M & R

Monya had contacted me when she first began planning her wedding 1.5 years ago. I was able to design her invitations along with her floral decor. Monya and Russ live in Southern California so we did most of our communication over email. About 8 or 9 month into the engagement they planned a trip to San Francisco and I was very excited to finally meet them both! I felt like I knew them like old friends.

Ceremony Location: Crissy Field
Ceremony Coordinator: Lisa from Bellissima Vita Weddings
Reception: San Francisco City Club
Photographer: Augie Chang
Colors: Shades of brown with orange accents

Monya's mom also wrote a very nice letter to me after the wedding.

Dear Karen,
To say that ALL our flowers were drop dead gorgeous would be an understatement. When I first saw the bridal party flowers I looked at Monya and said "WOW.. are these not amazingly beautiful"... of course she agreed. When I delivered the flowers to the guys along with Zoey's pomander & Marta's corsage, Garrett, their Officiant/Best Man told me he'd never seen such pretty flowers,especially Zoey's..that's huge coming from him since he's the "wedding whisperer" :)

I can't begin to tell you what it was like walking into City Club and seeing the centerpieces.. my jaw literally dropped, I was totally blown away, as was Russ (MY Russ!)... 110% elegance with simplicity! I can't tell you how many guests commented on the arrangements, let alone Alison (the City Club director of banquet planning). I was even called yesterday by a friend of a guest asking for your phone number for their daughter's wedding in Fall of 2009 and they haven't even sen pics yet! :)

Again thank you so much for making Monya and Russ's day EXTRA beautiful!



  1. Yay for Monya and Russ!! Karen, those flowers were gorgeous- Monya's bouquet was to die for. You really are the queen!

    And can we mention that you were 8 months pregnant at the time? I'm just sayin'.....

  2. Your flowers get so many compliments. I have more than 2 brides asking me who did them!! thanks for the credit!
