Featured Real Wedding.

The beautiful summer wedding of Jessica and Minh was a crisp and fresh color combination of green and white. Calla lilies and orchids were used throughout the Brazilian Room in Berkeley, with a lovely backdrop of the rolling hills. A very special moment of the day was when a double rainbow appeared, setting the scene for an awesome photo op! Please click on the photo above to view the photos and read about the special day as featured in "Real Weddings" from San Francisco Style Unveiled.

Honoring All Who Have Served.


The very least we can do everyday, but especially today is say "Thank You".

It's no secret I love to bake, it's my way of winding down. I enjoy themed desserts for every occasion. Flowers and dessert...what more could a girl ask for!
In honor of our Soldiers, both women and men, I would like to extend an offer from today until February 1, 2010. Any bride or groom with a Military I.D. that books their wedding with Floralisa will receive 10% off their flower total, up to $ 250.00 (Two Hundred Fifty Dollars).
Wedding must be booked between 11/11/09 - 2/1/10. Wedding does not have to be between those dates, just booked within those dates. Percentage will be taken off flower total (before tax and delivery fee). Military I.d. must be presented at time of order for offer to be valid.

I Love the Fall Season.

With the weather changing and the leaves turning and the rich saturated colors of fall, I find myself in the car a lot, just driving around and taking in the scenery. If you haven't been to the wine country lately, give yourself a treat and take a ride. The scenery is breathtaking! The grapevines are turning orange and gold and you can still see some with purple grapes. Here is a wedding that shows all the vibrant colors of fall, complete with fall leaves sprinkled about and little bags of sunflower seeds for each guest.

Boutonnieres were all mini sunflowers except for the groom who had a mango calla. Accents of oak leaves and berries were added to all.

Love the use of leaves instead of the usual rose petals sprinkled around the tables.

Cute wedding favors made by the bride.

Sunshine on the Bay.

What a beautiful day to get married, especially when your exchanging vows on the gorgeous San Francisco Bay.

The Bride and Groom chose bright yellow as their main wedding color and wanted a lot of roses used throughout. The guy's boutonnieres kept with the nautical theme by having seashells as accents.
They look so cute!

As the guests entered the yacht, they could drop their well wishes in the themed treasure chest.

These beautiful wreaths were the guest table centerpieces. A bowl with a fragrant floating gardenia was set in the middle of each wreath.

The romantic sweetheart table smelled divine with all the yellow rose petals.

The flower girl baskets were adorned with sea shells and crystals (very cute), and filled guessed it! Yellow rose petals.
Another shot of the arch that overlooked the Sausalito yacht harbor. Congratulations to the happy couple that traveled from Stockton to treat their dearest family and friends to a beautiful celebration on the bay.

Chardonnay...need I say more.

Congratulations to Kristine and Marvin who had a beautiful wedding at Chardonnay Golf Club in Napa among a large festive group of their family and friends.

The Bride carried a fluffy all white bouquet with callas, rose and orchids to name a few.

The 7 bridesmaids carried a mix of white and bright pink callas.

The entire tent was draped in white with only little spashes of pink on the head table. All 21 guest tables sparkled in all white with 4 glass cylinders and candlelight on each table. White paper lanters gave it a fun festive look. Imagine what it looked like at romantic!

Wine and Romance

A perfect summer evening in the wine country. The celebration took place at the beautiful castle like setting of V. Sattui winery. The sweet scent of Casablanca and pink Oriental lilies wafted through the caves of the barrel room. Candlelight flickered softly throughout the venue and the bride looked stunning.

The bride requested a traditional cascade bouquet of lilies, orchids and roses with an accent of blush pink.

The bridesmaids carried hand tied bouquets in pink with accents of white.

The boutonnieres and corsages were made with roses and dendrobium orchids.

Both mothers stepped away from tradition and took a more modern route with small nosegays to carry. This is a great alternative to pinning flowers on some of the more delicate dress fabrics.

The aisle was lined with rose petals in ivory, pink and hot pink.

Small rose bowls with bear grass decorated the place card table and the cocktail tables surrounding the beautiful fountain in the upper courtyard. The team at Quintana Events put the finishing touches on the place card table. Everything runs smoothly with the expertise of Alex and Debbie, one of my favorite Event Companies to work with.

The table centerpieces were in glass urns with clear and colored pink stones at the bottom and were filled with large open pink lilies. They really popped on the black linens at the reception.

Don't you just love the sweetheart tables at V. Sattui. That half circle shape is great.

Judy from True Confections Cakes made this beautiful 3 tier cake. She was spot on with the pattern. The cake blends in perfectly with the table linen.

Mock ups

Couples sometimes have a hard time picturing the centerpieces or bouquets that are described on the order. Even if they have a picture of something they love, they may not be able to imagine it in their color scheme. I get asked sometimes by my clients, " Do you do mock-ups?" The answer is, "Yes, I do!" It is always most important to me that any Bride or client that I work with feel comfortable and confident with their choices. It is my goal to give that WOW! factor to each client (and their guests) when they see the bouquets or the decor.

These photos are recent "mock-ups" made for clients. Please watch for them in upcoming weddings and events.
