{ 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!

{ Adam & Shannon :: The Wedding Day }

Do you know what makes a floral designer happier than anything in this world, besides creating gorgeous arrangements? When a bride absolutely loves those gorgeous arrangements that were created especially for her on her big day!

Which is why when I received this message from the bride Shannon and her adoring husband Adam, that I was so elated. It read, "Everything was absolutely gorgeous!! Thank you Aubrey for stellar floral masterpieces!!"

When I read that it made me feel like everything was right in the world! Thank you again Shannon & Adam for your trust and for letting me be a part of such a beautiful and special day. May you live long and love much!
