Monday cutie: a lovely feature on Style Me Pretty!

We had the pleasure of creating the personal flowers for this beautiful couple for their gorgeous wedding at Lago Giuseppe. I am in awe of the photos taken by 3 Nails Photography as well as all the rustic yet classy details the bride put into the wedding! For the full post on Style Me Pretty click here!


Monday cutie: Kari+Matt and the sweetest white dahlias I've ever seen!

Happy Monday! Today's cutie comes from Kari+Matt's wedding at Tiber Canyon Olive Ranch. Their blooms included shades of blush pink and cream with grey accents. There's something about this palette that really does it for me - it's so soft and sweet. We used blush pink peonies, lizzy and ranunculus accented by cream ranunculus, scabiosa, and the most beautiful white honeycomb dahlias I have ever seen. Congrats to Kari+Matt and thank you to Sarah Kathleen Photography for sharing some images with us!


Monday cutie: a weekend off in the summer? Whaaaaat?

Hello friends! It has been too long since my last post and I have no excuses for you! With a wonderfully busy wedding season, 4th of July, and a great weekend away I've just been a down right slacker! Well...I'm back and this week I'm sharing a little fun getaway weekend with you. My friend April (yes..I know it's confusing to add another April in the mix) is getting married at Stillwaters Winery in late August and the girls and I took this past weekend off to celebrate her upcoming nuptials. We whisked her away to Los Olivos and had the BEST weekend I think we all could have asked for! We rented the cutest house in downtown Los Olivos and enjoyed every minute of our visit. We tasted some wine from Saarloos & Sons and delicious cupcakes from Enjoy Cupcakes then we visited Mattei's Tavern for dinner and got our groove on at Mavericks Saloon in Santa Ynez! It was such a fun weekend filled with laughter and good memories. Here are a few shots from the weekend! Next week I'll be back with some flowery goodness!
The bride to be! 

Don't ask! Maegs loves Christmas! Haha!


Monday cutie on a Tuesday: a lovely GWS feature with AH-mazing artists!

Hello all! Where do the days go?? Monday was lost with a great day spent with my husband so here we are on Tuesday. So excited to share this post with you today. We had the pleasure of teaming up with some amazingly talented people for a photo shoot highlighting Lisa Leonard's amazing handcrafted designs. Lisa Leonard's personal creations are perfect for bridesmaids gifts and such, Cameron Ingalls photos make me swoon as usual, Enjoy Cupcakes made our mouths water, Jessi Skipton gave some glam to our models already beautiful faces and Flying Caballos provided the gorgeous backdrop. "True Love Always Wins" was our inspiration with a kick of some sexy equestrian! Ranunculus, freesia, viburnum, tulips and dusty miller complimented everything just right...at least I think!

Monday cutie: Kate+Bill and an accomplishment!

Hello all and happiest of Mondays to you! I have a little treat to share today.....Kate+Bill were married at Spyglass Inn a short while back and it was truly a pleasure to work with such classy folks. Kate choose deep burgundy, pinks, creams and fuchsias for her beach fete and I think the colors just pop off the page. We used anemones, hydrangeas, mokara orchids, cymbidium orchids, roses, ranunculus, dahlias and dendrobiums to pull it all together. I am most proud of her luscious cascading bouquet. I had never made one before (not a style often requested by my clients) and it was really a "learn as you go" kinda thing.  My dear friend Sarah came along with me to set things up and we were able to stay after setting up, with a mid-afternoon nip and watch the wedding take place from the restaurant patio. It was a beautiful ceremony! Congrats Kate+Bill! Thanks to Sophie with Mike Larsen Inc. for sharing some pretty pics with us!


Monday cutie: Jen+Mike+flower doggies and a feature on Grey Likes Weddings

So excited to share this sweet wedding with you all today. Jen+Mike and their doggies Brown Pants+Fergie make the cutest little family. It was fantastic working with Jen - her laid back and trusting personality made my job so much fun! Their wedding was at Santa Margarita Ranch on a beautiful (but warm day) in May. We used lilac, viburnun, garden roses, succulents, lavender, hyacinth, ranunculus and other pretties to pull it all together!  Cameron Ingalls captured some stunning images and graciously shared some with us! Grey Likes Weddings also gave Jen+Mike a front page feature on their blog - FUN! See the full post here.
