!


 

 


Thanks Style Me Pretty!

T & S: Married! Weekend recap, our own wedding Crunch time…

T & S are officially married! I was honored with the opportunity of designing their wedding flowers for them & cannot wait to share pics from their awesome and fun photogs Amy & Paul Kawabori. Here’s a teaser from their wedding day, an image of T & her oh so pretty gals.. i love the freshness and airiness of this image:

(um, how about those shoes?!)

Again, I was a guest as well as a vendor, which is always hectic, but with the help of my awesomeeeee team, I was relieved of stress and was able to sleep the night prior AND enjoy myself at the wedding (yes, i got to dance my arse off this time… and i love to dance!). Congrats again you lovely people I get to call friends. Thanks for allowing me creative freedom from the very beginning… and enjoying your perfect day! to end that perfect day, we paraded to Roscoe’s for some late night chicken and waffles with the bride & groom! and oh was it delish… :D

The following day we headed to my brother’s for his daughter’s 4th birthday party, a Hello Kitty themed party!!! My kinda party. And then shortly after that we celebrated with N’s brother, because the 4th is his birthday (how special to always have fireworks on your birthday!). Today was a lazy and grand food adventure with N’s sister, having quite the bbq spread. It ended with a date night at The Foundry with our fave foodies J+Laur. I am SO full! But man a day with good food is a good day indeed.

SO now I am officially on Crunch time with my own wedding, folks. SIGH…. With about 2 months left to get it all together (oh, and invitations designed and finalized and SENT out), I am slightly feeling the rush… but here’s a peek at my bridal shower invites that I did enjoy leisurely doing… (yes, control freak, HAD to design my own). I’ve never attended a real tea party before and am really excited for my own that my sister is hosting! I like that they are all mismatched pieces, much like the tea cups and saucers we’ll be having.

Have a great short week!!
