Aime & Riley

I had the pleasure of doing the flowers for a dear friend of mine. We have known each other since grammar school, made it through a strict all girls high school together and she was a bridesmaid at my wedding 18 years ago. Yeah, I'd say we've been through a lot! She had to go all the way to Idaho to find the man of her dreams, but they returned to the Bay Area to get married. The ceremony was at the gorgeous Casa Real in Livermore. It was wedding actually had a number since the venue was so brand new. These are a few pictures during set up, I will post professional shots when I get some. Enjoy!

The table cloths had beautiful sparkling crystals in them that caught the light beautifully. It added to the ambiance of their cosmic - angelic theme.

The angel wings that were imprinted on the invitation, lit up the dance floor. Not a single detail was left out.

The place cards were also the favors. They were very cute little boxes with a pink ribbon and inside were 2 pocket angels and a cute poem.

The year started...

January started out with an all white winter wedding on a yacht in Sausalito. I work a lot with Empress Events and always find it fun decorating one of their beautiful yachts. Their staff is fun and friendly and the food always smells delicious when I'm setting up.

The Bride chose a mixture of fluffy white Peonies flown in from Egypt, tulips, bridal calla lilies, ranunculas and beautiful bloomed garden roses.

The stairway leading up to the top deck where the ceremony takes place was decorated with draping greenery, hydrangea, orchids, roses and ranunculas.

Ceremony under the arch with a beautiful view of the harbor.

Their elegant table decor included a fragrant gardenia on every napkin.

The cake was provided by Beaux Gateaux and I decorated it with a ring of flowers at the base only to carry out the all white, full and fluffy look of the wedding.

And so it began...

Hello to all of you,

Well, I have finally decided to join the "blog bandwagon"! I have tried fighting it for too long. (As you can see I registered back in May and I am finally doing my first post in July). I have many wonderful brides that I work with every week and this is a great way to showcase some of the great ideas and beautiful color schemes that we come up with together. I hope you enjoy!
