Wedding: Candle-lit Winery Romance

We are dying to show this intimate candle-lit wedding that truly demonstrates the magic of candle light, mirrors,  long banquet tables and glittering simplicity.  

Our gorgeous, glittering crystal candelabras were dressed simply with delicate ivory hydrangea and placed atop a reflective mirrored tabletop.  Candelabras were connected with Swarovski crystal strands and lit votives were sprinkled around the runner, adding a warm glow when the lights were dimmed.

Tablescape: Textured & Contemporary

Every time we pair with the talented ladies at Couture Events, the result is magical!  For this styled tablescape created a few years ago, black linens and lace detailing were paired with a light fresh, lush and textured floral runner. 

Soft creamy ivory and blush tones were spotted with organic succulents, various pods and hand painted black orchid accents.  The STUNNING and unique paper details and acrylic menus were created by Nic.Roc. Designs and all of the magical details were captured by Teal Photography.  Well done ladies!!!  

Succulents were placed in glass orbs with dark glitter and strung from trees above the table.

Tracee & Ryan Wedding : Love at the Lodge

It couldn’t have been a more beautiful day for the gorgeous wedding of Tracee and Ryan, who tied the knot at the beautiful Torrey Pines Lodge in March of 2012.  It is always a pleasure to work with Rachel Leber of I Do…Weddings.  They chose a beautiful, natural color palette of soft ivories and whites with blush and green accents.  

The bride carried a classic bouquet of ivory and blush blooms to include roses, spray roses, ranunculus and white phalaenopsis orchid blooms.  

The groom wore a sophisticated ivory calla lily with a clean black wrapping. 

The FABULOUS ceremony took place overlooking the gorgeous Torrey Pines golf course and the serene ocean.  Tracee and Ryan were framed by tall ivory pedestals with large, draping floral arrangements placed atop clear glass cylinder vases and ivory petals lining the sides of the aisle.  

The reception was created with three types of centerpieces to include large, tall and draping floral centerpieces created from a mixture of hydrangea, roses, spray roses, snapdragons, stock and exotic white phalaenopsis orchids.  Three tall cylinder vases of the same height were grouped to contain dripping white phalaenopsis orchids for a cleaner looking centerpiece, and finally, a short centerpiece made from painted gold grape-wood studded with orchid blooms.

Grace & Jarred Wedding: Soft Beachside Beauty

To say that this couple likes to have a good time would be a serious understatement.  A perfect blend of sophistication and fun, Grace and Jarred chose the perfect color palette for their venue, the Scripps Seaside Forum, of ivory, blush, blue and green.  Everything looked gorgeous from the stunning ceremony canopy studded with blooms to the dramatic centerpieces.  

There were so many fun details at this wedding, lets start with the personal flowers and work our way through the ceremony and the reception. 

Grace’s stunning bridal bouquet was a mixture of roses, spray roses, calla lilies, dusty miller, succulents, fragrant peonies and delicate gardenias.  The detailed handle contained ruffled ivory satin with crystal, pearl, and chain detailing.  

Her bridesmaids bouquets complimented the warm blue tone of their dresses perfectly, blending soft with bold.  

The men wore simply understated boutonnieres of grouped ivory spray roses with brazilia accents.

The flower covered canopy was the essence of elegance, with soft sheer ivory silk softly blowing in the wind and crystal pendants hanging across the back glittering in the sunlight.

Two types of centerpieces were involved in this reception, short grape wood branches were stuffed with ivory and blush blooms, surrounded by our footed mercury glass candle holders.  tall sandblasted manzanita branches were studded with blush roses, delicate ivory orchids, organic succulents and fluffy hydrangea.  Hanging Swarovski crystal strands held glittering french cut crystal pendants.

Featured Bouquet Inspiration: Exquisite Weddings Spring 2012 

When asked to create a purple bouquet for an Exquisite Weddings Inspiration shoot, we jumped at the opportunity to do something a bit unique.  We created a very highly textured, tight bouquet ranging in purple tones from plum to bright fuchsias including roses, spray roses, dusty miller, anemones, succulents and various orchids to name a few.  We finished the handle with fun ruffles and pearl accents.  The bouquet was flawlessly captured by Eddie Garcia III of E3 Photography.

We adore Exquisite Weddings Magazine and always eagerly anticipate the arrival of their magazines to check out all of the gorgeous work of our peers.  In this issue, we had the honor of pairing with the FABULOUS Cynthia Zatkin, owner of Cynthia Zatkin Events.  Together, we worked on a color palette of various pinks with a fun pop of warm navy blue.  We were so happy when we heard the photography would be done by the VERY talented duo at Studio Carre, who always capture each detail so beautifully.  The setting could not have been more beautiful, centered directly on the beach at the Hilton Mission Bay.  Our florals were placed atop our rustic, distressed wood stands to match small wood boxes.  French cut Swarovski crystal pendant detailing gave the table a bit of understated glamour.      

The beautiful and fun paper goods gave extra life to the table and were created by Nic.Roc. Designs and the fun red velvet cake pops (they were SO delicious) were provided by Cake Ball Love.

Inna & Matthew: Parisian Estate Elegance in Rancho Santa Fe

It is always fun for us to meet a bride who is as passionate about her wedding flowers as we are, so when the FABULOUS Krystel Tien, owner of Couture Events, brought Inna to our studio for the first time, we knew without a shadow of a doubt that this wedding was going to be SPECTACULAR… and with True Photography taking the photos, it did not disappoint!!!  The wedding was set at the elegant garden-esque Emma Estate in Rancho Santa Fe, complete with a custom tent and a FABULOUSLY detailed cocktail hour.  

Inna chose a gorgeous floral palette of ivory, soft blush, pale pink, and lavender, emphasizing her love for peonies and lilac.  We created her bridal bouquet from pink peonies, pink and ivory garden roses, pale blush stock, white ranunculus, and soft lavender lilac.  

Her bridesmaids carried simple blush and ivory bouquets of stock, roses and ranunculus.  

The groom wore a tight grouping of white ranunculus buds while the groomsmen wore blush spray roses paired with blush rice flower.  

Cocktail hour was set by the pool, which contained 3 fabulous floating floral arrangements containing romantic pillar candles.  We attached glittering Swarovski crystal strands and hanging candles to delicately drip from the surrounding trees and seating area.  

The ceremony was almost as gorgeous as the bride herself, ripe with crystal and dripping in flowers.  Our gorgeous crystal chandelier was hung in the center of the archway, foreshadowing what was to come in the beautiful tented reception.  

The breathtaking reception was crystal studded with GORGEOUS crystal chandeliers provided by Concepts Event Design and our fabulous crystal candelabras topped with lush floral arrangements of hydrangea, roses, spray roses, peonies, garden roses and lilac.  Our glowing mercury glass candle holders and chic ivory urn vases were placed in between each candelabra, lush with florals to match the taller arrangements.
