{ PHIL & BRI :: The Wedding Album }

I am soooo excited about these gorgeous photos that the fabulous Kamee June just shared with me. So excited I couldn't wait more than 24 hours to share them! Back in October I had the pleasure of finishing off my busy 2011 wedding season with my friends Briana & Phil's wedding at the Richard Nixon Library. It was such a pleasure to not only design their flowers, but to be a guest at this very special wedding. For a more detailed look at their picture-perfect day, visit their photographer Kamee June's blog by clicking HERE.

{ Phillip & Briana :: Bouquets & Boutonnieres }

I'm sure many of you already know about my exciting news, but for those of you that don't, this will be the last wedding I'm posting on the blog for a while because....we're expecting!!! Baby Laidlaw is due to arrive early January 2012 and for that reason, I have decided to spend the next 2 months getting ready for our wee-one to arrive.

Of course I'll still post the professional pictures of the ceremony and reception when I receive them, but this is just your heads up that things are going to be slowing down quite a bit around here. But no need to fret, I've already got 3 weddings on the calendar for next year and taking clients starting in mid-March. So please continue to send your referrals my way! Until then, enjoy these dreamy photos of Briana and Phil's wedding flowers.

{ Wedding Sneak Preview :: Richard Nixon Library }

My dear friend Briana, a former co-worker at Fari Custom Home Builders, was married to her darling Phillip this weekend at the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda. Not only was I privileged to attend as a guest, but the couple also asked me to design their flowers.

Over the course of many months Briana and I planned and schemed over lunch dates to make sure the flowers were just right for her perfect day. And even though the anemone, the flower she wanted most, was going to be out-of-season in October, we were lucky enough to find a couple bunches and have them flown in for the big event.

Words cannot even begin to describe how much I loved designing these flowers and how perfectly they fit the bride and her venue - soft, classic, elegance! Here is a little sneak peak from her photographer Kamee June of the happy couple, as well as some snapshots from my iPhone of their stunning reception. Truly, such a beautiful wedding for a beautiful bride!

{ Kevin & Taylor :: El Adobe Wedding }

Almost one year ago I started working with the beautiful bride-to-be Taylor Reynolds and her fiancé (my childhood friend) Kevin Shively. Over the course of many months, together we planned and schemed to make sure their wedding flowers were absolutely exquisite and reflected their vintage style and the rustic elegance of El Adobe Restaurant in Old Towne San Juan Capistrano, the gorgeous location of their wedding. I have to say, I think we nailed it! Just take a look and you'll see what I mean.

{ Design By Aubrey :: 2 Year Anniversary }

It's hard to believe that just 2 short years ago my dear friend Lisa and her fiance Rodney took a chance on me, affording me the opportunity to design the flowers for their summer wedding. I was new on the scene with only a years worth of experience at a flower shop, mostly doing the dirty work. But nonetheless, they put their trust in me and I delightfully accepted the challenge.

Who would have thought that such a small moment in time could carry me so far and make me feel so fulfilled as a designer? And it was nothing short of miraculous that my first design job ended up being featured in one of the most talked about wedding magazines on the shelves, Real Simple Weddings 2010. It's still so unreal!


I can still remember a friend pulling me aside during a party a couple years ago and telling me the simplest words that really had a deep impact on me. He said "Aubrey, your work is really good. You should think about doing this full-time." Coming from someone I really admired and looked up to as an entrepreneur of his own budding photography business, I really let those words soak and thought to myself "Yah, why not do this full-time?"

Now, since that time, It's been an incredible 2 years of designing the wedding flowers for more than 50 brides and almost a dozen private events and parties all over Southern California. To be where I'm at today personally and professionally is truly an accomplishment in and of itself and I could not be happier! Thank you everyone for your love, support, and helping me make a dream come true!

{ Erik & Courtney :: Vintage Reception Flowers }

A couple of weekends ago I had the pleasure of designing the flowers for this whimsical reception at the Lake Forest Country Club for the beautiful bride Courtney and her handsome groom Erik. For the entry arrangement the bride provided me with the most beautiful vase from Anthropologie. I think it looks stunning filled with her wedding colors of orange, peach, ivory, and seafoam green.

For the centerpieces the bride opted for a more vintage look with a collection of glass bottles filled with whispy wildflowers. I love how cheerful her colors make this space. Don't you? And lastly, the groom's mother added on a wreath last minute to top off the fireplace with a little something special. I think it was the perfect touch! Such a gorgeous reception for a gorgeous couple.

{ Erik & Courtney :: Wedding Flowers }

Oh how I love a good vintage wedding! In fact, I kind of feel like every wedding I design these days is "vintage-themed." Which definitely isn't a bad thing. Afterall, who doesn't love a loose wildflower look with antique oranges and seafoam greens? This gorgeous combo just makes me swoon!
