Black Bacara and Black Magic Roses, Safari Sunset Protea Bouquet

How romantic! These deep red roses pair wonderfully with safari sunset. They add texture to an otherwise traditional bouquet (and help with the budget!).

Here's a photo of a peony, spray roses, and hypericum boutonniere I did for a Groom a few weeks ago. Melissa Fuller took this photo, and I just love the composition of it and thought it was a good opportunity to share some info about her. She's got an amazing eye, and can find beauty and show it to you in just about anything. Check out her website and see for yourself.

Peonies, Mini Callas, and Amaranthus

This is a soft, very feminine centerpiece from a V-Day wedding. The bride loved peonies (who doesn't, they are beautiful), so we lucked out by finding them out of season. Callas, especially mini callas, are always an elegant and statuesque flower, and the tulips, roses, and amaranth keep with the softness of the peonies. The green hypericum berries were added to create some additional texture and contrast.

Bright Bridal Bouquet

Here's a simple wedding bouquet I did for a Spring bride last season. I love all the warm tones an the combination of similar textures of ranunculus, roses, and tulips. She wanted the romance of red roses, and to keep it playful and somewhat garden-y at the same time.

Manzanita Wish Tree

Here's a cute option over the traditional guest book. Andy and Lu'chen decided to do a wish tree. Each guest chose a phrase that best suited their well-wishes to the happy couple, and signed or wrote a small message on the back. The bride loved succulents, so I incorporated them into the wish tree.

Sustainable Potted Centerpieces

I love succulents. They are so beautiful, and so fun to use as a sustainable option in centerpieces. I love the idea of putting your budget toward something your guests can not only take home, but keep for the long term too. Here's a photo of the centerpiece from a wedding I did a couple weeks ago.
