Small Floral Accents for a Graduation

Sometimes a beautiful venue just needs a small accent. This event is a perfect example of that. Each of these centerpieces were created from white lilies, sweet William and spray roses.  A great little accent for the table!

Be sure to check out this other event in the same room at the Queen Mary:



Feather and Jewel tone wedding flowers!

I love when a couple tells me to “have fun” with their flowers. The end results always end up being amazing and something I am supper excited about. This couple was one of these couples. The bride handed me a ton of feathers for me to use in the flowers to wear and the bouquets. The end result was unique creative and best of all, exactly what the couple wanted.

You may remember the boutonnieres from the post here:

For the bouquets each of the bridesmaids carried something slightly different. They all had multiple color dahlias, marigolds, sweet William, hanging amaranths, berries and feathers.

The bride carried a gorgeous mix of orchids, dahlias and various accents that coordinated perfectly with the bridesmaids.

The Groom and the Mothers and Grandmother wore feathers accented with dendrobium orchids.

For the décor, since the tables were very narrow we used a mix of carnation and rose petals along with flower heads to bring in the rich colors.


There was even an amazing fountain we accented with petals and flower heads. You can check out the Venue here:

You can not forget the cupcakes! These cupcake looked SO good and I really wanted to try one! We put just a few flower heads around the area for that pop of color. The cupcakes were from: .

This couple was great to work with and you can see their love for each other! I wish them a wonderful life together!

Summer Sunflower Wedding

Sunflowers are such happy flowers! They were perfect for this couple who were married earlier this summer at Mariners Church in Irvine CA.

The Bride carried a bouquet made with Sunflowers, lissianthus, delphinium and statice.

The personal flowers were all made from sunflowers.

For the ceremony we hung pomanders made from sunflowers and hung sunflowers on Sheppard hooks down the aisle.

The reception was upstairs in one of the banquet rooms. The table names were written on super cute chalkboard tags and on each table there was a picture of the couple at each location. It was a great personal touch!

The cake was a “dummy” cake on the bottom and cake the couple was able to cut on the top layer.

After the ceremony we moved the flowers to the head table. It was a great way to reuse the flowers!

And of course…. a few of me working away!

Romantic Castaway Wedding Flowers

This wedding was so fun! I love when the bridesmaids carry white flowers against a colored dress. It truly does stand out beautiful!

The bride described her wedding as a “romantic castaway” theme. The ceremony was on beach in Huntington Beach with the reception at Don the Beachcomber in Sunset Beach. It truly was the perfect venue for her theme! And when I went back after the reception everybody looked like they had a fantastic time.

The Bride carried a bouquet made from blue hydrangea, white lilies, cymbidiums and dendrobium orchids. Rolled variegated leaves add the perfect finishing touch! Jute ribbon and a brooch finish off the handle.

The Bridesmaids wore royal blue dresses and carried bouquets with mainly white flowers. The bouquets were made from white hydrangea, white lilies and touches of dendrobium orchids accented with the same rolled leaves. The handles were covered in a royal blue ribbon that had a touch of sparkle in it and wrapped with jute to tie everything together.

The personal flowers were all created with white dendrobium orchids.

At the reception we placed a flowers “gift box” on the gift table which was a fun accent for the table!
