{ Richard Nixon Library Wedding }

This past weekend I attended the wedding of a dear friend and her sweetheart at the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda. If you've never been to the venue before, it's a knock-out location for a glamorous celebration. Speaking of glamorous...check out the high-glam flowers the bride had me create for her wedding day. So unique and so her! I wish I had pics of all the boutonnieres and corsages as well, but you'll have to wait along with me for the photographer to share those. Can't wait!

Bridal Bouquet: Vendela roses, ivory spray roses, gold holly berries (individually wired and clustered), and British ivy sprayed gold.

Bridesmaid Bouquets: Amnesia rose, filler (can't remember the name at the moment, but they smell amazing!), gold holly berries (individually wired and clustered), and British ivy sprayed gold.

{ A Succulent Bouquet }

If unique is what you like, take a look at this incredible creation! At the request of the bride the bouquet was designed with a grouping of succulents, green cymbidium orchids, and fuchsia gloriosa for a punch of color. For the groom's boutonniere she wanted a simpler approach with a small cluster of green succulents. The combination was stunning!

{ Champagne & Chocolate Bouquet }

After tying the knot in the San Diego LDS Temple, this handsome couple set sail on a sunset cruise through the Newport Harbor. The bride held a beautiful bouquet comprised of Sahara and Vendela roses, Charlie Brown cymbidiums, spray roses, Hypercium, Monkey tail, and glamorous Swarovski Crystals. While the groom's boutonniere featured a single cymbidium and some soft white spray roses. The combination was simply delicious!

{ Brad & Lindsey's Wedding Day }

It's so fun when I get the chance to do flowers for my friend's weddings. I became buds with Brad, the groom, back in September of 2008 when I went to San Francisco for Labor Day weekend. And I became friends with Miss Lindsey, the bride, in March when we traveled to London and Paris for my birthday. And now these two fabulous friends are married! I love it when that happens.


To check out more gorgeous pictures of the bride and groom and their perfect day together, visit the photography blog of Rachel Thurston. Thanks for making my flowers look so good Rachel!

{ OCMA Succulent Centerpieces }

Last summer I had the pleasure of providing unique arrangements for the Orange County Museum of Art's Live Auction, held at the Westin South Coast Plaza. With the theme "A Modern Night," I created 36 modern succulent branches as the centerpiece for each participant's table. The result was marvelous.

{ LBM: The Montage Photo Shoot }

In late January, the talented floral designer Hannah Koo and I were invited to participate in a series of photo shoots throughout the city of Laguna Beach. We donated several blushing arrangements and bouquets for bridal shoots to be featured in an upcoming special wedding edition of Laguna Beach Magazine.

The shoot consisted of a series of events: a proposal on the beach, followed by a romantic lunch in the room, then an afternoon at the spa, and finally a classy dinner at Montage's 5-star restaurant. The images were later published in Laguna Beach Magazine: The Wedding Issue.

{ A Sunflower Soiree }

Sunflowers and black and white patterns – two classics combine to make one striking party! The inspiration for this party came from Carolyne Roehm’s cherished book, A Passion for Parties. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s an absolute must-read! Fabulous ideas and tons of eye candy.

Sunflowers are abundant during the summer months – so take advantage of these “happy” flowers and use them for your next birthday or dinner party. Mixed with bold stripes, sunflowers create a graphic, modern look for any event.
