{ Alex & Sophie :: A Backyard Wedding }

Welcome back from a lovely holiday weekend! Hope your Thanksgiving was as wonderful as mine! After a delicious turkey dinner with the family it was off to bed to get ready for a last minute weekend wedding in the morning. I love keeping busy!

With just a few days notice I had the pleasure of designing these garden-like bouquets for Alex & Sophie's backyard wedding right here in Huntington Beach. It was fun and exciting to take on such a last minute challenge and to try to satisfy the requests of the bride to create a "hand-picked, unstructured bouquet," a style I am quickly learning to love. Sweet, simple, and perfect for this backyard wedding.

{ An Attitude of Gratitude }

"We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses."
- Abraham Lincoln

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and remembered to give thanks for all the good things in life! I'll see you back here in a couple days for a new wedding sneak preview of a last minute wedding I've designing all weekend. See you then!

{ Jeff & Emily :: Hilton Huntington Beach }

Huntington Beach, what a great place to get married!!! I had so much fun working with Emily and her mother Jean on the design of her wedding flowers and it was a real treat to see it all come together. From the beginning Emily let me know that her two favorite flowers were sunflowers and pink gerbera daisies and the rest she left up to me!

I think the images of their special day turned out beautifully as well. Here's a snippet from the email I received with a few images sent from the Coffey family: "We are very pleased with the photos and I'm sure you'll want a few for your site. You did an amazing job, and the photos certainly capture that! Hope they bring a smile to your face!"

Well Coffey family, they most certainly did! It looks like it was a picture perfect wedding day and it was an absolute pleasure to share it with you. Congratulations and best wishes for the future.

{ Liz & Devin :: Wedding Sneak Preview }

What a weekend! I can't remember the last time I was that busy with wedding flowers! But you know what, I wouldn't have it any other way! It's amazing how passionate I've become about this "job" of mine. Each wedding has offered it's own challenges, joys, ups, downs, and everything in between. But that's why I love it. There's always something new to learn!

This weekend I had the pleasure of designing some stunning arrangements for the wedding of my friend Liz Haefer. I was elated when she told me her colors were yellow and grey. And even more so when she told me of her love for peonies and billy buttons. My mind began racing with all the wonderful possibilities this could bring. Here's just a sneak peak at how the centerpieces turned out. You'll have to wait til later for the rest from her professional photog. I have a feeling they're going to be amazing!!!

{ Erin & Cole :: For Time & All Eternity }

I've had the pleasure of working with a lot of wonderful couples over the last year, but I can honestly say that this wedding was one of the sweetest! Words can't describe the love I have for the Roche family. They have been among our family's closest friends for nearly 20 years. So it's no wonder that I put my heart and soul into these beautiful flowers for their daughter Erin's wedding.

Together Cole & Erin were joined for time and all eternity in the Newport Beach LDS Temple and it was a glorious day to be apart of, as I was privileged to attend the ceremony and later celebrate with them at their Laguna Niguel reception. It was truly a day I will remember fondly forever. Congratulations Erin & Cole. I love you both and wish you all the happiness in the world!

And on a sidenote: The last two pics are my favorite! The DJ was my handsome brother Scotty who I miss like crazy (he's attending school right now at BYU-Hawaii). And the last one is my victory picture! I wore my highest heels in hopes of snatching up that coveted bouquet and I did! I think that means I'm next? Let's hope so!
