D + D Wedding | Presidio Chapel of My Lady | San Francisco

I try to take photos of all my weddings in its entirety but the reality is that I just don't have enough time to do so.  Sometimes I only have a moment to snap shots of the bouquets before I deliver them or I get a couple of minutes at the reception to take photos of the centerpieces.  As much as I like to show weddings with all of the different floral elements including bouquets, bouts, ceremony and reception I don't always get to do that!  But I feel like it would be a shame not to show some pictures of these lovely bouquets and ceremony flowers of a July wedding earlier this year.

Bride's Bouquet with peonies, roses, garden roses, hydrangea, orchids, freesia,
calla lilies and purple crystal spray accents

Bridesmaid Bouquets with a variety of roses and dahilas

Ceremony arrangements with smilax garland strung along the pews
with pew bouquets.

K+C Wedding | Acqua Hotel | Mill Valley

When I first met with Katie the first thing she told me is "no roses."  She wanted something fun and modern that matched the decor of her venue.  She really liked those anemones with the black centers but they were not season.  So we went with the Gerber daisies with dark centers - a pretty good substitute if you like those anemones.  My favorite thing about this wedding?  It was definitely the donut table.  Decorating the table was pure torture.  Looking at the pictures just now makes me want to hit up the nearest donut store (which happens to be called Pyscho Donuts.  Very telling, huh?)
Okay - moving on to the pictures.

H+C Wedding| Palm Event Center| Pleasanton

I would have to say that Helen and Chris were one of the most laid back couples that I worked with this year.  Their personalities really came through the wedding day - everyone in the wedding party had smiles on their faces and you could see that everyone was enjoying themselves.   They chose a beautiful venue - The Palm Event Center in Pleasanton.  I was thrilled to find out that I would be working with the very talented photographer Sarah K Chen again.  I worked with Sarah when she captured Cathleya and Mark's Wedding a couple of years ago!

Here are a couple of images I got from the ceremony and reception:

A special thanks to my sister and nieces for helping with this wedding!

E + H Wedding | Angwin Private Estate | Calistoga

When I met with Erika she told me that her wedding will be held at a private estate in Angwin.  My first thought was, where the heck is Angwin?  So I looked it up on Google Maps and it's this tiny city north of Calistoga.  I have to say, it's beautiful there.  She found a private estate to rent from the owner and had a beautiful garden wedding.  Erika wanted big, fluffy flowers so of course we had to use peonies.

Spray rose bouts and corsages

Bride's Bouquet: Roses, peonies, freesia, spray roses, stock, lisanthus and sweetpea

Centerpiece - the tables were in the hot sun so we staged the in the shade 
and waited until it was closer to the reception time.
