J + R Wedding | Golden Gate Club in Presidio | San Francisco

When Jenny and I met - we hit it off instantly! She wanted bright and fun florals that incorporated the color orange and succulents. She liked "spiky" flowers with lots of texture for the bouquets and wheatgrass for the reception centerpieces. We had a lot of fun brainstorming ideas and I loved how Jenny allowed me some creative freedom.

Venue: Golden Gate Club in San Francisco
Caterer: Melons Catering

I was surprised and completely honored when Rick from The Knot Weddings called me to share that I was selected to be the "Best of Weddings" Floral Designer for 2010. Every year the The Knot surveys brides to survey for the best venues and vendors in the wedding industry. I'm suppose to be getting a placque in the mail pretty soon and I can't wait to hang it on the wall in my studio! Thank you to everyone who has supported and voted for me. Here's to a great upcoming year!

Bouquet Breakdown

One of my favorite bouquets from 2009 from Kim & Matt's Wedding. Kim wanted something fun and fluffy and she loved craspedia (also known as billy buttons)!

I usually only breakdown bouquets but I thought it would be nice to include the matching groom's boutonierre from this wedding. It was so cute!

B & S Wedding | The Cliff House | San Francisco

Beverly and Safdar met with me while they were out visiting from New York. It's not easy to plan a wedding when you live across the country but they did a wonderful job. It was my first time at The Cliff House in San Francisco and the one thing I noticed was how wonderful the staff was. They were so willing to help and so nice. I give them a big thumbs up!
