Tiffany & Howard

I loved Tiffany and Howard's wedding. First of all, they got married where I did so I was so happy to go back and visit. They were so easy going and fun to chat with and they loved color! The colors they used were vibrant and really popped outdoors.

Venue: Thomas Fogarty Winery
Photographer: Melissa Ann Bagley
Cake: Sonja with Bravo's Bakery (She made my cake too!)
DJ: Henry with Big Fun DJ
Caterer: Michael with Continental Caterers

The Bride's bouquets was heavier on the red and dark pinks with
orange vanda orchids and stephanotis flowers.

Bridesmaid Bouquets:
Milva, cherry brandy, hot princess roses with flame callas,
green orchids wrapped with a banana leaf collar.

Father Boutonierre - I forgot to take pictures of the groom's bout
and groomsmen bouts. I was too busy! Oh well....

Nanda & Bobby

Nanda was one of my most enthusiastic brides! I helped Nanda design her invitations and flowers. I loved being a part of the process and since I knew what her invites looked like it was really easy to figure out her flower colors and general theme. It was a lot of fun to plan with her. Here are the details!

Venue: Terra in San Francisco
Colors: Ivory, Champagne/Gold and Chocolate Brown

Matching Candy Buffet Monogram

Kermit mum ring pillows for the Ring Bearers.

Kermit mum pomander for the Flower Girl.

Bridesmaid Bouquets: 2 shades of ivory roses, orchids, chocolate cosmos,
calla lilies and hypericum berries

Toss Bouquet

Bride's Bouquet: 3 shades of ivory roses, garden roses,
calla lilies, dahlias and feather collar

Nanda had cocktail tables and tables around the room. Three gardenia cocktail centerpieces were placed on each cocktail table and the large tables had tall vases with feathers and orchids. I hope to get a picture of it from her so I can post it!

I've been trying to figure out how to let you know when I have updated my blog and I think I have finally got it! You can sign up to the left and I'll send you an email so you know when to visit.

I also have a couple of more pictures from the Passiflora weekend. Kate (one of the designers) made the cutest coffee table arrangement for the "Apple Orchard" wedding reception I mentioned earlier.

These bad boys were going to line the reception room. A total of 10 of them!

I have 2 weddings coming up so more pictures to come soon!

A Present For Me!

My friend Nicole took a letterpress class over at the San Francisco Center for the Book. I took a couple myself it's a lot of fun learning about letterpress and you get to make stuff to take home! If you are even remotely interested in letterpress I suggest you check out their workshops. Spots fill up quickly so I suggest you sign up soon if you want to get in on some of the action.

Anyway - Nicole made some super cute coasters and wrapped them in a really cute way.

She used petal enclosures from Paper Source - punched a whole in it and srtung some ribbon through and voila! Super cute presentation.

Cute lining

Tami & Mike

Tami & Mike got married last weekend at the Fairmont Mission Inn in Sonoma, California. Everybody was a delight to work with. The venue provides the reception centerpieces so Tami needed help with the personal flowers and ceremony decor. Here are the details!

Colors: Burgundy, shades of white and accent yellows
Location: Sonoma Mission Inn, Sonoma, CA
The coordinator Kelly was so great to work with. There were 2 weddings for that day and mine was the second one. It was a busy day but everything went pretty smoothly and everyone pitched in to help get things done. It was really great!
Day of Coordinator: Noreen with Dream A Little Dream Events. I love Noreen! She is so easy going and I was happy to see her again.

Tami was unsure whether she wanted a white bouquet or a burgundy one.
So I made both for her so she could pick the day of!

White Bouquet: 3 shades of white roses with white calla lilies

Burgundy Bouquet: Black Bakara roses, black beauty roses and burgundy callas.

Bridesmaid Bouquets were 2 shades of white roses with call lilies.
It was a smaller version of the bride's bouquet

Flower girl baskets


Ceremony Arch. Does this look familar?!
I made a similar one for Maggie & Mike's wedding in June.

Pew bouquets tied to the chairs.
Black bakara roses, calla lily, berries and yellow freesia.

After the ceremony, we moved the pew bouquets over to the escort card tables.

I also moved the garland from the arch to the fireplace.

The reception flowers were designed by Richard the event florist
for Sonoma Mission Inn. The flowers really added color to the room.

I had some left over black beauties so I put together a little bouquet for the cake table.
