{ Dan & Autumn :: Sunny Summer Wedding }

Several weeks ago I was busy tying up a bouquet for this beautiful bride's July wedding. As I peered through the window panes, I thought the day was doomed to the foggy remnants of June gloom.

Luckily, when the flowers arrived at the Newport Beach LDS Temple, they brightened things right up. Literally! Take a look...

Dan & Autumn, thank you again for sharing these gorgeous photographs of your sunny southern California wedding. I hope the sun shines on you both forever and always!

{ Cole & Erin :: Summer Sunset Wedding }

Many months ago at my floral consultation with the Erin, I had this crazy idea to create her flowers around a tropical summer sunset. You know, kinda like the one you see HERE. I thought it would be the perfect pop of color to compliment her black, ivory, and gold color palette. Plus, it's August and who doesn't love some warm, vibrant blooms to set the summertime mood!

I chose to build the bouquets around this gorgeous, no, exquisite Baroness Garden Rose, and fluffed it up with some other rich blooms like lisianthus, freesia, and astilbe. And to cool things off a little, I added some fragrant mint leaves. I think they're the perfect addition to this picture-perfect bouquet.

Stay tuned for more pictures of the beautiful flowers designed for the couple's reception at a private residence in Laguna Niguel. Think summer fruits, flowers, and lots of fun!

{ Gavin & Megan :: Wedding Open House }

Here's a little something pretty to look at from Gavin & Megan's Wedding Open House a few weeks ago. I've never had a bride more complimentary of my work, and I kind of love it!

{ John & Sara :: A Blue Star Wedding }

John & Sara are as cool as they come. I remember getting the phone call from Sara many months ago, letting me know of their "secret" engagement. She didn't want the word to leak out just yet, as the ring was still in cue. So the two of us quietly began planning the wedding flowers, keeping in mind her color scheme of blue, white, yellow, and peach.

It was also important to Sara that we somehow make recognition of her new last name: Blue Star. Yes! That's her new last name! So fitting. So I carefully picked out these beautiful blue tweedia that mimic the shape of a star and scattered them throughout these unique cattleya orchid blooms. The result is something fun, fresh, and oh-so John & Sara!

{ Amber Keife :: The Wedding Day }

To say the month of August has been busy would be an absolute understatement! I can honestly say that when I decided to give this "hobby job" a try, I never in a million years dreamed I would be this busy. But I'm not complaining! Oh, no! I LOVE IT!!! So in a way, I feel the need to say thank you to each and every one of my brides! You know who you are. Thank you!

Here are a few photographs that I shot of the flowers I designed for Amber's August wedding in Chino Hills. I adore her clean palette of black, white, and green. And I loved her idea of including fresh limes in the centerpieces. I hope they were enjoyed by everyone in attendance.

{ Colin & Lauren :: Wedding Teaser }

Only one picture? That Rachel Thurston is such a tease! (Love you Rachel!) Apparently she's been really busy with wedding this month (sounds like someone else I know!) But thank goodness she took the time out of her crazy schedule to post this gorgeous pic of Colin & Lauren's wedding day. Hopefully it'll be enough to hold me over. I can hardly wait to see the rest!

{ Ryan & Naomi :: Sunflower Wedding }

My dear friend Ryan Finck picked an AWESOME woman to be his bride! From the moment I meant Naomi I knew she was PERFECT for him! And I'm not just saying that because she let me design her wedding flowers! Although that helped. A little.

Naomi was a lovely bride and a joy to work with! She knew exactly what she wanted: yellow sunflowers, black and white gerbera daisies, a pop of purple, and then left the rest up to me. Easy enough!

Congratulations Ryan and Naomi. Your wedding day was an absolute blast. Every wedding ought to have a Taco Stand. Good work!
