Designer wedding gown $ 4,000.00, most sought after photographer $ 9,500.00, organic caterer $ 15,000.00. Your dog as the flower girl...PRICELESS!

That's Cookie up there in all her glory! She belongs to Dawn and Tim, you know, the couple that got married. Yeah, I know, I know...Cookie kinda stold the show. Could it be those bedroom eyes, saggy cheeks, wedding tutu? All of the above...she's rock'in the look! Now, back to Dawn and Tim.
They had a romantic and intimate back yard ceremony with their closest family and friends. Guests were greeted at the red front door with a beautiful floral wreath made with hydrangea, roses, peonies and Fuji mums.

The walkway was lined with silver pails that held white and blue garden favorites, that hung from garden hooks. The pails were later used to add decor at their reception.

Dawn's bouquet was a gorgeous, fluffy white bouquet of white peonies.

To give her bouquet a personal and meaningful touch, I wrapped her Grandmother's pearl necklace around the stems. Little unique details like this, help to make each wedding personal and special to the couple.

The boutonnieres were wrapped in Tiffany Blue ribbon to match the men's ties.

The table centerpieces were all white with various garden flowers.

The couple and their guests celebrated under the stars while cruising the San Francisco Bay on the Empress Yacht.

The whimsical cake topper added to the fun of the night.

Congratulations to the Happy Family!

The Color Purple

Purple and green filled the room at the beautiful Brazilian Room in Berkeley. This lovely March wedding sang of springtime with the use of all tulips.
The Bride carried all white tulips with green berries.
The bridesmaids carried cute bouquets of all purple tulips and green berries that mimicked the table centerpieces.
The Flower girl carried a dainty Bo Peep basket with both colored tulips and heather.
